Many things are scarce in Africa, talent is not one of them.
Africans – young or old is blessed with so much talent and often excel in whatever field they find themselves if they show dedication, are given a chance to build capacity and provided an opportunity to express their talents.
Arch Junior, a six-year-old South African disk jockey who currently stands to be challenged as the youngest DJ in the world has proven to the world that the mineral resources in Africa are nothing compared to the talent evident in the continent. DJ Arch is the Guinness World Record holder for the youngest DJ, claiming the record when he was 5 years and 38 days old.
He made his claims when he wowed judges and viewers from all over the world of popular American Television show, America’s Got Talent (AGT) during his performers that got the audience on their feet.
Arch Junior is not new to standing ovations or talent shows because, at six, he has got more experience in the game than many top DJs in the world today.
He won the South African edition of America’s Got Talent called South Africa’s Got Talent two years ago when he was only 4 years of age.
For someone who was judged to be the most talented person in South Africa, a country of 57,768,888 (as of Monday, January 21, 2019, based on the latest United Nations estimates) at age four; indeed, Arch Junior is a talented kid.
Simon Phillip Cowell, the executive producer and one of the judges of America’s Got Talent, who is also a strong critic of talent and famous for signing artists/bands like One Direction, Westlife, Little Mix, Leona Lewis, and many other superstars was full of praise for Arch Junior and even promised to work with him.
“You and I need to be talking after this sure because I got some plans for you after this show, trust me.
“You’re six-year-old, you flew all the way from South Africa to take on the best. It’s all down to the fifty states now, what a way to start the show,” he said.
