By Lee Osbourne

As we come close to the end of 2016, we bring you some of the top disc jockeys that have rocked Ugandans this year.

This year has seen several deejays up their game; some DJs collaborated with artistes on songs, others did mix-tapes and some even teamed up to form deejay-ing duos.

As we all have our favorite playlist and different tastes of music, even when it comes to Djs, each person has one or two Djs that they fancy most.  Here is a list of my top 10 Ugandan deejays that have rocked this year.

1. DJ Roja and DJ Slick Stuart

They are the first deejay-ing duo in Uganda. 2016 saw them hit new milestones. The duo was named Africa’s finest Djs in the prestigious Nigerian Entertainment awards beating other professional Djs on the continent. They were also voted the Wickedest Djs at the 2016 Buzz Teeniez Awards.

These two young DJs also held a successful 3rd edition of their annual Smirnoff mix-tape party in September at Laftaz Swimming pool.
