Just like the recently concluded Uganda Entertainment Awards, The Nigeria Entertainment Awards took place last Sunday the 4th of September at the prestigious Tribeca Performing Art Center in New York. The Dj duo beat stiff competition from other 5 Djs in the category of Best Non-African disk jockey.
They tussled it out with Djs Lebbie from Sierra Leone, Bossman from Liberia, Mensah from Ghana, Joe Mfalme from neighbouring Kenya and Vyrusky from Ghana, emerging winners although they did not personally grace the awarding ceremony to pick their award.
“We feel good because it’s our first international award nomination and we won it so it has opened the Ugandan Dj industry to the African market. It’s a great stepping stone but we did’nt have hope because of the big names we were competing with. We had a strong voting team and of course God is above everything.” excited Dj Roja told Chano8.
We went ahead and asked the Dj duo on how they now plan to tap in the West African market now that they won an award in Nigerian awards.
Nigeria is a very big country with a larger population, it’s hard to conquer it all and you know they put their people first but we shall try and see that we get a few gigs there so that the brand is recognised and we have connections. We want to thank the fans and all friends who voted and mobilised. God bless them
