A fast-rising Bariga-based Disk Jockey (DJ), Irere Victor Oaikhena, popularly known as DJ Therapy, has bagged a master’s degree in Social Psychology from the University of Lagos.
Victor already bagged a BSc in Psychology from the same institution while he was also learning how to be a Disk Jockey.
Speaking with Legit.ng regional reporter, Adeoye Adewunmi, on the rationale behind the attainment of this academic height despite being a Disk Jockey, he said that his love for education has been there over time with the intent of raising the bar of education higher to the level of PhD.
Irere said he braced himself up to achieve this since his work is usually during the weekend, hence, decided to use the weekdays productively by enrolling for his master’s degree.
The young man noted the importance of his course at the master’s level (Social Psychology) in relation to his Disk Jockey venture.
He said it is very valuable to have the knowledge of the people’s behaviour during social activities in order to know the right songs to play at the right time.
Irere, therefore, expressed gratitude to his lecturers, advisers and friends who encouraged him during his course of study.
“I just feel education is in me and it is something that had been there right from while I was in secondary school to do a B.sc, M.sc and also go for a PhD programme.
“Education has always been something I hoped for. I felt that I am a DJ and my work are usually during the weekend. So, I thought I could use my weekdays meaningfully by enrolling for a Master’s Degree.
“The Impact of my course of study at Master’s Degree cannot be taken for granted in my Disk Jockey business because you need to understand people’s behaviour during social activities in order to play the right songs at the right time.”
Speaking on how he came about his stage name, Victor said that the frequency of the occurrence of the word “therapy” in all his Psychology textbooks motivated him to adopt the name.
“Getting a Dj name was so hard for me back then. People started giving different suggestions as to a stage name, some advised I use my name ‘djVikky’.
“As a student of psychology at Unilag ‘Therapy’ was one word I come across at almost every psychology class or Textbook!!!
“Through extensive reading/research I got to know that Therapy originated from a Greek word ‘therapia’ and it literally means healing or curing someone by several means and to my greatest surprise music was also a way of making someone’s life better.”
