As the world celebrated Mother’s Day, one of South Africa’s leading musicians, DJ Davic, openly expressed his undying love for his departed mother.

Ace producer and record company owner DJ Davic had planned a special birthday for his mother, Ms Maria Nkhathutsheleni Nemungadi Mikosi, that was set for January 2024. To celebrate her, he had even composed a song, “Mme Anga,” in her honour. But as fate would have it, his mother fell ill and passed away sadly in October 2023.

The producer, who is from Maniini outside Thohoyandou but resides in Tshiawelo, Soweto, had to put everything on hold. DJ Davic is regarded as the father of Venrap music, with 35 singles and an EP under his belt. He finally released the song “Mme Anga” (My Mother) as part of his second EP, titled “Love Money Fame”.

The new six-track EP was released in February and was recorded and produced by himself at his own studio, Masana Records, in Tshiawelo. On this track, he collaborated with two top musicians, Rofhiwa Nethwadzi and Siyabonga Vilanculo.

About the hit “Mme Anga,” DJ Davic said he was indebted to his mother. “Mothers are a priceless gift from God. She was so dear to me, and she was a pillar behind my success in music. She always encouraged me to work hard in order to succeed in life, and I am what I am today because of her. I will always love and cherish her. I penned the song ‘Mme Anga’ while she was sick and hoped she would heal before her birthday, but she sadly passed away before her birthday. I released it after her death to give courage to those who still have mothers to celebrate them while they are still alive. The time will come when they will leave us. As we celebrate mothers, I urge you all to love your mothers while they are still alive,” he said.

Davic got involved in the House music scene in 1998 and in 2002 he started playing at small parties. He started the Masana Record empire in 2004 and has produced popular artists, among them Mizophyll, Killer G, Jininka, and Kadaf. His new EP is available in all online digital stores.
