    He charges between £300 and £450, depending on the hours he is playing for. Im getting him for £300 as i will also be having a live performer, so he wont be DJ continiously.

    thx I've sent him an email. On the subject of live performers....who are you using....and any idea where I can get contact details of live performers...thx

    Im using Mr Solek, my cousin knows him, so that was a pretty easy contact. Who are you interested in? my cousin might be able to get the contact for you. He is a bit of a social animal and parties within the Nigerian entertainment circle.

    I'm not sure really I havent decided.....it all depends on what their hire charges are like.....for about 2hrs.... do you know how much the charges start from...
  • SBHSALONSBHSALON Posts: 43
    No idea on what their charges are like. I personally think everyone's price is so different. if i had an idea of what sort of live bands you wanted I could ask around. A friend of mine had two Fugi musicians at her wedding and they were good, they were identical twins too, so the entertainment was nice, but they only sang fugi and i think their starting price was £400. Someone like Olu Maintain, is bout £700, starting price. So again it depends on what you want. Gospel live musician, who play gospel fugi and gospel afro beats, start at about £500.

    Hi SBHSalon, I just got a quote of DJ 1st nature and his quote was very reasonable indeed....I told him you recommended him .....I might be booking him for my wedding...

    1 question though, how would you rate his music...would you say its more for young adults...as my partner and I are fairly young....24/26.........or is he more for the older crowd.........and also do you know roughly how old he is...that will also determine the kind of music he plays...thx so much for your help...

    Hi Tols,



    I think he is 25, he told me he was starting his masters in September after taking a year to focuse on full time DJing, following his degree. The couple who's wedding i met him at were also in their mid twenties and i guess what impressed me was how he was able to get everyone dancing together. The bride was White British and the Groom Nigerian British, but he played a good mix of old school classics, afro beats and even gospel, adding his own twist to it. So i was pretty impressed. He did say he played at a lot of Nigerian Birthday bashes for age ranges of 18-60th birthdays.



    I guess you'll need to sit with him and tell him what you want. I have an appointment to catch up with him 2 months be4 my wedding, to discuss what i want, i.e music to introduce us at the reception for the first time as we dance in, actual first dance music etc So i think you should do the same no matter who you book.



    The link for FeyiSara, was that the one you were looking for?
