Jacob Nguni was born on November 22, 1956 in Hausa Quarters, Kumba as the fourth and last son of Cameroonian parents Pa Boniface Nguni ( First World War Veteran) and Antonia Nguni. The young Jacob was a lover of music but his talented as guitarist was first spotted in college at Form 2, by his classmates at St Joseph’s College Sasse, a prestigious catholic boy school located in the colonial town of Buea, Cameroon. He is known to have practiced ferociously until he could play the popular tunes of James Brown, Jimmy Cliff and the licks of popular Congolese guitarists Vata Mombasa, Ricos Kinzoga, Lipua Lipua and Bella Bella. He otherwise excelled in his studies. Against all odds and the wishes of his father, he decided to go professional and left college for Nigeria, where he had in no time joined and become lead guitar of Prince Nico Mbarga’s Rocafil Jazz band. A few years later he resurfaced as lead guitarist with the A.B Waza at a tender age of 19. The demo-tape of “Sweet Mother” was turned down by EMI in 1974, citing the song’s “childish appeal.” “Sweet Mother” was later also rejected by Decca Records and Philips Records, before it was eventually released in December, 1976, by Rogers All Stars, a Nigerian recording company based in Onitsha. The song is a celebration of motherhood, sung in Nigerian Pidgin English introducing a new age of West African high life with Congolese Soukous-style guitar finger-picking.

Jacob Nguni (22 November 1956 – 25 April 2015), nicknamed “Pa Jay” or “Micro-wave”, was a Cameroonian singer, high-life guitarist, activist, humorist whose partnership with late Prince Nico Mbarga as a lead guitarist produced songs like Sweet Mother that redefined the era of High-life music in Africa. The song would go on to become the Africa’s best selling song with 13 million copies. The song was equally voted in 2004 in a BBC poll as Africa’s favourite song. He died in his sleep in the late hours of Saturday 25 April 2015 in Washington D.C.
