Speaking to Echo, Jili, who is signed under Woofa Simba Records, said his album has 10 songs and it talks about love.
“ My music journey began while I was still in high school and since then I have grown in this industry. I started singing in a group called Gentleguys but now I sing solo. I am so excited about this album and I hope that people enjoy it.
“I have worked really hard throughout because I wanted to make sure that I give my fans the best music,” he said.
Talking about his nomination, Jili said he feels honoured and excited.
