“You Must Be Versatile To Understand Music” – DJ Coublon

Written by on April 9, 2018

Popular Nigerian Disc Jockey and music producer, Akwuba Charles Ugochukwu, professionally known as DJ Coublon said that for one to be very good in music , one has to be versatile.

Speaking with the Wetin Dey crew on Max fm, DJ Coublon said his multi-skill in music is what has made him stand out amongst other DJs and it reflects well on his music.

The 28-year-old ‘hit-man’ also spoke about the origin of his stage name, Coublon. According to him, during his secondary school days, he was referred to as Charles and there was this other Charles in his school – a senior student – who was widely known as ‘Charlon’ (a name that was only entitled to that particular senior student), so Coublon’s friends began to call him Charlon and after several  pleas against the name, the main Charlon heard about it and spanked him for the name, in that process, the senior mentioned the word ‘Coublon’.

So during the period he was searching for a name to kick start his music career, he got a call from his secondary school friend who called him by the name ‘Coublon’ and he decided to use it.

Born on November 4 1989, he began his interest in music at the age of 7. He is a graduate of Physics with Electronics from Veritas University in Abuja, Nigeria. DJ Coublon began his music career in Onitsha, Anambra State, Southeastern Nigeria. In 2013 he moved to Lagos where he met other artists like Iyanya and Kiss Daniel. He was signed onto Made Men Music Group between September 2014 to 2016.

He is currently signed to Three Guard Records.
