In an interview, DJ Stavo said:
“It’s an overwhelming feeling to able to do the DJ Takeover on MTV Base.
“It’s something that I always wished to be part of and I am very proud of myself especially getting a positive feedback from MTV Base.
“That was a big deal, I am not only happy about my brand (DJ Stavo) but I am also excited about putting my country on the map, especially on the entertainment side.
“The more we push the better recognition we get.
“We are getting there slowly and I am glad that I am part of that process.”
