Awards are one avenue through which talents are appreciated, and for the DJs who have been on the low without a specific award, and this has not been encouraging for as most of them who often switch between being a Dj and artiste, just to find success and fame.

With the arrival African Global DJ Awards (AGDA), which is an award that will recognize hardworking DJs and also spur the younger ones into doing wonders on the spinning wheels, being a DJ will surely be an interesting thing.
Billed for 4th of May at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa, the event will honour DJs in  sixteen categories which will cover from the regional aspects of  the Dj profession to a broader global aspect. Female DJs who have been outstanding in the professions will also be honoured.
The event is organized by Mohammed Alfa of Stronghold Entertainment, Kolawole Ajayi of Kollertunz and Tope Esan of Stats Media.
 Nigeria’s legendary DJ Jimmy Jatt is likely to head the panel of judges which will be drawn from various countries of the world, while Barbz of Big Brother fame, Denrele Edun of Channel O, rapper Navio from Uganda, DJ Jam Jam from United Kingdom and Adams of Nigeria’s SoundCity will play host at the event.
