DEADMAU5 VISITS KENYA

He’s a world-famous deejay and producer. And since Kenya is such a lovely country, he has decided to visit too. Judging from his social media accounts, he seems to be having shitloads of fun.

You might also be wondering why the guy has such a strange name. His real name is Joel Zimmerman. According to his father, when Zimmerman was in his early teens, he was chatting with a friend on his computer, which then abruptly shut off.

Zimmerman then became known as the “dead mouse guy” among friends. Joel tried to change his name to “Deadmouse” in an online chat room, but it was too long, so he shortened it to “deadmau5.” When he started a career in deejaying, he stuck to the name.
