Interview: Joeboy On Blowing Up and His New 'Love & Light' EP

In an exclusive interview with OkayAfrica, Nigeria's buzzing artist Joeboy reveals the details and cover artwork for his debut EP, Love & Light, and talks about his massive year.

2019 has been a dream year for Joeboy.

With just two singles—the hugely popular "Baby" and "Beggining"—the newcomer artist has managed to become one of the most talked about names bubbling out of the Nigerian music scene. Joeboy has also become a poster child for the huge potential that Mr Eazi's emPawa initiative can bring to new African artists.

As a member of emPawa's initial class, Joeboy used the investment money he gained to film a music video for "Baby," which went on to get 16 million Youtube plays and launched the single to No. 1 spots across Nigeria and Uganda on Apple Music. "Beginning" followed and had an equally large impact as it reached No. 1 in Apple Music Nigeria and Uganda, as well as top 10 spots in Kenya, Ghana and Zimbabwe.

Joeboy is now readying the release of his debut EP, Love & Light, due November 8, from which he's now sharing its lead single "Don't Call Me Back" featuring Mayorkun.
