The Professional Disc Jockeys Association of Nigeria (PDJAN) on Friday called for more recognition in the entertainment industry.
Mr Onyenegecha Isaac (Dj MarSs), media officer of the association told reporters that the association contributes more to the entertainment industry than the current accolades.
He said that being a Disc Jockey goes beyond playing a music as there are other technicalities which gives more life to a music and the gathering where it’s being played.
“We are the heart of entertainment industry, without Deejays, no form of entertainment will make sense just that we are behind the scene like the cameramen.
“Without the deejays, no artist song will make sense or meaning to you in a dance floor, we deejays manipulate the songs artistically because deejaying is an art.
“Playing a song originally the way it’s being sang, may be very boring.
“The deejays play a song with his own professional touches or discretion to suit the mood at every point in time as the event progresses.
“We effect the songs making it more interesting, we pitch the songs to its best danceable tempo for our guests to enjoy. You can never get the best of a song at its normal recorded tempo at an event,” he said.
Isaac added that Deejays also make input in songs production and help in marketing a list and upcoming artistes by strategically imposing their songs on the listeners’ ears.
“A Deejay knows a good song, tells most artist where to improve on and how to go about their career sometimes.
“The Deejays promote artistes’ songs via association and constant playing till it becomes an anthem to everyone. Consciously or unconsciously, you start liking and singing along.
“Deejays support upcoming artist along in most events to showcase their talent pending when their breakthrough comes,” he added.
Isaac said that the association would be signing artistes towards the end of the year while some would be linked with record labels.

My goal is to remain chubby, sexy and healthy – Eniola Badmus
Nollywood actress and movie producer, Eniola Badmus has disclosed in an interview she said that she does not want to be fat and unhealthy.
Although Eniola is someone who has always been proud of being a plus-size and never allowed her size to slow down her style, she has disclosed that her goal is to remain chubby, sexy, and healthy.
When asked if and why she wants to lose weight, the 42-year-old said “I didn’t initially decide to go on a weight loss journey; it chose me.
“It all started when I put up a post a while back about weight loss companies using slim people to promote their products and services.”
“I told them to use me if truly their products work. A lot of them picked up the challenge but I was able to settle with the ‘deshapeables’. I decided to work with them because I like their plan and I hope it would work. “
The dark-skinned talented tv goddess also mentioned that if she is not scared if her weight loss would affect her fame.
According to her, she does not plan to go slim. In her words “In fairness, I really can’t tell if losing weight would help my brand because with or without losing weight, I’m Eniola Badmus. If this works, people would just see the new body on me”.
“However, it’s not going to be a total transformation because I still want to be a chubby girl; not slim. The goal is to be chubby but sexier.”
“Maybe like losing three sizes. People should not think that I would be a shadow of who they know. I’m only doing this because I want to. No matter how much we shout about body positivity, one would still have to be on a diet. One would have to watch what one eats and exercise.”
She also said:
“I don’t want to be plus-size and unhealthy. I might not work-out like fitness enthusiasts but I try to keep fit. For clarity’s sake, I didn’t and don’t bend to societal pressure. I have very thick skin and like to do whatever suites me at any particular time. The idea is to see what I would look like afterward. There are some clothes I feel like wearing but can’t wear them till I lose weight. I still belong to the ‘fat girls association”.
People believe that my boobs are too big to be real-Ada la Pinky

In an interview, Ada said, “People believe that my boobs are too big to be real but they are 100 percent natural. I have never done any surgery to make my boobs bigger. I used to be skinny a few years back until I began to gain weight. As I grew bigger, My boobs grew. If one gains weight, every part of one’s body would become bigger.”
Recalling how she started her entertainment career as a dancer before delving into comedy, she said, “I started my career as a dancer and video vixen with the help of Clarence Peters. However, when I started gaining weight, I could no longer continue being a vixen. I felt I didn’t fit in anymore because of my size, so I decided to switch to comedy. My life has always been about entertaining people. I realized I had to do something better, hence I switched to comedy.”
When asked about her relationship with another online comedian, Adebayo Abidemi, popularly known as Isbae_U, who she regularly appears in skits with, she simply said, “You will know. That’s all I have to say in response to this question.”

The busty comedienne also noted that she had never got anything for free on account of her fame. “I have never used my fame to get anything for free. As a matter of fact, the reverse is the case because I even give out. I feel I have been blessed, so I should also be a blessing to others,” she added.
