Male Artists: SHOXY-SHAUN -Name: Shaun Silindile -Surname: NHLAPO -Age: 22 -Position: DJ & event coordinator SHOXY-SHAUN is a Guy who was born at Sebokeng zone 6, ext 1, where-by at a later stage relocated to Evaton west in 2003 and then started school at MATIWANE COMBINED SCHOOL at Orange farm Ext 7b from 2004 to 2010, And then graduated to POELANO SECONDARY SCHOOL at Evaton west from 2011 - 2015, whereby I graduated to ROSTEC FET COLLEGE and studied policing. I started this musical journey as a rapper when I was doing grade 5 and then got introduced to deejaying by my Friend Neo Using Automix, but I never took it so serious because I never had the tools at home with me, to practice, and then when I was doing grade 7, Virtual DJ was introduced where-by I also learned basics from my Cousin, but some situation whereby I struggled because I had no laptop or computer to play if most of the time, until I approached one of the prominent guys from my hood DJ BOB,
who turned down my request for classes of deejaying using a CDJ, but I never gave up until I met DJ Vigo ,who gave up his time just to teach me deejaying every Thursday when I was doing grade 10, he was using his sound system, at that stage we were still on the TRACKTOR 4 and a controller, more like a CDJ, whereby our relationship didn't last long because he relocated to a place that I couldn't go every day, and kept on the basics until VIRTUAL 8 was introduced. Now that's where-by I met DJ Africa, whom always gave me music to practice with and also got support from my sister, she borrowed me her laptop, Always wanted updates about gigs, became a resident DJ at tavern around my hood, always went to Sunday sessions around, that's where by I got the strong bond with music, and then on 2017 my sister launched a pub in POORTJIE, where I took this music journey to the next level, as I became a resident DJ ,and also got challenge from DJ's that side almost every weekend, and that trained me Further and also Got my name out there,

Raised by a single mother, he later went on to attend Barolong High School in Mafikeng where he started seeing his interest in the hip-hop life and started joining arts and musical movements around his hometown, started rapping due to his introduction to hip-hop through albums by HHP, Molemi and Morafe and for the fact that he was never good at any sports, so started rapping to fit in socially, his first experience of rapping was through a rap cypher at a local hip-hop party in Maftown in 2010 when he was 18 years old. At that cypher, Vandal Sunset says: "I demised and buried a useless and materialistic wanker and a fight broke out so (he) bailed out".
