Merqury Republic, organisers of the prestigious annual Ghana DJ Awards, are set to host the first session of the first ever Disc Jockey (DJ) Cypher in Africa this Saturday, January 28.

The event, which will be broadcast live on Facebook, will feature skillful DJs randomly selected from various parts of Ghana.

A DJ Cypher is a short display of Disc Jockeying talent from an incredibly wide range of DJs. It combines all realms of deejaying, whether it’s a rookie DJ, a seasoned one or an international DJ you had no idea about.

Each DJ will bring their own style to the mix, in turns, giving their audience a great showdown.

Mr Hubert Kofi Anti, Coordinator of the event which happens to be one of the events preceding the 2017 Ghana DJ Awards, explained in a statement that, “We looked at the DJs that actually play with DJ flair and selected them from different areas of the country.”

“The first section which comes off on Saturday is a curtain raiser for more sessions in coming weeks,” he added.

In an interview, one of the participants, who won the best discovery Ghana DJ Awards 2016, DJ Wabs, said, “I think it’s a great experience being the first ever in Africa… It’s a pleasure being part of history, Ghana and Africa should watch out for a lot of scratches and Turntable tricks on the Cypher.”

The six DJs who made the list for the first edition are DJ Que, DJ Bryte, DJ Mpesempese, DJ Gospol, DJ Laxtick, DJ Kevin.
