Who is DJ Simmons?

DJ Simmons will feature in the forthcoming MTV reality show 'Buckhead Shore'. The series is a spin-off of 'Jersey Shore', which is one of the network's most popular shows of all time. However, this time around, the series will be shot in Atlanta and will include a more diverse crew. DJ Simmons is often known as "music royalty," having grown up as the son of Grammy-winning music producer/songwriter Daryl Simmons. Daryl Simmons is an American R&B artist, composer, and record producer who has collaborated with L.A. Reid and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds' production team. Daryl, with Manchild (band), recorded two soul and funk albums and the small hit 'Especially for You' on the Chi Sound Records label between 1977 and 1980. The "music royalty" intends to follow in his father's footsteps, but he is sidetracked by the lures of parties, friends, and lake life.

DJ Simmons is a major admirer of the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant. A day after Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash in January 2020, a heartbroken DJ Simmons paid tribute to the Lakers' star on Instagram. "My true friends know how much of a Lakers and Kobe fan I am ...this man taught me fight he taught me heart and taught me discipline. I use to watch you play and go in my drive way and practice your moves. I’m sick to my stomach I didn’t get to ever meet you and tell you how thankful I was for how you impacted my life ...long live the Greatest ROLE MODEL AND NBA PLAYER OF ALL TIME #8 #24"

DJ Simmons, as far as we know, has no modeling or fashion background, but it hasn't prevented him from establishing a wonderful sense of style. He understands how to put together the right attire for every occasion, whether it's a formal function or a casual get-together with friends. DJ Simmons may be on the verge of reality TV success, but that doesn't mean he wants the public to know everything about him. He looks to be a pretty private kind of person who hasn't revealed much about his personal life. Having said that, we'll definitely learn a lot more about him after the series premieres. There are several reality shows with cast members who have previously been on reality television. That is not the case with Buckhead Shore. DJ, like many of his other cast members, has no prior acting experience.
