DJ Aries-Akua Afram

On the international front, female celebrity DJs like Alicia Keys (DJ AK 47), Erykah Badu (DJ Lo Down), DJ Spinderella of Salt n Pepper fame, Solange Knowles and several others are gaining strength and recognition in a traditional male dominated work area-Djing?

Spinning and pressing the buttons to rival the countless Ghanaian male DJs in our part of the world is UK based Afro-fusion and Urban Music DJ- Akua Afram (DJ Aries).

Embarking on breaking her newest talent as a disc-jockey, ?DJ Aries? has created the opportunity to further promote music artists, while pleasing her listening audience on the dance floor, live, online and on digital radio.

Having already been featured on Ghana?s engaging talk show ?Be Bold Show?, on national prime-time station eTV, DJ Aries brings insight to working in a competitive music industry as a woman who has over the years loved and followed music.

If you are wondering why Akua Afram has turned to Djing after being an entertainment professional for over 7, this is what she had to say; ?Proud to see the rise of distinctive quality music coming from Africa, but there is the lack of both industry support and global exposure. This is why I became a DJ and why I?m committed to playing and supporting the music, artists and culture from the diaspora on an international scale.?

Anytime you see a woman dropping and mixing those great hits, stretch your neck to check if it is DJ Aries mixing the latest urban sounds, new sounds of Afrobeats, Afro Pop, Afro Soul and Ghana?s distinctive Azonto?

You can catch DJ Aries on UK Radio ?S.O.U.L via every Saturday 12-2pm.
