#DivasInvasion is an annual event that seeks to promote ladies in Ghana’s
Creative Arts/Entertainment industry. The event offers the platform for ladies
to showcase their talents and this serves as a confidence boost to these
talented ladies. The one night event sees performances from lady DJs, Artistes,
MCs, Commedians and more. This event is the flagship event under MJ Empire
which is run by one of the pioneers of female DJs; DJ MJ.
Speaking to DJ MJabout what birth the idea for Divas Invasion she said that, for
her coming up in the industry she faced a lot of challenges and still encounters
some to this day but what really struck her was the fact that it was really hard
to see fellow women doing what she does (disc jockey). So she initially started
an event called “Take Over” in 2012 to help discover other female DJs in the
industry. She said “through Take Over we discovered DJs like DJJay Jay, DJ
Ann, DJ Mitchy, DJ Amaa now Amaarae who is a beautifulsoulfulsinger now
and many more female DJs.”
“Take Over” then grew to have a broader vision in order to also involve other
female acts and not just limited to female DJs hence the change of name to
Divas Invasion in 2015. DJ MJmade it known that even though Divas Invasion
started a long time ago she only started having major success with the event
two years ago when she hosted an edition in Ho, Volta Region and Kikibees,
East Legon in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
DJ MJreiterated that “Divas Invasion like the name suggests is to bring all the
female acts from their shells or hiding places to invade the male dominated
sides of entertainment confidently with no apologies. This is to give the ladies
and women with vision and style the confidence they need on stage and
everywhere they go.” This is because women in general are rare in the
entertainment industry and very few are really striving to remain relevant in
this very tough industry hence the need for events like this to help promote
and showcase their talents and crafts.
This year marks the 3rd Third Edition of Divas Invasion and it promises to be
electrifying!Under the theme “We Don’t Set Bars”; as in “we want to tell the
ladies that you don’t have to give yourself bars or limits in life. Once there’s
passion for what you do you’re are limitless. As women a lot of factors come in play that prevents us from moving to the highest levels but regardless of those
challenges, we as women need to keep moving and breaking those bars, limits
and status quo society has ‘set for us’
,”- DJ MJsaid.
