Musician Professor Jay unwell, colleagues ask for financial support
Tanzanian singer Ambwene Yessayah better known as AY has appealed to the public to support fellow musician Joseph Haule alias Professor Jay who is currently admitted in hospital.
Sharing on his socials, AY says Professor Jay has been ailing for a while and is responding to treatment.
“Our brother has been unwell for three weeks and is under treatment at Muhimbili hospital,” said AY.
AY, known for hits such as Touch Me and Miniral hits adds that Professor Jay is spending Tsh 4 million (about Sh200,000) a week in medical expenses and is in need of financial support.
“The family is yet to formally ask for help in this matter. But it is our responsibility to help because he is our colleague and one of us having entertained us for more than two decades,” said AY.
Besides his entertainment career, Professor Jay of the Nikusaidiaje hit joined politics in 2015 after he was elected Member of Parliament Mikumi constituency.
He later lost the seat in 2020 to his opponent Denis Lazaro of Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).
Since then not much has been heard from him.
