Question: Hi DJ, please tell us about yourself

 

Answer: My name is Ritdak Alex Wangkatda popularly known as DJ Deekay aka the “Life of the Party”. I am from Plateau state. I am an award-winning popular radio, club and mobile DJ in Jos. I’m also an artist with so many hit songs banging in the city of Jos and other parts of Nigeria. I’ve featured artists like Yange on the song “Oja” which has been on MTV Base and became number 2 on the Top Ten Street Jamz. I also had a song with Elixir titled “Oliapot” which became a Jos street anthem. Song currently was featured on the song “Giddem” with Kingpally making airways. My first international collabo with the billionaire music entertainment 1 by 1 features King Pharoah and Pablo from the UK. I have the most streamed mixtapes in this part of the country both in Jos and other parts of the country.

Question: Tell us about your journey and how did you start DJing?

Answer: I started djing in 2010 with my dad’s desktop computer. It was not until he got us a laptop computer that’s when I started djing full time. As of that time I was one of the youngest DJs in my town. I must say my journey as a DJ hasn’t been easy, at some point I was having issues with family not until my dad saw my zeal and passion for the hustle and had no choice but to support me being a son of a clergy. I have been in so many police cases as a young DJ and me being innocent, it got to a point I went for a year break but that never made me quit because I was believing in the bigger picture. In this part of Nigeria (Jos) finance has been the major problem for many young good DJs but the passion keep us going till this point and more to come.
