Nigerian DJs lack branding, expensive equipment – DJ Xzee
A Nigerian deejay (DJ), Hammed Ademola Yekini (stage name: DJ Xzee) has lamented the lack of branding by a lot of young DJs in the country. Yekini who was reacting to a question on “the challenges Nigerian Dee-Jays are facing” said; “First of all, we lack branding. A lot of young DJs are good in this field, but due to being a young talent, they aren’t being regarded as a brand because they aren’t big.
“When I say big, I mean they don’t have the expensive equipment to cover for big events.” Commenting on the cost of buying instruments, Hammed said the least set a professional DJ can acquire for the job cost no lesser than Five Hundred Thousand Naira (500,000) and people that invite same deejays (DJs) to event will offer about Twenty Thousand Naira (N20,000) for their service.
DJ Xzee said one of his proudest moment as a deejay (DJ) was seeing people turn up for his “Lagos Invasion” event held in 2017. He also hosted Summer Vibe Fest in 2019 and has played in several clubs both in Island and Mainland in Lagos State. DJ Xzee is planning to host this year (2020), Summer Vibez which is scheduled for many editions including: Summer Vibez Fest 2.0, Summer Vibez Pool Party, Summer Vibez Club Edition, and Summer Vibez House Party.
