Could you let us know how your journey into showbiz started?

‎ Seriously, I never Knew I Would Be A DJ. I Got Inspired Through A Brother While At Secondary School. He Was A Good DJ. I Met Him To Do A Mixtape For Me Then. We Had Turn Table, You Remember Now. Then We Do Cassette. We Used To Call It Dubbed In Those Days. We Don’t Call It Record. He Dubbed The Cassette For Me. Where He Did Foreign Songs Mixed With Tony Tetula, Plantasun Boiz and Others Then. I Loved The Mix. I Later Called Him One Day That I We Love To Learn If He Can Train Me On How To Become A DJ? But Initially I Never Dreamt To Be A DJ. I Had Loved to Be An Artiste. I Love Singing A Lot Back Than. He Said There Was No Problem. But The Challenges I Had Then Was That He Likes Money While I Don't Have It To Offer. So For That We Only Meet At Every Festive Period And After That I Would Go To Train Myself. It Was Very Challenging. He Firstly Told Me To Go Listen To Music First. The More I Listened To Music The More I Have Passion. I Was Just Asking Myself, How We I Know How To Mix This Song, I Would Just Mix It. There Was That Curiosity, Anticipation, Determination To now More About The Profession. I Thank God Today That all Had Been A Good History For Me. No Doubt, I’m One Of The Best In My Game.

Tell us about your move to Lagos from Port harcourt and how you managed to hustle your way to where you are now?

Ye It Has Been A Journey, The Idea Of Me Moving To Lagos Came On the 17th Of February 2015 When I Was Unable To Meet Up To My Fees And Other School Financial Requirements. Than I Was Thinking That Coming To Lagos Would Be A Total Set Free To My Situation But Coming Into Lagos To Meet And See Another Face Of Story, It Wasn't So Eazy From The Beginning If Not God I For No Know How E For Be Today.....

Being one of the best DJ at the moment, was that part of the yardstick that made Radio Stations to be calling you for jobs?

‎I Was Discovered By Mr Frank Who Was Director For Radio Personnel And He Always Take Me Along With Him, Before Now, I Was Working As Promoter and Online Hypeman. I Also Did Series Of Job For Them. Mr Frank Later Called Me To Come Play At One Radio Station At Enugu. Where He Instructed Me To Play For Just 30minutes Which I Did. From Then, I Always Perform At Midnight Programs In Any Station Visited. Hence, It Got To This Stage In My Career. 

The style you used to brand yourself is different from other DJs, how did you get that concept?

As Far As Entertainment Is Concerned In Nigeria, We All Know That We Need Packaging. We Must Be Different Also. If You Want Something Different, You Have To Be Very Creative. If You Really Want To Remain On Top, You Have To Distinguish Yourself From Other People. This Is What Will Make You Big. If You are Different, Some People Will Be Imitating You As Their Role Model. 

What was your difficulties as a DJ? 

There Were Lots Of Difficulties While Growing Up As A DJ. To Buy DJ Equipment Has Been A Major Issue . If I Collect Two Thousand Naira Show Then, It Was a Very Big Money For Me. I Was Using Deck. And Another One Is Numark. I Would Use Two Hundred Out Of The Two Thousand As Transport To A Friend Place To Rent Amplifier And Deck For The Show. By The Time I Would Get To The Event Place, My Cloths And Trouser Would Have Been Very Dirty. I Would Be Using My Cloths To Clean My Face With Sweat. At The End, People We Work Up To Congratulating Me That They Enjoyed My Play And The party because That Was My Aim.

Honestly, I Think I Am One Of The Cheapest DJs In Town, Just Contact Me For Your Upcoming Events And See How The Price Goes.

What genres of music do you like the most?

Before I Started My Career As A DJ, I Loved Hip Hop Music. Then As An Aspiring Entertainer I Was Into Rap Music Before I Later Delved In The World Of The DJs, I Had A Demo Tape Which Is Still Alive Till Date This To Say Am Multi Genre. Whenever You Want To Perform, What Do You Do And How Do You Select Your Music? First And Foremost, I Am Very Equipped In Term Of The Genres Of Music I Want To Play. I Have My Laptop Loaded With Music. Sometimes, I Cross- Check Everything And See What I Am Lacking In Terms Of New Songs That Might Just Not Be In The Right Places. On A Daily Basis, I Am Buying Music Online; And Also Going Through My Mails Checking Out Who Sent Me What And Where I Am Needed At Any Point In Time. Some Times When I Play Outside The Country I Intend To Enjoy DJ More Because People Accept More Genres Of Music I Would Play A Bit Of Reggae, A Bit Of Calypso Hip Pop, RnB, Afro Play A Bit Of Everything.
