DJ Venum Rising Up The Ranks


DJ Venum

DJ Venum (Aletor Jordan) is a Nigerian DJ and sound engineer who grew up in Lagos.

He is the firstborn of his parents. DJ Venum, who is from Edo state, comes from a musical background. His father is a musician and creative artist who has a residency at Bogobiri in Lagos.

DJ Venum attended Ireti Grammar School in Ikoyi and later Yaba College of Technology. His interest in music started at an early age from watching his dad play at music gigs.

In secondary school, he was a rapper and a confessed studio rat. At the same time, he developed a keen interest in deejaying. As fate would have it, he was transferred from the studio section at Bogobiri to the deejaying section. This is how his DJ career started. He got the name Venum from a friend during his days as a rapper.

DJ Venum has played at several concerts and festivals. He regularly plays at Mainland BlockParty – Nigeria’s biggest youth event. He also has a residency at Bogobori and Roma Lagos.

DJ Venum plans to release an album of mashups soon.

When he is not behind the decks, he likes to play basketball and travel. His favourite genres of music are Afrobeats and House.
