Gospel Dj X one is not ashamed to be called a Christian and I am not ashamed of the gospel. As it was said in the book of Romans 1 vs 16 ( For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek)

– Yes. Dj Skamzac has been a good friend. We met on Twitter. Right!! I think he listened to one of my mix tapes Online and the spirit of God led him to find my handle on twitter and told me we should do some stuff together. I said it was okay and we discussed about it, then came out with Dj Communion
