DJ Smiley to venture into music recording


HE is popularly known for his Usadarooo chant on radio and in the dancehall circles.


DJ Smiley of the dancehall group Legendary Sound, which comprises DJs from Harare’s popular Red Fox Club, was in Mutare last Friday at Soul City Club where they rocked the house.

DJ Smiley, who hosts Power FM’s Dance Ignition Party every Thursday and Friday from 9pm to 12 midnight, left fans clamouring for more just to show why he is among the top DJs in the country’s dancehall circles.

In an interview, Smiley revealed that he would also soon venture into recording music apart from chanting and mixing dancehall party songs.

“In the near future I want to work on more music and record my own dancehall and party rock music. I am just polishing myself before I step things up,” he said.

Smiley said he fell in love with dancehall music after listening to the Jamaican reggae icon, Shabba Ranks, back in the early 1990s. In 2000, he moved to the United Kingdom where he stayed for five years. He was in constant touch with Jamaicans staying there.

When he returned home in 2009, he applied for a job as DJ at Power FM and the powers that be at the station were impressed by his hoarse voice and innovative chants.
DJ Smiley said Zimbabwean dancehall was going places with several artistes like Winky D and Killer T already doing international gigs.

Soul City’s managing director, Tichaona ‘‘DJ Fresh’’ Zhuwau, said the show, which came a month after rising dancehall prodigy Killer T’s show, was also a success. He said it was a sign that Mutare music fans love dancehall and reggae nights.

“This was another great reggae night and the support that DJ Smiley received shows that Mutare loves reggae. As Soul City, we will continue giving the people what they want because at the moment the club is the place to be among many revellers in the city,” said DJ Fresh.

The show also commemorated the 42nd birthday of the joint’s co-director, Obey ‘‘Big Fish’’ Hove.
