DJ Okapi

Convinced vinyls digger in his Johannesburg hometown, DJ Okapi becomes a real ambassador of South African sonorities and makes this culture last for next generations, as a natural gift. It is by his connexions, his experience and will that he could reform a group such as Ntombi Ndaba & Esa's Afro-Synth Band, a South African figure in the 80's.

From the initiative of his blog Afro Synth that evolves quickly in online store then a label and physical record store in Johannesburg, he reaches to revive bubblegum's and kwaito's hype. Throughout his colored DJ sets and his mixtapes, recognized by diggers from all parts of the world, he assessed the challenge of offering the deserved light for this forgotten musical sonorities.
