He is one third of iconic crew Major Lazer.
Diplo is a name synonymous to big hits and this beat maestro recently opened up about a gig he and fellow Major Lazer crew members had to host in Lagos Nigeria.
As reported on MTV Base, Diplo’s recent interview on GQ magazine has him detailing an outdoor festival in Lagos where the sound reportedly blew during a thunderstorm forcing him to banter with the crowd for a good hour while they attempted to kickstart the sound again.
The deejay and producer who’ has pretty much gigged in most of the world, described that gig as one of the hardest yet, recalling explaining to Walshy fire (fellow Major Lazer member) that Nigeria is where you live for die as a deejay, likening it to a ‘deejay Olympics’.
Diplo was recently starred as a male video vixen in the now viral video to Charlie XCX’s ‘Boys’ alongside industry heavy weights Charlie Push, Ty Dollar $ign, Wiz Khalifa, Mark Ronson among others.
