DJ Cleo serious about his soccer career

Posted: 3 March 2014 Time: 15:23

Award-winning music producer DJ Cleo is training with Bidvest Wits reserves and is hopeful of getting a first team contract.

The 34-year-old DJ, whose real name is Cleopas Monyepao, wants to emulate music legend Julio Iglesias, who played as a goalkeeper in the Spanish Second Division before his career was cut short by a car accident.

“I’m still training with the Wits reserves and I’m very serious about it,” Cleo tells “Football has always been my first love and I played for the Kaizer Chiefs Under-15s until I got injured. While I was healing my music career took off and since then I never looked back.

“You know, if it’s not broken you don’t fix it. But now I’m back and I’m very serious about it. I played few friendly matches last year with some out-of-contract professionals and we played against the likes SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits, and I enjoyed every minute of it.”

Cleo, who is a diehard Orlando Pirates fan, says he has no problem putting his music career on hold while focusing on football.

“Football is a profession and it should be treated as such,” Cleo adds. “If I get a fulltime contract then there will be no more public performances for me because that will mean I have to focus on football.

“Right now I’m taking a break from music and my focus is to get the right agent. Before I can sign with any team I need to get the right agent and then take from there.”

What music career is he putting on hold? because he sucks these days!!, He should stick to making lousy music and leave football to those who are serious about it...ridiculous how these attention seeking whores would go as far as taking a position for a potential up coming player just to boost their ratings.

At some point he was doing his PPL, now I wonder what happened to that. As a pilot, I thought we were going to be joined by one musical maestro in the cockpit at some point in my flying career.
