Her new Instagram account, Gogo Skhotheni The Dj, which was created just yesterday, already has more than 3 000 followers.
In another post the reality star told her fans that she is “so excited to be rocking with y’all, this festive season”.
Skhotheni has already booked her first gig. She’ll be spinning the decks at Koko Lounge in Mpumalanga on Saturday, October 28, along with DJ Sgo, Tazz, Sunsoul, Manox and DeepTee.
