Jah Signal, born Nicodemus Mutize, mooted his musical career in 2011 with sing along tracks such as Honour Ladies. He has however popularised his brand with the signature tune, “Tirarira, Inini ndini ndarira.” Some of his popular songs include Mukwasha imboko, Yekedero, Dhora, Fashion Police, Cockroach, Ebube and Wakavingei. He has also done collaborations with Tocky Vibes and Dr Tawanda. His lyrics are inspired by his humble background as well as social issues that affect people’s day-to-day life experiences.
