This week our #WCW is on local Sydney DJ, radio host and blogger, FlexMami. Real name Lillian Ahenkan, FlexMami is still new on the scene but has already landed some pretty big gigs.
FlexMami is part of the Sydney based event and label, Sidechains. Lil worked her way from door girl, to bookings, to eventually DJ’ing the parties in just a matter of months. She has now been playing regular gigs in the Sydney circuit for about a year now.
At just 22 years old, Lillian has already made a name for herself in Sydney and in the online community. In a time where being a “slashy” is almost necessary, FlexMami is the queen.
As well as being a DJ, FlexMami co-hosts Sidechains radio on FBi Click every week with Sidechains CEO, Denzel Sterling. She also runs a fashion and lifestyle blog that has seen her interviewed by Missguided, Catalogue Magazine, Hot Chicks With Big Brains and Izms Magazine.
FlexMami is a super versatile DJ, she has regular gigs at R&B nights, had a daytime residency playing house, plays forward thinking club music at Sidechains, plays a grime, rap and r&b party celebrating Girls and just got a residency which will see her playing Freda’s every Wednesday night.
It is due to this versatility and her reach with online followers that has seen Lillian play some big scale support slots. She recently was one of the support acts for Novelist’s show at The Oxford Art Factory and last week played Mixmag’s ‘The Lab Sydney’, opening for rising Brisbane producer, Feki.
Anyone who has ever encounted Lil either online or in real life can see that this girl exudes positive energy. She is an advocate for self-love and is everyone’s hype girl. She is the perfect example of believing she can achieve something and working hard until she does.
With plenty more shows up her sleeve you have every opportunity to see FlexMami DJ in a club near you soon. Tonight she hits up Bondi playing Sosueme alongside an all girl line up before headliners, GL. She also has been working on putting out a track so make sure you stay in the loop with all things FlexMami below.
