About Dj Klem

Clement "DJ KLEM" Kponu has been around for a bit. In 1998 as a teenager, the University of Ibadan graduate of Electrical/Electronic Engineering started the journey into music production, and by 2004, while still in university, he'd built himself a reputation as the go-to producer and remixer in Ibadan.

This success saw him moving to Lagos to join the Knighthouse crew as in-house producer and DJ, and later as head of production. In 2009, he made history as the first Nigerian to be accepted to participate in the prestigious annual Red Bull Music Academy which he attended in London in 2010; rubbing mindswith producers and artists from all over the world and learning from Grammy winners such as Mark Ronson, Jazzie B and Steve Reich. He was deeply involved in the debut albums of two of Nigeria's brightest young acts: Mo'Cheddah and Wizkid.

He co-produced Wizkid's breakthrough single "Holla at your Boi" as well as the highly rated "Gidi girl". He also produced Mo'Cheddah's international smash hit "If you want me" which earned her a Channel O award and went on to produce most of her debut album "Franchise Celebrity" which saw her win the MTV Africa Music Award for "Best New Act" in 2010. With production credits for some of Nigeria's finest artists including Wizkid, Mo'Cheddah, Sasha P, Vector, EVA , Ice Prince, Sound Sultan, Sauce Kid (Sinzu), Phenom, Dammy Krane, Yemi Alade and many more, and with two critically celebrated albums (Six8Ten and Afrofunkydiscosoul) to his name, DJ Klem is undoubtedly one of Nigeria's top producers.

His innovative live - remix performances have lit up stages in London, Lagos and Abuja. His "Psyco-Dikeh" gangnam style mashup/remix has become one of the most played remixes on Nigerian radio and he is constantly being sought after as a remixer. His "DJ Klem Presents" series of songs from new unsigned artistes has led to the discovery of a wealth of musical talent in Nigeria. He is currently preparing his third studio album.
