Early Life

Nkosi was born in Mpumalanga, South Africa on December 6, 1983. He spent his childhood in Likazi, later moving to Klerksdorp, and then Benoni. His early love of music was fueled by artists his father listened to – the likes of The Spinners, Marvin Gaye, Stimela, and Hugh Masekela.[2] He started DJing during his late teens and quickly established himself in the club music scene. It wasn’t long before his mixes achieved radio play, initially on regional station YFM. He was then offered the opportunity to host his own shows on national radio station 5FM.

Mentoring

Euphonik put together an annual one-day workshop called DJ-101. The workshop was used to share his knowledge about the music and DJ industry with those who aspire to have a career in the industry. He also ran a one-year Mentorship Programme, Phuture DJs, where he took two upcoming DJs from around the country and taught them the ins and outs of the DJ world. At the conclusion of the Mentorship Programme, the two DJs and Euphonik produced a CD together for local release and national promotion. He is an ambassador for the Bridges For Music charity in South Africa and mentors young South African electronic musicians and DJs in their creative development.
