EDM Duo MazexMxtreme, performed at the 7th Big Brother Naija Party held on Saturday, 4th September 2022. The mask-wearing DJs thrilled the housemates and viewers of the show with the most unique performance of the season (so far).
The duo is known for using EDM to push the boundaries of the Afrobeats soundscape – a market that was largely underground.
Curiously, the DJs fused contemporary beats with solid EDM numbers like Avicii’s ‘The Nights’ and other pop numbers, convincing housemates and the rest of the country to pay a little more attention. Before long, the duo had “this DJs” trending on Twitter as a corollary to their breathtaking performance. It was an unforgettable experience.
The DJs held the party down for over an hour, rendering an energetic performance to the excitement of housemates who committed to wrecking the dance floor and doing damage to the party’s bar.
Maze x Mxtreme 🔥🔥😊

Stay ready so you don’t have to start getting ready when the big stages comes calling. That’s what Maze and Mxtreme have done. They’ll be fully booked for December. Internationally too. I can’t wait for the stupid parties they’ll be playing across Africa
