My Name is Ighsaan Osman i grew up in Isipingo Beach. I was brought up by my mum. My Love 4 music began when i was in school i was always the one that use to bring the walk-man plus speakers to class. I was the one that use to do the sound for school sports and matinees at school. That is when people around my neighborhood were getting use to me being the DJ.The name Menace came about when my teacher use to always say and i quote "You Are A MENACE Get out of my class" now that was almost everyday because ill be honest i was a pain in school
Anyway after school is when my career started when i use to run a bar;a club and a take away; the name was "INTRIGUE" in Dakota Beach. During the weekend was when i use to be a DJ in the club. I was then called to play at a venue named "Pharaohs" in Amanzimtoti. I was a resident DJ there for 2 years. It was then i was asked to play at a venue named "Skyybar". A very upmarket venue. That is were the crowd use to love my music and from there i went on to play in Umlazi at a venue called "Max lifestyle" a very popular venue in the township. This is were my name was made and people started to get to know me better plus started following me on social media. I get many outside bookings from there huge venues such as :
- Nuz Vegas Lounge
- Vacca Matta
- Dela Sol
Just to name a few.. I get booked by the Government as well Durban Tourism and other Institutions.
My name blew up big time in 2013 wen i took part for the Viceroy makoya mix where i eliminated around 200 DJS in the heats to make it to the final were i represented KZN .In the final i came 2nd but i was so proud of myself for my achievement. I attempted the Red square DJ Knockout for 3 years in a row i made the finals but was placed 2nd again.
To some it all up i have featured in many huge events and that would not be possible if it was not for one man his name is Tzozo Zulu down to earth guy that has believed in me from the day we met at king Zweletini stadium in 2010. I have shared the stage with many big names such as:
- Black Coffee
Just to name a few.
I am very passionate in what i do i love the crowds response. I will always remain different and i will always find ways of reinventing myself as a DJ and entertainer. My new aim now is to make my son proud of his dad and leave behind a legacy.
My Message to you is
PUT GOD FIRST AND EVERYTHING WILL FALL INTO PLACE
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS &
LET NO ONE PUT YOU DOWN
