Introduce yourself and profession to our readers: My name is Amber Jaii, I was born in Detroit, Mi but I've lived in both Atlanta and Detroit growing up. I began Fm radio at the age of 14, and hosted over a 100 events, concerts, fashion shows, panels, etc. I'm currently a co-host on Dj Scream's Hoodrich radio which is broadcast on Sirius Xm's hip hop nation. I hold the position as the bold and uncensored personality which is probably why she was voted 2017 Best Personality in the Southern Entertainment Awards.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest? My favorite events are the events where i can kind of be free spirited with my music. Play a little hip hop, some trap and house, throw an old school mix in there and come right back with the hottest pop songs. I love to see everyone just vibing out and the looks on their faces when I throw in one of their favorite songs they haven’t heard in a while is magical.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit? The advise I would share with anyone chasing their dreams is of course have faith in GOD, but in your faith don’t expect him to do all the work nor expect it to be easy. Also understand most won’t see YOUR vision the way you see it that's why it’s your vision. Have faith you can make it happen and settle for nothing less. If you settle for anything less you will get everything less than what you deserve. If that make sense.
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it: As a female DJ, the challenge I have faced thus far is some people thinking this could be a for a fad or the fame. But I truly love this craft, I wouldn’t choose to do anything else. I knew since I was 15 that I would do radio and DJ. And I've worked hard for years to get here, so this is definitely not for a trend or fame.
What is next for your brand/business in 2017? This fall I’ll be working with a few store brands and also continuing to build this brand of my radio segment “The Great Debate” on 92.3/96.7 The Beat ATL’s newest hiphop fm station.
