    DJ Sumbody was ‘Tshwane’s finest’, says regional ANC

    The killing of popular DJ Sumbody had cut short the life of “Tshwane’s finest innovators”, said the Tshwane ANC.


    The ANC in Tshwane expressed sadness on the gruesome killing of Oupa Sefoka, better known as DJ Sumbody.

    DJ Sumbody was killed in the early hours of Sunday morning when he was gunned down in a hail of bullets in Johannesburg. The passenger in the car was also killed. According to social media posts, the second deceased person was the DJ’s bodyguard named Sbu.

    ANC spokesperson Bafuze Yabo said the regional party joined thousands of people across the country who mourned DJ Sumbody’s life.

    “This senseless killing has cut short the promising life of one of Tshwane’s finest innovators, a music producer and a pioneer of Amapioano music, co-founder of Ayepyep Lifestyle and a trailblazer in his own right.”

    Yabo said the DJ’s promising future came to a gruesome end while he still had much more to offer the industry. This has brought untold grief to many, he said.

    “The nature of this crime is a graphic depiction of the kind of mafia state our country is degenerating into – with crime and thuggery permeating all corners of society… As the ANC in Greater Tshwane Region, we extend our sincerest condolences to his family, friends and all those whose lives DJ Sumbody touched during his time with us,” said Yabo.

    The DJ was born and raised in Pretoria, starting his education at Sunnyside Primary School. He then moved to Bokgoni Technical High School in Pretoria before studying at the Tshwane University of Technology.

    He pursued his dream career in the music industry and started off as a volunteer producer and presenter at a community radio station in Tshwane.

    But his life came to an end on the corner of Woodmead Drive and Woodland Drive at around 00h30 on Sunday morning.

    A VW Golf was found with scores of bullet holes, with the driver and the passenger shot dead.

    A third person, who drove a BMW X5, was also shot but survived and is currently recovering in hospital.
