The young vibrant aspiring DJ, Kutlo Dinake (18) is popularly known by ‘KutloScope’. The artists dream gets ready to take off with a bang this year as she embraces the call of her talent and passion. The DJ is currently doing her twelfth grade at Delta Waters International School in Maun, in Botswana. She hails from a village called Kanye however she is currently residing in a village called Letlhakane.
She unraveled her journey in music late 2016 as she stood to take a step to greatness in provoking her deep arousing passion as she had her very first performance at the first annual Orapa Color Fest. Since she had the opportunity to take a leap of faith she has been making a name for herself and has made strong alliances with big league local DJ’s in Botswana such as DJ Big Pun and DJ Chabo.
“Music started as a hobby when I collected it. Especially house music which later evolved to becoming a passion,” she said. She further explains that everything changed when she downloaded Dj’ing software called Virual DJ and ever since she has had her heart sold.
With the immense practice she had, her love and appreciation for music and Dj’ing only made its way up in growing bigger. “Initially I wanted to pursue a career in Criminal Law but music really changed my life and gave me the urge to study and do music design technology,” she strongly said.
KutloScope is motivated by the support she gets from people she loves and the outer public. It is said that ‘every glory has a story’, as an artist she came across challenges specifically in Disc Jockying as it is a male dominated profession therefore she was underestimated as a female in the industry however in her case this was healthy competition as she made sure she breaks the barriers and misconceptions by doing her best.
This challenge inspired her to take part in women empowerment schemes, organisations and campaigns hence she came up with the ‘Lead Girl’ club at school which aims to encourage teenage girls who want to pursue a decent career in the entertainment industry.
She has recently released a mix called ‘KutloScope Deep Insider Maximum 002’. It is said in the future to expect a revived sound and collaborations with artists and producers both renowned and upcoming.
