The 21-year-old from Chatsworth making history

Jashen Joel Govindsamy - more popularly known as DJ Jashmir, has been making waves and history for the last two months, inspiring young DJs from Durban to follow their dreams and use their creativity during the pandemic. It does not get more creative than turning a well-known cellphone ringtone into a certified smash hit. This is what DJ Jashmir has done. The young Chatsworth DJ created an Amapiano remix of the iPhone ringtone.

Jashmir used the default iPhone ringtone and mixed it with Amapiano, which he called: 'What if the iPhone ringtone was made in South Africa'. The #AmaiPhoneChallenge, which is a dance challenge that has taken Tik Tok by storm, has had over 4.4-million hits on Tik Tok to date, which are history making numbers for a South African creative.

The #AmaiPhoneChallenge has gone beyond African borders, garnering global appeal. Jsbu caught up with the young creative, listen to the interview here.
