Tanzanian R&B king has crossed over into Kenya to team up with legendary 254 artiste Nyashinski for a new release called “Incase You Don’t Know”.

The love jam brewed over respective trips from Kenya to Tanzania between the two culminated in this reflective serenade that got the best from the leading East African stars.

Speaking upon the release of his first song of 2019, Jux says, “Incase You Don’t Know” is not just a love song but a reflection on the power of love. Whether it’s your partner, your child or mum— this song is for all the lovers.” Adding on his choice of collaboration Juma said, “Nyashinski is a brilliant artist who takes time to produce quality work. We both have been checking out each other’s songs for some time. I had a feeling if he got on the track, he would add something unique to the song. He did a great job and we finally shot the music video with Hanscana from Nairobi.”
