I am a big music lover and have always wondered if my voice could get a pass in the studio. A couple of weekends ago, I got the chance to explore my wonder.
I was really bored and had no plans. After a while, I decided to pay one of my friends a visit. His name is Jay, he’s a producer. He was working on a couple of projects at the time, so I just watched the process of how music was made and it seemed really fun. I opened up to him about how I would love to cover a Jhené Aiko song as she is one of my favourite artists.
He asked me to choose a song and before I turned around, he had downloaded the instrumental and pulled up the lyrics for me to sing along to. I cannot lie that I was impressed with the sound and I have to give all props to Jay for the production. He made a verse for the track and within a couple of hours, Jay had sent an audio to me on WhatsApp of my cover of Jhené Aiko’s “The Worst”.

*Disclaimer: I am not an artist and I am not chasing a music career. Maybe in another lifetime, it’s something I would consider haha.
He is a producer and a rapper. He worked projects like Loose Kanyon and AQ’s crown album as well as the Sarkodie’s infamous cover of Wizkid’s Ojuelegba. He has an EP that would be out soon called Jayyinus. Follow him on Instagram @beatsbyjayy for the release date.
Thank you Jay. Love you xx
