Meet the Winner of the 7th Edition of the Underground Competition – DJ Cypha
Underground 7 winner DJ Cypha is a DJ on the rise. The graduate of Animal Science from the University of Agriculture hails from the heartbeat of the nation Edo State and has been disc jockeying professionally for the past 5 years. He started out as an on-air-personality on Radio Benue during his University days but switched to deejaying later on.

In search for greater challenges, he recently moved to Lagos after the completion of his degree and says his favorite style of deejaying is combining perfect blends with a pinch of cutting and scratching to give rise to a high energy mix that keeps the crowd dancing all the time. Influenced by DJ Q bert, Grand Master Flash and Mis Master Tee, DJ Cypha intends to be one of the forces to be reckoned with in Africa.

BN wishes DJ Cypha all the best in his career!

    No matter how many times I see DJ Sose’s picture, I’m always overwhelmed by what would prompt a man to do that to his face?

      Considering it’s fake, it’s probably not a big deal. It’s a signature attention grabber that gets people talking. But it ain’t real.

    @DJ Sose, Why would a person put such a tattoo on his face??? I remember seeing him in Goldie’s video, i thought it was not for real until now…

    Congrats Eiye Binitie! yours is a true example of holding on in the midst of frustrations. I know how you stepped out on nothing( from our hay days at Uni. Agric. Mkd., and how you thrilled us on Radio Benue with your shows); now see you landing on something! Thats what dreams are made of! Rock on man!
