Get Familiar: J' Re My out with ‘Coz Ov You’ and more

Published

on

musicNewcomer, J’ Re My is a multi talented artist who wants to replicate his growing success in fashion design into his passion for music. After putting his musical ambitions on hold for several years, the contemporary and urban singer has return to the music with the release of his titled ‘Coz Ov You’ and other bonus tracks such as  ‘Hw3 Woho Yiye’ ,’3y3 Mo’ and ‘Afia Donkor’. Born Jeremiah Kofi Obuobi in Tema, he uses the stage name J’ Re My (pronounced Jay’ Reh My). He started performing at Star Junior Secondary School in 1996, where he was nicknamed Buju because he was able to imitate Buju Banton’s voice on several of the songs on Buju’s debut album. Upon entering Senior Secondary School in Temasco, he changed his nickname to Culio, a memento to Coolio of ‘Gangster’s Paradise’ fame. In 1998, he started to perform his own songs during Entertainment in Temasco. With the now famous DJ Mensah as his Entertainment Prefect, he often got the chance to perform at most entertainment shows on campus. J’ Re My later joined the group, Camp Yard (now R2bees) but opted out and formed a new group with the stage name, Broken Silence. By 1999, he had become very popular on campus; he represented Temasco in an AIDS Awareness Music Competition that he won for his school. As part of a Temasco final year funfair in 2000, he was asked by the head prefect to perform a free style on HIV/AIDS Awareness on air at Adom FM with Dr. Duncan as presenter.  In Tema Community 5, where he resided, he came across most of the stars of the late 90s. Namely Blaconi (UK), Roko Banton (USA),Root Eye,Nana Fynn, Akasakyerema and others. These names became his mentors in the industry so there was no way he could not have been influenced by Quality music. He entered Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2002 and later met John Foley (now Jay Foley) in 2003. Back then, John was a sound engineer and a rap artist, so J’ Re My managed to record two songs in his start-up studio in 2004. J’ Re My later decided to concentrate on his Clothing Line called @ObjClothing and Accessories,and temporarily halted his active participation in music between 2006-2009. During this period he worked with the BBC twice designing and producing the trophies for their 2007 Africa Radio Awards and in 2008 the BBC African footballer of the year trophy, which Emmanuel Adebayor won. He won a ticket to South Africa as the first runner-up to Ghana’s Fashion Entrepreneur of the Year 2008, organized by the British Council in Ghana. Finally, MTV Base, as part of their Road to Mama Show in 2009, granted him a free MTV Base interview for clothing old time classmates R2Bees. In March 2010, J’ Re My decided to create a music genre in a way to preserve the fundamental Ghanaian highlife music so that it would still have a foreign appeal. He called this genre PopHighlife, basically a kind of urban music that gets an artiste to make a highlife song with lots of proverbs on a hip hop, rock or pop beat.  To have a taste of what this music sounds like download J’ Re My’s latest single and bonus tracks below.  ‘Coz Ov You’ >>>>DOWNLOAD ‘Hw3 Woho Yiye’>>>>DOWNLOAD ‘3y3 Mo’ >>>>DOWNLOAD  ‘Afia Donkor’ >>>>DOWNLOAD]]>
