Tiisetso Sue Motaung, but well known in the entertainment industry as DJ Sue, is in the forefront of house music. Unlike other ordinary DJs, Sue is not just a deejay and producer but a vocalist who lends her voice to her own tracks.
She began her journey as a deejay in mid 2003, using her friend’s equipment, to show off her skills at birthday parties and braais in and around Johannesburg, South Africa.

In the same year she was a back track DJ for Hip Hop artist Jub Jub until September 2009.
Her musical journey keeps taking her to places as far as Pretoria, Swaziland, Lesotho, Mthatha, East London, Durban, Mpumalanga, Rustenburg, Mafikeng, Venda, Limpopo and as far as North of Africa in Algeria. She has been featured and interviewed on a variety of shows both radio and television namely, Oskido’s House Grooves show on YFM, Glen Lewis and Unathi’s drive time show on Metro FM, Vinny Da Vinci and Christos’ Urban Beat show with lady Zeal on Metro FM, Umhlobo Wenene FM, Channel O, SABC 1’s Jika ma Jika and the “Just Music Show” with Lerato Kganyago as well as the Nimrod Nkosi show on Soweto TV.
Sue is driven by her passion to unite all female DJs and musicians through what she has dubbed as “an unforgettable night life experience”. Having mastered the art of turntabalism, DJ Sue is also the brains behind The Night Life Experience as well as The Sound Evolution events. She has hosted these at Morris Pub, The Rock, Rockerfella and Disoufeng in Soweto, branching all the way to the Vaal.
As a vocalist she has worked with DJ Qness, Infinite Boys, Gigs Super Star, T-underground and V-underground from Soul Candi Music. DJ Sue is also the lead vocalist on the theme song of SABC 2’s comedy series titled "Garedumele". In 2009 till 2011, when she was not entertaining club hoppers around the country with her electrifying mixes, Sue shared her know-how as a DJ Lecturer as well as Assistant Lecturer for Music Production at the Soul Candi Institute imparting valuable knowledge to South Africa’s next generation of turntable gurus.
In May 2011 she clinched a radio show on internet radio station Rhythm100 radio.
“My goal is to break boundaries while continuing to work with other creative minds,” says DJ Sue.
DJ Sue is currently working on her debut house album and already it promises to be a big success as two of the singles from the yet-to-be-titled offering are currently being played on rotation on YFM.
