Being a DJ is not a new dream for Mafole. Three years ago, the actress shared her plan to transition from acting to being a DJ.

Speaking to Thembi Seete on Massive Metro, Mafole said she will always love TV but planned to eventually go the DJ route because she always had a passion for music.
“I am going to be on Rhythm City for some time and I want to start producing my own short films and go into films more. I am also learning to DJ. I love music. I like to create amateur music.”
Mafole said she had been practising for six months and created songs on Garageband, but was hesitant to release some of the things she has recorded so far.
“I am so nervous to do it but I know it is like storytelling. You just immerse yourself in it. Music is like acting. You are sharing something with people and you are affecting people. You are making them feel a certain time. My sister is married to DJ Christos, so I have always been surrounded by music.”
Mzansi celebs Lerato Kganyago and Thuli Phongolo made the transition from TV presenting and acting respectively to the decks.
