He attended Ainsworth Primary School (Standards 1 to 6); Shepherds Junior Buruburu (Standards 6 to 8); Jamuhuri High School and eventually Kenya Christian Industrial Training Institute (K.C.I.T.I) Eastleigh where he received a diploma in Information technology.

There, he played basketball with ambitions to make it to the Kenyan National Basketball Team.

He never made it in the team, blaming this on his height. His earlier foray into music included singing in a band called ‘Sita Futi’. Sita Futi disbanded almost as soon as it was started leaving behind Jua Cali and his close friend Jemmoh.

The departing group members left to pursue careers outside music. Calif Records came into being after Jua Cali teamed up with childhood friend Clemo to form the record label that quickly became a hit factory, gaining prominence in the East Africa music scene with chart topping artists and music. 

Calif Records also invented the Genge genre of Kenyan hip hop. Jua Cali often cites his brother, Chris, and his parents as his greatest influences in life.He is also related to dell xerxes as his brother in law

Music career

His first recorded track was Ruka, released in 2001, and was followed by Nipe Asali in 2002. In 2004 he collaborated with Pilipili in track “Kamata Dame”. Like most Kenyan artists, it took several years before his first full album was released. His album “Juacali Sekta” reached the stores in 2006, containing mostly previously released singles.

His single Kwaheri (featuring Sainapei Tande-winner Coca-Cola pop star and radio presenter) was a major hit in Kenya in 2007.

 At the New Year’s Eve 2008/2009 he released a new album, Ngeli ya Genge. He has toured the US and other countries. In August 2007, he was among 100 most influential Kenyans as selected by The Standard newspaper.

His stage name Jua Cali, is derived from California, an estate in Nairobi (as is the name of Calif Records). It also resembles Jua Kali, a Swahili term meaning fierce sun, which has been taken to refer to Kenya’s informal sector of the economy.

He has released a series of new songs with a new producer Keggah based in the United States. His new songs include Karibu Nairobi and Kuna Sheng which have both received massive airplay and good reviews.

Endorsements

Besides being talented, he’s a commercial success, thanks to his appeal to the young and the not-so-young alike. For instance, he became Kenya’s first artiste to get an endorsement deal when in 2007 he signed a reported Sh1-million-a-year deal with mobile phone giant Motorola for its W model.
And, according to the company, he was quite a catch. ” Jua Cali is part of the Motorola family, and we are honored to have worked with him in the recent past,” says Joanne Doyle, the marketing manager for East Africa. “He has been a great ambassador and, like Motorola, he is all about creativity, style, and substance, so we could not be happier that his hard work has been recognized at the prestigious Kisima awards.

Albums:

  • JuacaliSekta (October 2006:)
  • Ngeli ya Genge (December 2008)
  • TuGenge Yajayo(December 2013)
  • Mali Ya Umma (September 2019)
