Nigerian-born US-based singer, Jaajo has revealed that he recorded ‘Joro Joro’, his newly-released track, during his stay in Nigeria last year.
In an interview with journalists in his New York residence, the music powerhouse explained that just like most of his songs were produced, ‘Joro Joro’ was conceived and produced in the course of a studio session when he was in Nigeria for a festival last year.
‘Joro Joro’, which was recorded during last year’s (2020) Yuletide period, according to the singer, was produced in the spirit of the festivity.
“I was home last year’s December to celebrate the festive period. And while I was there, I spent some time in the studio. There was this particular day I was having a studio session and the producer said he has a beat he thought I would like. And lo and behold, I love that beat as I immediately smashed it. In less than 30 minutes, I wrote the song and it became a record. I had to abandon the song I initially came for to do for ‘Joro Joro’.
“It was the Christmas period and the center of focus of the song was more like ‘let’s have fun’…the festive period inspired me to record the song and that was how it came about,” he revealed.
