DJ Electra Interview with DJ Whobedat on the journey of afrobeat.
Faith Uche Stevens, popularly known as DJ Electra started working professionally in 2009 as a disc jockey at Pub One Lounge in Lagos, Nigeria before moving to Bukkahut Lounge also in Lagos, where she has been and is currently the resident DJ for their Saturdays epic night. She also performs at one of Nigeria’s biggest Restaurant/Lounge, Casamia Lagos every Friday and Sunday. Electra was a resident DJ for Shades Lounge in Victoria Island where she performed “Variety Night with DJ Electra” every Wednesday and she has also performed at the Thailand Festival Organised by Orchid House Restaurant. She was an ambassador for Vandrezzer Football Club and DreamWorks Global Logistics Limited.
It is inspiring and admirable to learn about DJ Electra’s charitable work and her efforts to create awareness about Photosensitive Epilepsy, a condition she successfully understood and controlled the signs and triggers since she was 18 years. Rather than dwelling on self-pity when clients chose not to work with her upon learning about her health condition, she channeled her experiences into something positive by creating awareness about epilepsy and its different forms, she is helping to educate people and reduce the stigma surrounding the condition. Her efforts may also inspire others who are living with epilepsy to pursue their passions and make a difference in their communities.The maiden epilepsy awareness charity event was held at the women’s correctional facility Kirikiri on International Epilepsy Day February 13th.
Electra has her travel and health insurance set for booking outside the country.
DJ Electra hopes to officially launch her music career soon where she plans to sponsor people struggling with epilepsy with her royalties. Although she couldn’t further her education as a result of the condition, she has, however, been able to live her life impacting lives and inspiring people through her works.
