A figurehead of the trending Afro Fusion sound sweeping the diaspora is 22-year-old, Zambian musician, producer, and Cloud 9 Music Africa member Jay Trigga, who returns with his groovy debut EP 'Lover Boy'. A collection of five Afro fusion tracks swirling with emotive and catchy soundscapes.
'Lover Boy' is led by Trigga's rich vocals, and feel-good afro-inspired rhythms, which gives us a glimpse of his sonic versatility and what we can expect from his forthcoming debut album. Rooted in the message that “love is universal,” ‘Lover Boy’ is a short but sweet soundtrack for the lovers around the world, crafted carefully around a delicate combination of soft yet lush instrumentals and witty lyricism.
Whether rapping on bass-heavy hip hop bangers or lacing uptempo Afro-dance tracks with classic sing-a-long hooks, Jay Trigga exudes pure confidence in his vocal dexterity, steering the project with ease. And his aptitude for combining the sounds inspired by his Zambian roots with fresh beats to create hit after hit is like no other, proving that his life-long passion for music has set him levels above the rest.
Jay Trigga has been a foundational and staple fixture in the rise of Afro Fusion music in Zambia. Having made a name for himself with local and international collaborations with the likes of award-winning Nigerian hip-hop act and actor Ice Prince Zamani and rapper Dremo of Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), the rising act carves a space for himself in Zambia’s Afro fusion scene – with the EP providing us a good idea of the up-tempo music we can expect from his debut album.
This only the beginning for Zambia’s next big thing!
