•••THE END •••
One will ask why did I ask DJ Nonkie Chana to come and chat with me. Well one of the reasons is I can relate to her hustle. It’s stressful to be a beginner at any field of work without support especially when you are a female DJ. We need to lend a hand to those that need us so that they can reach their dreams.
“Every field of work has its own ups and downs, so getting gigs and getting recognition as a female disc jockey are a few struggles I experience within the industry.” – DJ NonkieChana. When asked how she would like to be remembered this is what she said “I just want to be remembered as the dopest female disc jockey/producer.” In closing she said “just being able to do what I have always wanted to do and no one standing in my way..that’s total bliss in other words that’s FREEDOM!”
Nothing but Gods love, peace and blessings upon you all.
