Jeys Marabini Is Now A Well Established Musician
Published: 11 November 2014 | by Thulani Nkala

Jeys Marabini is the best musician to emerge from kwaGodlwayo, Bulawayo and from the country as a whole. His humble beginnings are amazing, born in Fibausi Insiza District at a Village called Enyoni. Jeys Marabini’s real name is Majahawodwa Ndlovu. He started his musical journey singing Imbube/acapella.

Jeys Marabini is the 7th born in a family of 9 boys. The road to fame and stardom was not easy “it took me a long time to even convince my parents, particularly my father that I wanted to be a musician as my parents wanted me to do traditional professions such as medicine and teaching” Jeys explained his challenges.

With perseverance, sheer grit determination and dedication Jeys Marabini managed to assemble a band and bit by bit acquired instruments. Even after that his parents were still not convinced that he had chosen the right career, it was only when Jeys Marabini was invited to tour India for one and a half months that his parents started to mellow and accept his chosen profession, his father even accompanied him to the airport.

It is a great shame that Jeys Marabini’s parents tragically passed away in a car accident, however, they still play a pivotal role in his life, in his album Jeys@40 he wrote and sang a song dedicated to his parents called Ukufa, which he says is a very emotional song, which touches people’s emotional states as it speaks to many people’s realities.

Jeys Marabini first released his album in 2002, it was called Emarabini, and this is where his name Jeys Marabini emanated from. In 2004 he produced a hot album called Thuthukani Ngothando, and toured South Africa upon its release.

He has also, together with his band, released 5 more albums, namely, Sounds of Today and tomorrow; One Time; Izenzo-recorded in South Africa and featured Coyte; Jeys@40 and his latest hottest album is called Silo, where he sings about his father and also mentions chief Vezi Maduna kaDambisamahubo. He has produced a video which looks like it was done in Filabusi most probable Enyoni. Those who grew up in rural areas will love this video as it will take them back to their humble beginnings, the real life, it invokes nostalgic memories.

Jeys Marabini has proven his creativity and staying power, but above all his versatile talent, as he is an all-rounder, he worked as a music promoter, he plays instruments, he writes his songs and he is an amazing singer.

Jeys Marabini has toured the breadth and length of the country and has toured Europe, very soon he will be in Austria, doing what is he is best known for, that is playing ingoma.

Sikwethulela isigqoko mdaka omnyama, Godlwayo onembeko. Mahlabyithwale.
