Following the release of hit singles like “Aquafina” and “Go Hard,” which dominated charts in East Africa, Chocolate City’s recording artist and producer, Young Jonn, is gearing up to drop his highly-anticipated debut album, "Jiggy Forever."

He's also set to tour East Africa, marking his first tour of the region and aiming to foster collaborations between the Afrobeats genre and top talents from East Africa.

The album, consisting of 16 tracks, takes listeners on a journey across various physical, emotional, and sonic landscapes. Young Jonn collaborates with Jamaican rapper Sean Paul on “Hold On,” delving into themes of love and longing in the Caribbean Islands. He also teams up with Zlatan on tracks like “50 Million” and “Full My Tank,” celebrating financial success in Lagos, Nigeria, and joins forces with Don Jazzy. French-based Congolese sensation Ya Levis joins him on “Maya Maya,” a stylistic track detailing a whirlwind romance.

The album also features the amapiano-themed love anthem "Aquafina," which amassed 30 million streams and 1 million views on YouTube, and "Sharpally," which has garnered over 30 million streams since its release. Additionally, the confidence anthem “Big Big Things'' features Seyi Vibes and Kizz Daniel.

“This Album is really special to me. I feel like most people don’t really know who I am. They just have an idea,” Young Jonn says. “But this project uncovers the real me. Each track is like a snapshot of life's roller coaster, touching on love, hustle, and finding my way in a world that sometimes feels upside down.”

Young Jonn’s journey from producer to music artist began in 2021, after signing with Nigeria's Chocolate City Music. He released his first project, "Love Is Not Enough Vol. 1," which received critical acclaim and featured a remix of his single "Dada" with Davido. This was followed by "Love Is Not Enough Vol. 2."

Expected to be his best work yet, "Jiggy Forever" adds to Young Jonn's track record of quality projects, as seen in his first two EPs, "Love is Not Enough 1 and 2."
