Tebogo Mekgwe, better known as Pinky Girl, recently launched the Pinky Couch Sessions with the vision to give women who DJ a platform to showcase their skills.
Being a DJ herself, Pinky Girl understands how hard it can be to succeed in the industry. This is one of the reasons that inspired her to launch The Pinky Couch sessions and give upcoming female DJs the space to flourish and showcase their talent. The first Pinky Couch Session took place at Tammy Taylor, Menlyn Maine on the 9th of August where three upcoming DJs, Nkamogeleng Modise, Bokamoso Ndhlovu and Kedibone Mohlala, were chosen to have a nail date with Pinky Girl and play a live set.
“It was so fulfilling to see the ladies get excited about being part of the Pinky Girl Sessions. They loved their nails and gave it their all when it came to their live sets,” shared Pinky Girl.
Upcoming DJ Bokamoso Ndhlovu shared that the Pinki Couch Sessions are a perfect example of women empowerment and creating an empowering space for women.
“It was truly an honour to be a part of the Pinky Couch Sessions as this gave me the opportunity to be around other women who are on the same career path as me. It also helped me grow my network, meet other upcoming female DJs as well as learn from them and their experiences which gave me the push that I need to continue going forward as a female DJ. This was,” says Ndhlovu.
The Pinky Couch Sessions will happen every month at different venues where different upcoming female DJs will be chosen to become a part of this experience.
