MAJOR LEAGUE DJz
Major League Djz is a live deejay group from South Africa that consists of twin brothers that go by the name of Bandile and banele. One is deejay and the other is a percussionist. Proudly South African with an american background, Major League Djz are powering the Amapiano Movement across the world.
Born in Boston, USA, the twins moved to South Africa after the apartheid era. Being exposed to music at a very young age, Major League DJz were highly influenced by the sounds of Jazz and Hip-Hop music which ushered them into the entertainment industry in their early teens. Major League DJz consists of twins Bandile and Banele.
The duo’s vision is to use music to unify youth across Africa. Major League DJz aspire to play music for Africa by Africans in an attempt to change the perception of African Hip Hop. The twins are well on their way to achieving this goal through their Urban Breeze events which currently occur weekly in the Alexandra township and have steered up a generous Hip Hop following in an otherwise House music dominated territory.
The twins have hosted parties for the likes of 50 Cent, Akon and Fat Joe, and have played alongside both local and international artists such as DJ Fresh, Euphonik, Roger Goode, DJ Trauma, DJ Drama and DJ Woo Kid. Major League DJz can be spotted at all the hottest clubs and parties across South Africa. Young, talented and good looking, Major League DJz are the full package. Official DJs for Khuli Chana and Soul Candi eventorganisers,the twins are at the forefront of the youth market. Major League DJz provide weekly mixes for uKhozi FM and Mafikeng FM and are ambassadors for the McDonald’s Street Rhythm campaign. The duo has released several hit songs, and mixes, and two EPs, one being a collaborative effort with Senzo Afrika. They became very popular for some of their mixes including the “Amapiano Live Balcony Mix”, “Destination South Africa Hip-hop Mix”.
MAJOR LEAGUE DJz: THE AMAPIANO PRODUCER AND DJ DUO HOSTED A TWO LONG SET AT BALCONY MIX XPERIENCE
Major League DJz are claiming the world record for longest-ever DJ set by a duo, following a staggering 75-hour long stint from September 2 to September 4. The amapiano legends achieved the feat during a Balcony Mix Xperience stream, a popular series kicked off during the pandemic, that invites some of the biggest names in African electronic music to play live on its balconies across Johannesburg. With the mission to “take amapiano to the world” the producer/DJ duo whose real names are Bandile and Banele Mbere, spent 75 hours DJing for the likes of DJ Speedsta, rapper Tshego, Zakes Bantwini, Karyendasoul and EFF leader Julius Malema who were all in attendance but infortunately it isn't an "official" record due to no one from Guinness World Records being in attendance.
