DJ Van, one of Morocco’s top music producers whose hot song “Enty” (You) was recently nominated for an MTV music award, sat down for a one-one-one interview with Al Arabiya News’ Simo Benbachir.

DJ Van tells Al Arabiya News about his early days of “mixing hip-hop music” and his journey toward becoming the “godfather of the Moroccan touch.”

“I’m trying to help the younger generation to do quality music and I put traditional Moroccan music in my modern music,” DJ Van said.

“The young rappers call me dad because I care about them and help them,” he added.

Commenting on the MTV Awards nomination, DJ Van said: “I’m happy, we are all happy and proud because we put Moroccan music in MTV awards, it was all a dream before now it’s happening.”
