There comes a time when you have to make tough choices in pursuit of your dreams. Will you stay at your full-time job or quit to go on the road with a rising artist? Will you recover from a heart attack or appear on national television with that artist? In the past decade, Brandon “DJ Bonics” Glova has done all that as DJ for Wiz Khalifa.
But don’t get it confused. Before Cameron Jibril Thomaz became Wiz Khalifa, DJ Bonics was DJ Bonics. The 38-year-old has been deejaying for decades, was the No. 1 afternoon jock and music director at KISS-FM 96.1 in Pittsburgh and made a name for himself at DJ competitions well before he began working for the then-unproven star a decade ago.
