What has DJs done wrong?
Can a high life artist sing for 3hours
NON STOP without resting, even if
he's a HORSE, but a DJ kips the
party rolling till after hangover.
Can a highlife artist be paid N25k for
a show Even if he plays keyboard,
guitar, band, singing, backup,
trumpet. All- in- one, alone.
A DJ gathers Artists from all over the
Continent to perform at your
occasion and also make them sing
together for several hours.
Have you ever taught of calling,
Wizkid, 2face, Mavins, In fact all the
Nigerian and international artists for
only one wedding reception
Even U.S government cannot afford
My fellow professional DJs think
We have allowed this profession to
be so belittled that, most of us feel
ashamed to even tell our Girlfriends
\in laws that we DJ for a living,
because we no longer make anything
out of it.
For instance, Do u know how much
Sound City pays Dj Shabsy and Dj
Bobbi for there Mixtape sessions
If you have listened to them
consistently, what do they do in their
mix that you don't do in your own
Yet you give out your intelligence,
hard work, labour, resources etc very
A man once called me for a
programme and said why do you
charge like this? Is it not to come
and play music?
*I TOLD HIM TO USE HIS DVD HOME
(even though I know that there are
thousands of current mix tapes
Why do u think artists have
managers? Even High life artists.
Artists give out their promos to be
popular and you think you do same
by uploading long mix tapes ......
Let me Break it down for you.
You the Dj, plays that music where
the Artist can never dream of
performing thereby introducing him
indirectly to the guests in that event. maternity wedding guest dresses
But wen those event managers now
think of him performing for them,
they can never bargain 25k as price.
So what has been your reward both
for your long Mixtape and cheap
Come to think of it ooo
Its so rare for an artist to climb on
stage and start promoting a dj that is
not present in dat occasion.
My heart bleeds anytime I remember
that even MC's are paid higher than
DJs in this town which leads me to
the following questions?
1: What does an MC come to the
occasion with? Probably good
looking dress and brain to crack a
Then does it mean that DJs don't
dress well or have brains to mix
2: Does it mean that Equipments are
now so cheap that it doesn't matter
the price you( DJ) charge?
I take at least two able bodied men
to my occasion because I can't carry
speakers, amps, mixers etc alone and
even if I do, with which strength am I
expected to stand up and play for
several hours or hasn't it occurred to
you that fatigue can affect your
mixing and production?
3: Must an MC come to an occasion
with a car? Ans. = No, a simple Keke
But you need to see the reaction I get
from my lorry drivers when I price
them low to carry my equipments to
The popular question they ask is
"What am I going to tell my wife and
kids wen I get home"? So I left with
the car to go and do abeg work. Will
abeg pay my house rents, children's
school fees, put food on my table.
Abeg eeeee make I ask oooooo
Dont Djs have rents to pay, school
fees , food etc..
Please Professional Djs try and
maintain the Integrity of our noble
and honourable profession, don't
spoil the name of your fellow Dj
simply because you are contesting
(for a show, bar, hotel, lounge,
restaurant, night club, parties etc)
Try and be your brothers keeper
because this Organisation has
brought us together as brothers and
If you have more than one show at
the same time, try and pass-on the
others to brothers who don't have
shows, you don't know if he will be
the one to rescue you if you have
problem in your own shows.
