DJ Arch Jnr landed in China this week to compete at World’s Got Talent, the talent championships of all championships.
To put this into perspective, this is the equivalent of the football Champion’s League.
DJ Arch Jnr takes his talents to China
The six-year-old South African sensation, born Oratilwe Hlongwane, found instant fame on social media, three years ago, when his parents posted videos of him working the turntables at events.
At first, sceptics thought the videos were manipulated in some way. However, no amount of doubt was ever going to stop Arch’s shine — and boy is this young genius shining.
As reported by EWN, the six-year-old DJ posted images of himself, caped in South Africa’s flag, at the airport in China. This was his way of announcing that he would partake in the grand World’s Got Talent competition.
Arch’s biggest fan, Simon Cowell, was left stunned after he saw the kid’s capabilities at America’s Got Talent: The Champions in 2018.
What is World’s Got Talent all about?
This time around, he has been selected as one of 30 of the most talented in the world (within the context of the global Got Talent franchise) to participate in this new competition.
This 13-part series, according to Variety, is a partnership between Freemantle, Syco Entertainment and Hunan TV.
The young South African talent will probably be in Changsha, Hunan, already, sharpening his skills in preparation for the launch of the series, which is slated for an April release.
“This format has already entertained a global audience of almost a billion and we are delighted to have Hunan TV commission this exciting production with our Fremantle partners, which will showcase a variety of Chinese acts as well as the very best of our ‘Got Talent’ global family,” said Abi Doyle, vice president of international productions at Syco.
