Best wedding dj

DJ Akil was an absolute sensation at our wedding!! He took the time to really understand our musical preferences and his ability to seamlessly blend different genres kept the dance floor alive throughout the night. What impressed us most was his exceptional skill in reading the crowd and adjusting the playlist on the fly to ensure that every guest was on their feet, which made it an unforgettable night filled with joy and non-stop dancing. DJ Akil, you are a musical genius, and we can't thank you enough for making our special day extraordinary :)

Mr Akil D - Amazing DJ

We had some pretty specific requests regarding music for our wedding, and Mr Akil D not only made it happen, but he did it with kindness, style and energy. He kept everyone on the dance floor until they kicked us out of the venue. So much positive energy and really pleasant to deal with. We'd be so excited to go to another event and find out that he is the DJ. Highly recommend, 10/10.

Don't think, just book him NOW! You won't regret it!

What can we say about Akil? Just, wow. My husband and I are fortunate enough to have known DJ Mr. Akil D for many years and even had the chance of working with him in the past for events/business. Never once did we have a complaint about him - or maybe that he was just THAT good? Can that even be a complaint? So it was a no-brainer when it came to deciding who would be our DJ for the biggest and most memorable day of our lives.

Not only is he a multi-faceted DJ who can also host/MC, who knows how to work a room; but he's the utmost professional in his line of work. He made sure the vibe flowed and adjusted/pivoted without a hiccup. Things are constantly changing on the day of, and you want someone who will make sure the flow of the night is something you two shouldn't have to stress about. We didn't. Everyone had a blast, and big thanks goes to Akil for making sure everyone did.

We cannot recommend Akil enough to our friends and guests who are planning a wedding, special event, or milestone. He does it all (WOW!). I know we'll have him again in another special event in the near future! Don't wait, book him now because we know how highly sought out he is!

Highly Recommend!

Akil was AMAZING - first off, he is insanely cool, extremely versatile, and very professional! He DJ'd our wedding the the Eglinton West Gallery on April 23, 2022, where we had a wide range of different age groups and musical tastes, and he was able to cater to them all! Great energy, great vibe, highly recommend!

Phenomenal DJ and MC

I couldn't recommend Akil more. He worked with us to create our ceremony, dinner, and reception playlists with flexibility, adaptability, and natural talent.

He was so fun to work with and he's a true professional, even the event staff were praising his skills. Our guests loved him too, he served as our MC, which he did with ease.

Love, love, love him!

Amazing! Great Value for Money!

DJ Akil was our DJ and MC for the big day. He was easy to work with, responsive, helpful, and professional. As we were having a multicultural wedding, I was worried about finding a DJ who could accommodate many styles of music and Akil did a great job doing so!! He was also a great host and kept the wedding reception flowing as planned. I would definitely recommend him!!

Amazing Service!

Akil has been amazing to work with! Although I am from Toronto, My (now) husband and I decided to have our wedding in Paris, ON on April 29, 2018. Akil was more than willing to travel to our venue, and was able to feed off the crowd easily upon arrival. He helped us budget time during the planning process, and gave suggestions to make our wedding day a complete success! Akil was easy to get along with and was easy to trust to make our wedding day complete. I highly recommend Akil for any event!!

Thank you Akil for everything!

Akil is not just a DJ, he's is an individual who is extremely well versed in all styles and genres of music. After our first meeting we knew he was the one!
He switched seamlessly between popular hits, oldies, Caribbean music and everything in between to please all of our guests without a hiccup.
If you haven't chosen your DJ yet, you need to call him before he gets booked.

Best Wedding DJ

Seriously the best DJ ever! Mr. Akil D was super responsive leading up to the wedding. He took my ideas and vibes for the wedding and just executed them perfectly. Everyone kept telling us it was the best DJ they had ever seen at a wedding. I would absolutely recommend him!

Best DJ Ever!

What can I say about Mr Akil D? The man is a genius. He was our DJ last Saturday and he was incredible. After a short conversation explaining what kind of music we like and were hoping to hear as well as going over our special songs, Mr Akil D out on a flawless performance at our wedding. He was fun, interactive, and personable and even spent some time out in the crowd with us when he could. Even when our party wound down to less than 15 people he stayed and kept us all going right up until the end with the energy of a DJ performing for 1000s of people. Would absolutely recommend him!!
