His follow up effort entitled “Around you” was engeneerd by Jay B Walter at Traverse Music, the young rising talent of Jay Lima with his rhythmic sound, started rising to national stardom. Featuring hits like “Party Tonight” and “Lusaka Love” both produced by Trap from Double Locked Media and were taken off his EP called “Simplicity”. Lusaka Love comfirmed what well informed critics had already suspected, the next big thing had arrived!
In 2017, Jay Lima started working on his first Studio Extended Play(EP). He decided to drop ‘never know’ off the EP as the first single from the project and got massive radio play and perfomances. Moving from strength to strength in 2018, Lima released his first studio project entitled SIMPLICITY which he conceptualised as “Living a simple Life” with 9 hit songs with features such as, Kas-Lee, Benny Bankx, Binyo, Backspace, Stepholic, JB Jones, KidofTheYear, Dabo D, Don Chichi & B’Chillz under the production of Trap the Mixguru/Day Zulu of Double Locked Media. With overwhelming response from fans, radio playbacks included “Party Tonight”, “Simplcity” and “Shinning.” The project is uniquely different as Jay Lima uses it to showcase his own Lyric-writing skills.
Jay Limas strength approach to music is set in a unique ear to the listener, an understanding of the listening public’s tastes, using his song writting to emphasize the need to use music not just as entertainment, but also as a way of communicating to the connected people,sharing experiences and uniting Africa.
With the ability to compose a sung hook, a strong 16 bar rap verse or a melodic bridge, this triple threat of songwritting, singing and rapping certainly makes Lima a star for many years to come in Zambian/African music.
