Dlala Thukzin’s Magic Handz

Sizwe Sibiya

“Dlala Thukzin” is more than just an artist’s stage name – he is the person behind many Gqom hit songs with artists like Mampintsha, DJ Tira, and Babes Wodumo.

His name has turned it into a catchphrase in most clubs in the country. When people hear his offerings they know he is about to drive the crowd wild with his Djing skills. 

Thukzin’s full name is Thuthuka Zindlovu and he is from Lamontville south of Durban.

One of his latest offerings is the trending release Nika Nika in which he plays with Iso and CavaTheKwaal.

More than four years into the commercial scene,  he still receives the same reaction he received with one of his first hits ‘Nab Laba’ with Dladla Mshinqisi and Zulu Mkhathini.

“Magic Handz” as he prefers to be called instead of just a ‘Gqom producer’ started DJing with his uncle at the age of 12 around Durban. And from there he has grown into becoming the artist that everybody knows and appreciates.

He is determined to leave a lasting legacy. Traces of his skill are seen in one of the biggest Gqom albums in the country by the genre’s queen, Babes Wodumo, who also hails from Lamontville – titled Gqom Queen Volume 1 in 2016.

His album Permanent Music is here to stay with its single Nika Nika at over 700,000 views on YouTube.
