Superstar DJ Jimmy Jatt started the trend of featuring artistes and later making an album out of it.
One of his hit tracks was “Stylee” featuring 2face, Mode 9 and Elajoe.
Many other DJs have since taken the direction.
Chocolate City Female jockey, DJ Lambo explained her reason for joining the trend, saying:
“It is not really about following any trend. I am a recording and performing DJ, which means that I am at liberty to release my own songs, even though I don’t sing in it. I’m not an artiste but I know a lot about music and DJs are a very integral part of the hip hop culture. It is also a good way of keeping our image in the consciousness of the public.”
Regarding her song featuring Seyi Shay, Cynthia Morgan and Eva, she said:
“I decided to collaborate with the girls because I felt they would be able to bring out the objective I wanted in the song and they actually delivered. I still have plans to release other songs and I’ll do that when the time is ripe.”
