US-based Nigerian musician, James Olikpe professionally known as Jay The King, has announced the release of his much-anticipated debut Extended Play(EP) titled ‘Thinking out loud’(TOL).
The versatile act said his debut EP is a compilation of danceable songs with catchy lyrics that talk about everyday life people experience that’s a little fun and a little naughty.
TOL is a six- track EP that consists of two of his previously released singles ‘Fi e shaya’ and ‘Lono’.
Jay The King’s knack for songwriting comes so effortlessly, and according to him, it comes naturally.
“When I hear a beat, the lyrics just flow out. When I’m in my element, they just come together”, he said.
Speaking further on his lyrics, he said: “My Lyrics can be both sweet and naughty but fun. When I write a song, the lyrics may be a thought or an experience. But it’s important to me that they’re relatable to my fans.”.
Sharing his most memorable achievement so far, he said: “I would have to say my being able to record myself with my mobile studio. I’ve spent countless hours learning how to operate my equipment. I love being able to take my time perfecting my craft”, said Jay The King.
On what is lacking in today’s music culture, he said: “I think that the industry has made it very difficult for up and coming artists to be heard. There is a lot of really good artists out there that are never heard because they don’t have the resources. That’s one of my dreams, to one day help those people with a platform to achieve their dreams”.
