SA's youngest DJ (3) triumphs at ‘SA's Got Talent’
DJ Arch Junior was crowned the winner of 'SA's Got Talent' on Sunday.
JOHANNESBURG - The father of a three-year-old DJ from Alexandra says winning SA's Got Talent is only one of many milestones for his son.
Oratilwe Hlongwane, who is also known as DJ Arch Junior, won a R500,000 grand prize after competing against six other hopefuls at Sunday night's finale.
He was first discovered by social media users when his family started posting videos of the toddler showing off his his talent on a mixing deck in January.

Reacting to the win, his father Glen Hlongwane says he is proud of the little boy.
"We are very proud as a family. He surprised us since day one, since January, when 'broke the internet' so winning SA's Got Talent is the cherry on top."
Hlongwane says while the young DJ will be allowed to play at child-friendly events, they now have to focus on his education.
"The main factor was just for him to go there and express his talent. Only when he is mature enough to understand this then we will try and plan things. For now it's just education, we will just let him develop as a kid and make sure we are not taking anything away from his childhood."
