She is the second daughter of the Late Bishop Dr. Augustine Annor-Yeboah, founder of the Christian Praise International Centre (CPIC).

“I’ve realized that in this industry I need to be determined and focused, and with the favour of God, I know that I can make it”

HER MUSIC JOURNEY

Born in Accra, Jayana’s musical career started at the age of ten [10] and she has since blossomed into a gem. Jemima believes that her talent is hereditary. Her father used to be a choir boy many years ago. She participated in the maiden edition of the Stars of the Future talent show, competing with the likes of Irene Logan, Jean now Efya, Ramzy Prince Amui, and others.

Jayana’s recording career after ‘Stars of the Future’ began on October 29, 2006, when she launched her maiden album, ‘Awurade Ani Wo Meso’ which was produced by Mr. Micheal Nti under Multi Trade Impex label.

Ewurade ani wo meso is a collection of soul-inspiring songs with titles, such as Abraham Nyame, Obarima Yesu, Onyame ho ye hu, Ma hwihwe no, and Wo tumi so. The album is categorized into three – prayer songs, worship songs and songs of praise. And these are meant to satisfy the diverse interest of gospel lovers.

JAYANA took a breather from the music scene after the Stars of the Future reality show in 2006. As one of the best contestants in Stars of the Future Reality Show much was expected from Jayana after the competition but she decided to take a break in music at a point. Her inability to advance in her music career was because she and her team were novices in the industry. She took a break to learn more about music and set up her personal business to support her music career.

Jayana announced her comeback into the music space when she was signed on to DAVEJOY Music Records in December 2018 [Record label owned Joyce Blessing’s Husband] and released a new song titled VICTORY in 2019 featuring Joyce Blessing.
