World Music guru, fashionista, content creator and radio master blaster, DJ Jimbo, who recently returned from the tour of Europe, has narrated to The Sun how he set the stage on fire wherever he performed.

According to the Effrakata Entertainment’s boss, the inaugural stop on his tour brought him to the enchanting city of love and style, Paris, France where he engaged in rendezvous with esteemed producers, legendary deejays and entertainment aficionados. 

He said: “I met with Zoblazo King, Meiway, a perfect host who shared his career of over 30 years. I also conversed with Eric Trousset, the guardian of Afrobeat maestro, Tony Allen’s legacy, alongside luminaries like Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas and Kwame Yeboah. These exchanges occurred at Comet Records, a hub pulsating with sonic dreams.

“I equally had discussions with Martin Messionner, producer and former manager to the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, late Papa Wemba, King Sunny Ade, Salif Keita and Seun Kuti.

He shared his career experiences and useful tips with me over tea at Musician Café, Paris.”

Venturing beyond the cobblestone streets, DJ Jimbo had conversation with Roforofo Jazz bandleaders and joined forces with directors of French shows and festivals, fanning the flames of fruitful collaborations.

A sojourn through Paris wouldn’t be complete without encounters with artistry in its myriad forms. Amidst conversations with art curators, the iconic deejay intertwined his destiny with that of the international fashion designer from the DRC and Portugal, Velosostyle.
