“The support we need from government is to assist our course, like establishment of national secretariats for Nigerian DJs, establishment of DJ academics where upcoming youths would be trained.

“If you know Maroko then, it was so bad to the extent it was demolished by government and that was where I came out from, what am saying in essence is that nobody is privileged” .

“I want my members to see themselves as core professionals and expect them to be treated same, only if we are able to carry ourselves as responsible men and women in the society, the society too would in turn accord you the expected respect we demand from them”. He said.
