Born Enock Mukiibi, DJ Mavious aka Omwana w’eka is an International DJ and a versatile musician who has ventured into dancehall, reggae, and Urban RnB. Starting as a deejay, Covid was a turning point for Mukiibi as he decided to venture into something that he is loves.
He started deejaying in high school but used to sing as well. He later decided to concentrate on his deejaying career which was later halted by Covid 19. “It was going on well for me as a DJ but when Covid came and entertainment was put on hold, I knew I couldn’t survive well and that is when I knew the time was right to start being serious with making music during the COVID-19 global lockdown in 2020,” he said.
The US-based artiste is now popularly known for songs such as ‘Bantuma’, ‘Kakuba’, and ‘Boss’ among other others. He has also been on a couple of musical tours with artistes like Eddy Kenzo, French Montana, and DJ 6pac among others. DJ Mavious says he couldn’t be happier with what music has offered him and is now planning on releasing more music.
Asked whether he has plans of going back to his first love of deejaying, he said only the future will tell. Born on 6th June 1991 in Namasuba, Kampala, DJ Mavious moved to the United States of America at the age of 14.
