KwameJnr (Sax) is a Ghanaian based Gospel Jazz Musician who is steadily making waves in the industry. Francis Kwame Nsiah Junior is his birth name, but most people know him by his stage name, “KWAMEJnr (SAX).”
KWAMEJnr (SAX) was born into a Ghanaian Christian family and happens to be the last of five children. He had his formal education at Celestial School Complex inside Ashaiman, Official Town; thus from Nursery to Junior High School. After his JHS education, he got enrolled into Chemu Senior High School, where he had his Secondary Education as a day student, from 2007-2011. He was part of the four-year SHS school program, which is now no more.
Some few years after SHS, he took up a six month course in IT Hardware at Intercom Programming & Manufacturing College/Company (IPMC) in Tema. However, his love for music took over some years after.
KwameJnr (Sax) is into full time music as Gospel Jazz Musician. He is also the Music Director of “The Colours Band,” which is under Soul Train Incorporated. As a Gospel Jazz Musician in Ghana, he was recognized to represent Ghana in this year’s Gospel Jazz Evening Africa (GJEA 2016) in Osun State, Nigeria.
KwameJnr (Sax) decided to learn the SAX the moment he set eyes on one.
He says, “Upon hearing how sweet the melodies that came out of it sounded to the soul, I chose the SAX over all other instruments.”
Prior to this, KwameJnr (Sax) saw the SAX for the very first time in his dreams about 12 years ago, and knew immediately that this was part of Gods plans for him.
He continues, “Ever since I had that dream, my sole desire has been to learn the SAX although I was a trumpeter then. God being so good and ever faithful, there was a divine connection five years ago, and my dream became a reality.”
He was privileged to be taught by one of the best; Mr. Nat (AMADAA). It did not stop there; he made time to go online to learn more. This made him more effective and ahead of normal class lessons.
It is and has always been KwameJnr (Sax)’s wish to win more SOULS for CHRIST, and to feed and heal the broken hearted anytime he minister’s with his SAX. With the help of God his master teacher, he hopes to achieve this through the tender and melodic nature (sound) of the SAX.
He has ministered at many events and brought down the power and presence of God.
As a Saxophonist and Gospel Musician, he looks up to some Fathers in the ministry like Kirk Whalum, who is also a Gospel Jazz Musician. His influence in the Jazz music industry is great, and his love for the things of God is unquestionable.
His last words…
“My piece of advice to the general public and to the young and upcoming musician is this; always put God first in everything you do. Remain humble and also maintain good manners and ministerial ethics and public relation. I always say that your gift and potential can or will take you before Kings and great men, but your attitude will determine how far you will go with them.”
