Being an entertainer in Nigeria is a perilous fit, only few know how to steer the wagon and make something genuine from it. Some of them do not have much branding and quality, like you randomly type in a certain ‘A List’ act into your favorite search engine and nothing concrete or resourceful comes up. Just photos of them at this and that event; woo to them.
For a DJ to have a website that is so informative and easily accessible is rare. Even at that, his brand is well put together with a team that actually gets back to you when you place calls across for interviews.
