What is DJ Livia’s net worth? How much does DJ Livia charge?
DJ Livia (real name: Olivia Borjas) is an American DJ. She is best known for DJ’ing events for the likes of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and is noted for her youth (she is, at the time of writing, only 15 years old).
The Origin Story
Livia was born in Chicago, Illinois, on June 23rd, 2007.
Her parents are Henry “DJ West Side” Borjas and Saidy Borjas.
She is the youngest of six children.
Livia’s early life was far from easy; at a young age, Livia’s parents were both laid off in 2009 by the warehouse where they worked due to the Great Recession.
As a toddler, Livia (and the rest of her family) lived out of the car of father Henry.
During this period, homeless shelters tried to separate the family into male and female members who would stay in different shelters, according to Henry.
He refused to do this and kept the family together by having them all stay in his car.
The Borjas were able to keep some of their personal possessions with them during that period.
One such family possession was a VHS tape that showed Henry breakdancing in his youth.
His four eldest children expressed an interest in learning, with Henry offering to teach them as long as they kept up their grades at school.
Chi-Town Finest Breakers
When Livia grew a little older, it was not in breakdancing that she was interested, but in DJ’ing.
She took an interest in spinning the decks from the age of 5 and provided backing tracks for her elder siblings while they breakdanced.
Father Henry nurtured this interest in his daughter, and Livia was soon wowing crowds with her record-spinning skills.
The Borjas kids performed in parks in the Berwyn district of Chicago, and according to their father, people of all ages were soon signing up for his breakdance classes.
The family, performing as the ‘Chi-Town Finest Breakers,’ appeared on America’s Got Talent (where Simon Cowell called them “the coolest family in America”) and the Steve Harvey Show.
In 2016, Livia appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she showed the veteran broadcaster how to spin the decks.
DeGeneres was so impressed by the youngster that she incorporated her into her ‘Ellen’s Gapkids’ campaign, further catapulting the youth to stardom.
Livia made such an impression, in fact, that she has DJ’d private functions for several big names.
Her biggest private function was for the birthday party of North West, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s child.
West and Kardashian were impressed with the precocious youngster’s facility with the decks and spoke highly of her on social media platforms such as Twitter.
In 2016, Livia and her family relocated to California to further the family’s musical aspirations. Despite that, Livia has expressed a desire to one day return to her native Chicago.
