3-Year-Old South African DJ Star Arch Jnr Crowned The Winner Of SA’s Got Talent

Watch 3-year-old South African DJ sensation Arch Jnr emerge victorious as the winner of SA's Got Talent.


After blowing television audiences and DJ Fresh away last month as the youngest contestant to appear on SA’s Got Talent, toddler South African DJ sensation Arch Jnr emerged victorious on last night’s finale of the e.tv reality show.

The victory makes three-year-old Oratilwe Hlongwane the youngest contestant to win the global Got Talent TV series, Pulse Radio reports.

In addition to bragging rights for life, Arch Jnr will receive an R500,000 ($35,000 USD) grand prize.

e.tv spoke with Arch Jr’s father shortly after the win. “You know, for a three-year-old, I’m blown away,” Glen Hlongwane says about his son. “Nevermind him winning the competition. The fact that he stood on stage, he did a set and finished it, and still clicked stop. I don’t know of any other three-year-old that will stand there without their parents.”

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
