Headlines 04/06/2018

We're proud to share that our very own DJ Sir-Vere this morning made the Queen's Birthday Honours list for his services to music, awarded Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit.

Shot DJ Sir-Vere!

DJ Sir-Vere, real name Philip Alexander Te-Aorangi Bell, has been the big boss of Mai FM for the last seven years as programme and content director. He has helped transform Mai into one of the biggest and hottest radio stations in New Zealand, with just last month helping Mai take out "Station of the Year" at the 2018 NZ Radio Awards.

Over a 20+ year career as a DJ and promoter, Sir-Vere has cemented himself as THE authority on all things hip-hop and RnB in Aotearoa. Couldn't have gone to a more deserving man if you ask us!

From all of us here at Mai please join us in congratulating DJ Sir-Vere. Stand up, don't be humble.
