DotCom

Rapper, singer, dancer, actor and aspiring model DotCom was born on the 29th of May 1988 in the Eastern Cape city of East London. He is one of 4 children, him being the only boy. Having grown up in the township of Mdanstane, DotCom was constantly surrounded by the then booming sounds of Kwaito music and 90’s Hip-Hop. From a young age he had a passion for music, even joining his primary school choir.

With both his parents being high school and church conductors, it was inevitable that he would fall in love with music. In 2001 his family took the giant leap of moving to the big city of Johannesburg for work reasons, this would only come as a blessing as it would expose him to all of the amazing sounds and cultures that he used to watch on T.V whilst growing up.

Even though he was deeply embedded in sports having gone to a prominent all boys school music and dance was his calling and this would become apparent when he started dancing for the then big Hip-Hop group “Jozi” immediately after high school. Drawing him even closer to the studio and the music recording environment.
