Born to Congolese parents and raised in a bustling household, Janga‘s early exposure to a kaleidoscope of musical styles paved the way for his unique artistic journey.
While Janga has a deep appreciation for the works of numerous 20th- and 21st-century musicians, he’s never been shy about naming his favourites.
Among the legends that have left an indelible mark on him, Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson, and The Beatles hold a special place in his musical heart.
But Janga’s path to musical stardom wasn’t a predictable one. Initially, he dabbled in rap as a pastime, a creative outlet to express his thoughts and emotions. However, by late 2019, he felt the stirring call to make a profound impact on the music industry.
It was in 2020 that Janga made his official debut with the track “Next Level.” The response was nothing short of remarkable, earning him widespread acclaim and attention from both fans and the industry.
Yet, Janga’s journey is not just about music; it’s about life experiences and the diverse influences that shape his artistry.
One such influence is the concept of “gyalcation.” Originating from the idea of a getaway weekend for female friends filled with nothing but sun-soaked fun, Janga and his friends took inspiration from this to approach a group of women, sparking a conversation and setting the stage for his musical tales.
Janga’s story is one of diversity, of blending cultural roots with contemporary rhythms. His music reflects not only his own journey but also the dynamic city of East London.
With influences that span generations and a unique perspective on life, Janga’s ascent in the music world promises to be as diverse and captivating as the music that inspires him.
