"He basically started DJing at the age of one - that's when we discovered that he had love for music," said his father, Glen Hlongwane, before Arch Junior took to the 1s and 2s with his signature red Beats headphones. The crowd went absolutely wild, including SA's Got Talent judge DJ Fresh, who sent the 3-year-old straight to the show's semi-finals with the last "Golden Buzzer" of the year.
