DJ Shimza has done something some of the biggest artists around the world can only really dream of. Even at the zenith of the most recognisable careers in pop culture, not many artists have been able to create lasting social movements and experiences that centre primarily on their own catalogue. Think about it.
Ten years ago, DJ Shimza initiated his now iconic One Man Show, a musical outift which now attracts some of the hottest acts across the continent. What's more, the sell out show has not outgrown it's home in the township, where thousands conclude their festive holiday celebrations with an unforgettable experience.

The brains and creative genius that built this show were honed and shaped in Tembisa, Gauteng, where Shimza first found his love for music. That's just one thing. Shimza has been able to cultivate such a loyal mass following that returns to stamp his event as the best every year.

How was he really able to build the iconic show? How did he learn to put together a solid house joint? DJ Shimza chronicles his experiences in between sick sets on Red Bull Presents: Beyond The Sound, Thursdays at 21:00 on Channel O, DStv channel 320.
