Platinum-Selling Hit-Maker DJ Manzo SA, Showcases Musical Mastery With New Album ‘AMA45’

Renowned platinum-selling DJ and music virtuoso, Emmanuel Thetsane, professionally known as DJ Manzo SA, has emerged as a powerhouse in the global music scene, captivating audiences with the release of his brand new album titled ‘AMA45’. With innovative sounds and a relentless pursuit of musical excellence, the Soweto-born deejay released the lead single titled ‘Family First’ early last month which speaks to the importance of family values.

“I love music and it’s my greatest passion. Having produced hit songs such as ‘Isibani’ by DJ Hlo and ‘Senzeni’ by Mthandazo Gatya in recent years, I thought of doing something of my own that people would enjoy. The 10-track album is a fusion of  House Music, Mid Tempo and influence of Amapiano elements – it’s my gift to my fans” says DJ Manzo SA.
