Without a doubt, he definitely deserves a spot among the best in the business. The Harare-born and bred 36-year-old had other aspirations growing up. Mox in an interview with The Sunday Mail said he would have been either a lawyer, an architect, pilot or a successful rap artiste.

“When I was still at school I actually wanted to be a lawyer or a pilot but then after finishing high school and when it was time to go to law school, I realised that I did not like reading that much so I decided to pursue something else,” he said.
“I ended up opting for an aviation course because being a pilot was one of my dream professions and still is up to this day. Although I ended up being on radio, I am still taking flying classes and I hope one day I will get my wings.”

“I fell in love with public speaking when I was about 15 years old so I joined the debate club at school. I actually won a few debate competitions and in 2003 I was the best speaker in the country after battling it out with other top public speakers.”

As a man gifted with his voice and ability to speak with clarity, it was only a matter of time before opportunities started knocking on his door and his first shot at fame came in the form of being a voice-over artist.

“In 2009, I was asked to do voice-overs for Kingdom Bank and after trying out for the first time, they immediately kept me as their corporate voice for about three years. While I was doing the voice-over gig, people started asking me to try out TV. That is when I joined ZBC in 2010 as a continuity presenter, mainly doing the programme line-up.”
“I heard about the Star FM auditions and after encouragement from my mom and most of my friends, I decided to go and give it a shot. I was not even sure I would make it because I had never done radio before so I was actually surprised when I was called and told that I got the job.”

DJ Mox gained a lot of experience while hosting the Midnight Lockdown, a time slot he held down of from 2012 to 2014 before finally being on the TXO.

“It was mid-2014 when I started doing TXO – The Cross Over, which is one of the most exciting shows on the radio, especially for the youths. Being a slot for the young and vibrant, I have to make sure that I always keep the energy levels on a high.”

The radio DJ became involved in a beef with Kikkybadass a few years ago after the rapper said, "Fuck your airplay" as she left Dj Mox along with other radio hosts were intentionally sidelining her music. In 2017 he and his wife, unfortunately, lost their son in a drowning accident at home.

We hope the Moxinator gets better soon.
