Rapper Bouqui is one lucky lady. The artist just announced the discovery of three young sisters born and raised in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom. They are really talented and sure to resonate with the growing youth culture in Nigeria.
“Triple J Plus are Nigeria’s freshest and hottest music talents, coming out with a loud bang and enough force to grab a slot on the charts, and a residency in our hearts.
Why has Nigeria’s only female Gospel rapper Bouqui been quiet these past months? The reason is finally coming to (the forefront) as she announced early this week that she has discovered three talented sisters. J.T (Jemima Abel Damina), J.P (Jesimel Precious Abel Damina) and J.J (Jewel Precious Abel Damina) are the new kids on the block ready to take the music industry and the entire Nigerian community by storm. At an exclusive media briefing and buffet held this week to introduce
the trio, an excited Bouqui who has been known for her unique brand of gospel and inspirational Hip-Hop stated, (exclaimed) “The girls are so talented! There is nothing as fulfilling as finding and nurturing new talents and watching them rise to fame.”
Bouqui’s new girls are three sisters known as Triple J Plus. The oldest of the sisters is J.T who was born in 1994. She is an
intending freshman at Oral Roberts University, USA and likes dancing cooking and traveling. J.P on the other hand is 15 years old. Her hobbies include singing, basketball and creative arts. The youngest is 8 years old J.J who likes drawing, making friends and dancing. The colour she likes most is red.
BOUQUI took to the sisters after she was floored by their raw talent, energy, passion and dedication, talents she has promised us we will enjoy in the weeks to come. Her involvement (with the girls) will be no surprise to her long time fans who have known the rapper for dipping her feet in new territories and immersing herself in new challenges. As a young child BOUQUI
discovered her passion for music and in her teens formed the all female group, G-VIBES. She also branched into broadcasting by presenting on Eko FM.
Two years after the release of her first album, Bouqui released her second album, ‘Redefinition,’ which further cemented her as one of the most bankable female acts in the country. Her first single ‘Mo ri le’ was an instant hit which was followed up by another successful single ‘Take You Away.’ An energetic live performer, the rapper went on the road and toured extensively in the UK, US and Nigeria in 2009 and the better half of 2010. Now, she’s taking time off her crazy schedule to present Nigerians a worthy gift; three amazing gifted sisters for the prize of one.
Born and raised in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom, Nigeria. Triple J Plus have known music for a long time and are usually of the notion that music for them is inbuilt. “We have known music for as long as we can recall, but it officially took its shape and call last year” said 16 year old J.T. “We were a part of a music competition organized by AKBC in Uyo three years ago, where we came 4th, added JP. We are sure our music will cut across the younger generation as we pass across message that they can
relate to.” BOUQUI’s main focus is on developing and nurturing Triple J Plus into a full-fledged act that can stand the test of time. The trio of sisters is more than itching to show the world what they have. Expect to hear their chart-topping singles very soon. In a matter of weeks expect the promising girls act to release their first singles to the general public.
“We are here to ignite a desire to embrace wholesome lyrics in place of the (Gibberish) that constitutes most modern-day pop music,” JT concludes.
Interestingly, the youngest of the trio Jeiel was before now already “popular” and in the news. Two years ago, she was kidnapped by militants on her way to school (on Thursday June 19, 2008). They kept her for eight days, and finally released her after government intervention.
“It was a really terrible experience” The soft spoken 8 year old says. But her sisters say the family has put the event behind them.”
