Dj Zinhle is one of the very first female DJs in South Africa, and has been voted best female Dj many times than expected. Seeing the female Djs dominate the industry is satisfying for her, not to mention that she also had a school were she teaches DJs and out of that came quite a few female DJs that are successful.
So when people try to bring down dominance, effort and great work, she did not take it lightly and had to share her thoughts.
A tweep by the 'Umalambane', posted a tweet saying " Being a female Dj these days only requires look and some sexy dance moves. Nobody cares about your mixing", a tweep said.
Dj Zinhle had to clap back and said, " So sad that you chose to reduce the growth of the female DJ industry to this. I definitely don't agree with you, I'm actually loving how girls are making it their own and dominating. Surely there's something to celebrate here", she said.
However, that doesn't close the fact that people still think that beauty outweighs the talent when it comes to women, and also the ability to dance and entertain without the skills of spinning the decks. A fan went in to defend the tweep and said, " He was not reducing talent, you know deep down that beauty privilege exists, you are a talented DJ Zinhle, but they are some overnight sensations that are only popular because of their good looks. Let's not lie to ourselves, beauty privilege exists", a fan said.
Well I think i have to agree with this one, as long as women are involved there's always going to be beauty privileges one way or another. Let me know what you think in the comments section, is there such thing as beauty privilege?, or me and the tweeps are just being haters.
