In an era when any rapper’s upstart is based on gaining the coveted title of ‘Next Rated’ , 23yrd old Nigerian and Abia state native, JayB, born (Nwankwo Joshua) is certainly not on the path of quick fame and acclaim. Having been underground for quite a while honing his rhyme skills and recording a flurry of dope tracks and making guest appearances on both local and international songs, he has proven that success is not given but is earned. Despite juggling both music and education, the University of Abuja Physics undergraduate brings that schoolboy street-smart swag and savvy hip hop artistry to an industry that is rapidly picking pace rap wise.
With critically acclaimed singles ‘Time Machine’ ‘Marvin’ and ‘Cray’ creating a download buzz on the international and local scene, JayB has shown both versatility and range in his music. His ability to word play, story tell and metaphorically verse while also occasionally invoking the emotional side attached to music, he has shown that he isn’t very far from being your favourite rapper in no time.
