DJ Bobo has been in the music industry since 1985 and is still successful today. In an interview, today's 50-year-old revealed that he was once quite shy – but this property owes him in all his great stage career.
DJ Bobo hadn't been easy with the girls in their youth. "I was shy," said the Swiss national of Munich newspaper "tz". "The guys with mopeds were easier with the girls, so that was one of the reasons I started dancing – women love men who can dance."
He had never been to a dance school. He had learned everything in front of the mirror. "But I wanted to go to the dance school because I could finally get a girl contact."
Where DJ Bobo would like to perform
DJ Bobo, who is actually named René Baumann, was especially known in the 90's with songs like "Somebody Dance With Me" and for that time bombastic scene shows. In 2019 he goes on tour again.
He also wants to perform in Iran. His dream: "Play once in Tehran," he told the newspaper. "We have many fans there, and I went to the Iranian Embassy in Bern to ask, but there is no ban on dancing." (Dpa / jwo)
