When it comes to the wheels of steel, Derin Phillips, popularly known as DJ Caise, is a force to be reckoned with. Being the Disc Jockey of Chocolate City, Beat FM and Channel O, the young man is certainly doing well for himself.
I am living the life of my dreams. Chocolate City is one of the biggest labels in Africa at the moment. For Beat FM, I’m in the zone every Friday night and my people love me. Channel O also gets me in touch with a wider African audience. I’m blessed, and I’m grateful for the love.
Sharing tips on how to stay on top of the game, DJ Caise told Saturday Beats that as a DJ, he needs to understand his body structure.
As a DJ, you have to make a conscious effort to understand your body and work well with it. When on the job, you learn how to pace yourself and rest later. We are all human! I’m healthy, the job hasn’t affected my health
He adds that contrary to popular belief that DJs hardly have time for themselves, it is all about the individual. Phillips says his work is all he has time for.
If you wait for time, it will never get to you. You have to seize the time to have a shot at greatness. Time for myself is my work, I’m at it every day
Strangely, the party says he is single but not searching as he is preoccupied with work. He states that while he was in a relationship, he never cheated.
Disc Jockeying in Nigeria is a booming business that puts three square meals on his table and he is thankful to God for that. Unknown to his fans, Caise is a jack of many trades.
DJ in Nigeria is enjoying a sudden boom. Things could be better but I have no reason to complain. I’m working on so many things now. I just released three mixtapes-Afrobeat, Sounds of Ghana and sounds of South Africa. I’m also working on my album at the moment. Asides that, watch out for big collaborations from March and the video for MI’s Number 1 featuring Waje. I am also one of the primary actors in ‘The Island’ a new TV series
