Deejays

Deejay Jahkid | Why am considered Kenyan first rising star.

FULL NAME

My name is SHABAN KAMAU NGUGI

FOR HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY?

I’ve been in the industry for now 3yrs as a professional deejay/mcee or call it entertainer,

WHATS MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER  DEEJAYS?

I’d say am different from other deejays considering my way of delivering my work to my customers who are my bosses. I am habitual to leaving my customers fully certified with my work,that is why am considered Kenyan first rising star.

WHAT WAS YOUR PARENTS REACTION WHEN YOU DECIDED TO PURSUE DJ AS A CAREER?

It hit them very hard and as any other caring parent they saw deejaying as a job that doesn’t pay, they also did not agree to it I had to flee from home to Nairobi and live with my big brother so I used to show him all the advantages of being a Deejay and he was convinced that I was not ready to give up my dream so he helped me talk to my parents and yeah they decided to give me a shot and now they agree that it’s a career like any other.

BEST PLACE YOU HAVE PLAYED SO FAR?

Citizen tv one love show, Kutv reggae iration show,the eldoret annual pamoja concert and may other public events not forgetting clubs

ANYONE IN PARTICULAR WHO HAVE BEEN INSTRUMENTAL TO YOUR GROWTH IN THE INDUSTRY?

Yea so after graduating as a professional deejay I did not have anywhere to start considering I was like a new born baby in the industry.so I stayed out trying to figure things out and on the process I met VDJ VOSTI SPARTAN who saw me a young star, he saw  what I can do he took me to many crowded places as an exposure and I proved to him that I was that good that is when he made me join his brand THE SPARTAN MUSIC GROUP am now 1 year old in the unit.He has been my mentor my big brother and my manager also.

WHO DO YOU LOOK UP TO?

I’d say Deejay Cleo one of the best deejays in Africa and global.

HOW TO YOU HANDLE CLIENTS WHO REFUSE TO PAY AFTER A GIG?

Nowadays we work with contracts so just in case there’s a miss understanding or the client refuses to pay we take the contract to court yeah that way everyone gets his right.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO APART FROM DEEJAYING ?

I do social marketing and am also a mentor and brand ambassador to PERFECT VIBES DEEJAY ACADEMY located in kitengela behind NOMAD’S PLATINUM LOUNGE

IF I WANNA HIRE YOU, WHAT ARE THE RATES?

20k per night or day.

WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS

In future I have a plan of opening my own branded Deejay academy maybe across all counties and also have my own show that I host and support all upcoming talents be it deejays,mcees or artists and also to be one of the most celebrated personality.
