It is with great pleasure this week that we introduce to you ‘Jackie Queens’ on the Sho!Mag ‘Spot Light’. As usual we have our weekly ‘low-down’ and for the past few weeks we noticed Deejays got all the ‘Spot Light’. This week we switch things up and bring to you ‘Jacke Queens’. Fresh with a banging single titled ‘Mwanangu’ and also a collaborative ‘EP’ titled ‘Women Of House’ . Also nominated in the ‘Best Female Vocalist Of The Year Category’ of the ‘Dance Music Awards South Africa’ to be held later this year. Ladies and Gentlemen, she goes by the name ‘Jackie Queens’ and we welcome you to it…
Sho!Mag: Before everything goes down, let us thank you for taking some time out of your busy schedule for this ‘one on one’. A lot of us might be wondering. Who is Jackie Queens and where is she from?
Jackie Queens: I am a yummy mummy of one gorgeous boy, singer, songwriter and serial collaborator. Born in Zimbabwe, now honorary daughter of South Africa!
Sho!Mag: How did it all start for ‘Jackie Queens’? By that I mean how did you get into the music industry? Was it something you always wanted to do and are you from a musical family?
Jackie Queens: I used to sing a lot growing up but it was never something I thought to pursue until my mid twenties. It started out, as most things do with me, chasing something I’ve always wanted to do. Only in the past year or so have I decided to take it more seriously in terms of thinking about it as a career. I wouldn’t say I’m from what is traditionally known as a musical family, but I can say we have the inclination.
Sho!Mag: ‘Jackie Queens’, what is it that you do in the music industry? Are you a singer, music producer or a deejay?
Jackie Queens: I sing, write and executive produce passion projects centred on women in music.
