Juacali retires from music?

Paul Julius Nunda aka Juacali (born 12 September 1979),the renown kenya hip-hop artist has officially retired from his music career.

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.

He has released a series of new songs with a new producer Keggah based in the United States. His new songs include, Karibu Nairobi and Kuna Sheng which have both received massive airplay and good reviews.
