After several months of intense studio works and creative consultations, multi-talented dancehall/reggae star, Justin Kingland, famously known as JKL4real, has finally dropped his long awaited double singles and hot videos.
The new songs that are currently ruling the airwaves and enjoying rave reviews from pundits are: 4real Party and Whaever.
According to the Nigerian-born international music star and boss of 4realRecordsGhana, the works are his special gifts to his teeming fans all over the world.
The well travelled entertainer and philanthropist, who has been singing and promoting good music for over two decades now, is also an accomplished entrepreneur and blogger.
In a chat with us, the music mogul who owns ultra modern studios in the heart of Ghana and Malaysia, disclosed reasons behind the two fresh singles and their wave-making videos.
“4real Party and Whaever, are the two songs that I’m currently promoting in Nigeria and all over the world.
They are the latest songs from my forthcoming full album. Basically, these songs were specially composed for my teeming fans, who are scattered globally.
They are appreciation songs. The songs are for them and also my own little way of saying thank you to them for their love and support over the years. The videos are also ready for them to watch and relax with. I have released over six singles and three videos, aside these two fresh ones, since I relocated to Ghana, from my former base in Malaysia, over seven months ago. More songs are on the way. Music is my first love and I won’t stop singing till I’m dead,” hinted the Anambra State-born crooner.
For his immense contributions to the growth of music, especially outside our shores, JKL4Real, has been recognised and honoured with multiple awards.
He was a two-time African Entertainment AE Award winner, Best Reggae/Dancehall (Solo/Group) 2011 and Best Inspirational Song/Music Writer/Composer 2010.
JKL4Real has equally smiled home with plaques as Best African Male Artist of the Year, Best Dancehall Artist of the Year and Best Collaboration of the Year.
The Google Me exponent was also nominated in the International African Achievers Awards category (Successful international-African artist/promoter, 2016).
He also came third at the Byte My Music Global African Music Award (GAMA), in 2011.
Amazingly, aside music, his love for philanthropy is great.
In fact, his humanitarian works in Malaysia, US and Nigeria are legendary.
And since settling in Ghana, he had visited and donated to several motherless babies’ homes and single handedly done medical screening for over 500 youths at the Liberia Refugees Camp.
Another laudable project JKL4Real has successfully embarked on is the campaign for peace towards Ghana’s 2016 election. He had toured five communities in Accra and hopes to visit all parts of the country in his quest for peace.
Interestingly, he recently signed a four-month contract with Vienna City night club to host a celebrity Karaoke event dubbed “4real Party” every Fridays.
