“The Wandering Moon”

right from his childhood loved music, he used to make his mother worry a lot because whenever he was sick and in bed, he would move his legs back and forth making music beats in his head yet the mum would think that his condition was worsening. She would do anything to make sure that he was all right yet El Nai knew what he was doing,

This dream kept growing until when he got a little older and started dancing in church Sunday school which later gave him the big picture of his music Carrier, he was part of his primary school Brass band from 2002 – 2005. He was also hired partly sometimes to play in the Uganda police brass band (Arua Branch). The Trumpet was his major instrument in the band though he could play others too.

He also started playing the guitar (Acoustic) in the same year (2002) and that became a catalyst to inspiring him to consider music seriously.

Early Life
His Full Names are Elnai James Juma, He was born in 1990, in the war torn region of Sudan in a small town called Ri- Rungu in Yambio City the now capital state of Western Equaroria State bothering Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo. His father worked in Ri- Rungu hospital as a medical doctor treating sleeping sickness patients. He however, died when El Nai was only 8 months old and El Nai was named after him.

And as a young child , El Nai didn’t understand why he didn’t have a father like the rest of his friends until when his eyes opened somehow. According to him, his mum was everything. The civil war kept his Educational graph in a zip zap manner and therefore, he was on and off school all the time due to abrupt wars.

El Nai also survived becoming a Child Soldier several times because of his mother who tried to do everything to protect him. He didn’t also get the chance to meet his older brothers who also fled the country to the neighboring Congo DRC and CAR for refuge when he was only a baby and thus making him the only boy at home. And after fleeing the Sudan in a way that he even Couldn’t understand, he spent more than a decade he saw his monther and siblings again......tears rolling down my cheeks, I cant do this, let the Music play!
