Veteran deejay Kaydee on Tuesday night emerged the winner of the East Africa Pioneer convention DJ battle. The competition held at Galileo Extreme in Nairobi had three finalists - Kaydee, DJ Spin and DJ E. DJ Kaydee trounced his competitors to take home the grand prize, the Pioneer CDj 900 and DJ M 350.
The event sponsored by Pioneer DJ and hosted by Credible Sounds had 700 participants ranging from DJs, club owners and deejaying enthusiasts. The attendees had a chance to buy Pioneer products and spare parts.
The event had a service bay where deejays were advised on maintenance of their equipment. Pioneer DJ, a global company, was hosting the event for the first time in East Africa.
"The event was very successful. It was also a good day for the Kenyan DJs to bond. I hope that this can happen often because DJs really need these conventions," said event organiser, Big Ted.
