After being retrenched from his job in 2007 in Durban, Francistowner; Duncan Mmeshe, 33, knocked on every door in the Zulu Capital looking for employment.
The talented Disc Jockey ended at one of Durban’s most popular entertainment centers, Eyadini Lounge where he asked to perform a set and the rest, as they say, is history.
DJ Duece has been Eyadini’s resident DJ for the last 11 years and has rubbed shoulders with the who’s who of the South African entertainment industry.

They agreed to give me a trial run.
I grabbed the moment with both hands and impressed the owner of the place, who immediately offered me a full-time job.
