Dj Happy Gal


Dj Happy Gal is a leading South African Dj. She specialises in House and Kwaito music, but due to her vast knowledge and collection of music, she can adapt he playlist to suit the necessary mood for any gig she is booked for. In 2006, after matriculating, she packed her bags and set off for Durban to do a Diploma in Human Resources Management at the Durban University of Technology.

A year later Happy Gal met a fellow student and she was also an aspirant DJ, who taught her the basics of the DJ business. Happy Gal says she became a DJ because she always had a passion for spinning discs, though it was difficult since she comes from a rural area. Her blooming career has helped take care of her family as a breadwinner. She is proof that hard work and perseverance pays off.
