No doubt that the DJs are one of the most patronized sectors in Nigeria’s entertainment industry.
Being a Dj is now one of the professions bringing in cool money. DJs can be called to any event ranging from weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, and every other celebration you can think of.
Years ago, Disc Jokey wasn’t considered one of the coolest businesses in Nigeria, as people consider Disc Jokers lazy hustlers only play from parties to parties. But now, considering the net worth of the richest DJs in Nigeria, Disc jockey is no longer underrated as prominent musicians usually hire Disc jockey as hypemen.
For example, Prolific Nigerian Disc Jockey Oke Adebowale Tony, popularly known as DJ 4kerty, has signed for DMW’s Label Boss, Davido, to be his official Disc Jockey.
In a recent interview, he made this known while recounting his relationship with the 30 billion gang leader, saying he (Davido) is a wonderful person to be with.
So, imagining prominent musicians like Davido, Wizkid, and Olamide Badoo hiring someone as their personal disc jockey to hype them whenever they need inspiration. Don’t you think they will be earning millions per month?
