Committed Artists Group” which introduced him to theater (acting) his debut acting role was in the award winning SARAFINA and the popular “Stimela Sasezola” musical created by Mbongeni Ngema. JOOCY decided it was time for a new challenge when the embarked on a journey searching for a record label where he could unleash his ultimate music potential. DJ Tira did not overlook his talent, he put him together with Afro Pop group “Afrosoul”, and together they released their debut album under Afrotainment.

Unfortunately, Afrosoul dispersed and JOOCY stayed put at AFROTAINMENT helping create numerous hits for fellow stable mates. His biggest hit to date was the smash “I Won’t Let You Go” featured on DJ Tira’s Ezase Afro Vol.1.
He was unstoppable with his melodic vocals when he wrote and recorded “Ngisemathandweni” featured on DJ CNDO’s Finest Lady Of House, which helped define and solidify Durban sound.
More internal collaborations followed with the likes of Big NUZ, and Fisherman. He finally released his debut solo album titled “Definition Of Soul” in 2011 and the 15-track album comprised of dance songs, Afro pop and slow jams.
