You have seen him in Singapore's best super club, and you must have definitely heard his groove-inducing late night sets on 98.7FM. To many, he is known as DJ Ghetto, and those who knows him personally, calls him as Ah Heng. In today's UN:CUT, we speak to this DJ, that is probably one of the most fashionable one on our island.
Editor's note :
I have known Heng since the early 2000's, and over the past few years, I have seen how his hard work paid off to get to where he is now.
I know that he has turned down many past interviews with other media, and the only reason is really because he is camera shy, and prefer to let his music and style do the talking. Which is why I really appreciate him taking time to do this because, I feel that his story is truly inspiring, and I vaguely remember him working odd jobs, it was only through this interview that I knew one of the jobs he was doing was in a billiard mess! Those who know Ah Heng will know him to be a very real person. He doesn't talk much and does his stuff in an unassuming way.
Perhaps it's his quiet demeanor that gives off that arrogance, or that 'minding your own business' attitude that created the sense of nonchalance that haters love to hate.
The DJ Ghetto that you see now is the result of many years of hard work. From a billiard saloon 'manager' to a resident DJ of Singapore's best super club, he more than paid his dues.
A truly inspiring story that pretty much shows that with hard work and determination, anyone can chase their dream and make it come true. In the world of swimming, we have Joseph Schooling, in the world of DJs, we have DJ Ghetto.

Steady la, Ah Heng!
