It was the late Poxi Presha who gave Jaguar the first opportunity to perform on a public stage in Embu.

“I remember him telling me that ‘As long as you are making steps to improve every day, you will eventually be one of the best out there.’ His statement motivated me to go back to the studio and recorded a new song which enabled me to perform alongside him in Embu the same year which was a big milestone in my career,” narrated Jaguar.

Unfortunately after the struggle with tuberculosis, Poxi passed away,” narrated Jaguar.
