Julius Malema is a DJ! And the perception that he doesn’t like anything to do with white people is false – in fact, he was romantically involved with a white lady in the past.
The Commander in Chief of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), 33, revealed his non-political passion and white people’s connection on Katch It With Khanyi – the e.tv show hosted by actress, dancer, columnist and socialite Khanyi Mbau – on Monday evening.
Known for his controversial bold statements that often create racial tension, Malema, born in Seshego, appeared to be chilled and answered all questions in a calm manner during his interview. Some of the questions asked by Khanyi, who describes Julius as her ‘personal president’, include: Do you hate white people? Malema said it is not true that he hates white people – and he added: “I did at some point dated a white lady… but briefly.”
On the entertainment side, the host asked if the former ANC Youth League president – whose favourite DJ is Louie Vega and Black Coffee – is still a DJ. “Yes, I play for private guests, not in public,” Malema admitted.
The Seshego-born DJ – who has been trained by DJ Mahoota, real name Zane Sibika – has also been a once-off Metro FM presenter when he co-hosted a drive-time slot with TV presenter Minnie Dlamini in 2011.
