Up-and-coming Ghanaian entertainer, DJ Teddy, has recalled how he left the banking profession to become a disc jockey and master of ceremonies for events.
Without any formal training, DJ Teddy learned the fundamentals of the craft by willfully following and monitoring skilled professionals in the field.
According to him, the people he learned from were not necessarily famous personalities but knew the craft.
Becoming a DJ
Teddy discovered he had a passion for the craft at age 12 but didn't receive formal training from the skilled ''great men'' he followed growing up, he said. He acquired the skills through self-learning and commitment.
