DJ Fresh paid a moving tribute to record label producer and the king of the decks Oskido for launching his career. 

The “Fresh On 947” presenter took it back to the ’90s when Oskido helped launched his career. 

DJ Fresh was responding to a tweet from his US comedian and TV show host Steve Harvey who during his game show “Family Feud,” delivered as a powerful message of encouragement. 

He said: “Never wait on the right time, cause the right time ain't never coming. The devil's job is to rob you of your destiny. So there will always be an obstacle. So if you are waiting on the right time, you'll never make your move. Move on your idea now, don't wait. JUMP!”

The tweet took DJ Fresh down memory lane to when he met Oskido nearly three decades ago, he said: ”Wow!!! This Story reminds me of December 12 1992! Was still learning how to mix! Introduced myself to @OskidoIBelieve at a gig... he needed a quick loo break and asked me to play the next song!!! Was poop scared but wasn’t about to tell him that I am still learning…”

Hailing his mentor and friend for granting his an opportunity to shine, he added: “I jumped right in coz I was not gonna get another chance like this, ever!! Mix actually worked out... I looked around ... still no Oskido!! Mixed the next record .... and a friendship was born!!! Will forever love this man coz that day changed my self-belief and trajectory!!”

Fans joined in to honour Oskido who has worked with the likes of Boom Shaka, Bongo Maffin, Trompies, Mafikizolo, Thebe, Alaska, Professor, Uhuru, Dr Malinga Black Motion, Zonke, Winnie Khumalo, DJ Zinhle, Busiswa and Candy Tsamandebele and many more.
