JazziQ Drops His Much Anticipated Album Dedicated To His Late Friends. Tumelo
Manyoni known professionally as Mr JazziQ, is a South African Amapiano DJ and record
producer. He is best known for being a former member of the amapiano DJ duo, JazziDisciples.

The star dropped a new album titled ‘All You Need Is Piano’ which he shared is a dedication to his late friends. “I want the album rollout to be what we plan it to be, and still celebrate those who left too soon. I am here today and remember my grandmother’s words about losing people. I hope people will enjoy and receive it will because it is a beautiful album if I have to say so
myself,” he says.

What makes this new project even more special is that, while working on it, he got a chance to mourn and process his multiple losses of friends in the industry and outside it. It was the first time he got to deal with the reality that his friends are no more, he admits.


“This is the first that I get to a point where I could talk about my late friends. It is a year since their passing and it hasn’t been easy because I have lost other friends while trying to mourn them.”

When he heard of Mpura, Killer Kau, TD, TOT and Green’s passing in August he says he felt
the music stop and felt the shocking realisation of his own mortality sink in. The star shared that he didn’t go outside for seven days.

“It was a dark moment in my life because I lost friends whom I work closely with and genuinely loved. Mpura played an instrumental role in the way that we create music and, every time I was working with him, he brought out the best in me. So losing such a friend put me in a depressing state. And I couldn’t attend their funerals because I was in Ghana at the time,” he said.
