With many years in the entertainment industry having worked in radio, television, MC-ing, stand-up comedy, events, record company and a prolific live DJing stint, Bexta has honed his abilities to capture a crowd with either his musical selection and mixing skills or his personality.

He has a private client list that includes Cyril Ramaphosa and the former president of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki - as well as corporate clients like MTN XPloaded and NBC.
After five years at UCT Radio as a presenter, producer, programming manager, music compiler, party planner and go-to guy for campus events, the city of gold was calling.

He has had regular DJing bookings at venues like News Café in Northriding and Sandton as well as Capellos in Parktown. He focused on corporate and private parties and has racked up an impressive client list.
His strength is his ability to interpret corporate briefs and tailoring his music selection and DJing for the specific client and event.
