University student wins battle of DJs
© BINDURA club spinner DJ Vlaad won the ‘‘Battle of DJs’’ contest recently held at Club 263 where he fought off 19 other contestants.
For winning the “battle” the Bindura University student walked away with US150 cash.
Club 263 Bindura event organiser Mr abra 263 aka DJ Nash said the DJ battle had a massive turnout and 20 DJs came through. “These are the likes of DJ Jassy J, Tanya Strings, Waddis, Blaver, Madd Flavour, Selector Scoofy, Atn and Master Choo among others.
“DJ Vlaad was the favourite of many as he showcased amazing juggling skills. As for the criteria we were looking at mixing, crowd response, mic usage when communicating with the crowd as well as not repeating songs played earlier.”
DJ Vlaad whose real name is Valentine Nyarende is 24 years old and lives in Manhenga, Bindura. “Currently I’m at Bindura University doing a degree in accounting. I started to do this job in 2017 at Paradise Night Club in Manhenga when I failed to join the army. By that time I had finished my ‘‘A’’ Levels.
