Q. It’s an honour to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about yourself and your story? How did you get to where you are today?

DJ Flava. The pleasure is mine. My name is Azeez Jagun, popularly known as DJ Flava. An international multi-genre DJ with many years of experience I have played around the world in about 25 countries so far, experiencing great culture and humanity. In addition, I have a clothing line that celebrates pop culture with themed street style. I was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and I’m currently based in Dubai, UAE. Since middle school, I’ve had a passion for music and fashion.

The music and fashion business really fascinated me throughout my school days in Nigeria, and it kept me motivated. Equality and determination are the keys to longevity. The African music culture is growing and expanding, and we are benefiting from its global dominance. The world is listening to us now.


Q. I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?

DJ Flava. Well, there’s no business without obstacles, or as I see them, stepping stones. They are there to make us stronger. I’ve had a few encounters, some of which involved subpar fashion materials, late deliveries, and a staff or labour shortage. Sometimes you’ve got an event planned to the tee and life comes along and upends everything; that’s when you have to remain focused on the end goal. We struggle a lot with copyright issues when creating mixes for content. I have mixes on major platforms; however, some platforms remove our mixes, making it difficult to stay relevant and be creative. I have Afrobeat mixtapes from volumes 1–42 available on Soundcloud, Audiomack, as well as YouTube, and you can find them at DJ Flava.


Q. Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialise in, and why should someone choose to work with you over the competition?

DJ Flava. As an international multi-genre DJ, I specialise in a wide range of sounds, music, and genres, including hip hop, afrobeats, Amapiano, House, R&B, and so on. I play at international gigs, festivals, carnivals, weddings, and so forth. I host and play from time to time at diverse clubs in Dubai, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Indonesia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Myanmar, South Africa, Uganda, Rwanda, Turkey, Georgia, Cyprus, Mozambique, and the list goes on. My endorsed clothing line launched 8 years ago, and I have over time fashioned different collections with social and environmental themes and culture appreciation themes. All my collections are available on Instagram at @flavamusic_merchandise as well as my personal account, @deejay_flava. I recently re-created my winter all-over logo tracksuit in white and black with a touch of street style. I also buy and sell cars internationally and have them delivered to various locations across the world. As for my clothing line, we take orders and deliver across the world. Orders can be placed through our Instagram pages. Our prices are unbeatable, and we are uniquely the best clothing brand you can find. We always go the extra mile to get our products to our customers and to rise above their expectations.

Q. What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their lives?

DJ Flava. Strive to achieve your objectives; never give up and keep your dream alive.

Q. Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?

DJ Flava. Achievement, fulfillment, and a mission accomplished.

Q. What’s next for you?

DJ Flava. To acquire more knowledge in the industry and accomplish my goals. I would like to expand my clothing line. I hope to be a role model for aspiring DJs across the world. Africa to the world.
