Popular Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode aka “DO 2d TUN” is known as one of the most popular celebrities in the Nigerian entertainment world. He is a dancer/choreographer, voice-over artiste, sound engineer, master of ceremonies(MC), Public Speaker and most of all a broadcaster who is enviable to his peers. He has come to find out the dignity of hard work, the reward of perseverance and satisfaction of success in his chosen endeavours.
Dotun was born in 1984 in Lagos State to a mother who’s a nurse and a father who’s a civil engineer. His passion for the arts began when he fell in love with the flawlessly supreme dance moves of the King of Pop Michael Jackson and the wild stage antics of soul brother number 1, James Brown. He craved to move like these two entertainers and this led him to begin dancing as part of the group called IGNITE just after he passed out from highschool. His skills as a dancer eventually landed him in music videos for such A-list artists such as D’Banj and DJ Zeez.
Dotun’s drive for all things entertainment and media steered his mind towards Mass Communication when it was time to choose a course at the university.
