Small in stature but a big heart is the way we would describe Stacey Wanjiru a.k.a DJ Yung K. The local talent originally from Ruiru but plied her trade in Lamu local bars has had a humble rise to fame. She is part of a rare breed of Kenyan female Deejays in country that is quickly making a name for herself in the music industry.
Beginning her deejaying journey in her aunt’s floating club in Lamu, DJ Yung K horned her skills and slowly gaining a name for herself in the local Lamu scene before moving back home to Ruiru. She quickly switched gears to her new environment getting gigs in her small clubs in Ruiru clubs and Thika environ. Her big break though came through the just concluded Smirnoff Battle of the Beats Competition.
Being the only female participant in the competition, expectations from the beginning were quite high as she was meant to carry the mantle for females in the industry. Week on week Stacey validated her position in the competition with energetic and skilful performances surprised most by moving onto the latter stages of the competition. On her journey, she got rave reviews from acclaimed DJ’s like Joe Mfalme, Xclusive and PierraMakena for her skill, energy and professionalism.
Following her stellar performances on the show, she has taken the same exuberance into her new projects as she plans her next big movesin Kenyan deejaying space.
