Mr. Jux revealed that he had worked on it for 3 years. ‘I am happy with it cause it is my first album. I wanted the album to full of love songs. I believe that love is everything. I was living in that love when I was recording the song. I have been in the industry for 10 years and for 7 years I have always been in a relationship. That is why I have such experience.’ he told Maina.

Mr. Kageni asked Juma how his relationship was with his ex, Tanzanian superstar, Vanessa Mdee. He said that he had nothing but love for her and added that she was a huge influence on the album. ‘She really added a lot to the album. I had been with her for 5 years. Life goes on. Before recording, I really interrogated my ideas.’ he responded.

The artiste told Maina that the first single for the album was called, Sugua which featured Diamond. The main inspiration for the song was that it would be a club song. Something many might not know is that both Mr. Jux and Diamond are very close friends.

His 2020 goals were to do videos for the album and on enlarging his fashion brand. ‘I will concentrate on both, with me shooting many videos, concerts, videos, and tours, you know the album is 18 songs. In 2020, we will tour even Kenya.’
