Being a Dj has over time evolved to be one of the highest paying careers in our country today. The number of events that have been happening lately is a true revelation of how the career has turned out to be lucrative.

You will find hundreds of upcoming DJs in Kenya but only the most hardworking, creative and talented make it to the top.

DJs are part and parcel of the Kenyan entertainment industry. Unlike the past when an artist had to produce an album to be able to sell his music, DJs in Kenya have made it a lot easier for artists to get airplay for their single-song projects.

Walk into a bar, wedding, private party name it all, there is one thing in common; a DJ. Unlike in 2000s and 90s, today entertainment scene is being run by Deejays. Bars and restaurants, wedding planners, roadshows, radio shows, live television shows have corporate events have continuously set aside a budget for deejays.

This is the opportunity that Smirnoff Vodka saw while coming up with Smirnoff Battle of the Beats competition. The competition aimed to giving budding 20 DJs across the country a platform to penetrate into the national market.
