identity. The song also delved into Jenkinson’s experiences and hardships of his early
years in Papua New Guinea. Suffering from malaria, and close to death, he and his mother were forced to flee their home for New Zealand, where Enjalas was given
life-saving medical treatment.
‘Love Me’, which received radio play on Mai FM, Flava, Niu and the BNets, demonstrated the strength and depth of Jenkinson’s songwriting abilities and stood
his unique blend of rap and R’n’B out from the crowd. He followed it up with ‘Never Leave Ya’, which he released as part of a collaboration with OLYMPUS and Leilani.
Now Jenkinson is amped to reveal the next chapter in the Vallé project, which takes
its name from a combination of two of the most influential figures in Jenkinson’s life - Irish singer and songwriter Van Morrison and former US basketball star Allen Iverson. Van Morrison was his dad’s favourite artist and Allen Iverson triggered his love for the game of basketball; the sport that has shaped much of his life and friendships.
On June 7, Vallé will reveal the first single, ‘Pluto' feat. Sianne, from his upcoming debut album CARE FOR ME. Self-penned and produced by Struan Finlay AKA Sun Lay, ‘Pluto’ is an audio snapshot of a dysfunctional couple struggling with trust and commitment.
Vallé is here and about to make his mark!
