    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!

    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!

    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.

    Mr Akil D's reply:

    Thank you very much! You were wonderful to work with. Congrats once again on your new journey.

    Cheers!

    Mr. Akil D aka Mr. Perfect

    We cannot say enough great things about Akil. His levels of professionalism and flexibility are unmatched. We had a bit of a hiccup with another vendor which would be playing live music during the ceremony and when Akil heard he was ready to jump in last minute to fill in. He was on site hours prior to the start of the events making sure everything was perfect, some DJ鈥檚 will show up 10 minutes prior but not Akil, treats every wedding like his own and only accepts perfection.

    Akil was able to go with the flow and make changes with ease, if it was speeding up timing of sequence of events or noticing the crowd not responding well with certain music options, he was able to keep the party going to the very end.

    Akil treats every wedding as if it was his own, to ensure everything you imagine comes true and make it as stress-free as possible. We couldn鈥檛 be happier with our choice to go with Akil as our DJ, if we would rate him higher than 5/5 we definitely would.

    Mr Akil D's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words. I had a great time working with you. From the first meeting, to the final day. It means a lot to know that I helped to make the day perfect.

    Amazing jams for my wedding night.

    Akil rocked the crowd at my wedding reception. He came in early and gave himself extra time to set up.

    He was very easy to communicate with because he was very responsive from the beginning till the end.

    He brought the crowd to their feet after the dinner and when the dance floor opened! He also MC the bouquet toss!! Would recommend to anyway who wants a upbeat wedding DJ!

    Wedding DJ

    Throughout my whole wedding I felt like I was having an out of body experience, so I can't remember much, but what I do remember was how many of my guests came up to me during and after the wedding telling me how great my Deejay was. My wedding was catering to a Caribbean and Egyptian crowd (strange, I know, lol) and Akil was able to mix and blend the tunes seamlessly. I had an extensive list of songs that I wanted played and tbh, I'm not sure my list even mattered lol. The smooth transition from one song to the next made me feel as if I was in a fairytale. Loved every moment of it. Will definitely be booking Akil in the future!!!

    Absolute Recommend!!

    We hired Akil thorugh Soul Power to do our wedding "party" at a bar in Parkdale. He was reliable and totally understood the vibe we were going for without us having to make any song list. During the night if there was ever a lull, Akil got the party started again made sure the dance floor was bumping. We would recommend Akil 100 times over - he is worth every penny!!!!
