Commissioner DJ Wysei’ AKA (Drummer girl)


STANDING OUT AS A FEMALE DJ IS MUCH MORE THAN YOUR PHYSICAL FEATURES

It all began with a simple question that I answered without knowing what the future holds.
“DJing?” my sister asked, “Is that what you want to do?” I told her with full confidence: “I’ve decided to take this thing full time; I love it and I am ready for it”.
She could see I was clearly love-drunk with music and the industry. It was then she took me and bought me my very first DJ player, a memory that has created a beautiful after-taste of passion, drive and brilliance.
My name is Iwuagwu Ebere Pat, known professionally as ‘Commissioner DJ Wysei’ AKA (Drummer girl) from Imo state Nigeria, and my profession has been such that has swung from music (which I wasn’t good at in the first place anyway) to Disc Jockeying. The passion for music actually got initiated during my secondary school years and through my University years as a student of Information Technology. Though I had no Idea I would decide on disk jockeying.

I have had lots of experiences in my career over the and I can make bold to say that coming out strong and noticed in the industry is not just about being a lady with all the attractive features to offer. Such could attract the needed attention but how long can you thrive with that? Professionalism works better when you are well grounded in what you do. You can represent anywhere.
Though to the public, it may seem that the industry is filled with inspiring and prolific women, it remains, like many others, in desperate need to "open" itself up to female professionals in the future.
How did I make it here so far? I make sure that what I play is really accessible to everyone. Because people are looking, I know for a fact. So I make sure whatever I release is good enough or nothing at all. Events, marriage, it doesn't matter - I keep putting in my best out there
Sometimes, my fans get so emotional about my performance that they attempt to make physical contacts or ask for one in the heat of the moment. These are things you just have to deal with.

One great big thing that keeps encouraging was when CNN got a wind of my exclusives and noticed me. Coming on the wings of this was the fact that CNN kept showcasing me along other peer female Deejays. Gaining such visibility, Wazobia Fm Lagos noticed me and I got embraced after featuring in a competition and coming out tops. Then I knew, it’s all worth it and it will keep getting better. So it’s all hard work rather than physical appearance.
My desire is to inspire as many as possible with my craft!
