2009 Grove Music Studios...... the creative process should be fun..... never take yourself too seriously..... Me doing my best Manchester impersonation in this clip 😂......... I’m currently finishing a new project look forward to sharing it later this year. #djkofi #iamkofi #therealdjkofi #djlifestyle #dowhatyoulove
2002, get a booking in Nairobi, get sent the flyer and then realise I’m battling a whole crew of DJ’s 😂....... believe it or not I came out on-top. (I will post the footage soon) The key was experience and flipping their local tracks in a way they had not heard before. Never underestimate experience 😉..... #djkofi #iamkofi #therealdjkofi #djlifestyle #dowhatyoulove
GSS and I in Athens March 2010.... One of those moments when all your skills are required and they pay off. DJing, VJing, Producing and the ability to read a crowd. You never know if someone who can change your life, is watching...... #djkofi #iamkofi #therealdjkofi #djlifestyle #dowhatyoulove
The year 2000, Another project that opened doors internationally for me. This had a lot of blends that would later be coined “Mash Ups” later on in the 00’s.... Here’s a sound bite of a fan in Cape Town South Africa talking about a show I did out there. #iamkofi #djkofi #therealdjkofi #djlifestyle #dowhatyoulove
PSM & I are no strangers to being locked in a rehearsal room working out festival sets.... check out our work with Gorillaz Sound System. In 2013 it was time to do for self. Pt2 of my 2013 Redbull studio sessions. Bringing a live element to my production. #djkofi #therealdjkofi #iamkofi #dowhatyoulove #djlifestyle
2007 Alex Akosi, Bill Roedy (former CEO of MTV) and I at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. One of the craziest gigs Ive done in my life..... rocking world leaders. I had Lyor Cohen buggin out over a Fela Kuti Vs Run DMC mash up I did live 😎. #djkofi #therealdjkofi #iamkofi #djlifestyle #dowhatyoulove.
As I reflect on the 30 years of me DJing, I remember how blessed I've been to do what I love and see the world at the same time. I'm forever greatful for that 🙏🏿. In 2008 I was the first ever resident DJ for the MAMA's held in Abuja Nigeria. I chose an African name as my DJ name and its been so dope as I get so much love on the African continent, the energy there is unmatched. #dowhatyoulove #djkofi #therealdjkofi #iamkofi #africa #nigeria #mtv #mama #westafrica #djlifestyle
