Miss Pru shares a slice of her life

A day in the life of a DJ during the festive season

One of the most popular deejays in South Africa, Miss Pru says her job is fun and glamourous. But it still needs hard work and discipline. This is a typical day in her life...

“I believe in a healthy lifestyle so the first thing I do in the morning is jog. This is followed by going to photoshoots or interviews. I love talking about my life and job because it gives my fans the opportunity to see where my career is going. Next comes preparation for my show, The Sound Evolution, on Touch Central. It airs from 8pm to 10pm. I always prepare ahead of time because I want my listeners to get the best show possible. My day ends with a live performance at a club or an event. This is my favourite time of day as I get to connect with the audience. I make sure to create a great vibe.

I went to deejaying school to learn the basic skills of deejaying, mental skills training, confidence coaching, controlling sound, strategic marketing, branding and technical skills, like how to use deejaying equipment.

To be a deejay, you need good listening skills, a good ear for rhythm, beats, and melody and know how to read the crowd’s mood and emotions so you can take them on a journey.

Miss Pru also teaches deejaying skills at Fuse DJ academy.
