The Cape Town-born musician Jimmy Nevis joined Martin Bester telephonically from his home in the Western Cape. 

Breakfast with Martin Bester tried to guess who Nevis is in lockdown with and they were all wrong! 

The talented musician performed the popular '7764' on #StayAtHomeLive. Interestingly '7764' is the area code for Athlone where he grew up.

With the country in national lockdown, Jimmy Nevis has a special gift for his fans as he drops his first single for 2020 and reveals the powerful track ‘Hey Jimmy’, his first release.

Since dominating the South African music charts in 2012 at the age of 20 with his smash hit single ‘Elephant Shoes’, Jimmy Nevis has become a much-loved household name in his native country.

Born and raised in the suburb of Athlone in Cape Town, he has since solidified his status with a string of other country-wide No.1 singles such as ‘Heartboxing’, ‘Balloon’, ‘7764’ and his collaborations with Kwesta, Mi Casa, Karen Zoid and most recently U.S. DJ Max Styler. 

Jimmy released his most recent album in May 2018, so fans have been waiting almost 2 years for new solo material!

“The song is a reminder to myself, my fans and the world that Jimmy Nevis is back, bolder and stronger than ever. The verses are written from actual words that my fans would tell me whilst the pre-chorus is a reminder of what Jimmy Nevis means to me - being strong, authentic and creative,” and the song for Jimmy is not just a song for himself. “Even though this song is about my life, it's for the fans! I hope it makes you dance your ass off no matter where you are. “
