In 2001 JAGWA got the opportunity to write a song ‘Jamaica’ for Alozade which was recorded on the Martial Arts rhythm. ‘Jamaica’ became a hit and the skills JAGWA had to offer finally became noticed by the rhythm producer Cordel ’Skatta’ Burrell who immediately recruited him as an exclusive song writer.
This collaboration led to JAGWA writing songs for artistes such as Shabba Ranks, Bounty Killer, Elephant Man, Merciless, Harry Toddler and Cecile just to name a few.
It wasn’t long before Bounty Killer picked up on JAGWA’s talents and he was welcomed by the self proclaimed ‘Grung Gaad’ into the then Alliance family.
The 2004 hit ‘Guinness By The Case’ finally catapulted JAGWA into the mainstream limelight where he received the recognition and respect he truly worked for and deserved.
Jagwa's current project, 'Chinese Food The EP', is underway with the lead single Chinese Food already released. Jagwa's reference to the Asian Cuisine is purely metaphorical with the definition of Chinese Food being, "Music prepared by a specific set of people from a specific region but only supported and consumed by people from a totally different part of the world. Also relating to the day to day struggle and journey of those trying to make it in the music industry, encouraging them to pursue their dreams regardless of the obstacles they face." Jagwa has since collaborated with international artist and famous Dblock/The Lox member Styles P on the Chinese Food remix which was recently released. Jagwa has also collaborated with other International acts on the EP which is slated to be released early 2017.
