The Heart Right Here singer announced via her official Twitter handle on Monday saying that after a two-year wait for her dream collaboration, her wish to have the Yahaya hit maker on the same song with her had finally come true.
“Two years ago someone asked me which East African artiste I would ever want to work with. I said Lady Jaydee because I just think she writes so well and is so powerful with her lyrics and content. She’s also just pretty cool. I then proceeded to ‘jokingly’ write it in my music journal. Well. This is us outside the studio this morning. Thank You @peternduati.. Looking forward to sharing this gem with y’all when it’s ready. #Jayamusic #PineCreek #Jaya2014 #NewFriend #CollaboTingz #ValidDreams.”
Jaya first hit the airwaves when she was featured by hip-hop guru Juliani in his smash hit song Bahasha Ya Ocampo in 2011. She has since worked with musical greats like Atemi Oyungu and Kanji Mbugua and even did background vocals for American gospel artiste Deitrick Haddon and Nigeria’s first time winner of the Idols West Africa Timi Dakolo.
