Wait Till You See Who’s On It! Details on ZJ Heno’s Debut Album

When he isn’t hosting Thursday mid-morning Jam Session or his Sunday afternoon radio show, ZJ Heno is busy doing the only two other things that mean the most to him.

Music and being a dad.

Since featuring on Uptown Radio, ZJ Heno has been a maestro when it comes to Jamaican music and culture and even found a way to integrate that lifestyle here in Kenya by creating Kenyan reggae riddims.

With artist connections from both the 254 and 876 (Jamaica), ZJ Heno’s riddims have earned radio play across the world but he has been stretching his limits, showing us that he is more than just a dancehall deejay.

ZJ Heno’s Thursday Jam Session sees him mix a variety of music genres, teasing it on the radio promo saying…

‘I like to keep people guessing’

Well we so far have heard him churn out impeccable, Rnb, house and even hip hop music mixes, the later of which is the genre he appears to have gravitated towards with this new release of his.

Featuring stars like Khaligraph, Tunji and Ace the Don, it appears Heno’s debut album ‘Loyalty’, will be filled with bars and with international cameos by Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire, UK’s Robbo Ranks and BET Award Winning star Stoneboy, this is definitely set up for success.

The star who is promoting this big debut revealed the official release date as 2nd of February 2018 with pre-orders set for the 19th of January.

Don’t know about you … but I sure can’t wait to get myself a copy.

 

 

Diplo Details One Of His Most Difficult DJing Gig

He is one third of iconic crew Major Lazer. 

Diplo is a name synonymous to big hits and this beat maestro recently opened up about a gig he and fellow Major Lazer crew members had to host in Lagos Nigeria.

As reported on MTV Base, Diplo’s recent interview on GQ magazine has him detailing an outdoor festival in Lagos where the sound reportedly blew during a thunderstorm forcing him to banter with the crowd for a good hour while they attempted to kickstart the sound again. 

The deejay and producer who’ has pretty much gigged in most of the world, described that gig as one of the hardest yet, recalling explaining to Walshy fire (fellow Major Lazer member) that Nigeria is where you live for die as a deejay, likening it to a ‘deejay Olympics’. 

Diplo was recently starred as a male video vixen in the now viral video to Charlie XCX’s ‘Boys’ alongside industry heavy weights Charlie Push, Ty Dollar $ign, Wiz Khalifa, Mark Ronson among others. 

Here’s the exclusive one on one G Money had with Walshy Fire on HBR weekday breakfast show GMITM (G Money in the morning).

History Made On #GMITM! Watch

Now this is a show that every #GMITM listener will not be forgetting anytime soon, considering how different it was but in case you missed it, not to worry, we covered it all for you.

The man surely needs no introduction (but just for the record) Leighton Walsh aka Walshy Fire co-wrote the Chronixx song “Blaze Up The Fire,” lent his vocals to “Too Original” and along with Diplo, he is one of the members of the chart topping group Major Lazer; who produced Justin Bieber and MO’s hit “Cold Water,” among many more.

He not only did the 10 O’clock news, took over the #GMITM show, let us in on why he is in the country but also dropped,(for the first time) brand new music on Homeboyz Radio’s #GMITM (G-Money In The Morning) show.

Walshy is working on a historical Afro-Caribbean album which he says is geared towards “promoting the cultures to a whole genres of people,” will he be working with any Kenyan on the album?

Among his other projects, while in Africa, the multi-talented producer will also be recording a TV show.

His main agenda in Kenya specifically is:

If he was to describe his works? “Very difficult to put in one word” he says, but if he was to describe it he would say “unifying.”

His live shows are a DJs dream and there is arguably still no match to his craft in Dancehall Emceeing. According to the Jamaican-American DJ and record producer it’s his personality that makes him stand out and win crowds over while emceeing, regardless of the number of times he pulls up a song.

Listen to his latest release “No Laziness” ft. Ketchup and Bunji Garlin below:

 

 

His last word of inspiration to anyone working on a project that they believe in is not to give up.
