Sliqe, born Lutendo Kungoane, is a DJ, producer and radio personality of Venda descent who grew up in the south of Johannesburg. He was an A student in both primary and high school and by the 10th grade, had established himself as the DJ for his school’s social events.

As a student at the University of Johannesburg, he became the resident DJ at the hottest clubs in the region such as Club Sway in Sandton and Stones in Melville, to name a few. Sliqe found his niche in infusing the stylised rhythmic sounds of hip hop with Kwaito music – a genre that emerged in Johannesburg during the 90s.
