Ghanaian musician JaGa has said he is hoping to cause a stir on the music scene this year with his latest single.
Born Michael Mensah, JaGa is not a new face in industry. He has been flirting with the music industry for quite some time and was part of the Hiplife revolution in the mid-90s.

He teamed up with a childhood friend along the way to form a music group called North Rydaz. The group never released an album; however it managed to make waves with a few singl
es it released, especially ‘Wo feeli’, a song which got airplay on GBC Radio back then. The song also earned the group a performance spot on Agoro TV show which was broadcast on GTV.
After some time, the two separated to pursue other interests. JaGa went ahead to do other things including completing a bachelor’s degree at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
After all these years, he decided to bounce back on the music scene. So last year, he made a return with the release of a four-track mixtape titled ‘Testing Mic’. The mixtape was exclusively released and promoted on the internet; yet some of the songs made their way on a couple of radio stations in Ghana. ‘Hot Gals’, one of the songs on the mixtape, found its way on New York-based internet radio ClubHiplife’s top 100 most-played songs in October last year.
JaGa said he planned to release a second pre-album mixtape before the end of the year and was currently busy in the studio working on the eight-track project which would feature artistes like Stay Jay, Bradez, Cabum and Louisika.
‘Let’s Roll’, the first single from his sophomore mixtape which he titled ‘Getting’ Ready’, is due for release next week.
“You know I’ve kept so long in the oven so you should expect some real hot stuff from me,” he said.
When asked about the future, he stated that he believed he had a great future in Ghana music. “So everyone should watch out for me,” he added.
