Ed Sheeran, watch your back: During Harry and Meghan’s visit to a London radio station, one man slipped the prince a business card with his contact info and offered to work as their wedding DJ. Yet another example of canny entrepreneurs hopping onto the royal wedding gravy train. Get your money’s worth, Britons!
That’s via the Daily Mail; watch the smooth move by Jevanni Letford for yourself:
“At the very least, this is a lesson to anyone that you need to #shootyourshot. You’ll always get a “No” if you don’t ask,” he later explained the move on Instagram. In fact, Letford told the Washington Post, he never leaves home without his business cards, because “You never know when an opportunity is going to present itself.”
“I didn’t think anything would come of it I thought I’d take a punt and see what happens,” he told BBC Newsnight.
The Post also got a little insight on his potential setlist:
When asked what songs would be on his royal wedding playlist, Letford said he would play Beyoncé, and Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” to get the party started.
“I’d like to get the entire royal family doing the electric slide and ‘Candy Dance,’ ” Letford said, referencing the famous dance track by funk and soul group Cameo.
“Hailing from London myself, I’d have to represent and play some music from U.K. artists such as Stormzy, Tinie Tempah and Jess Glynne,” he said.
But of course, he told the BBC, “I’d have to sit down with them both first and find out more about the couple so I can tailor the set to them,” adding, “It would be a nice blend of US and UK music, but I’m conscious at the wedding the demographic might not be solely hip hop.”
Honestly, I’d book him.
