But the musically inclined DJ isn’t just well versed on the 1’s and 2’s. Born and bred in Nigeria, DJ ECOOL started playing the drums at the ripe age of 5 which years later he would master. Drum playing led him to beat making which transitioned to DJing which he took on in 2006 first capturing the London scene.
“I’m guaranteed to keep you on the dance floor,” ECOOL boasts. “You’ll hear everything from hip-hop, Afrobeats, pop, R&B, everything. I’ll take you all around the world in one play.”
And indeed he does. ECOOL’s mixtapes have gone on to be co-signed by global brands and artists such as L3 Magazine, Victoria Kimani, etc.
A fan of comedy, ECOOL keeps the jokes going on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook where his fans can connect with him and find out about his latest events. And now, his latest looks. No stranger to fashion, DJ ECOOL recently started blogging his personal style which can be found on his blog, DJECOOL.com.
But whether you think he’s stylish or funny, with DJ ECOOL it always comes back to the music and giving the people what they want. The people want to dance. And he makes sure they do.
After all, DJ ECOOL is the People’s Favorite DJ.
