  • HOW TO YOU MANAGE BETWEEN BEING A DEEJAY AND A MOTHER?

I’m not a mother yet but I hope to be soon.

  • DO MALE DEEJAYS LOOK DOWN UPON THEIR FEMALE COUNTERPARTS?

Yes, some male DJs do look down on us, but only the ones who are insecure about their own skill. Most of them are extremely supportive though, which is something I’m grateful for.

  • HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DEEJAYING?

I have been deejaying for 10 years now – I joined Music Technology Academy (Homeboyz) in 2009.

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

The DJ community is small, so once word gets around that a certain club has refused to pay, no other DJ will accept any gig at the said club.

  • BEST WAY TO UNWIND AFTER A GIG?

After a gig I’m usually exhausted so I just want to go home and get my beautiful sleep

  • WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO APART FROM DEEJAYING?

At the moment deejaying is my full time hustle, although I want to get into music production soon.

  • WHICH IS YOUR BEST CLUB SO FAR?

My favorite club used to be natives but unfortunately it was brought down. At the moment I’m really loving Jiweke Tavern

  • TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR GROWING UP?

I grew up in Buru, the first born of 3 siblings. I’ve always loved music & entertainment, and I remember one day while riding in a buru matatu I heard DJ Joe Mfalme’s mixtape and I knew I wanted to do exactly what he was doing despite the fact that I didn’t understand whatever it was.

  • ADVICE TO UPCOMING DEEJAYS WHO LOOK UPON YOU AS A ROLE MODEL

Be authentic – be you, cause everyone else is taken. Also, take every chance you get to sell yourself: social media platforms e.g mixcloud, twitter, youtube; Media Interviews & appearances etc.

Always remember that hard work pays, but it’s going to take a while before you attain the level of success that you desire for yourself so be patient, and focus on your skill.
