DJ M.A.F.I.A - a class act foe shizzle

With a name like "M.A.F.I.A," - one would think you would find this DJ playing in the heart of Lygon St. However, DJ Mafia is one of the most prominent RnB/Hip Hop DJ's not only in the LGBT scene, but the entire Melbourne community.

Mafia has supported stellar Hip Hop acts, recently including De La Soul.

But little do we know that Mafia accidently stumbled across her name and is not indicitive or her gender, culture and defies any connotations. Her real name was misread by a police officer and since then, she has been known as Mafia. Talk about a story for the grandkids.

A former VCA student, Mafia's passion started out in the performing arts but eventually grew a love for music to where she landed her current music playing gig and is a honcho for Sneaker Freaker.

She chats to Ginni from The Hump Day Crew - during Club Thumpin' - a RnB/Hip Hop during Joy FM's Friday Night Frequency.
