Lord!! 3 weeks ago I learnt privately that Dj Babus was hit with Covid and was in a terrible state. From not being properly attended to, to panting and struggling to breathe even while on oxygen (even if he was paying ridiculous!). It hurts to know he ain’t make it. RIP Babus.

DJ Babus learned to DJ studying various local and international DJs and by watching hours of tutorial videos online.
Years later, he started DJing professionally when he joined his college radio station in Maryland, USA.
DJ Babus developed his skills working with various artists. After university, he moved to Ohio for a music engineering/production programme and later moved back to Nigeria.
