The search for Mzansi’s next best DJ re­turns with re­al­ity com­pe­ti­tion show 1s And 2s (2014-cur­rent), where con­tes­tants have to master turnta­bles to stay in the game. The hope­fuls need to prove to DJ Naves, DJ Sphec­tac­ula and a weekly guest judge that their spin­ning is on-point to win stu­dio equip­ment and a record deal val­ued at R100 000, but un­like pre­vi­ous sea­sons, the con­tes­tants will now take part in two re­ward chal­lenges that could push them through to the next bat­tles. “It’s ex­cit­ing,” says host Thando Tha­bethe (Nol­wazi on Gen­er­a­tions The Le­gacy, see p14). “The show dis­cov­ers home-grown tal­ent and it’s al­ways a great ex­pe­ri­ence be­ing a part of that jour­ney!”

What sep­a­rates 1s And 2s from the other shows you’ve been part of? It’s about groom­ing new tal­ent and I like be­ing a part of all that. And I’m work­ing with a team of peo­ple who think on their feet and adapt – and I learn from that. And your favourite sec­tion of the show is… The Ra­dio Show Chal­lenge! I’m a ra­dio girl and it’s al­ways ex­cit­ing to see the con­tes­tants sweat on this one. It tests and proves to ev­ery­one that ra­dio isn’t as easy as they think. Have you learnt any DJ tricks from the judges and con­tes­tants? Yes! I started DJing just af­ter sea­son 1, so I can def­i­nitely say that spend­ing time on set has con­trib­uted to me be­ing a bet­ter DJ [Laughs]. What part of the sea­son stands out for you? When we get to crown the Master Of Spin in the fi­nal episode. It’s a great ex­pe­ri­ence and a learn­ing curve see­ing the win­ner in high spir­its, know­ing that we’ve helped them start their dream ca­reer path.
