The Love Story behind DJ Qwess Coast
Meet Alfred Torregano
DJ Qwess Coast toured internationally with artists such as Damien Marley, Nas, Omarion, Lloyd, Jinsu, and Jasmine V. Meanwhile, he built his own hip hop magazine from the ground up. DJ Qwess is, in addition, a holistic health coach and an author of a children’s series. On his free weekends, he teaches kids at Agape how to produce music. For DJ Qwess Coast, also known as Alfred Torregano, finding his light came in the form of giving back to the community in times of great loss–loss of his father and the company he built. Through fellowship at Agape, DJ Qwess learned self love and accountability to the self. Due to these lessons, DJ Qwess discovered he contained the skills to handle whatever life threw his way. As of a result that journey with Agape, Alfred overcame the anger and resentment from past struggles.
