Hot 100 2011 - Dany Neville
As one of the region’s most renowned radio presenters, music producers and DJs, this UAE-born 29-year-old is rocking the local music scene in more ways than one.
“Ever since I was a kid it has been my dream to have an influential role in the music industry whether it is locally or global. Slowly but surely my main focus is to reach my next target. So far I am blessed and thankful for what I do and hope it continues for as long as I live.”
Dany was one of the few that supported the urban music movement in the 90s with no financial support or labels backing him. He was also the first Arab to present an urban show on national English-speaking radio at the age of 18. “I had a lot of pressure on me. I was fully aware that the representation of the industry weighed heavily on my shoulders.”
Dany notes his best experience to date was performing at Abu Dhabi’s Corniche to over 40,000 people. “That and camping as a kid in the desert.”
