Rapper and politician Professor Jay bounces back from illness
Prof Jay, a Tanzanian rapper and politician, has made a comeback online following a protracted illness.

One year on, Prof Jay is back looking stronger and sharing his recovery journey with his social media followers.
“First of all, I want to thank God for healing me and giving me a second chance at life.

He also expressed his gratitude to all the government representatives that visited him both inside and outside of the hospital, as well as to Tanzania’s President, Her Excellency Dr. Samia Hassan Suluhu and her government, for paying his hospital cost.
Jay also expressed his gratitude to his compatriots and his family for providing him with financial and spiritual support prior to the government taking over all aspects of his care.
Many Tanzanian musicians and performers gave the man who created the Tanzanian hip-hop scene their support and assistance while he was in the hospital.
