DJ WilSAF, whose real name is Wilmot Faulkner, found he had a love for music when he was just nine years old and a member of the Wesley Methodist Church of Sierra Leone choir. In 1996, he got a job as a radio broadcaster and DJ at the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Service now SLBC. Seven years later, he began his job at SKYY Radio 106.6 FM.
In this position, he worked as a Presenter/DJ, setting up and conducting interviews and live talk shows. He would promote Sierra Leone’s musical talents and helped editors with their daily programs. DJ WilSAF, wanting to branch out further in the musical scene, began his entrepreneurial career.
He is the CEO and founder of SELAKIFAU Limited now trading as 5iveGem Inc. and owns FusionSound Radio where he also works as a live radio host on Monday and Friday nights. And, if he wasn’t busy enough, he also works as a web consultant and DJs at wedding receptions and other events.
According to DJ WilSAF, there were several DJs that inspired him to go into music – DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Kool Herc, Jam-Master Jay, DJ Nu-Mark, etc.
When he’s not working, the multi-talented artist loves to spend time or go on vacations with his family and friends – with one location he’d love to visit most of all is Brazil (mainly due to the Amazon River). DJ WilSAF also likes to just relax watching basketball, football or tennis matches. He’s an avid fan of Arsenal FC and the Boston Celtics.
