News Brief

Watch J Molley Deliver a 4-Song Medley in the First Episode of ‘Unplugged Sessions’

The set includes an unreleased song.

J Molley's set with keyboardist Theofilluss on his Unplugged Sessions consists of four songs. The set consists of familiar songs from his latest EP Leader Of The Wave: A Playlist By J Molley, "Sinister," "Lightning" and "Shifted." He also performs an unreleased song titled "Shifted."


The singer and his keyboardist (who also doubles as a producer) strip the songs down to just bass, keys and rhythm. They maintain the same bassline and 808 drums as heard on the recorded songs. By so doing, they ensure the grit and texture of the songs as we know them is not lost.

Just like most of his peers, J Molley creates his own platforms. The performance is the first episode of a show called J Molley Unplugged Sessions. The artist has been sharing his journey and taking fans behind the scenes on his NeverBroke Daily show, which has been running since January of this year on YouTube.

J Molley is one of the country's fastest rising stars, and has proven his prowess multiple times with his EPs (Dreams Money Can Buy and Leader of the Wave), singles, performances and show-stealing guest appearances.

Watch the full performance below and revisit our interview with J Molley here.

We speak with the founder of Joy Inc. about the mental health challenges facing Nigerians, how many have managed to find effective ways to cope, and the online resources available to the community.

Never in our lifetimes have we experienced a pandemic of this gravity. As COVID-19 cases rise in Nigeria, Nigerians aren't just worried about getting the virus, they are also concerned about a host of other challenges: our lack of efficient and effective healthcare—which is overwhelmed even without a pandemic—the lack of appropriate data, and the high levels of poverty and illiteracy in the country that make it difficult to enforce the strategies that will enable us to handle the pandemic and keep it under control.

In a bid to understand how Nigerians are dealing with mental health challenges now, on the ground, due to the pandemic—which has led to a lockdown restricting movement and also social distancing rules—we spoke with Nigerian journalist, lawyer and mental healthcare advocate Chude Jideonwo, who is the founder of Joy Inc. He shared insights from his experiences with The Joy Inc., which he founded in 2016 to help young people going through mental and emotional challenges. He aimed to help provide young Nigerians with tools to help navigate the world around them.
