Over the years, Nestlé has brought people from all walks of life together, and the Nestlé Aero “Moments to Melt into” campaign has all eyes on Ayanda MVP, who took a moment to spread lightness to a young, blind DJ with a big dream.
Amidst the current climate, entertainers and artists are amongst some of the professions that have been hit the hardest, and despite the personal difficulties that she has faced during this time; Phindile Ayanda Mduli, known to South Africans as Ayanda MVP, was determined to share a message of positivity, and shine a light on how the world could be a better place if we spent more time on pursuing positivity in every moment. She is testament to what becomes possible when we look a little harder at the brighter and lighter side of life.

I had the pleasure of meeting a young man who loves to DJ and never let his disability of eyesight stop his go! Eezo finally gets to meet a presenter from 947 and it was such a blessing to meet him! Thanks to #AeroSouthAfrica for making this possible. #aeromomentstomeltinto #aerofeelgoodfridays
With music as her passion, Ayanda MVP chooses to empower those who want to make a break into the entertainment industry; as she has had to break down stereotypes and prove herself on the airwaves and in the club scene as a DJ. Having struggled to have her talent recognised, she is a Media Personality who believes in giving South Africans a voice; and is invested in making a difference for the future; which is just what someone like Eldorado Park’s DJ Ezzo needed.
Having lost his eyesight at the age of two, after witnessing his father’s tragic death; Ezzo is starting to see his dreams come to light, thanks to an incredible act of kindness by Ayanda MVP. With music as both his haven and his escape, despite his handicap, he has always had a fervent love and passion for the medium, and has dreamed of sharing international stages with the likes of Black Coffee. Even though the odds were not in his favour, he has pursued his passion with determination and dedication, and looks up to some of South Africa’s most successful DJs, including his idol - Ayanda MVP.

Using the power of social media, Ezzo was able to reach out to the DJ network, and meet his idol, and the woman behind the decks. What Ezzo discovered is that while Ayanda MVP shares his passion for music, her positive and infectious energy, coupled with her sense of giving back to the community, makes her real and relatable, and she is someone who has made an indelible mark on the young DJ, renewing his sense of hope for a future in the industry. Ayanda MVP has made it possible for DJ Ezzo to finally be able to realise a lifelong dream of showcasing his skills on the decks, alongside her on 947, a melting moment that he is likely to never forget.
Ayanda MVP is living proof that life is what you make of it, and testament to pursuing your passion, no matter what it may be. DJ Ezzo has a newfound fervor for fine tuning his skills, rooted in rising above life’s many challenges, and for this young talent, the possibilities in the industry are infinite.
It has been music that has made some of Ayanda MVP’s greatest memories, including the opportunity to connect with DJ Ezzo; who has used music to carry him through some of his darkest days. Their collective journeys are testament to the musical magic that can unfold, when we choose a lighter, more positive perspective, and lift our days with moments of lightness, despite the darkness and hardship.
Ayanda MVP’s story has inspired so many South Africans, young and old, who have dreams that they’re dreaming. No matter what the world is going through right now, or how impossible or improbable your dream may seem, take it from Ayanda MVP and DJ Ezzo; all it takes is a simple act of kindness to rewrite your destiny and manifest a Nestlé Aero “Moment to Melt into.”
