MixmasterBrown “African Dj Of The Year”. A Lagos born and bred dj, hails from Cross River & Delta States. A proud Calabarboy at all ramifications. Spent some time in Jos. His love for music was discovered while in high school (Aguda Grammar school). Brown was only 16 years old when he started spinning records at neighborhood high schools with his family’s music equipment.His sister was so supportive of his skills and talent that she drove to the store to buy him his very first mixer (Gemini Pmx). Losing his dad in 1988 only made him work hard to be a better person.
By the time he left high school, he found himself as the pioneer DJ for the Nation’s number one record store (Tower Records and Tapes) owned by two (2) brothers-DJ Mannix and Collins Akpapunam.
While he was the head boy at Tower Records and Tapes, he mastered the secret and art of mixing.
He was the pioneer DJ in most of the up coming, night clubs in the country. It was through these shows that he built a reputation for mixing, which had him spinning with Djs Like Howie T, Grandmaster Greg e.t.c.
His good ear for music coupled with his mastery of mixing techniques made him popular among the show /party circle which also led to the discovery of some of the biggest musical acts in Nigeria.
He was the first runner up in the most fierce DJ/championship ever put together in the country. The media thought he earned first place but it wasn’t meant to be. Due to his smooth and calm attitude towards the art of DJing, so many people came up to him requesting to be showed and to be taught the secret. He made DJing so much fun in the eyes of all.
His dedication and contribution to DJing paid off when he was named the anchor deejay for the 50 Cent/G unit Concert and as one of the deejays for the Akon Concert,he was also summoned to be a part of the Jarule and Kelvin Lyttle concerts.He has practically deejayed in all levels of the field.
Mixmaster Brown, now based in Houston Texas, is on a mission, will he make it? Only time will tell.
