Dj MixmasterBrown. A Lagos born and bred dj, hails from Cross River & Delta States. A Calabarboy ambassador. Spent some time in Jos, Plateau State. Where he bagged his B.Sc in Political Science.
His love for music was discovered while in high school (Aguda Grammar school). Brown was only 16 years old when he started spinning records at neighborhood high schools with his family’s music equipment. His sister was so supportive of his skills and talent that she drove to the store to buy him his very first mixer (Gemini Pmx). Losing his dad in 1988 only made him work hard to be a better person.
By the time he left high school, in 1989, he was emplyed as the pioneer DJ for the Nation’s number one record store (Tower Records and Tapes, Aromire Street, Ikeja. Lagos) owned by two (2) brothers-DJ Mannix and Collins Akpapunam. Both his mentors till date.
While he was the head boy at Tower Records and Tapes, he mastered the secret and art of mixing.
He helped to recruit deejays for most night clubs in the country. It was through these shows that he built a reputation for mixing, which had him spinning with Djs Like Howie T, Grandmaster Greg e.t.c.

Due to his passion, smooth and “hyped calmness” attitude towards the art of deejaying, so many people came up to him requesting to be showed and taught the secret. He made deejaying so much fun in the eyes of all. Still does.
His dedication and contribution to DJing paid off when he was named the anchor deejay for the 50 Cent/G unit Concert and as one of the deejays for the Akon Concert, he was also summoned to duty for the Jarule and Kelvin Lyttle concerts.
