I get asked on a fairly regular basis why I choose the moniker 'DJ Nyke'. Well that's easy to answer... I didn't!

Here's the short version of how it happened. Yes the sports clothing and shoe line Nike did have something to do with it, although not as much as people think. You wouldn't believe how many people actually thought that was my government name. Although it's gone through a few different spelling changes over the years (Nike, Nai-ki and Nikey) and an equal amount of time of me trying to rid myself of it, I finally embraced it. At the very least, it makes for an interesting dinner/drinking conversation.

I shouldn't complain... after all, in Greek mythology, Nike was the embodiment of Victory(albeit in female, but still). Must be why Rolls Royce, Honda Motorcycles and quite a few other well known brands use an image of the goddess as it's symbol.
