Social media have started to spread some controversial rumors about the South African disc jockey and radio presenter Dj Sumbody’s cause of death after reports claimed he passed away on November 20, 2022, at the age of 42.

May the unforgettable artist rest in power; we send our deepest sympathies to his friends, family, and loved ones in this difficult period.

Oupa John Sefoka well known as ‘DJ Sumbody’ heralded the entertainment industry into a refreshing era with the catchy, repetitious, and authentically Pretorian sound of ‘Amapiano.’

The serial entrepreneur was born and raised in West Park, Pretoria on June 9. He was not a stranger to the music scene at all. The artist who came to fame for his hit songs, Ayepyep and Monate Mpolaye, kicked off transporting commuters on morning taxi ways to raise funds to buy vinyl in high school.

By the time he reached his second year at the Tshwane University of Technology, he could no longer ignore his passion for music and dropped out in order to pursue his career as a professional House DJ.

“When promoters wouldn’t book me, I created my own events and hosted street bashes to create a following in my hood,” stated the DJ. He also went on to volunteer at a community radio station in Tshwane.
