  • Join DJ Irie at the Prepskills US College Expo at Roy Thomson Hall


We are thrilled to announce that the US College Expo 2024 will kick off with an electrifying musical performance by the renowned DJ Irie on April 20, 2024 in Toronto, followed by an inspiring talk where he will share his personal journey to college and the discovery of his musical passion. DJ Irie, known for his incredible talent and as the official DJ for the NBA’s Miami Heat, attended Florida International University, making his story relatable and encouraging for aspiring students.



DJ Irie’s Message:

“My message is to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! You are no better or worse than anyone else. Yes, some people are born with more opportunities than others but that doesn’t make them better than you. It just means you have to apply yourself and work that much harder to create your own opportunities. Success lives at the intersection of preparation and opportunity.”

This invaluable message resonates deeply with the journey many students embark upon, and DJ Irie’s words of encouragement are sure to inspire and motivate attendees at the Expo.

The US College Expo will feature a wealth of information, guest speakers, and opportunities to engage with representatives from various US colleges. It’s an event tailored to empower students as they navigate the exciting path toward higher education.


All parents and students are welcome!

Speak with US College representatives and ask about student life, the admissions process, tuition and so much more!

DJ Irie

Florida International University Grad
The official DJ for the Miami Heat, Carnival Cruise Lines, and Jamie Foxx

Take for example the night DJ Irie was spinning at Robert Downey Jr.’s private birthday bash held at Downey’s Malibu mansion. As the story goes, party host Jamie Foxx was on the mic while Irie had a crowd of Hollywood elites—Jodi Foster, Tobey Maguire, Samuel L. Jackson—partying to a remix of Sting and the Police’s classic hit Roxanne. Sometime during the mix, Sting himself grabbed the mic and started singing along. “I was thinking, wow is this really happening!” recalls Irie. “I couldn’t believe that the same music-loving boy from Miami was actually spinning while Sting rocked out to my mix.”

Calling Miami home, DJ Irie continues to be a major supporter of numerous local and national non-profit organizations, in addition to his active role with the Irie Foundation. By approaching the Foundation with the same unwavering passion, energy, and commitment that has allowed his career to thrive, Irie and his team continue to expand the scope of the Foundation’s efforts.

In addition to his work in the community, DJ Irie is an international sensation with a contagious enthusiasm and larger-than-life personality. While he’s certainly an authority on electrifying any party, the Irie Music brainchild is no ordinary DJ. Currently serving as the official DJ of Carnival Cruise Lines, Irie’s partnerships range among several “Who’s Who” of blue-chip companies and brands, including the 3-time NBA World Champion Miami HEAT and superstar Jamie Foxx. The St. Croix native is also the man behind Irie Music, Corp., co- owner of Loose Anchor Clothing Co., Pucci’s Pizza and Venture Projects, LLC venture capital. He’s the #1 choice for countless celebrities and high-profile events everywhere from South Beach to Singapore, and has performed on some of the world’s biggest stages, including the American Music Awards, MTV VMA’s, FIFA World Cup, International Premier Tennis League, Daytona 500, Super Bowl, and NBA All-Star, and at corporate events for Louis Vuitton, Google, Red Bull, Hublot, and General Motors, just to name a few.

Recognized worldwide for his tremendous talent and sharp business acumen, he has picked up numerous accolades, including the Global Spin Awards’ National Club DJ of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year awards, Charles E. Perry Young Alumni Visionary Award, Grey Goose’s Rising Icon Award and the Southern Entertainment Awards’ Nightclub DJ of the Year. He is a mainstay on “Good Morning America,” and has been featured on “Conan,” “The Early Show,” MTV, and E! Entertainment Television, as well as in Fortune Magazine, Forbes, USA Today, Us Weekly, ESPN The Magazine, and countless others.
