‘You only need to take one look at me to know I was born to be different'
Dj Sose – The Tattooed Faced Dj

Born to a musically gifted Nigerian Father and a Hungarian mother, Dj Sose’s life became immersed with music right from childhood. He embraced the sounds of music, and began thinking of ways to ensure that music would play a pivotal role in his life even then. However it was never just one genre that managed to intrigue the ‘Tattooed faced Dj’. From the diverse range of music surrounding him, Sose became captivated by sounds from afro beats, to classical, to jazz, to hip hop, to rock, to EDM and the list goes on.

Until one sees this spin doctor in action one would not be able to fully appreciate what is meant when it is said, ‘What Dj Sose brings is not just an image, but he engulfs the presence of a born entertainer. He is a Winner of 'Performing Arts' at the Creative Industry Awards 2011 and was Awarded 9th Position by Channel O in its "Top Ten This Week" for the 'Top 10 Most Turnt Up Djs in Africa'. The origin of his stage name Dj ‘Sose’, short for 'Soseneyayi' is Esan deriving from his tribe Edo State Nigeria. Soseneyayi, means ‘Bear Witness To The Believer’.
