One of the most sought-after live mix DJs in the country at the moment, Bass-queen DJ Doowap is Khetsiwe Morgan; a British-South African Academy of Sound Engineering graduate, stylist, hair artist and live mix DJ dabbling in Hip Hop, Trap, Grime and Gqom. Post relocating to South Africa in 2012 after studying sound engineering abroad for four years, her love for bass-driven music emerged while spending time in the underground music scene, clubs, and various music studios.

An interest in TV presenting saw her host a show called TasteMaker Series on national channel SABC 1, style reporting for Superbalist and hosting a radio show called Basspiration on R1WRadio which followed her hit shows on YFM and Berlin Community Radio.

Thereafter, with a focus on live mixing, she has taken her ear for great music across borders at numerous events such as AFROPUNK Johannesburg, Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, Global Citizen Next 100 and playing alongside dancefloor denizens Siobhan Bell and M.I.A. She has also worked with and continues to have seeding relationships with corporate brands such as Nike, Oakley, Woolworths SA, SA Tourism UK, G-STAR RAW, Red Bull, Flying Fish, MTN and E! Entertainment.

Her vision to carry on inspiring on a global standard is well intentioned and well-executed; Doowap is an experienced fitness enthusiast and brings as much hard work and dedication to her on-stage performances, featuring up-to-the-minute dance routines and killer costumes. Doowap will spend mid-March in Cape Town working with a different flow -- this time for "The Journey Of Water" with WWF (World Wildlife Fund) to document and participate in an excursion that demonstrates the journey of water from it's main source to our taps. By month-end she’ll have an Oakley advert aired, as well as an E! Entertainment campaign and Shekinah's self-made RoseFest to prepare for in time for August. This, however, is just the start…
