He is that DJ that spins all

In this musical edition we are featuring multiple award-winning DJ Spinall(Sodamola Oluseye Desmond ), one of the main forces pushing afrobeats forward from behind the decks .
Earlier this year, Spinall released the excellent album Ten, which has birthed many dance floor hits and which features top-tier collaborations with Mr Eazi, Ice Prince, Sarkodie, Patoranking and more. He’s also recently dropped the massive “Olowo,” alongside Davido and Wande Coal.
And as he says in the interview” I really, really want to take the music around the world, not just in Africa. I want to take the music to Asia; I want to take the music to places that we have Africans at. We have Africans almost in every part of the world.Also, beyond selling my music to Africa, or introducing Africans to the music, I want to introduce the world itself to the music. I’m looking forward to EDM sessions, and sessions in other genres.Basically, I want to push African music but not leave behind the culture. Because I feel like the culture is what lead to the music.”
Dj Spinall is someone who really, really loves music, and he listens to everything. Is a big fan of hip-hop and he really loves R&B. he loves afrobeats, he loves afropop. He loves fuji music, he loves reggae, he loves dancehall. So basically, he is that DJ that spins all. That’s how we came about the name DJ Spinall.

Consciousness is not only power of awareness of self and things, it is or has also adynamic and creative energy .It can determine its own reactions or abstain from reactions; it can not only answer to forces, but create or put out from itself forces. Consciousness is Chit but also Chit Shakti.
