Nadia to hit decks with DJ Sanchez

Model Nadia Forde has revealed that she is set to DJ alongside music legend Roger Sanchez.

Nadia told the Diary that she has been inundated with requests from Dublin's top venues to guest DJ at the weekends, since she debuted her skills at nightclub Sanctuary last month.

And the 21-year-old's has already secured a DJ date for the Penthouse VIP area of The Wright Venue on the same night as the much anticipated Sanchez gig. The Assets model says she is excited to be hitting the decks on the same night as the DJ master (pictured).

"I'm playing the Wright Venue the same night as Roger Sanchez on September 16. I'm a bit nervous about it. I'm doing a gig up in the Penthouse and I might get to meet him," she said.

"I'm starting to seriously panic. I'm a nervous person anyway, I would be quite anxious about certain things, especially about work.

"But once I get over the nerves I will be more confident," she explained.

Nadia has now joined Ireland's rising celebrity DJ club. With the likes of Fade Street stars Vogue Williams, Cici Cavanagh and MTV star Laura Whitmore all taking to the decks for appearances in top Dublin clubs.

Despite the growing demand for Nadia's DJing skills, the Malahide model says she never planned on making a career out of it.

"I never thought this is something I would do but I suppose with the background in FM104, it just seems like a natural progression.

"It's something I enjoy doing and if I can do it as a little thing on the side then why not. That's my mentality at the moment. I'm not trying to be any big superstar DJ," she said.
