The former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and National leader of All Progressive Congress (APC) has disclosed he used to be a professional Disc jockey otherwise known as DJ.
He said this in an interview with TheNEWS magazine during his 60th birthday celebration.
“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!”
“We used to follow him (Ayinde Barrister) about for during the Ramadan, to the extent that I would be locked out. Whenever there was competition around Lagos Island or anywhere, we were always there. There was always the possibility of violence because of the competition”
Of his DJ skills, he said:
“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”
