At a young age, at the age of 16, when she was in grade 11, the young artist started to find her own identity in the world. 

She is even stepping out of her parents’ shadow even without noticing.

As a DJ, Owami is a resident DJ on YoTV. She makes an appearance on the weekly Friday mainly for youth.

Outside YoTV, she is improving her DJ skills. Her elder brother, A.J Mafokate taught her on an occasional basis.

The young DJ decided to chase after her DJ career but her parents, Arthur Mafokete and Sesoko are not too convinced about her being a singer.

“I have been singing since I was a kid but my parents don’t really want me to do it. They, however, support me by taking me for lessons,” she said.
