It is my greatest honour to receive the DJ Mag Top 100 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award. I accepted this award on behalf of Manchester – it’s such a rare occasion when anything like this is awarded North of Watford plus I have a sneaking suspicion that I am the first woman (black woman) to win it which makes it even more special and historic. This is also to prove that you don’t have to be an Instagram influencer with millions of followers to make your mark. If you can make a difference, be fearless and make a difference. This is also for anyone who gets knocked down nine times and stands up ten. I see you. And so do they.
Whoever decided that November was a good month to start thinking about hibernating must have been living in a cave. Oh they were. OK that explains it. We’re not though – and guess what – there is no time like the present to fill your social diary with shenanigans a plenty.
May the 4th, 5th and 6th be with you, as this Bank Holiday, Saturday and Sunday are not for the faint hearted. Join me on the yellow brick disco road for a glittery swish around the Northern Quarter and Deansgate.
February is all about high notes, high spots and high rollers as I work my way around the metropolis sprinkling my disco and house fairy dust on the twinkle toes of all who dare to dance.
