“I am the only DJ from the Free State to be specific,” prides DJ Mbulelo ‘ LeGoody’ Khataza on his inclusion in this year’s highly anticipated FillUpRoyalBafokeng concert set to take place on December 15.
LeGoody has enjoyed a lot of success over the years featuring strongly on both local and national events and his inclusion comes as no surprise.
Although fans are waiting with great anticipating for the full line-up, they are already delighted he will be part of this year’s fiesta, regarded as one of the biggest music festivals in the country since it’s inception in 2016.
LeGoody confirmed his booking on various social media platforms, saying: “Way back in 2017, I just skipped my manager and called TLee and begged him to put me on at FillupFnb but it was too late. I asked him to put me on at the Taboo After Party and told him I don’t want anything I just wanna come and rock. Man, I did that, got Cassper, Ricky Rick, Boity dancing next to me by the DJ booth. It was crazy! I thought they forgot about me but today I get this email saying I am part of the main event. Guys, patience is a virtue. Rome was not built in a day. I’m so excited. FillUpRoyalBafokeng I’m Coming!”
The post immediately drew congratulatory messages from fans, club managers and LeGoody’s, including Bushveld Selogile Mabale, a well-known deep house DJ often labelled as playing ‘expensive music’ who wrote, “Congratulations Buddy.”
Well-known comedian Piyet Live also congratulated the disc-jockey, saying: “This is the progress we want to see. Congratulations.”
Speaking to The Weekly, the soft spoken LeGoody said, “Playing at an event of this magnitude means that my hard work and efforts are being recognised. If a promoter can trust me with his crowd that is not from my own province it means I’m doing something right but beyond just me. It means promoters from outside the province are begging to take notice of talent in the Free State.”
He further noted, “While I am excited and can’t wait to get to Rustenburg and show the masses what Free State is all about, I am more excited about representing my province and doing it the best way I know how to, which is making people dance and dance hard.”
