MAKHITS: For how long have you been a DJ and what prompted you to become a DJ?
DEEJAY TONY: I started my DJ’ing carrier in 2010 as an amateur, but I went professional in 2011/2012. I had passion for the art right from when I was in secondary school, but I never had the opportunity, until 2010 when I graduated from secondary and met with the legendary DEEJAY CYPHA.
MAKHITS: Take us through the journey so far, how you started and how you got to this level.
DEEJAY TONY: Seriously, it hasn’t been easy, when I started, the major challenge I faced was convincing people that I am a DJ, and also convincing my parents that DJ’ing was not going to affect who I am or my education. I must confess, the level I have attained today is not by my power, it is the Lord’s doing.
MAKHITS: When you started off as a DJ, did you know you would get as much fame as you have now?
DEEJAY TONY: Sincerely speaking, I never thought I would get this far.
MAKHITS: Thank God you are here now.
