UNHERALDED Bulawayo-based Zim Dancehall chanter, King Jay, on Wednesday concluded the recording of his single video shoot of the song titled Siya (Yekela).

The recording of the video, which has scenes from Bulawayoa��s Nketa 6 suburb and some in the citya��s Central Business District (CBD) started on Monday. TheA� project will be released under More Life Music Recording Label.

The video features Wine Queens and Project X, artistes that are still carving their names in the countrya��s music industry.

In an interview with B-Metro, King Jay, who interestingly once shared the stage with Zimbabwea��s music GodfatherA�A� Oliver Mtukudzi, in South Africa, said the title of his debut single was influenced by the negative response that he got when he showed the wish to pursue music.

a�?I almost thought otherwise onA� pursuing music. A number of people kept on discouraging me saying the countrya��s music industry does not pay. I thought of using music to tell my negative lifeA� experiences,a�? said the 23-year-old musician who in 2014 released an album titled Wakaenda.
