Vincent Nnamdi Ihemeje -known by the moniker May Jay is one of the latest Afropop artists to emerge on the Nigerian music scene. May Jay gained his music footing in the 2000s, around the same time as the unveiling of one of his biggest influences, Chris Brown. He however did not start visiting the studio until 2010, following the debut of another of his influences, Wizkid. Other acts that consistently inspire Mayjay’s sound include American singer Ty Dollar Sign and Jamaica’s modern dancehall crooner Kranium.
Housed under the large umbrella of Afropop, May Jay’s musical approach is best defined as Afro-fusion. He borrows elements from Jamaican music styles and merges them with different Afrocentric vibes to create pieces fit for local and global consumption. May Jay is currently on the verge of releasing new projects accompanied by top-notch videos that will testify to the greatness of his art. Good Life introduces us to the project, with Mayjay taking stock of how far he has come and the resulting effect of envy from myopic observers.
