Celebrated Nigerian Disc jockey ‘DJ Jimmy Jatt’ will be playing during tonight’s Saturday party in the Big Brother Naija house.
The DJ whose real name is Oluwaforijimi “Jimmy” Adewale Amu will be on the ones and twos tonight at the sixth Saturday party of Big Brother Naija season 3.
Jimmy Amu is a native of Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, but he was born and bred in Lagos Island, Lagos State, Nigeria.
Because his father was a sound equipment dealer, Jimmy Jatt developed interest in music at a tender age. He grew up listening to various genres of music including pop, afrojuju, highlife, afrobeat, jazz, hip-hop, rhythm and blues and soul.
He began his career as a rapper under the stage name Master J but had to switch into DJing after he failed to secure a record label contract upon releasing several songs and demos.
He soon became popular as a DJ for hosting a street carnival called “Road Block”, an event which involved lyrical rap battles between upcoming and underground rappers.
In 2007, he released a mixtape titled The Definition, a compilation of songs which features several Nigerian artistes including Sound Sultan, 2Baba, Mode 9, Naeto C, 9ice, Ruggedman, eLDee, M.I among others.
The mixtape included “Stylee”, a song which features vocals from 2Baba, Mode 9 and ElaJoe and went on to be nominated in two categoris at the 2007 edition of the Channel O Music Video Awards.
