https:// youtu.be/3RNmomx2X70


MAJE is a Canadian songwriter, performer, and entrepreneur. He gained recognition in 2015 when he entered and won the $10,000 1st place award in a songwriting competition put on by Music Nova Scotia based on the Black activist Viola Desmond.

In early 2016 he released a music video for the Cunny Ross collaboration record “Smile” which was much appreciated because it shone light on Black fathers spending quality time with their daughters. The video was entered in the CBC Searchlight competition and made it to the top 10 in the region. Later that year he released his first short film “Outhome”. Based on where he was raised (East Preston) the film includes the previously released record ETTG, and vivid descriptions of his current emotion and career direction.

In May of 2017, he was one of 10 Canadian artists chosen to attend the SOCAN Songwriting camp as a part of the ECMA`s award weekend. In that same month, he covered The Coast magazine to highlight his performance at OBEY. MAJE also received 6 nominations from The Coast “Best of Halifax“ awards including `best solo artist` and most likely to `make it big`. On June 29th he released his first digital release mixtape *Insert Flame Emojis Here* on Soundcloud and it has since been nominated for 2 awards including “Video of the Year” by Music Nova Scotia.

2018 was a performance-filled year including Residencies with The T-Room (Dal), The Wardroom (King’s), A school tour, Jazz Fest, ECMAs, NS Music Week, as well as an invitation to Gordie Sampson Songwriting Camp.

In 2019 MAJE was selected to attend an Artist residency at LVRN in Atlanta, Georgia. He followed that up by winning another artist competition with a $20,000 prize (Casino Nova Scotia X Music Nova Scotia). Since then he’s been keeping a low profile and focusing on building up his brand as an artist and much more.
