Jay-Jay Cee is one of the country’s youthful musicians who believe that music has to have an impact on those it is created for. Little wonder most of his songs tackle different issues taking place in our society.
“Everyone exists or works for another person. Even the President occupies that high office to serve other people. The same applies to musicians; we are servants of the people. No wonder, my music tackles issues that concern people because I want my music to be relevant in the first place,” said Jay-Jay Cee.
He has released a couple of tracks that tackle relevant issues ranging from hardwork to persistence, and encouragement to self-esteem.
In Makhumutcha, which features Nesness, Jay-Jay Cee motivates people that are suffering in society to work hard and believe in themselves and that they will make it one day. Whereas, Mumamva Bwanji questions other people’s evil deeds whether they have positive impact on personal, community or national development in society.
Jay-Jay Cee said: “People must realise that evil deeds, such as womanising, robbery or killing one another do not have room if we are to succeed as citizens or society.”
The Blantyre-based musician, who resides in Machinjiri, has also produced other songs such as Iwe Maliro, and Agogo which features Scorla.
He has a 14-track album titled, Dzina Langa, delves into different societal issues, including HIV and Aids, poverty and youth unemployment rate.
Jay-Jay Cee was born James Juma Chitsonga and he fell in love with music at a tender age after drawing inspiration from the late dancehall artists Vic Marley, Annie Matumbi on the local scene and Sean Pau and Mavado on the international scene. It was in 2013 when he met fellow musician Mady P, who signed him into Mabilinganya Empire. n
