Elusive musician Jai Paul spotted…. in property development!

He’s building an HQ for a new musical project with his brother A.K Paul and collaborator Muz Azar.

The most elusive man in music, Jai Paul, has been spotted trading in his trademark fez for a builder’s hard hat.

Despite having a mere two verified tracks to his name - 2011’s ‘BTSTU’ and ‘Jasmine’, plus that very much unverified Bandcamp record - he’s become an infamous figure, with his debut album nowhere to be seen. Here at DIY, Jai’s set a new record for time spent in our Neu artists’ section.

Anyway, it would appear he’s - yet again - up to something. He has been pictured at the former BBC Television Centre in West London with his brother A.K Paul and collaborator Muz Azar. According to Property Week, the trio have bought property on the site, and are currently building an HQ for their ‘new’ project the Paul Institute.

It’s not the first time Jai’s mentioned such a thing. Back in 2016, Jai Paul and brother A.K Paul announced something called the Paul Institute for the first time, before releasing a couple of tracks through it. He also hired at intern for the project last year. Not that they bothered to explain the concept, or anything at any point - nope, they just set up a virtually blank website asking for phone numbers. The only hint came from a tiny clue on page named ‘Work With Us’. “If you have a passion for the arts and technology, or have a special skill you would like to let us know about, we would love to hear from you,” it read.

Anyway, it looks like Jai Paul and co. are setting up some kind of record label or strange creative endeavour. There you go, then.
