I talked to her about her journey as an artiste and her vision for her career in the immediate future:
Me: What was your inspiration into venturing into Dj’ing instead of doing something else…say acting?
Dj Tabz: I’ve always had an interest for music. In fact before I became a Dj I was a musician but that’s not quite where my passion lay so while still in high school I started gaining passion for Dj’ing. I used to admire Dj Mo and Sadic and with time I settled for it.
Me: You’re a big inspiration to young people out there…what are some of the problems that you know they face in terms of career development and how can they leverage online resources for their betterment?
