DJ Stacey


“I was born in a small town called Kimberley, in the Northern Cape. I am the youngest of 3 sisters. I started DJing at the tender age of just 12 years old. Then matriculated in 2007 and took my Djing more serious, traveling South Africa for gigs. I started college in 2008 but dropped out in 2010. In 2016, I went back to varsity to finish my degree, and received 23 distinctions and the floating trophy for the best student in a degree.

I also completed my honours degree the following year focusing on Health Communication. The paper mainly focused on depression in women on colour and how women have been labelled as “crazy” and “mad” when they suffer from mental health issues and my recommendations focused on how we can break the stigma and provide proper treatment and care for people and even children, suffering with depression. Writing the paper was like therapy for me as I also suffered from depression previously. I think the reason I excelled in my studies was due to me having experienced many things in life at the point when I went back to complete my degree. Living through certain events in life such as pain, loss, heartbreak and mental illness, enabled me to successfully apply subject content with real life examples. So ironically, though one of my biggest fears is failure, I thrived in my life after facing some major setbacks and failures.  

I currently work as a Senior Administrative Assistant in the department of English, and I’m also a learning facilitator (tutor) for first year Communication students at the University of the Free State. Furthermore, I received an accredited TEFL certificate that allows me to teach English as a foreign language anywhere in the world. 

I am a true extrovert, outspoken and would strike up a conversation with anyone. I often engage in topics such politics, socioeconomics and the covid pandemic. I’m not afraid to speak my mind and call out our leaders on their failures. My TikTok page has grown to over one-hundred and fifty thousand followers and 1.9 million likes. On Instagram I have over 3400 followers and more than 70 thousand followers on Facebook. 

I also share inspiring and motivating videos and stories with my followers and try to create a light and positive environment for all. I’m a believer in God. I pray often and my strength truly comes from God. I help people where and when I can, and I believe in vibes and energies. If your intentions are real and true, I can feel it and we’ll bounce off each other’s energy. Conversely, if someone gives me bad vibes, I try to understand why they are the way they are and may end up being in a discussion with them about it. My favourite question is “WHY?” If ever you wanted to know which person I am in a room full of people, I’m the one laughing very loudly or chatting up a storm with groups of people, unless I’m hungry, I will be the angry one looking for a snack.”


1. What’s your biggest achievement / Something you’re proud of yourself for?

“I think I’m most proud of completing my degree in Communication and doing an honours degree. Additionally, I’m also extremely proud of being able to lift people’s spirits with my humour in these difficult times we live in.”

2. What’s your biggest fear / something that holds you back?

I think the fear of failure holds me back a lot. Sometimes I could lose out on opportunities because I fear I will not be able to deliver as best I should. Thinking about my age and where I would’ve liked to be by now. Those kinds of thoughts sometimes make me anxious and doubt myself.”

3. What’s your biggest contribution / Something you like to share?

“Recently, I believe my biggest contribution to society is to alleviate the seriousness of the situations we face as a country. Laughter helps us cope with our problems or at least makes them a bit more bearable. I receive messages everyday from people thanking me for getting them through something difficult, such as the covid pandemic. Being a female deejay in a predominantly male dominated industry is important to show young girls that it can be done. And finally, I think that it’s crucial that we speak up as a nation against leaders who are failing us. Most people feel frustrated about our countries woes but are oftentimes afraid to talk about it. I have somehow become “the voice of the people.”

4. Fun Facts:

“When I was younger, I was deathly afraid of Freddy Kruger (with the long knife fingers) and one day I drew a picture of him on a piece of paper. I’m not sure why I did this, but I then ate the piece of paper and swallowed it. My sisters then told me Freddy Kruger would grow from inside my stomach and I was very traumatized. Thinking about it now I laugh myself in stitches but back then I cried so much to have him removed from my stomach.”

Thank you for being you!
