Profile Information

Name
Jahcub and the Chosenones
About Me
16 piece reggae orchestra based in Copenhagen

From the age of 10, Jahcub rehearsed every day with his father, Major Abraham Emaku and his band, filling his family’s living room with Afemai Highlife music until deep into the night. When Jahcub turned 20 years old, he formed his first sixteen-piece band in Lagos, Nigeria called, ‘The Reggae Magicians,’ which later became known as ‘The Chosenones’. Having learned from by Fela Kuti and Majek Fashek, Jahcub later moved his band to London, as well as India, and finally (2014) Denmark to continue with The Chosenones

Having crossed continents, Jahcub (Nigeria) ’s music has organically elevated reggae music beyond what it was to an entirely new understanding. Remaining true to his vision: refusing to cut down the number of people in his band or compromise in any kind of way that would touch the music’s’ essence, currently Jahcub and the Chosenones form an 18-piece band. They blaze the stage with a horns section, string trio, two keyboards, three guitars, percussion section, drums, bass, and singers. At present, the band is working on their ‘Humanity’ album, which is set to record in April at the biggest studio of Scandinavia.
As God is the essential inspiration of his music, listening to Jahcub and the Chosenones takes you on a divine musical journey with songs carved out of the trials and triumphs of the everyday man. Jahcub knows there is a problem in this world but believes the solution is out there, and just as the problem is with us, the solution lies there as well. The lust for money has replaced man’s morals, creating division within humanity. Morals, however, are our weapons against that which has misled us from ‘living’ into ‘existing.’ In Jahcub’s music, you therefore hear preaching of love, togetherness, peace, forgiveness, respect for one another, respect for elders, perseverance, determination, and freedom of the mind, equipping you with a positive frame of mind to face the trials of tomorrow.
