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.

In 2019, the government of Ghana made a global splash with its Year of Return initiative – the campaign sought to encourage the African diaspora to return home to the continent, specifically to Ghana.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
