The BBC dictionary defines a STYLIST as "A designer or consultant in a field subject to changes in style, hairdressing and clothing" for young Somto Unamba all this describes his person as a teen his more like a consultant in the fashion world knowing all the latest and trending designs, somoto always looking sharp and well groomed Everytime he steps out......... But that's not the reason his on our list of Abuja rich Teenagers! Read on and you who get to know what he does.
Somto also called DjX by his friends not because the DJ matches with the X, but because he's actually a DJ. Being a DJ in Abuja is actually a big deal, for Abuja is more like a commercial city and most times there's always an event, a launch of a product,seminars and during the weekend the parks are jammed with weddings and others social events and in between all this you have to have a DJ for the speakers and the microphone if not even for the music. making DJ's very sort after in the society today, and their job is not seasonal like others for come rain come sunshine, wet season or dry season DJ's are always in high demand.
DjX is one teen Dj we are proud of there might be others but he stands out from his unique packaging, having his official DJ and stylist account on social media to his modern day equipment he uses to work. He's someone who knows all the genres of music and combines them perfectly. Among his achievements include being honored at the last NTCA for the best teen DJ which shifted his career to another level.
