DJ Nikka T has always had a strong affiliation to reggae music and the culture surrounding it. Born January 29, 1985 to two loving and amazing parents, Nikka T has been a gift and a treasure. He was immediately embraced by his grandparents and friends as a sweet and affectionate, soul filled kid, with an urgency to see, feel, and experience life from the onset. From skipping high school and entering junior college early, to traveling in Jamaica, France, Amsterdam, India, Hawaii, and all over the US, Nikka T has spread his wisdom and love for music at an excelled pace. His pursuit in the music industry is moving rapidly as well with his first mix tape release “So Addictive Vol. 1” and his weekly DJ sets improving every time. The music can be described as a mixture between New Roots, otherwise known as Culture, Dancehall Reggae, and Hip-Hop. His entrepreneurial spirit and constant perfectionism will get DJ Nikka T wherever he wants to be in life, whether it is DJing at the local club or producing hit mix tapes.
