I’ve always loved music, even when I was young I remember going through the song lyrics they used to publish in the newspaper. So I can say I was passionate. But it wasn’t until 2010 when I was in high school that one day I woke up at 3 am and started singing. I realized that day that my voice sounded different.
At some point in his life, he realised his voice could take him places and began doing random videos.
Construction work is one of many things I’ve been doing. I’ve taken on other jobs in movie shops and even as a matatu tout among others,he revealed.
Excited that the viral video has opened doors for him, Jamsta hopes to grow as an upcoming artist in the music industry.
When I recorded the video I was doing it for the sheer joy of it.I hope more chances come.
