Women are changing the rules of the game in almost every part of the world. Ranging from different occupations that were previously male-dominated to male-crowded workspaces, women are now stepping up the game on every sort of platform. Even in the genre of music, women are taking on more self-empowered roles to showcase more of their self-confidence and self-esteem. Electronic dance music that is produced largely for clubs, raves, and dance festivals, has long since the beginning of its origin attached a male connotation to it that tends to feed off a "bro culture." This type of environment controls the nightlife infrastructure, ranging all the way from club owners to venues and booking agencies to record labels etc. For over years, it's been difficult for a woman to book a gig as well as fight for her right to equal pay and other benefits that are more tilted towards favoring men. But, when I play and fire up the dancefloor, I make sure to break free from all the bounds that have restrained womankind since a century-long battle against men. It's not very often that you see a Ghanaian female DJ and entertainer lighting up the stage. When I play, everybody crowds around to watch and gawks at me positioned in the center with almost sheer and utter surprise. This is what makes it even more interesting. Despite my name and gender, I'm an ethnic Ghanaian, and I believe myself to be expertly qualified in the art of DJ-ing. My passion and love for creating new and improved quality music of top notch quality since a very young age is what has pushed me to pursue my interests and turn it into a tech savvy profession. In earlier times within university campuses and even off-campus party locations, you would've hardly seen a Ghanaian woman playing on stage. However, I bring to you a paradigm shift in the world of DJ-ing and set the benchmark even better than your regular DJs from before. In order to take control of the stage, you have to be a warrior, fighter, and struggler every single day. My experiences in life have truly served me with the motivation to excel in every situation and never back down from something that you truly want from deep within. Performing at a range of parties and events all over and the Ghana DJ Awards 2015 and 2016, I am proud to have been acclaimed the Best Female DJ of the Year at the Ghana DJ Awards 2015. If you're looking for quality, reliable and professional DJ services in Ghana you may avail my services for your non-stop music needs at all occasions. Experienced in the skill of DJ-ing for almost 4 years and serving my clients with the best sounds, I can easily correspond with you at any time to solve your queries or playlist questions so you can put your worried mind to ease. I take my work very seriously and tend to not define myself as a male or female DJ. I'm a human being first and foremost, and when am called upon, I simply like to be identified as the best DJ in town.

I feel very lucky that being a lady and at such a young age, I have achieved so many great things in my life. Being a DJ was always my dream and I never gave up. I never stopped working and it finally paid off. I have worked alongside many prominent names in the industry. I have played with several DJs from Ghana including DJ Vyrusky, DJ Mic Smith, DJ Black and many others. It is always a great feeling to meet these talented people who have the same passion as me.I have also been very fortunate to attend some of the best musical events where I performed and put my skills to test. It is always a bit nerve-wrecking to be on such great platforms along with people who''''''''ve been in the music industry for such a long time but I know there is no looking back now. Among the many events that I have been to are 020 Live, Vodafone X events which was organized by Vodafone Ghana and Ghana DJ Awards. I am also privileged enough to have hosted the legendary Akosua Agyapong @ 50. Being a female in the DJ industry can be a bit difficult. Whether you are DJing a party or a huge event, it is always difficult to earn respect and position among the audience. It takes real effort to convince your audience that you have what it takes to be a great DJ. And in lieu of that I would also love to mention that I have been the only female DJ to play alongside many great DJs who are loved worldwide. I have been fortunate enough to have been recognized for all my efforts as a young woman who loves to DJ. There have been times when I was discouraged to take up a profession that is only claimed by men, but I stuck to my passion and did my best. I knew from the start that I had to prove that I am good at what I do.Not only have I been lucky enough to be recognized for my DJ skills, but I have also won the award for "Best Female DJ" 2015. It has been a wonderful ride and I don't mean to stop now. I have realized that the more I push to make myself better at what I do, the more I will be rewarded for my work. It is not always the reward that motivated me, however. It is the passion for DJ that has been a constant force in making me work harder than anyone else in the DJ industry. My advice to the other girls who have a passion for DJing is that don't give up. If you work hard every day, you will achieve everything that you have dreamed of. No matter what anyone tells you, just keep moving forward and you will see that it everything is within your reach
