Born Vincent Kaweng Nyam a.k.a. Jah Device or Device of AHAYAH (Hebrew word: I AM THAT I AM) is a Nigerian Reggae Musician, songwriter, and producer who is currently based in Jos (Nigeria). His rise to prominence came with the critically acclaimed Revive Justice song which was well received by the general public. This drew the attention of Germany’s Goethe Institute prompting his involvement in its Ten Cities Project. This collaborative effort gave birth to another hit song "Work" which featured renowned Nigerian percussionist Wura Samba and produced by legendary British producer Rob Smith. His versatility and crossover appeal was quite evident when the song became an instant hit in Europe and featured prominently on various European Dance Music charts.
Device’s style of reggae is often compared to that of the late great reggae music icon, Dennis Emmanuel Brown and perhaps the song that encapsulates that feel the most is "Enough Is Enough". This classic in the making marked the coming of age of Device. The songs thought provoking lyrical content mixed with melodic, harmonious lines, laced over pulsating live beats showcased what many have optimistically welcomed as the dawning of a new era for reggae music on the continent. It is also the lead song to the sound track of the Chibok Girls adoption documentary.
"Love And Sacrifice" Is a body of work that encapsulates the beliefs and the musical direction of Jah Device.
Device says "The love of The Most High is all we should seek in these times. And a sacrifice for the sanctity of the family cannot be over emphasised because the scripture says in Jeremiah 30:7... These are the days of Jacob's trouble".
