We managed to get our coolest resident DJ’s back again for 2019 at OKMF – whoop whoop! and not forgetting Tommy Gun, DJ Chop and Antic now added to the mix…
Thabo Mfazo, better known as Dj Chopa has been in love with Electronic Dance Music (EDM) since 2010 and was eager to discover more about this genre of music which was very scarce in Botswana. The love and passion intensively grew as he got to follow local EDM Dj’s, a local EDM radio show and attending events with one or two Dj’s playing Electronic Dance Music.
The love and passion for Dj’ing came about through the discovery of a well renowned Electronic Dance Music festival in 2012, Tomorrowland, where he was inspired by the ability of Dj’s to make massive crowds dance and create memories through this music. Eager to learn more about Dj’ing, Chopa learned about a computer software program, “Virtual DJ” and started teaching himself by blending and mixing tracks.
This led to discovery of various subgenres under the Electronic Dance Music genre which included; Tropical House, Progressive House, Dance, House, Future House and Future Bass just to name a few. In 2016 Chopa began varsity and merged both his love for Dj’ing and school life. Chopa further mastered this craft until he enrolled at Next Best Dj Academy in 2018, a professional and licensed Dj School, where he was exposed to real Dj’ing equipment and continued to nurture his skills and talent behind the decks.
Still in 2018, he got his first mix aired on the local radio station, Yarona FM, boosting his Dj career as he landed gigs at various night clubs like Chez Nicholas, Linga Longa Restaurant and other events. Chopa was motivated and went on to become a regular at a popular restaurant and the same radio station his first mix was aired on.
Still in his early 20’s, Chopa is hungry for opportunities to make his brand known beginning right here in Botswana and at the same time balancing his studies with his passion of becoming a superstar Dj.

Best known for his uplifting melodies and swanky grooves, Tommy Gun has always leaned towards the lighter side of dance music as a DJ. Schooled in the classics yet with a modern sensibility, he strikes a rare balance between feeding the proverbial beast on the dancefloor and presenting it with something new.
Tommy Gun honed his craft over a ten-year period as resident DJ and promoter of the pioneering ‘Untamed Youth’ club night in Cape Town. The first of its kind, Untamed Youth introduced local crowds to a new wave of indie/electronic and disco sounds and proved to be a solid platform for up-and-coming DJ’s and performers alike.
Inspired to reach out to new and diverse audiences, he has played at most major clubs and festivals across South Africa as well as internationally in London, Copenhagen and Istanbul. He has also featured alongside respected international artists such as Classixx, Marcus Marr, Para One, The 2 Bears and Jacques Renault.
Cant wait to groove in the Delta to Tommy Gun's tunes!
A fixture on the Cape Town and South African circuit since the turn of the century, and one of South Africa’s hardest working DJs, it’s at clubs and festival across the country where Marshall can be found playing his signature sound of melodious, left-of-centre house and techno music, with a fair margin for mash-ups on the side. Stand out sets across the US in 2016 and 2017 occurred on both the east and west coasts, and he has frequented DJ boxes across Europe.
DanTempo is a lover of all things good-quality-music but he maintains a first love for the lower slung BPM's in life. Dan has been collecting music spanning multiple genres for a little over 2 decades and believes storytelling through DJing exists in both the tracks themselves, and the influences poured over them from the classics they've drawn inspiration from, in many instances, a lineage unknown. Because of this, Dan is versatile and loves an opportunity to to play outside the expected, while paying very special attention to the environment and energy in which his sets are being delivered.
