’A feel good let your guard down atmosphere that makes you wanna dance as if know one is watching’’
This is how DJ StiBO describes herself as a DJ. Never afraid to stick to one genre. Her versatile music selections are her own therapy. Having grown up on her mother’s Reggae sounds such as Bunny Wailer and Beres Hammond with a mix of her sister’s old school 90’s R&B sound with acts such as Dru Hill and Mary J. It all became infused with her own personal taste for Hip Hop and House music. StiBo ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influences. Today this translates to sets that range from House , Hip Hop to reggae and everything in between. Nicola Kagoro aka Dj StiBo is female DJ in the process of turning into a producer.
