Lulo Café: South Africa's Premier DJ and Music Maestro

In the heart of South Africa's vibrant music scene stands a remarkable talent known by many as Lulo Cafe. He's not just a DJ; he's a musical sensation making waves throughout the nation. Lulo Cafe's journey through the world of music is a fascinating tale of passion, perseverance, and profound impact.

Lulo Cafe, whose real name is Sikhululo Maliwa, was born in Tsolo, Eastern Cape, South Africa. While he hails from Tsolo, he spent his formative years growing up in Sasolburg, Free State. His journey into music took a different path from traditional education. He pursued Hospitality Management at the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein but eventually decided to drop out in 2003. His heart wasn't in it, and he was destined for something greater.

In 2003, Lulo Cafe embarked on a life-changing adventure. He accepted the challenge of learning how to mix for a live set on a Bloemfontein radio station, a daunting task given only two weeks to master it. However, this pivotal moment became the catalyst for his music career. He emerged from this experience not just as a DJ but as a storyteller behind the decks, weaving narratives through his mixes that resonated with audiences.

Lulo's passion for his craft drove him to perfect his skills, even after becoming a professional DJ. His dedication paid off, leading to numerous high-profile gigs at prestigious venues and collaborations with notable South African celebrities. Lulo Cafe is renowned for his ability to connect with his audience, share stories and create a memorable experience on the dance floor.

Over the years, Lulo Cafe has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, known for cutting-edge and quality music. He received the prestigious Metro FM award for Best Compilation and earned nominations in the SAMA 18 Record of the Year category. His discography includes two outstanding albums, "Deep House Chronicles 2" and "What About Soul?" released under Soul Candi.
