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!
