The first ever Global Spin Awards have been launched to honour the best DJs in the world, and alongside Grandmaster Ready D, another DJ has also been nominated. Indian female club DJ and rapper, Deshnie Govender AKA Roxxi will be jetting off to New York to represent SA. Question is – why we ain’t heard of her until now? Either way, Roxxi has been in the DJ-ing scene for five years, performing at events such as 5FM’s New Years Eve bash, NYE (G&G Balito in association with 5FM), Miller DBN July, Akon’s Convict Tour after-party and at Axe Jet’s Campaign to Ibiza.

I’m so honored to be nominated in the first running of these awards. This shows that my talents have been noticed beyond the borders of Africa”, says Roxxi.
