Born in Ibadan, Namenj had been making covers for hits songs for a number of years and started releasing his own songs independently before entering the #Empawa30 competition last year. After opting in for the #empawa30 competition last year founded by the Banku music pioneer himself, Mr Eazi, he has since been selected to lead a new generation of Arewa pop singers.
Talented Arewa singer and songwriter Ali Jubril Namanjo otherwise known as Namenj is the newest Empawa 30 artiste and superstar. Namenj has released his official debut single titled “Rayuwata”. The Afro-pop track which is rendered in Hausa was produced by Deratheboy, who also produced Joeboy‘s smash hit- “Baby”.
Rayuwata serves a prelude to the release of a collection of intimate and personal songs Namenj has recorded over a soul searching journey yet to be titled EP.
