I never knew much about him until we had a little clash on facebook, his response to a post I had made about his yet to be released single tittled #1500, with an artwork defacing our #500 note gave me a reason to know him more.
Yes! We had a private chat o squash off the beef, and out of curiosity, I asked to know more about Port Harcourt Based Afro Pop & Dancehall Artist Jefferson J_Fly.
Idehenre Oshaon Jefferson is his name, popularly known as “J Fly”. He was born on the 18th of August 1990 in Sapele, Delta State of Nigeria. While being brought up in Warri, he grew up listening to the likes of Fela, King Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey and lots of other great musicians back then.
The Edo State indigene besides his general love for music was desperate in his quest to try out the music business officially. “J Fly” started casually with rap and hip hop in his early days but quitted because he wanted something better and befitting of his personality.
In 2007, on a visit to Port Harcourt City, when he accompanied a friend to a studio where he was made to jump on a beat by the owner of the studio and founder of One Music Records, funny enough, his delivery came out well.
With much confidence, in 2009, he officially moved to Port Harcourt City from Delta State in a bid to pursue his career in music and that same year, his first single TALKING DRUM became the streets favorite and above all accepted by the people.
Till date, “J Fly” is now known as a figure in the music industry having channeled and built his sound to the Afro Pop & Dancehall genre with more singles to his credit.
The fast emerging music artist is however not signed to any record label but has shared same stage with Top notch Nigerian A lists acts like Davido, Patoranking, Runtown, Reekado Banks, Kizz Daniel and among other great music artistes.
As he would always say, the success into the music industry is hardwork, consistency, prayer and patience. With that whatever is yours will show up and there is nothing stopping this young man because he is all out to conquer with his thrilling vocals and lyrical content.
Exclusive tip offs from close source however disclosed that J_Fly is in talks with a record label, and might let the cat out of the bag soon.
