Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu reveals he used to be a DJ
The Former Lagos State Governor and All Progressive Congress Elder, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has revealed a bit of his past claiming he used to be a Disk Jockey (DJ) .
Not so many can picture the ‘Jagaban’ with a large earpiece around his head and a turn table but this is true.
Tinubu, the APC chieftain said; “I was interested in music. I enjoy music, from the days of James Brown. I told you I followed Roy Chicago to Ado-Ekiti, without knowing. I was just lucky. God just made me a professional because I could have ended up with the late Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister!,”
The politician in an interview with TheNEWS magazine during his birthday celebrations added that: “We used to follow him (Ayinde Barrister) about during the Ramadan, to the extent that I would be locked out. Whenever there was a competition around Lagos Island or anywhere, we were always there. There was always the possibility of violence because of the competition,”
Speaking on his Skills as a DJ, he added: “But then I was an in-house DJ, not a commercial DJ. Teddy Pendergrass was my favourite and I kept myself updated on the music scene in America.
“You don’t have music now. You now have O foka sibe, O gbona feli feli. I love listening to jazz a lot,” he said of modern music.”
