It seems all DJ Cleo wants for Christmas is, well, nothing much really.  While most people spend the festive season stressing about what gifts to buy, what to make for lunch and how to avoid mall traffic, the award winning DJ and producer is very chilled about the silly season.

In fact, after a thorough grilling we’re still not sure whether he’s excited about all the festive cheer. Maybe he’s just too busy slaying the competition. 

What are you doing for Christmas this year?

I'll be at home making sure that my kids enjoy my daughter's birthday

What would you buy us as a cool present?

My new disc

What would you like to find in your Christmas stocking?

Nothing, I have it already

What's your favourite Christmas memory?

For black people it is usually about "Christmas clothes", so I remember how my father would buy me clothes and shoes in my absence though I was 12 years old.

What's your favourite festive song or carol?

It came upon a midnight clear

What's the best or worst Christmas joke you've ever heard?


Christmas lunch or braai?


In a Christmas fantasy land - who would be the famous figures, past and present, at your dinner table and why?

A bit far-fetched question. I'm black.

Who would you like to grab under the mistletoe?

I have her already.

What would your perfect Christmas look like and would there be snow?

Like today, no snow. Hot day with good food.

Who do you think will be Number One in the Christmas chart?

Not too sure

Favourite Christmas film?

Nothing comes to mind

Spotting and recording a young talented boy eight months ago who would go on to win Idols 2013 (Musa Sukwene) and the song is featuring on my current album ESKHALENI 9

Any New Year's resolutions?

No, I've resolved already and I’m chasing that dream

What is 2014 going to look like for you?

Better than this space
