I am JayCash, and I am a singer/rapper, songwriter and music producer, amongst other things that I do, I.e Acting, music mentoring and CEO of CMJ entertainment.
2.How would you define what you do to a novice?
I am a musician, an entertainer and a business man who is very lucky to have all he’s dreams laid out in front of him.
3.At what point in your life did you know this career path?
Can’t remember my exact age then but I know I wrote my first song when I was in primary 6 and since then I’ve not wanted to follow any other career path.
Not really, if there was ever any regrets then it’ll be allowing my parents, family and society to temporarily derail me from this path! But now I’ve come to understand that timing is important and the temporary derailment was necessary to build and strengthen my person! Which is very essential in my chosen career.
Like I hinted earlier, it was difficult for my parents and older siblings to understand my career choice especially then when society sees professions like medicine, engineering, law etc as (A or high class) and acting, singing, dancing, etc as (C or lower class), but they soon learnt to accept it and are now very encouraging and supportive! I think it’s because societal views have changed
