Outside of J3TZINE, I do a fair bit! I recently finished my degree in French with Mandarin at the University or Warwick. I began my artistic journey making music, specifically as a vocalist performing under the name J3TSY. Since then, I have gathered experience working with costume, production and camera departments in the television industry, most recently on a BBC-commissioned drama show, and I've written a stage play which saw its maiden performance (and my directorial debut) in late 2021. I also enjoy writing poetry and prose, and hope to marry this with my experience working with other media to create my own screenplays in due course.
Bonjour! Hola! Hi! I'm Ben Timi Nuga, Founder and Editor in chief of J3TZINE.
I created J3TZINE, in 2021, to be a platform for creatives across all disciplines to be celebrated in a common space. My own path as an artist took off in the summer of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. I quickly learned how difficult it can be to gain exposure as an independent creator, and after noticing that there were many gifted people in the same predicament, I was inspired to create this publication to try and work to change that, even if in a small way. J3TZINE has grown to become a publication which showcases the talent and stories of those who I collaborate with in an artistic capacity, and more widely those whose work I personally admire.
I hope that my readers, watchers and listeners will enjoy engaging with the crafts of the contributors as much as I do. Some are experts in their fields, whilst others are at the beginning of their journeys, but all are talented and have touched or inspired me in some way!
Have a browse, and take a look around. You might just find your new favourite singer, actor, artist or fashion brand!
