Jovial Biography: Music Journey
“My earliest musical influence was my mother. I used to admire her when she was singing in the church choir and this is how she inspired me to start singing. As a single mother, she used to sing whether in high or low spirits and it consoled her. As they say, music soothes the soul. It still comforts me even as I mourn her loss. Music gives me the strength to face another day.

Style of Music

Jovial Biography: Lessons she has learned from the Music Industry
“In this music industry, I have learned that not everyone who purports to help has the best of interest or intention in their hearts. Some will use you for their benefits or support their agendas. I have learned to choose my friends wisely and being careful. Of course, I have made many new friends and hope to make even many more and through this, create more good music.
“My plan is to pursue my music career to the fullest. I am glad I have such a wonderful team working with me and we plan to release more hits and collaborate with more artists in the future. I must admit though, it’s not easy starting as an artist in the music industry, good music certainly isn’t cheap to record and produce.
