DBN Gogo bio: age, real name, parents, songs, controversies and more

DBN Gogo bio: age, real name, parents, songs, controversies and more

One of the most guarded secrets in Mzansi has come out, and South Africans are surprised. It has emerged that DBN Gogo, the upcoming house music DJ, has carved out a name for herself without using any of her powerful family connections. She has built an empire all by herself.

DJ DBN Gogo is one of Mzansi's leading ladies in the amapiano genre and she's flying the SA flag high after her impressive performance at the UK-based festival AMA Fest 2021.

Joining Spotify's Equal Music Program also led her to gracing the Spotify billboard in Times Square, New York, something she's super-proud of.

Early Life

DBN Gogo was originally born in Durban, but grew up with her parents, Jeff and Bridgette in Pretoria. She also spent 4 years living with them in France. She has stated that living in France exposed her to a large variety of music and artistes. She lived most of her life in Pretoria, and has stated that it is where people majorly know her from.

Other languages

She is very fluent in French owing to the time spent in France. She is also a Law student, and a massive fan of SA Hip Hop. DBN Gogo has stated that she loves travelling.


While DBN Gogo is yet to reveal her birthdate to the public, a lot of media sites have described her as “relatively young”. (We will share it when her exact age is revealed.)


She’s only been deejaying for a few years and is a relative newcomer to the business. It’s something she’s wanted to do for a long time, according to her. She’s also described herself as “a really musical person” who used to “play the piano, sing, and dance.” She said that the only thing she didn’t do was DJ, but that “it sort of found me.”

Real name

DBN Gogo real name is actually Mandisa Radebe. She is the daughter of the former Minister of Energy, Jeff Radebe, who happens to be the brother in law of Cyril Ramaphosa and Patrice Motsepe. Jeff Radebe's sisters were married by the President and Patrice.


DBN Gogo parents are Jeff Radebe and the businesswoman Bridgette Motsepe. Mandisa Radebe grew up with her parents in Pretoria and spent four years living with them in France, where she was exposed to a wide variety of music and artists.

Songs and music

She graces our ears with songs like Amapiano Mix and Old School House Music. Mayonice is my personal favourite, and this track features amazing artists like Jobe London, Makhanj, and the LowKeys. An Ode To Pitori is also an excellent track, and it has some jazz undertones. She has an impressive YouTube channel with 15K+ subscribers and more than 1 million views at the time of writing this article.


In a chat with TshisaLIVE, the hitmaker and co-creator of the #DakiweChallenge laid down her truth on the matter, slamming all assumptions that she got some advantage because of her parents. “I started from the bottom and what my family represents due to their occupation has had no impact on my career."

Net Worth

She has an estimated net worth of $1 million which she has earned as a DJ and Producer.
