“One difference between poetry and lyrics is that lyrics sort of fade into the background. They fade on the page and live on the stage when set to music.”
― Stephen Sondheim
Born Jesse Chibikem Folarin Winston to an engineer father (who is also a Preacher) and a Mother who has Education chiseled into her core.
Jessay is a New school Afro Urban Independent Artist who resides in Nigeria but has an inclination to sending good vibes word-wide, with his version of “good music” .
Though he may tend to fuse Raggae, Highlife and Pop into his sound, there is no doubt his cores are Hip Hop mixed up with some Afrocentric melody
With a strong penchant for good music, Jessay Started writing his own lyrics in 2005 during summer classes in junior secondary school.
Although he started with RnB, the love for Hip Hop Afro-Pop seemed to be more super seeding and the kid has gone on to master both crafts. Calling his main style ‘a perfect marriage between Hip Hop, RnB and Afro-Pop with concubines from other Genres’
