On a post on his official twitter account he said "Covid has pushed me to the edge, Iam done with this music thing!!! Wacha nitafute hustle ingine damn!!!! "
It appears that covid has really messed with the economy that even artists are giving up on their careers 😰
His stage name Jua Cali, is derived from California, an estate in Nairobi (as is the name of Calif Records). It also resembles Jua Kali, a Swahili term meaning fierce sun, which has been taken to refer to Kenya's informal sector of the economy.
