We’re excited to announce that the winner of our MoS DJ Academy course competition is Koko Owusu!
Koko’s 18 years old and lives in London. She’ll be coming along to the Ministry of Sound DJ Academy on 31 August to learn skills and tips from some top-notch Ministry of Sound DJs. Well done Koko!
Here’s her winning comment:
Probably not reaaaally MoS style but NONETHELESS it would have to be
Sun Is Shining by Bob Marley (and do a mashup with either Jamie XX – Beat For/Far Nearer or could simply be the Bob Sinclair remix).
The song is ALL about sharing positivity, enjoying ourselves and living and loving life to the fullest no matter what. I think young volunteers would appreciate the message and most importantly love rocking out to this tune!
Why it was a winner…
We loved the song she chose to dedicate to young volunteers but more importantly, we loved the reasoning behind her song choice.
We too believed that young volunteers would appreciate the message of positivity behind this Bob Marley hit – and most importantly love rocking out to it!
Ministry of Sound DJ academy were particularly impressed with her mash up/remix idea for Sun Is Shining!
