Jaye‘s latest single, ‘Amio’ brings back memories of what love used to be and feel like back in the 1980s. The BGC Melody signed singer demonstrates the power of love as a tool to reunite cultures, regions and even religions, insisting that love can cut across all boundaries.
‘Amio’ is a Cameroonian true love story between a Anglophone girl and a Francophone boy; who fall in love and fight what their relationship amidst regional conflict.
The song is delivered in pidgin English and mboko French and pays tribute to the original song, performed by Bebe Manga (died 2009).
The song, no doubt, revives the now fading memories of the rich musical heritage of Cameroon and Africa thanks to his African rumba sound and its raw use of musical instrument. Jaye describes her music as “AfroFusion and Kizomba” and says music gets her through life, personal struggles and she just wants to entertain.
