The famous DJ, Ashley Raphala, famously known as DJ Shimza, has been making headlines recently for all the wrong reasons. The star who is used to shows that get sold out is making it big in the music scene and influencing many people. Like many celebrities in the industry, the musician does not rely only on music to make money. Did you know that DJ Shimza owns a trucking business?
Earlier this year, DJ Shimza took to Twitter to announce that he had started his own logistics company. He named the trucking business Lekganyo after his daughter. This is the fourth business venture that the DJ has embarked on. He has a company Shimuzic that handles his music and some shows; he also has his hand in hospitalism as he owns a restaurant.
After he started the trucking business, DJ Shimza was dragged on the internet. He was being accused of gaining his wealth through his girlfriend who was charged with awarding him tenders illegally. Last month the famous musician faced backlash from many fans as people took to social media to attack him for employing only foreign nationals in his business. He denied all these allegations.

These past weeks he was involved in a Twitter war with Amapiano DJ Maphorisa, who dragged him for not supporting other artists. Maphorisa claimed that Shimza, with his following and experience in the industry, has not given other upcoming performers a chance to show off their talent and market their art.
Before he gained fame DJ Shimza competed and won the Red Square DJ Competition. With that, he got himself a gig and a one-person show. His first album was in 2015 called Shimuzic. He has earned the chance to perform with the likes of International DJ Black Coffee.
