Here's a look at how DJ Castro rose to fame. 

DJ Castro Early Life

DJ Castro was born Uakengeza Ngoinue in Windhoek and raised at Otjiwarongo. 

Sadly, the DJ lost his grandfather  and it seems the two were quite close .

In a Twitter post, Castro described his grandfather as the coolest grandfather and said losing him has been very hard. The DJ did not reveal when his grandfather died, but he said he hadn't been himself since he passed on. Castro said he had become too emotional and extra sensitive.

DJ Castro Relationship

DJ Castro was in a long term relationship with social media influencer Sendry. The power couple was previously Namibia's most loved couple in the industry. However, DJ Castro took to social media earlier this year to confirm that they have since broken up following rumors about Sendry's pregnancy. He is now focusing on himself and his career. He then went ahead to cover the matching tattoo he had gotten with his ex and posted that he'd done so on Instagram stories.

DJ Castro Career

In 2019, DJ Castro launch
ed his album Evolution.

In an interview with The Namibian, his manager Fernando Carlos, had this to say about the album;

"The album is very different from what DJ Castro normally does. The DJ is usually known for house music, but this time around went out of his comfort zone."

It took three years for the DJ to finally release the album and he had this to say about what transpired during those years,

โ€œI have been through so much. Also during these years I have learnt a lot about the music industry that has made me wiser. At first my material was stolen and I also struggled to get enough funds together. I have learnt not to trust anyone and also not to allow anyone to listen to my work. This is how my work went missing. It was stolen. I will never ever tell someone where my work is and I will always keep back-ups,โ€

The album features artists such as Sunny Boy, Lioness, Sally, Jermain Casper and Etjo.

The DJ also released a single featuring Don Makati with Ynot Records and many were jamming to it. DJ Castro and Don Kamati teamed up to work on the track 'Pretty Young Thing' (PYT). DJ Castro said the song was based on his personal about a girl that he once dated when he was in high school.
