I have been djing for over a decade now, I have worked for various telecommunication companies in Nigeria, Djed at events held in foreign Embassies in Nigeria, Corporate organizations and private parties.
I have partnered with with loads of companies all over Nigeria but I was looking for away to give back to the society.
So, when my father , His Imperial Majesty The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi was crowned as the 51st Ooni of Ife, I saw it as an opportunity as I’m from Ile Ife and I said to myself, I have to be there.
First of all, I was surprised His Imperial Majesty is a young monarch. When he gave his speech during his coronation that he wants to engage the youth by helping them, I keyed into it. I prepared a proposal, submitted to the palace through Alhaji Rotimi Osobemekun.
By the grace of God Kabiyesi approved the proposal for as part of youth development and empowerment. Based on that proposal, we have already done our first edition, now the project is an annual event. It wouldn’t have been possible without my father the Ooni of Ife (kaaabiyessii oo).
HIM is a man of his word, a man of high integrity, many personalities will just say things, promise heaven and earth but when it comes to doing what tgey have promised, you don’t see action. I can tell you now that our father Arole Oduduwa is a man of action.
MY RELATIONSHIP WITH OONI OF IFE AS DJ:
My relationship with HIM now is based on how well the project was executed, with support of lot of good people including Kabiyesi’s friends, Kabiyesi knows that when he assigns something to us we won’t let him down, we respect Kabiyesi and The Palace and when he says something, he keeps to his words. We try all our possible best not to disappoint him because if we disappoint him, it will be as if HIM has disappointed others and we don’t want that to happen.
HOW OONI OF IFE TOOK ME TO UNITED KINGDOM AS ONE OF HIS ENTOURAGE.
HIM is our father, our OONI
Whenever HIM is going to the UK, he needs a representative of the youth because he has been creating wealth and youth empowerment, Royal DJ Nuff Jamz is one of the youth ambassadors for Ooni and for the Palace, when it comes to youth development and empowerment, come to Ile -Ife and ask for Nuff Jamz, everybody knows who I am, come to the Palace ask for Nuff Jamz, people know the person you want to see, I’m one of those, people see as a link to the Kabiyesi and to every important personalities in the Palace.(We give “Eledumare”God the glory),
HIM OONI has a large heart, it is because of him that i travelled to United Kingdom as a “Royal DJ”, it’s not because i have done anything special, all i have done is follow is instructions and whenever there is a problem i don’t go back to him i try and solve it because HIM would not give me something i cannot handle.
When he asks me to do something, I do it to the best of my ability , mere being the person that HIM calls is rewarding enough and to know that when he needs a DJ to entertain his guests with indigenous rich cultural tunes on every special occasion, it is fulfilling for me.
It is not about financial game, i learnt long time ago that Success follows you if you are passionate about something but if you chase money, you might not find success, but if you chase your passion success will follow you, when success follows you everything else is ok.
No doubt ” Igba Otun ti de gbogbo wa lama rerin Ayo o”
