DJ KABILA

“Music has been a therapy for me. I would say the accident saved me and made me a better person. I was young when it happened. It saved my vision and really focused on what really matters to me, which is me. It brought that focus. I didn't focus on the disability that much, but I focused on what I wanted to do and to be a better person,”   

DJ KABILA was involved in a car accident in 1999, he has been in a wheelchair since the accident.
