#Okay100Women

JOJO ABOT

OkayAfrica's 100 Women celebrates African women who are making waves, shattering ceilings, and uplifting their communities.

Hailing from Accra, Ghana, Jojo Abot is an accomplished artist who experiments with different genres including, electronica, afrobeat, jazz, neo-soul, house and reggae.


Abot also uses photography, literature and performance art to showcase her talent. Fyfya Woto, is the singer-songwriter's EP which talks about a woman’s right to choose and tells the story of “a young, Anlo (Ghanaian) woman hungry to be loved...Caught in a compromising situation with her Caucasian lover in a time of slavery and divide, she is brought before a tribunal at which she must save not only herself but also her lover.” The themes that come through include duty, love, family, freedom and tradition, to name a few.

Abot is scheduled to go on tour with Lauryn Hill later this year and has made a name for herself as a passionate performer who has graced the Summer Stage and Global Citizen platforms.

The Ghanaian creates work from Accra, New York City and Copenhagen.
