DJ LexxMontanah

Welcome to the world of a young man who goes by the name “Dj Lexx Montanah”.  Popularly known as the SuperstarDj because of how he carries himself and for his taste and way of entertaining people in clubs and events all over. He is arguably the most passionate and Gifted Dj I have ever met locally with an exceptionally unmatched taste in good music.

He is regarded as a mentor to some up and coming Djs whom he has taught the dj’ing craft, he chooses to remain silent for its a personal mission that he holds dear.

He loves to play PlayStation during his free time, chill with friends and talk about random stuff.

He appreciates the fact that he isn’t allergic to any food though not a fan of matoke.  Lexx Montanah attends the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) for Spiritual nourishment and enrichment and also to interact with other believers.

BACKGROUND

Dj Lexx Montanah was born in Nairobi in 1992 and from an early age his mother exposed him to music as a lifestyle, he used to listen to the likes E-sir, Nameless and Sisqo and more. By the time he joined high school at Kahuho Uhuru he signed up with the music club as a result. Lexx went ahead and represented his school at the provincial level in the music festivals.

After completing high school, Lexx passed his secondary examinations looking forward to joining university. But since he is from a single parent and his mother couldn’t afford paying school fees for him and 2 of his brothers, Lexx decided to use his passion in music and make ends meet by working on his dream of Dj’ing.

In 2011 right after high school Lexx used to sell books for primary boarding schools for students during the visiting days in most schools but because his employer had unfavorable terms he had to quit and look for another alternative way of acquiring income and saving it for his Dj’ing school fees.

He later got a job at Tamasha Hurlingham as a glass cleaner/washer where he reported on Friday and left on Monday whereby he earned sh 800. He did that for a couple of months until he had enough funds to pay one of his friends who had a Dj’ing machine and teach him the basics of Dj’ing.

He later attended a Dj’ing school and gained more skills in the craft. Lexx first opportunity to show his art in Dj’ing was when he started playing as a resident Dj at Club Veranda located along Tom Mboya Street. He then was informed of auditions at Club Tamasha and since Lexx embraces challenges he decided to give it a go on the auditions.

Despite battling fierce competition, he won and went on to be the official resident Dj for the Buffet Park ltd where he was Dj’ing at Tamasha Hurlingham, Tamasha Nairobi West and Tamasha Thika. This exposed him to every kind of music crowd in his work during the period he was Dj’ing with Tamasha.

In 2013 he undertook his biggest event as a Dj, this was later on which was the Henry Wanyoike/Safaricom future for hope run which was held in Kikuyu town, Kiambu County. He entertained more than 1500 people which served as a very big plus and motivation to his young career as a Dj.

Later on that year Lexx Montanah decided it was time to seek new challenges in his Dj career since he had amassed experience and exposure that would enable him handle any crowd. So he parted ways with Buffet Park Ltd on good terms.

This electrifying performer always keeps the crowd going. Commonly referred to many as the Superstar DJ due to his skill and artistry on the decks. Countless times have fellow Djs refused to play after his sessions because of how he blends his music and his interaction with the crowd.

Lexx comes from my first name Alex, Montanah means someone who is always on the grind.  As very hardworking person, one who takes his work seriously and with my kind of background am trying to run away poverty as fast as possible which is not a good thing, and also trying to secure a better future and life for my kids and wife eventually.
