Young disc jock living his dream


December 13, 2017
Malik 'DJ Malik' Campbell, a past student of Jonathan Grant High and first-place winner in the SunCity High School Disc Jock competition showdown, celebrates with his trophies earlier this year.

From an early age, Malik Campbell developed a passion for music. It was further fuelled when he entered and won the SunCity Radio High School Disc Jock Competition earlier this year.

"I entered the competition because I really want to be a professional disc jockey and to go far in the music industry," Malik said.

The 17-year-old, who recently graduated from the Jonathan Grant High School in Spanish Town, is living his dream. Thanks to SunCity 104.9 FM, he began his internship on December 5. The internship will last for eight weeks.

"The internship at SunCity is part of the prize package that I received for placing first in the competition. I want to make the best of this experience, and hopefully, I will be the Sun jock at the radio station," he said.

And since winning the competition in March, Malik said many opportunities have been coming his way.

"I have been playing at a lot of events around the island. Entering the competition has really helped me in a big way. I've done events such as Magnum Wet Extreme and Container Saturdays," he said.

The objective of the SunCity High School Disc Jock Competition is to unearth the talents of students across the island who aspire to enter the music industry. The fifth staging of the competition is set to kick off in January.
