DJ Jazzy Q Surprises Aspiring DJ Live On Jacaranda FM
Jacaranda FM and its Good Morning Angels initiative remains passionate about changing the lives of many people around the country. This week, the initiative joined forces with the Reach For A Dream foundation, an organisation making dreams come true for children fighting life-limiting and threatening diseases. One of these children is 15-year-old Lungile Mabasa.
Lungile had a tumour removed from his stomach and is being treated at the oncology unit of a Centurion Hospital. He lives with his mom, dad, and three younger siblings. Lungile says that he really enjoys soccer and music and his biggest dream is to become a music producer when he grows up like his idol Amapiano producer, DJ Jazzy Q.
The Reach For A Dream foundation contacted Jacaranda FM’s Good Morning Angels to help make Lungile’s dreams of being a producer come true. During an interview with Martin Bester live on Jacaranda FM, the radio DJ announced that the Good Morning Angels fund is gifting Lungile with a keyboard, laptop, mic, and other recording equipment to enable him to start working on his dream of being an Amapiano music producer.
In a surprise turn of events, Martin revealed that he has another surprise for Lungile before welcoming DJ Jazzy Q into the studio to meet his biggest fan. “It makes me feel great to see the impact my music has had on a young child like Lungile,” DJ Jazzy Q told Martin Bester on air. “I love that I am able to inspire others to become something and do better in whatever they want to achieve in life. It’s very overwhelming for me.”
Martin, a familiar musician himself, adds that giving a young child the ability to pursue their passion is one of the greatest gifts you can give. “I loved taking hands with the Reach For A Dream Foundation on this Good Morning Angels initiative. Just because a child faces a life-changing prognosis doesn’t mean they need to stop dreaming. In fact, the foundation makes thousands of kids’ dreams come true a year and every time we get to assist and get the angels together, it’s a very special privilege,”
Martin adds “This morning when Lungile, an aspiring Amapiano producer, mentioned that he is a massive fan of DJ Jazzy Q and pointed him out as an idol, I had this amazing feeling knowing that Jazzy Q was in the studio right behind him. When he walked in, the look on Lungile’s face was absolutely priceless. A big thank you to DJ Jazzy Q for helping make Lungile’s dream come true. It was a huge privilege to be a part of it and it’s something I will never forget.”
Finally, in celebration of Reach For A Dream’s upcoming Slipper Day on Friday 5 May, Martin shared that the Good Morning Angels fund and the Jacaranda FM community supporting the fund, will buy 1000 Reach for a Dream Slipper Day stickers – that’s R20 000 towards making more dreams come true for children fighting life-threatening diseases, like Lungile.
