Mister Deejay is a DJ with a twist. He has a wacky sense of humor. He says music is his addiction and he demands that no one should even think about trying to cure him. He also writes(mostly about himself!) As such, we were honored when he accepted to make an appearance on The One Question Network.
We caught up with him and had interesting interview. Read it. We assure you that you will read it again!!
As Mister deejay, what’s your philosophy of life ?
A favorite quote of mine comes from Aristotle who said: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” I try to live by that idea.
What schools did you attend?
I went to Cavina School in Nairobi for preparatory; then to St Andrews Turi for senior school; I did my A-levels at Clifton College in Bristol; then I went to the states to attend Miami University.
As a child growing up, did you always want to do this? Did you not have other ambitions, say being a doctor, a taxi driver or an astronaut?
I don’t take much stock in the ambitions I had when I was a child. After all, what does a 10 year old know about life anyway? I can’t say for certain what I wanted to be when I was younger, but I know for sure that I have always had a deep love for music and I’ve always wanted to be involved in creating it.
Is it complicated being famous and does it govern your lifestyle?
I honestly do not think I am “famous”, so I’m not sure how to answer that. Life on that front is not complicated for me at all. However, I do value my personal privacy and I take great care to keep my professional and private lives separate.
Is it hard being a deejay and what does it take to be 1?
The act of deejaying itself is not difficult. With the right tools, you can teach yourself like I did. All it takes is practice and patience. Being a GOOD DJ, though… that is a different matter. For that you need to love music (and the art of music) to distraction.
What best advice can you give an upcoming deejay?
Practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, and when you’re done practicing, practice some more.
What is your definition of success?
Achieving your goals in love, in business and in family.
Are you successful?
Not yet… but I’m working on it.
