We asked Dj Tira what’s his secret to success?
“I think first and foremost you have to be in favor with the Lord Jesus. If you don’t Pray then your life will rotate in circles because as human beings we need guidance from the creator. Plus you must do what you love and don’t expect things to happen overnight, everything takes time and hard work. It took me many years to get where I am because I’m doing my own thing at my own pace and I’m not competing with anyone. So yeah, just follow your passion and NEVER GIVE UP.”
Dj Tira refused to disclose how much he is Worth and simply said, “buy your tickets to the Afro Marquee and Fact Durban Rocks, I might reveal how much I’m worth hahaha.”
Thank you Dj Tira for giving us your time and we wish you and Afrotainment all the best this July and beyond.
