The tour has taken Nigeria’s number one DJ through Factory78 TV, Bang Radio, ‘DBoy Overstands show‘ African Dazzle Magazine, BBC 1Xtra, Afrobeat360 and Capital Xtra – anchored by diaspora media consultant, Tola Onigbanjo.
“This was really an important tour for me for many reasons,” said DJ Jimmy. “It’s one thing to be appreciated by all of my colleagues and mentees and others in the industry, and to feel that love. But to step out on the streets and go around the United Kingdom and to connect with my people and to feel that energy, that connection… it’s powerful. I am very glad that, after 25 years, people are still excited about my work. I am ready to go for another 25!”
