It is with great difficulty that we share the news of Mzwandile Nzimande’s passing earlier today, as confirmed by his family. DJ 1D, as he was affectionately known, was the pioneering co-founder of the iconic streetwear brand – Loxion Kulca, a storyteller and a highly accomplished figure in the South African music scene. His passion for telling South African stories was evident in one of his recent projects —SABC 1’s Evolution of Mzansi Street Culture. He spent a decade behind the decks as Kaya 959’s resident DJ, where many were blessed to experience his friendship and endlessly imaginative musical talent.
“Wandi was a friend and brother to so many staff members. We will miss his genuine interactions with people in the building and the work ethic he brought into every mix. It has been a real honour working with a cultural icon like him”- Ncebakazi Manzi, Kaya 959’s Acting Programming Manager.
The Kaya 959 family sends its condolences and prayers to DJ 1D’s family.
