As the world slowly relieves back to normalcy with the constraints on celebrations being raised, US-based Nigerian video jockey, DJ Kev has actually begun warming the American audience to the reboot of social activities with his robust Afrobeat set.
He just recently hosted popular Nigerian artiste, Dotman to his music occasion tagged Legwork Night at the high end Afro-Caribbean hangout, Personal privacy Lounge, Atlanta. Anchored by popular Nigerian comic, Elenu, DJ Kev dealt with the audience to an enjoyable night with a great mix of music categories from Afrobeats to Hip-hop. Reggae, Soca, Kompa, and Kizomba.
Speaking on the success of the occasion, DJ Kev revealed: All twelve areas were offered out regardless of the reality that the occasion was prepared in less than a week. Legwork Night was for fans of the culture. It was a night where Nigerian music was played throughout. I did it for the culture and the turnout was great. The feedback from the audience was absolutely nothing except fantastic.
Nevertheless, he reckoned, Being a Nigerian DJ and promoter in America is challenging at all. We desire Afrobeats to be understood to the world and not just amongst Africans. I personally attempt to blend hip hop, reggae, dancehall, and Afrobeats together so it can be varied. We generally have individuals from all over come together and enjoy themselves. We see Americans dancing and singing Afrobeat tunes word-for-word and it wasnt that method 4 years earlier.
DJ Kev plays up to 4 gigs weekly in the city of Atlanta at a few of the most significant clubs such as Personal privacy Lounge, XO Lounge, and Living Space Lounge to name a few.
He exposes: I generally inform individuals my weekend begins with Thursday since I have gigs from Thursday throughout Sunday. Individuals value my skill and art really typically. Often, I get pointers more than what I make in the night from individuals I do not even understand. I understand a number of individuals that pertain to my gig even if they delight in the method I play and the variety of my music.
