Music’s worst-kept secret, Joeboy is the Nigerian song star that is set to take over the international stage. An Afropop artist who’s on a mission to shift the landscape of music with his flair for infectious melodies, Joeboy took a co-sign from fellow Afrobeats star, Mr Eazi and never looked back – crafting a stellar career that has seen the release of multiple popular songs since his breakout single ‘Baby.’
Topping music charts from Nigeria to the UK, since graduating from Mr Eazi’s #emPawa100 talent incubator programme, the Lagos State singer has blazed a trail that has seen him not only become one of the most exciting artists to watch, but also a voice of a generation. We caught up with Joeboy to discuss music, fashion and TikTok virality.
Joeboy, glad to speak with you. How are things going for you at the moment?
Same here! Well, things have been great generally. It’s been back-to-back new music from me and I’m loving the energy.
Your rise has been undeniable. Has it been everything you thought it would be?
I’ve always wanted to make music that everyone can connect with and that’s why I sing mostly about my life experiences. So far it’s been everything I thought it would be.
