My mother’s death inspired my career as a singer – Young Jonn

Music producer and singer, John Udomboso, popularly known as Young Jonn, has opened up on how his mother’s death spurred his switch from being a producer to a musician.

He disclosed the information while recalling how he was heartbroken by the loss in a recent interview with Nandi Madida on Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio.

Young Jonn claimed that he began spending more time alone in his studio, adding that he stopped producing for artists.

The “Aquafina” crooner revealed that he recorded a lot of songs but never used it or released it, so he decided to start doing so.

He said: “What really triggered that was back in 2017 when I lost my mum. I started spending so much time by myself. I was not turning up for my studio sessions or being in the studio with artistes, like I used to. So, I had so much music lying around, because I was recording so much. That period made me start putting out music, because I never really planned to do that.

“However, it feels so good and amazing. I feel blessed, regardless of what the outcome is. I never saw this coming, and I did not plan for it. I am releasing my debut album now, and it feels so surreal. The love has been crazy, since I started putting out music. A lot has happened in my life, and I feel so blessed, regardless of what anyone thinks.”
