DJ Joe’s journey began at Club Dimples in Meru.

He would sit behind the booth and observe what the DJs were doing. That is how how he got the skills.

Then when he came to Nairobi, he started hanging out with DJ Krowbar who later introduced him to Kevin Mulei.

“That was way back before Mo Sound even existed. That was all the start I needed. The rest is a journey of seeking opportunities and working very hard,” Mfalme said in a past interview.

In 2021, Radio Africa Group-owned Homeboyz Radio terminated his services alongside two others after a victim-shaming scandal during their breakfast show dubbed the ‘Lift Off’.
