Long before DJ Euphonik, as he’s now known, was a staple on the party scene, the young Themba Nkosi was in business. “My first job was actually at home. My parents used to give me a list of chores. And each one of those chores had a value attached to it – that’s how I made money. So I’d say my first job was as a home executive.”

Euphonik, now 31, has become a fully-fledged businessman with an impressive portfolio of ventures in the music, property and retail industries. With a slew of hit albums, the hitmaker has also designed shoes for luxury sneaker brand Superga, owns a clothing store in Braamfontein called Debut and has more than 10 properties in his name.

A self-proclaimed techie, the music mogul sat down with DESTINY MAN at the boutique hotel, 54 on Bath, in leafy Rosebank, to discuss business, music and the importance of hard work.
