When did you start disk jockeying?
I started professionally about a year ago, but been at it for more than two years now.
Why disk jockeying and not something else?
I have loved disk jockeying since I was a little boy in my junior secondary school days I had the opportunities of having mobile phones that could play audio files and during that period there were not much DJ mixes around, I had few of them and I used to moved at the way they were made and this built up my interest in it.
If not disk jockeying, what would you be doing professionally?
If not disk jockeying, I would have been doing what I am studying in the University now which is Computer Science.
How do you feel when you perform on stage?
I feel great and awesome. I feel my best when am on stage.
Tell us how you get your stage name?
Well, I was in class one day with my friends then I used to go by the name DJ Bossom and my friends thought that name does not actually give out what I am. They said I always had the right song to play at the right time and it is like having the right drug for medicine and they immediately named me
Have you worked with any artiste before?
No, not yet but I hope to do so soonest.
Did you face any challenges before attaining this point in your career?
Yes. there are always challenges and the most pressing of all is getting funds. Most of the instruments we use are very expensive even 200k does not even begin to buy most of the things we need. So fund is the always the most serious challenge.
Can you share some of your challenges with us?
Like I said earlier, getting funds for equipments is one of them. Another that I have faced is acceptance
into the business. As you know there are existing djs that people know hence people tend to hear them play rather than what we new have to offer.
Are you signed to any record label?
No, I am not.
Who are your models in the industry?
My role model in the industry is DJ Jimmy Jatt.
What are your plans for 2015?
My plans for 2015 is to come into industry big, make as many mixtapes as I can do. I have a good term helping with that. People should just watch out for me this year.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5years?
By God’s grace in the next 5years, I see myself as one of the names to reckon with in the industry.
A word for up and coming talents
Am still upcoming myself so its one of the things I follow. Hard work coupled with God and the sky is our starting point.
