He won the SADMC Championships four times and also won the DJ of the Decade award. He competed twice in the world DJ championships and finished in the top ten both times. Various publications rate him amongst the top 30 hip hop DJs in the world.

Apart from performing in clubs, Ready D took the art of hip hop DJing into many areas where it was unknown, including big music events around South Africa such as the Ice Festival, Synergy, Camel Experience, Oppikoppi and the KKNK Festival (a week-long tour into rural and underprivileged areas where most of the community do not have electricity), Woodstock Festival, Alex Groll International Inline Skating Championships, Redbull Downhill Extreme Champs, Grahamstown Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival and various trade and expo shows.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
