After having to move with his parents to a leafy suburbia of Durban North called Umhlanga Ridge, a coastal area that overlooks the Indian Ocean where he is currently based with his family. Since childhood, King XL has always been a child whose heart beats nothing but the music, realized at a tender age of 15 that he was ‘bitten by a DJ/Producer Bug’, King XL grew up wanting to be an extraordinary Brand and always had this vision of himself being a King, amongst other Kings in the music industry as he believed in his ability of making people laugh and dance.

He drew aspiration from the living international legend DJ Black Coffee whom he really admires and looks up to, hopes one day to achieve the same level of popularity and business success by producing State of The Art music for the mases around the globe. He dreams of collaborating with Dj
Black Coffee as he admires his work ethics as well as the execution of his live mixes during his set globally and most importantly the way he prioritize his family time after his hectic diary.
What sets King XL from the other DJ’s is that he is only 20 years old but has worked with some of the industries’ biggest giants, Danger from the band Big Nuz as well as L’vovo Derrango. King XL is a God-fearing DJ, highly humbled, his forte is to mix and also creating beats in his spare time. King XL learned to dj and mix when he was doing grade 8 assisted by some of the DJs in his hometown to harness his skills. While it started out as a hobby, it quickly turned into a passion for him and it consumed most of his time which presently, it’s a career to him which made him a Brand he is.
To King XL, music is life and he believes by producing and mixing music for people, the world would be a happier place. It gives him great joy seeing people enjoying and having a good time, that what made him want to venture into music.

This is the first of many projects King XL has produced and he is adamant that he will win as many South Africans as possible not by Mind, by Choice but by the Holly Spirit.
