Dajiow, the popstar formally known as David Jordan, came up in the music industry at the same era as Amy Winehouse (they were friends, and signed by the same management company).
That also included a ton of drugs, a string of hit songs (Sun Goes Down) and access to pretty much anything Dajiow wanted. As he says "they kept me just high enough."
After the label dropped him, he spiralled. In the downward turn, he found clarity and a sense of spirituality he hadn't had before.
He picked himself up, and for the last four years, he's starred in the West End of London in a show called "Thriller." A thrilling journey that he shares quite candidly with me.
From being puppetered to not being able to deliver on the hits, Dajiow is one of the only artists I've heard speak so honestly about the inside of the music business.
