We chat to hip hop maestro, DJ Sliqe

Hip hop producer, DJ Sliqe burst onto the scene with his smash hit “Do Like I do” featuring Kwesta and Flabba. The hypnotic beat and catchy hook made the song the perfect earworm and before we knew it, we were all singing “Do like I do, like I do. Hai suka man!”

Sliqe kept producing hit after hit and his first album Injayam vol. 1 which featured over 18 artists, has birthed numerous hits. Since then, he has become a household name in hip hop and has cemented his place in the industry with a dope jingle following in the footsteps of mega producers DJ Mustard and Mike Will.
