Juba Is Shifting the Focus Towards Female DJs In the Global South

DJ Juba talks to us about her Assurance podcast, which returned for a second season earlier this year.

Chinwe Pamela Nnajiuba aka Juba is a Nigerian DJ, currently situated in Berlin, who started her career in 2016 during what she describes as the "wave of afrobeats that connected with the kids of the diaspora."

Her Assurance podcast is a digital audio index centered on reflection and discussions surrounding the state of the music and DJ industry from the female perspective. With each episode presenting a different artist or DJ's experience, the podcast has slowly become an avenue for truth for its guests and listeners.=Juba embarked the project after the release of her first documentary, also titled Assurance, on Boiler Room TV, which featured three Lagos-based DJs: DJ Yin, Sensei Lo, and DJ Ayizan.

The theme for the second season of Juba's podcast is Step Into You. We spoke to her below about the new season.
