Her inability to advance in her music career was because she and her team were novices in the industry.

She took a break to learn more about music and set up her personal business to support her music career.

Jayana announced her comeback into the music space when she was signed on to DAVEJOY Music Records in December 2018 [Record label owned Joyce Blessing’s Husband] and released a new song titled VICTORY in 2019 featuring Joyce Blessing.
