Following his outstanding performance in the Ghanaian showbiz industry, DJ Blow of Starr FM has been tipped to win Ghana’s Best Event DJ Award at the much-awaited Ghana DJ Awards slated for Saturday, February 21at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
Ghana DJ Awards is being organised by Mercury Republic to reward hardworking radio and mobile DJs who have contributed immensely to the growth of the entertainment industry in Ghana.
DJ Blow would be vying for the Best Event DJ of the Year spot with DJ Black, DJ Armani, DJ Kofi, DJ Mensah, DJ Vyrusky, Nii Aryee Tagoe, DJ Slim and DJ Am-in.
Music lovers and analysts have tipped him to outshine his colleagues in the awards due to his prominence as one of the finest, hardworking and most widely known DJs in the country, both on radio and on stage.
With over 20 years of impeccable radio experience, DJ Blow, known in private life as William Nanka Bruce, has over the years entertained music lovers on radio and at events across the country with his tactical selection of classical music mixes and excellent delivery.
He has played a host of corporate events and with a list of happy clients such as Tigo Ghana, MTN, GCBL, KLM, British American Tobacco, GTP and Total; making him the most viable contender for the award.
As Co-Director of Tag Team LTD and DJ of the world’s most celebrated monthly hangout’s Tulip Mirror Ball, he has captivated discerning patrons of the mature persuasion both on the dance floor and on radio in a manner that has never been witnessed before in this country.
DJ Blow already blows the minds of his listeners on Starr FM with his excellent taste for ‘old skuul’ music as he brings a whole new twist and turn to Starr FM’s adult contemporary music segment.
Growing up as a teenager in the 1980s, DJ Blow did the rounds at all hip clubs of the time; Babylon, Keteke, Cave du Roi, Black Caeser’s Palace, Stallion, Maharani, and was a regular at all the fun fairs at Christ the King School and ATTC.
An old student of Presbyterian Boys Secondary (Presec) at Legon, Bruce has always loved music and has been a keen collector of records, and lately CDs, which explains his huge repertoire of varied sound.
It would be recalled that DJ Blow, for over a decade, took many old school music enthusiasts on a musical journey back to the 80s through to the 90s after a hectic week and on tiresome Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
