Miguel “DJ Rebirth” Campbell believes his third consecutive win as Event DJ of The Year in the Sterling Gospel Awards is testament to hard work and dedication.

The event took place last Saturday at the Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston.

Campbell has hosted Youth Connection, which airs Saturdays from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Love 101 FM, since 2016.

“Winning an award for me signifies that my hard work and dedication didn't go unnoticed. So many times we work our very hardest to present something that we feel enthused about, to no recognition. As Christians, we work for God's approval, but if we are any at all honest, deep down we are encouraged by the positive words of others,” he said in an interview with Jamaica Observer's Splash.

A career in media was always a dream for Campbell who points to Colin Hines of Fame FM as his main influence. The spontaneity of the medium is what he finds fascinating.

“There are points where you have to stick to the script, but for the most part, having an extroverted personality comes as a huge plus to anyone considering media,” he said.

Through Youth Connection, Campbell seeks to spiritually entertain young Christians.

“The show is centred on young people. I also have mature persons who listen, but the demographic is mostly the youth,” he said.

After finishing studies at Wolmer's Boys' High, Campbell studied at the International University of the Caribbean, where he earned a bachelor's degree in business administration.

He presently works in the public sector.
