DJ Ayo O

Born in NY Ayo’s (eye-oh) family moved to MN when he was 2 years old. He has always been into music. In high school he would trade mix CD’s with friends and started DJing when he was 20 years old. Ayo has love for all forms of music but is most drawn to rap.  This might be because the very first concert he attended had a new unheard of artist by the name Chance the Rapper. He was hooked!  Ayo is an experienced DJ and started DJing for Instant Request 6 years ago. 

Outside of DJing, Ayo likes watching the MN Timberwolves, watching movies, and viewing social media.  A unique fact about him, he is currently in a long distance relationship with someone in Nigeria.  He can also speak Yoruba, which is a language of Nigeria. 

We were really impressed with Ayo! He did a great job leading up to the wedding and the entire night at the reception! The dance floor was packed the whole night, which we loved. We had multiple people come up to us to tell us how much they loved the DJ. Before the wedding, he confirmed the plan over the phone and followed up with any outstanding questions. Ayo was very professional in balancing any requests from our guests which didn’t perfectly align with what the groom and I had in mind. We were a little concerned when initially booking with Instant Request since we did not have a DJ assigned until 3 weeks in advance of our wedding but we were very happy with the online planning tool and our DJ!                                                                                                 

DJ Ayo was our DJ.  He provided music for our ceremony and reception. I was a little nervous after our first phone call (it seemed as if he had perhaps forgotten about it!) but, all my worries melted away as the wedding day progressed. He arrived early for set-up and was able to confirm processional details with us for our ceremony. He also kept pretty well to the schedule we set. During our planning phone call, we had told DJ Ayo that we essentially wanted him to do his thing and give us a dance party to keep the dance floor full and that he was more than welcome to take song requests. He delivered. Our guests were out on the dance floor all night dancing away. And the few times that I requested that he play a few slower songs for the older crowd, those songs were the next in the queue. We were so very pleased with the service provided. Us and our guests were having so much fun out on the dance floor that we completely passed on the dollar dance and bouquet toss. We had planned on doing them.  DJ Ayo actually came up and reminded us about them and  we just didn’t want to stop or break up the party for those events. No one seemed to miss them! Thank you so much DJ Ayo! You helped make our wedding day absolutely wonderful!

We had Ayo as our DJ at our wedding reception in September. He was absolutely fantastic! He really took all of our ideas and requests and put his own spin on them. We loved how he kept in touch with us throughout the night to keep the party on track, and there was never a moment where there weren’t people on the dance floor. He did a great job of incorporating all the elements you need into a dance, interspersing slow songs into the fast sets at just the right time. I loved working with the online planner that instant request uses before the big day, it really helped to get ideas going and to organize all of the pieces of our reception. We would highly recommend this service to anyone else in the Twin Cities area!
