I am Emihle Jaxa, also known as Ruby Jax which is my stage name. I’m a singer/vocalist from Cape Town in Nyanga.

What are your earliest memories of music?

Haha, I remember back in primary school I used to travel by a private transport, our driver used to play us music everyday, LITERALLY! In the morning and the afternoon, all genres, I used to know almost every song and I remember when my friends at home used to ask me where I know all the songs from, but that time I was more into the American sound.


Where do you draw your inspiration from?

For me, inspiration comes from people. People around me, people I idolize, people I look up to, people from who I want to embrace some qualities.

Cassper Nyovest inspires me to always believe in myself, visualize my goal, and work for it, always ignoring the naysayers.


What style of music are you into?

Firstly, the kinda music I do is actually a mixture of RnB and soul, I sometimes call it trap-soul.. it’s not actually my specific genre, but it’s what people have heard so far.

The kind of music I do allows me to express myself and my feelings.


What can we expect from you in the near future?

Expect the unexpected! Expect the bigger and better me.


What makes you stand out?

Well.. my personality allows me to fall into any genre of music.. there’s not much that separates me from other artists cause we are all talented in our own way.


Do you have any specific goals you’ve set for yourself?

I have plenty of goals! My specific one is to have a successful music career.


Any artists you would like to work with?

Definitely! I’d love to work with Black Coffee, DJ Maphorisa, KLY.. I have plenty of artist I’d like to work with but I can’t think of all of them right now.


Do you have interests outside music?

I always wanted to be an entrepreneur, my own boss.. however I’m considering starting my own business but I still haven’t decided what kind of a business yet.


Music over everything or do you believe in a Plan B?

Plan B! I believe there should always be a plan b especially when you’re in the music business, this industry is tricky, things might not always go your way, you might not be relevant for a long time, it’s very easy to fall off.. I observed the music industry for way too long. I’m planning to study part time too.
