“I agreed to do this after finding a lot of my music on Portuguese and Spanish mixes here in the U.S.A. and in Brazil.

J.Whyson said he worked with some of best producers in Kizomba/ Zouk music including Arkadiusz Zabost popularly known as Areck Crashu from Poland.
Other includes DJ-Oda Semedo from Cape Verde, popularly known for Taraxinha, Zouk, Konmpa and Kizomba Producer and a Portuguese producer known as Willy Semedo- a popular artist in South America and most Portuguese speaking countries.
J.Whyson said he has also worked with a Zambian born but American raised ‘Dwani’ who has been signed up by Def Jam Records. He said he has also worked with Tevi Lawson, a French Zouk artist from Togo.
“I am taking a lot of sweet melodies from different Kizomba and Zouk geniuses on my new album ‘This is it. With this new project I am setting a new tone for myself and those who will come after me,” he said.
He said he has managed to break into a new circle and was optimistic that his influence in his area of music was making a huge difference because it was assisting in moving Zambian Kizomba forward.
His two singles ‘Nakuyewa’ and ‘Mambala’ are currently enjoying massive airplay from various radio stations.
