Oscar Bonginkosi Mdlongwa born on 23 November 1967, also affectionately known by his stage names Oskido, Oscar Warona, Godzilla or The Big O. After spending the first two years of his life with his South African mom (Emily Sophia Molefi), he moved to Bulawayo to stay with his Zimbabwean dad (Esaph Mdlongwa). He graduated at Gifford High School, Bulawayo and moved back to Letlhabile, Brits in 1988.Oskido

After leaving Zimbabwe to seeker greener pastures in South Africa, Oskido started out selling boerewors rolls from a stall outside Club Razzmatazz in Hillbrow. It was the early nineties, and late at night Oskido would sneak in to the club to jam to fresh house tracks. He became fascinated with dj-ing and occasionally took over while the DJ had a break. One night, Razzmatazzs resident didn’t pitch and he was asked to stand in. He hasn’t looked back since.

The early 90’s found Oskido selling boerewors sausage rolls outside the Razzmatazz nightclub in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, sneaking his way inside the club to spin the closing sessions and slowing down American house tracks to a tempo that “Africans could dance to”. One night, the resident DJ didn’t pitch up… and the rest is history.DJ-Oskido perfoming his latest song Tsa Madebele

Later teaming up with fellow producers Don Laka and Christos Katsaitis, they founded Kalawa Records and released their eponymous self-entitled BOP (Brothers of Peace) compilation in 1993. Establishing a network of DJs, musicians, producers and other hopefuls, the label turned into Kalawa Jazmee in 1995 after Mr. Katsaitis’ departure.
