On the Rise

On the Rise: Jess ETA

Jess ETA is staying in Balance with new EP

Nigerian musician Jess ETA released his EP Balance in September 2020, and since then has won the hearts of many, racking up a huge number of plays across streaming platforms. Although numbers continue to be a marker of success, this EP gains its triumph from its relatability. Featuring rising Nigerian musicians SGawD and Zarion Uti, Balance is a timeline of modern romance; the good the bad and the inevitable ugly.

For this on the Rise feature, Jesse breaks down each song on the EP. The creation process, the stories behind the songs as well as dishes some tips on 21st-century entanglements.
