Janine Elizabeth Cunningham (born 23 May 1983), better known as Jah9, is a Jamaican singer.
Jah9 was born in Montego Bay in Saint James, Jamaica. Her father was a Baptist minister and her mother was a teacher and social worker. She spent much of her childhood in FalmouthTrelawny. In 1991 the family moved to Kingston. After a period at the university she commenced realizing her musical passion. Her music is often described as "jazz on dub", because her singing voice is influenced by Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, partly combined with the dancehall sound of Sizzla and the more potent dub rhythms similar to those of Augustus Pablo.

Jah9 tackles the subject of pedophilia with "Unafraid". This artist is intellectually, spiritually and musically fearless.
