Ivy Awino, also known as DJ Poizon Ivy, is making great strides for Kenya.

According to senior NBA writer for ESPN Marc J Spears, she recently became the official music and sound coordinator at the Basketball Africa League.

“Congratulations to @dallasmavs and former @dallaswings @poiZonivytheDJ who is the official music and sound coordinator at the @theBAL. She is a native of Nairobi, Kenya and has spun at three NBA All-Star weekends,” wrote Spears.

Responding to his tweet, the first-ever female DJ for the Dallas Mavericks wrote on Twitter saying, “I’m coming home!”

???????? I’m coming home!

“After I relocated to Dallas after college, I started working with the WNBA team and a friend advised that I ‘shoot my shot’ with the Mavs, who at the time had the position filled. A few months after my inquiry, the position became available and I got the call,” she said during an interview.

In October 2019, Ivy walked away with the best DJ in East Africa award at the Afrika Muzik Magazine Awards held in Texas, USA, an addition to her 2017 Emmy for her Faith and Fate biography courtesy of Fox journalist Heather Hays.
