I follow social media a lot, where i found out the twitter handle for Nigerian DJs is @NigerianDJs & maybe other is @9jadjpool , They don't help Up-coming DJs and they also promote few of Nigerian DJs, even those who do Online Mixtape, We all forget ‘an injury to one is injury to all’. We want to leave a legacy that builds upon why (DJAN) was created, It's more important to be part of a process by supporting (DJAN) in all aspect.
Why Nigerian Awards are not including Nigeria DJs & DJ Songs?
in 2007 NEA Awards include only 1 DJ category (Battle of U.S. Based DJS) and the Winner is – DJ Zimo. in 2008 NEA Awards change the category to (Best World DJ) and the Winner is DJ Humility. in 2009 NEA Awards Best world DJ goes to DJ Neptune. in 2010 NEA Awards Best world DJ goes to DJ Xclusive. in 2011 NEA Awards Best world DJ goes to DJ Obi. in 2012 NEA Awards Best world DJ goes to DJ Jimmy Jat. in 2013 NEA Awards Best world DJ goes to DJ Bayo. in 2014 NEA Awards Best world DJ goes to DJ Spinall. in 2015 NEA Awards created 2 categories for DJs, Male & Female. DJ Kaywise and DJ Cuppy bag those one. I think we don't have female DJs in Nigeria before 2015. more categories for DJ was created last year, "Disk Jockey Collaboration of the Year." "Disk Jockey of the Year (Male)". "Disk Jockey of the Year (Female)" and "Disk Jockey of the Year (Non-Nigerian)" on NEA Awards. Nothing like DJ Awards on Headies and other Awards in Nigeria.
Nigeria is blessed with so much talent and being a DJ is one of them, DJs are tick in the Nigerian Entertainment industry today and DJs who are influential should set the pace for others to follow in Nigeria today. One cannot talk about being a DJ in Nigeria today without using DJ Jimmy Jatt as the reference point and as a godfather in the business also a President of (DJAN), You need to see how hard Nigeria DJs are working day in, day out, Mixtape here and there, all they got is nothing, When DJs can't show themselves Love, respect should not be expected from Artists.
Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again, All we need is CHANGE.
How many DJs in Nigeria getting paid like Nigerian Artists?, and Without DJs Let us strive to leave this type of legacy before we leave this earth, The gift you leave behind will surely becomes the birthright of your people. Legacies are not the result of wishful thinking, they are the results of determined doing. "The legacy you leave is the life you lead and the actions you take - they are what tell your story"
I Urge DJ Jimmy Jat, DJ Humility, DJ Neptune, DJ Sose, DJ Wal, DJ DeeMoney, DJ Snoop D Damaja, DJ 3k, DJ ECool, DJ Spinall, DJ Enimoney, DJ Baddo, and other Nigerian DJs to leave up-coming DJs a legacy of love and respect. Today's footprint is tomorrow's LEGACY.
