 Top 5 Nigerian DJs

Jimmy Jatt is regarded as the king of the disc jockey business in Nigeria. However, there are more than a bunch of skillful hands in the industry that rock the sound waves with a motley of hot music with their artistry of spinning record discs. Connect Nigeria takes a look at five DJs: DJ Neptune, DJ Xclusive, DJ Spinall, DJ Humility and DJ KenTalky; all five are currently rocking the industry and are as good as Jimmy Jatt. In mid-December 2013, four of these Deejays, DJ Humilty, DJ Xclusive, DJ Neptune and DJ Jimmy Jatt, were all part of the Gulder Club Ultimate held at Eko Hotel where all 4 DJs were involved in musical battle while also pleasing fans that were at the exclusive party.   DJ Neptune Neptune is one of the prolific disc jockeys in the music industry. Named Imohiosen Patrick, DJ Neptune who is from Edo State, but born and brought up in Lagos State, started out as radio DJ and once worked with Ray Power FM before becoming a freelance DJ and performing at international and national concerts.

With his frequent mixtape titled The Cap getting attention online, Sodamola Oluseye Desmond, better known as DJ Spinall explains that his stage name signifies the fact that he plays all genre of music, thus, the name “Spin-all”.

Unstoppable DJ Spinall has worked as a DJ on Ray Power FM and Eko FM, both in Lagos.

The Cap has since then been his identity.   DJ Humility DJ Humility, whose real name is Benedict Afagwu, started making waves when he clinched the first place position at the Benson & Hedges DJ Championship in the early 2000s. About the same time, he was voted as Nigeria’s best radio DJ at the Gbedu Awards; in 2003, he won an award at the Fanta Fame Awards.


He has gone on to perform at some of the biggest concerts and shows in Africa and is currently working on penetrating the music industry abroad.
