Mokbase Artiste Of The Month: JOEBOY

Banku music talented singer Joseph Akinfewa Donus alias Joeboy is our Mokbase Artiste Of The Month For October. The name Joeboy rings a bell in Nigeria when you mention the musical composition ‘My Baby’ which has become a street anthem already.

Joeboy is one of the sundry artistes that benefited from the Mr Eazi #Empawa100 project that visually perceived the artiste pledge $300,000 to empower 100 elevating African artistes. Joeboy may have been a hustling artiste afore crossing paths with Nigerian artiste Mr. Eazi and his #Empawa100 project. Even when he is still figuring the music industry, he is keen to take the African continent by storm.

The versatile singer with music genre of Afropop and RnB, studied human resources at the University Of Lagos, and recorded his first afrobeat tune "Gbeseyin" at age 17. The artiste stated that he met Mr Eazi after a friend sent him a video doing a cover of Ed sheeran's "shape of you" and he liked it. His first release under Empawa came in 2018 and was tagged "Faaji". Followed by his viral smash hits "Baby" and "Beginning" which have been warmly received since release with over "2.8 and 1 million views" each on the videos. This came alongside is "Bars" E.P.

For the first time, Joeboy earned a nomination for "Viewers choice" and "Song of the year" at the 23th Headies Award.
There are a few months left afore 2019 comes to an end, it is with much exuberance that we look forward to what Joeboy in collaboration with his label would accommodate. Most importantly an album from the singer is very much expected and while we wait, many cheers to a king.
