Rap Artist and Ambassador, Teens Dream
JAYO is an 18-year-old rap artist from South East London, England. Besides being influenced by his father (a music journalist), his passion for music has also been inspired by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West and Jay-Z. For the past 5 years he has written and recorded his own music. He performed his first ever live show at the age of 15 and still continues to do so. After creating a prize winning music video for the Teens Dream contest (2015), JAYO is now a Teensdream ambassador. His United Nations Sustainable Development Goals inspired track "Teen With A Dream" was produced exclusively for Teens Dream. He says the 17th Goal (Partnership for the Goals) really stuck with him, because he believes people should be inspired and unite as one in order to take action against issues like poverty and global warming, whether that be through music, art or politics. He believes the key to reaching these goals will require a partnership with driven individuals, but mainly his young generation; who still have the power to make a change for the future. JAYO is planning to attend University this September.
