DJ Tira wanted to be a professional soccer player.
But his educated parents demanded that he stick to his studies.
Hence he graduated with a degree in human resources before venturing into showbizz.
Soccer is still close to his heart. As a result, he put together a DJ Tira Soccer pre-party at Boulevard Club in Morningside on Friday.
The event was planned to complement the MTN8 final match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at Moses Mabhida stadium on Saturday evening.
The weather was lovely and the soccer pre-party was “happening”. People kept flocking in until the early hours of Saturday.
There was a strong line-up of heavy-weight performers such as Mkhonzeni Langa, aka Professor, who mesmerised the crowd with his new song Ama-side effects.
Security personnel worked tirelessly trying to keep the fans from Professor while he was performing.
Before his set began, Professor had been flooded by fans who wanted him to pose for selfies with them.
Another artist that proved to be a hit, Duncan, also showed how strong he was growing as the crowd sang along with him.
Other artists that performed were Naakmusiq and Junior Derock.
