The Rapper & Content Writer – Dwight
“Writing a rap is kinda like writing content here at ennovation house; you have an idea, you make the notes and then you move to the music…We keep the music bumping here all day…it’s a great vibe, but it’s a lot of work, you got to always stay focused.” Meet Dwight, he is a content writer here at ennovation house, he’s been with us for almost 6 months. He joined ennovation house because he was looking for a job where he could do more than just push paper; a young and ‘fresh’ spot that was more than just a pay-check or another run-of-the-mill type job. What’s crazy is that on weekends he performs at some of the hottest clubs in Belgrade with his rap group DMP – a rap duo that’s actually not too bad.
Belgrade as a Destination
If you didn’t know, the nightlife in Belgrade is a big deal. In Lonely Planet’s new guide of 1000 Ultimate Experiences, it lists Belgrade as the number 1 party city in the world, surpassing Montreal, Buenos Aires, and even Dubai! The influx of young and talented Uni students hasn’t stopped in recent years; in fact, Belgrade has moved from becoming just a summer travel destination for clubbing, to a burgeoning hub for start-ups which have contributed to an innovative culture that’s beginning to over-run the city. It appears that the ‘work hard-party hard’ credo reigns supreme in Belgrade! “Getting in quality work is the most important thing, the fun is really only worth it once stuff goes well at work” according to Dwight. It’s that new 21st century millennial generation vibe; start-ups, rap music, apple watches, that kind of thing – ennovation house embodies this for Dwight, he gets to just be himself, unique, authentic, however you choose to put it, it’s a culture that embraces different perspectives and a positive environment where everyone can do their thing.
A Night Out
Going on a run through Belgrade with Dwight is like taking a fun-tour through the city. It’s Friday, and after getting through with the tasks at work, him and some of his colleagues hit the Irish-pub near the office to talk over the week. How they can improve, become more efficient, and increase productivity. Later on they head over to a club/bar to watch Dwight perform. He’s actually not that bad for a content writer, quite frankly the content was his strong suit – go figure!
When asked, what the main goal is at the end of the day, Dwight replies – “Most of us are around the same age, so it’s easy for us to relate and get along; we just try to get the work done and have fun while doing it…” It’s the quintessential 21st century company – a reality that most of our parents would have a hard time digesting. Flexible working hours, a diverse working environment and employees with varied interests and the go-ahead to do engage in different pursuits; Dwight is just one of the many.

Getting the work done is the main priority at ennovation house, but it never hurts to have a bit of fun along the way.
