DJ Keyzzz , who was nominated in the “Best Female DJ” category of the upcoming Ghana DJ Awards 2016 has turned down her nomination. She revealed this via a tweet from her official twitter account:
@_KEYZUZ which stated:
“ I acknowledge the fact that your outfit is doing its best to appreciate the work of DJs and would like to applaud you for that.
That said, i have never been a fan of the label “Female DJ” because women who DJ are not a novelty and i’d like to be acknowledged based on my skill and not my gender. Guys who DJ are just referred to as DJs and NOT “Male DJs”.
I also realised your award scheme has no category called “Best Male DJ” which validates my point that being female in this field is still treated as a handicap.
In that regard , being one of the “Best Female DJ” nominees does not strike me as a compliment and would like to politely decline the nomination. Thank You“ – DJ Keyzzz
