DRUM recently caught up with Yfm DJ Sabelo Mtshali aka DJ Sabby to speak about fatherhood. He’s a new dad to a baby boy named Nkosingiphile Orifha aka Ori Mtshali.

He told us, “It may sound cliché, but my son is my new reason to hustle.” He added that before his son was born he simply, “hustled for material things”. Now he actually has a real reason to get up and go to work.

The DJ says he’s “learning everyday” from spending time with his little boy, and says “parenting is an amazing journey, and for me, the journey has just begun”.

When we spoke to Sabby about the day Orifha was born, he got so excited, saying, “When Orifha was born he cried then I cried too, it wasn’t tears of sadness, no not at all, it was tears of joy, tears of a G who’s son had just been born,” he said of the most amazing day of his life so far.

He explained the baby’s name too. Orifha “God-given” in Venda and to DJ Sabby his son is a “blessing” and a “true gift from God”.
