Lyfe is just like the leaves so he goes with the flow, In the year of the scorpions he was born in Saint James hospital in Leeds to Ghanian parents Doris Mariam Okine and his prodigal father Fredrick Abeeeku Cann. His name is Francis Augustine Mensah Kojo Edu Jojo Cann, Surrounded by music at an early age Don Jojo found himself holding position as a lead tenor in his local choir. “For me its the only thing I love doing because I wasn’t really good in class but I try to find some thing I could escape to and with God, every thing is possible” he says.“I was brought up in a church but always see my self as a lost soul, as a child growing up it wasn’t very pleasant, things were very hard in those days and mama had to go thru a lot. Don Jojo later found himself back in the UK to find a way to change everything, For himself and his family. Music being the only thing he knew, he decided walk the path.

For me this E.P is like my first kid because its means a lot to me. Its like an exhibition of art, but it came in a form of music and poetry. It talks about relationships, like “The Burning Rose” and “It’s a Shame” featuring Samita, which was a good collaboration ,she’s got great voice and it was fun working with her, I never hard the chance to thank her, but I would like to say stay blessed and thank you. If I could take u to track three on the E.P “lyfe” featuring Djinn on the vocals. It talks about what Mama, My sisters and I had to deal with when dad left. But any way we made it to this far so every thing going to be ok.Nuf love to Bandanna Wale from Ghana.
