Filipino born Nenaya Jazmine (Nnennaya Onyirimba) was ushered into this world by the divine grace of God. She certainly benefited from having a diplomat for a father and a stunning fashion forward business woman for a mother. Originally from Arochukwu, Abia state, Nigeria, Nenaya Jazmine had lived in and visited over 10 countries before her 16th birthday. She grew up in the Philippines, South Korea, Japan and Israel. Only having the opportunity to live in Nigeria for 3 years at a time in between postings. She is especially fond of the Japanese culture and confesses that this is where she developed her curiosity for the arts and creativity.
Her pursuit into music hasn’t been an easy journey and in fact Nenaya Jazmine hit a major road block when she lost her father in 2000. Flash-forward 10 years and the singer would stumble across a 57 second music video while doing a test shoot with her pal. This 57 second clip features one of Nenaya Jazmine’s unfinished and unnamed songs. She eventually titled the unfinished song as “Cloud Nine” and shared the video with friends online in August of 2010. Overwhelmed with the positive feedback of “Cloud Nine” Nenaya Jazmine was inspired to work on what would be her first official single which is ironically and was originally named “Cloud Nine”.
Now referred to as “Cloud Nine (Official)” , the track was initially written in 2008 and completed in September, 2010 and features a 4 minute music video. The video was shot in Worcester, Massachusetts and features fellow Nigerian Paul Ajuonuma who is the brother to the sensational and highly sought after disk jockey known as DJ Obi. The 57 second music video clip is now called “Cloud Nine (Interlude)”.
The track “Cloud Nine (Official)” is composed by Nenaya Jazmine and produced by Felix Afutu who hails from Ghana. Felix Afutu is an unknown yet emerging cinematographer who is well versed in beat making. This unprecedented combination makes for great visual effects that are very well coordinated with his music.
Nenaya Jazmine not only makes her musical debut but also makes her directorial debut in the music video to “Cloud Nine (Official)” and is working on her first musical album which will be entitled “The Reinvention of I”. Afutu Media in conjuction with Avant-Garde Entertainment will be presenting the album in the near future. Stay tuned.
