Jay Q Was Not A Jama Music Producer – Coded of 4×4 Tells Root Eye


coded 4x41Multimedia’s Hitz FM has dedicated the month of August to celebrate Hiplife music.

Due to this, one of the station’s flagship entertainment shows, Showbiz This week had a conversation with Coded, a member of 4×4 music group to talk more about the genre and how the group, which consists of Captain Planet, Fresh Prince and Coded started.

The rapper during the interview told MzGee, host of the Saturday entertainment show that he gained a lot of money from their debut album, Sekletele that was released in 2003. He said even though people called the title track, Sekletele, a jama song, it did not tickle him because he reaped a lot of cash from it.

He also refuted Roote Eye’s claim that Jay Q was a jama music producer. Coded told MzGee that Jeff Tennyson Quaye professionally known by his stage name Jay Q was not just into fast tempo music but was also good at producing hiphop songs.

“If Roote Eye is saying that Jay Q was a jama producer, that is his opinion and he is entitled to that. I just think that Jay Q played a major role in this industry. Lets give praise to who praise is due.

I’ve followed Jay Q keenly and his production and I’ve realised that he was not playing only jama. He did not even start playing jama when he came into the scene. He started with Buk Bak and if you listen to Buk Bak’s songs, there was nothing like jama in there.

He also named the music producer as one of the best sound engineers who produced good songs in the early 2000s.

Explaining why they contacted the CEO of Q-Lex Entertainment and Jay-Qlex Recording Studio to produce their hit single, Sekletele, Coded disclosed that “he had come out with a lot of hit songs with Buk Bak so it was just right that the person who was keeping Buk Bak going produced us.”
