As I ask the President about his artist name he is more than willing to tell me all about it!
"In the Iceland underground it is an unwritten rule that one cannot choose his own dj name, as there is a big tradition here for giving people their nick names. There is Gummi Leather, Siggi Majones, Margeir Mcgyver, Keli Kaldi etc and mine I got after returning from Africa in 2001. My sister and her family live there and I visited during the re-elections of the late Omar Bongo.
I returned to Iceland with bags of t-shirts and accessories that were distributed in the streets of Libreville. I had just begun to work on a video script with director Dagur Kári Pétursson and, well, to make a long story short Dagur saw it fit to call me "President" as I was wearing all these promotions from Omar. And thus my name was President Bongo! And now there is only me." - explains President Bongo with a single bead dripping from his upper lip, and adds: "May the original rest in peace!"
