I grew up in Tema and was one stubborn boy climbing every mango tree. They used to beat me a lot, my mum especially. She could beat you with anything, from ‘bankuta’ to belt to ladle… just anything.
I’m the first born and I have two (2) other siblings. I’m the only boy.
I started at Tema First Baptist School and completed JHS at St. Paul’s Methodist, also in Tema. I went to Koforidua Secondary Technical School (Mmarima mma), then to Kumasi Polytechnic and KNUST.
I am a quantity surveyor and by experience, a building contractor.
I wanted to become an architect so I took building construction as my course in SHS, and then I got my second choice course in tertiary but I grew to love that more than the architecture. A cousin of mine was a senior quantity surveyor too so he made me develop the interest.
The speakers I use do not sound like the regular speakers with the punchy sound. It hits you slowly like it has some wuush to it..like some foam effect. I was having this conversation with a friend and from that time, he started calling me wuush. The wuush sounds and it became popular among my friends.
It’s been 4 years now.
My biggest gig was at a wedding reception at the State Banquet Hall. The most challenging was one in Kumasi, it rained heavily.
Patience and acting nice
They should just be committed and disciplined.
Not at all! I never thought of becoming a DJ. My plan was to rent out speakers to DJs and churches. I got a guy to dj for me at my first event and he messed up by being extremely late. He showed up at 2pm for an 11am progam. I brushed it off and he did the same thing for the next program. I had a wedding and I decided to learn the djing and play myself. I learnt in three days and the guests enjoyed my performance. That was it
Hahahahahha! They wished they could also do that.
Hehehehe…The best part is being able to finish a job to the client’s satisfaction and being recommended.
So I’m married, 8 years now with two children, a boy and a girl; 8 years and 6 years respectively. My wife is also an engineer.
Because I’ve always worked for myself, I think I’ve been able to balance it well. It’s really not been something new to me.
Hahahahaha! I want to teach her.
My children Joel and Janell
Hehehehe! She’s ‘I’
(She’s I…Children are J…You are K…IJK…😊)
Yeeeeaaaahhh…the Queen of England 🙈
Wow….my service…my sound, most people talk about that after every event.
Punctuality…the vibe and energy…the excitement and joy. I sometimes appear more excited than the clients.
My packages stands out for now…. wuushbooth
I sometimes meet with clients and planners to help plan your day musically…Party is assured ☺️
That would be Vyrusky…Hmmmm, in five years, I dream of a bigger Wuush with branches all over.
(Reaction: Wuuuushman! I’ve no question for you. I just wanna say I love your work and your vibe. No dulling moment.)
Had some few requests but I’m yet to
The guests oo. But I take some glances at the couple.
Couples pay for guests to come enjoy oo.
Hehehehe! Gospel is my comfort zone.
So let me share this here: I played at a lady’s engagement and when it was time to bring the bride, I slot in a gospel song and by the time we realized, it was a prolonged period of worship and praise. All the guests were on their feet and the bride couldn’t come out till it was over. She had requested a circular song but she ended up coming out with a cool gospel.
I just take 500 Ghana Cedis (almost $80), non refundable to book. The rest should be paid, latest, a week to the event.
I’m cool, but I love it when you say ‘wuush’. I love it more when the one with the mic doesn’t have to call out DJ DJ, but we communicate with our eyes and gestures so I know when to pause and play. That’s ‘cooler’.
(Reaction: First thing I do is introduce myself to the DJ and ask for his or her name. Then I use it throughout the event. I’ve been to events where the MC disrespected the DJ and smelled pepper. High volume when people were talking, low volume when people were dancing🤣
I love indoor. It’s more intimate and the lighting effects is felt properly. Plus, we can still jam even when it rains.
Charley! They keep changing oo but I will go for Sarkodie, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
Yes, we do. We pay royalties annually to Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO).
About 600 Ghana cedis (about $100)
(Reaction: It adds up. Imagine 1,000 DJs paying this every year. That’s one V8 oooo)
None that I know of, but I know there’s a WhatsApp group
