Stu Machinya, better known as Stunna, is a multi-faceted club and event DJ.

She went on to grow her network and landed gigs at Cato, in Singapore, where she lived and modelled for a year in 2016.
As well as walking the runway at KL fashion week, her DJ skills got her a gig at the official after party of the highly acclaimed event. She did nothing but impress and was asked to play at the Formula 1 after party where she was featured in the 2016 Martini International Campaign for the F1.
Stunna has experience in the club and entertainment industry in Cape Town, as she was previously the manager of Souk, on long street before doing a professional DJing course at Cape Audio College in Observatory.
She transitioned from managing to becoming a resident DJ at Souk as well as it’s sister club, COCO on Loop street.
With a passion for various genres of music, Stunna loves mixing her favourite deep and local house, R&B, Hip Hop or Afrobeats.
