Capital Xtra DJ Kemi Rodgers has been in a life-long love affair with music. From her early teens, she was tuning in to Zane Lowe’s breathless beats and superstar interviews on Radio 1, and dreaming about being behind the mic herself.
Fast forward a decade and Kemi, now 25, is gracing the airwaves with her own infectious energy. Having cut her teeth on student radio and online community stations during her time studying for a Multimedia Journalism degree, the Eastbourne native can be heard depping Capital Xtra’s popular Early Breakfast and overnight shows.
She has also contributed to the 4Music and Box Plus shows ‘Video Crush’ and ‘YouNews’.
Away from work, Kemi is a fitness fanatic, a vegetarian and – she says – has 13 years’ worth of dancing experience. “Though you wouldn’t know it to look at me on a dancefloor.”
