Give us some details about you and your story.
Hello everyone, I am Dj Expression. I was born and grew up in the streets of Lagos Nigeria and I am now based in Dallas Texas.
Hustle was the game of Life and in those streets of Lagos, my passion for creating, entertaining, dance and music was born.
I started off making dance mixes for my crew back in Nigeria and slowly formed a love for mixes and before I knew it, I was featured in my 1st major concert in Lagos and that sealed the deal for me.
Has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Nothing comes easy and my path has definitely not been a smooth ride. I personally give thanks to God; his blessings have kept me working hard and provided me with opportunities to meet and engage with people who genuinely love what I do as a DJ.
One major challenged I faced in my career path to becoming a DJ was the acceptance from my African Mother. She had a hard time learning that her only boy wanted to become a Disc Jockey instead of the traditional career most Africans pursue, such as Medicine, Engineering, Pharmacy or Law.
My mother gave me such a hard time about my decision, but it feels so great to now hear her tell me how proud she is of me; proud of my drive and proud of my accomplishments. Her prayers and blessings get me through a lot.
Please tell us about the DJ Expression Brand.
Expression is more than a Dj. He is entertainment at its finest. He is music, he is art and he is a creative. He finds joy behind the turn tables as a disc Jockey and behind the camera as a videographer.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
YES!! Being the only boy amongst four sisters especially growing up as the last born was enlighten. There is nothing I believe I can’t handle with a woman. So, I guess I would say my sisters made me a female whisperer 😂.
