I am coming with magic sound - Jojobaby

Fast-rising music star, Christian Joshua Daberechi, popular as Jojobaby has just been evicted from the popular Nigerian Idol musical contest.

The ongoing music reality show unearths some of the best musical talents the country has to offer. 

After being evicted from the show, he told news outlets that he would build on the experience garnered at the show to take his music career to the level that would excite many music lovers. 

The singer, while speaking about the dimension he intends to take his career to, described his exit from the show as a blessing in disguise, saying that he has picked up his craft from where he left off.

He appears to be in good shape as he was welcomed with a new recording deal by Dream Music Group and a single, entitled ‘Depth’, which according to him was a step in the right direction and a move that would put an end to his struggling days as a music artiste. 

The Imo State-born singer started singing in the choir and said he was inspired by football star, Christian Ronaldo because he is a dedicated footballer. He picked American music star, Chris Brown as his mentor in music. He revealed that he sang like Chris Brown when he was in the choir.

Jojobaby said he kicked off his career before he joined the reality show but was happy to have added the experience to his craft. “I am happy with the experience on Idols but the journey has just begun for me. With my new single 'Depth' and recording deal that I never expected would happen, I can tell you that the music industry is about to see the best of me. I am coming with magic sound, striking lyrics, and good vibes that the world would love to hear. So I am ready.”
