In 2006, DJ BoBo became a National Ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme Against Hunger (WFP) He is the first Swiss celebrity to assume the role. “Traveling around the world has made me sensitive to people in need. It is a privilege to be able to help,” he said.

DJ Bobo’s connection to us here in Hollywood? Have you ever heard the theme song to “Beverly Hills Chihuaua“? After “Chihuahua” was used in a Spanish “Coca-Cola” commercial, it became the second best selling single worldwide in 2003! How’s that for numbers?

For that and the many achievements including humanitarian efforts during his stellar career, we’re recognizing DJ BOBO with an Honorary Angeleno-Swiss Award. Congratulations, DJ BOBO, You’ve Made(it)in.LA+.
