KENYA DJs:one on one with DJ Nickybu

One on one with Bungoma's finnest Dj


Music is a form of art; an expression of emotions which can be expressed in many form,but music is evolving and times are changing.I remember back in the days where the DJ was  just a regular  guy with a disc changer or a radio and he was given like all the respect.But nowadays its a totally different case,we find so many youths trying to fit in the DJ industry but they all give up on the way. Deejays industry is so crowded nowadays that getting through is a big problem.This weekend i had a chance to interview one of upcoming DJ from Bungoma,Kenya Nicholus Wambilianga Also known as Dj Nickybu and here is what he had to say about his journey:


So tell us about yourself,?
.I was born and raised in a small village Bungoma but studied at Kakamega High School for my secondary education,i later  joined University of Eldoret  to study General Agriculture,.



How did it all start for you?
my passion for deejaying started when i was in high school and that's what motivated me..it all started  in a certain event and the deejay  was really boring,he was playing country music and  i was familiar with the controller and i had my laptop..i just  asked for a chance to play and the floor was down to earth dancing and enjoying that's how i discovered that i can also move the crowd.

How did you come up with your name "Nickybu?
Nicky is a short form of Nicholas while 'bu' was given by my mother  as nickname so i combined the two


What's your preferred setup in a club or mixes?..
It all depends with the crowd that i am dealing with

How would you describe your own style as a DJ?
Its unique because i do less  more of scratches
