The Suriname Dutch singer Joggo has released his single 'Private Performer' on August 1 2012. This song is the first single of his new CD 'Conscious Love' which will be released in 2013 and contains collaborations with national and international reggae artists.
Joggo was born in Amsterdam on October 29 1980 as Jurgen Orville Seedorf. Since he was a little boy he had a big passion for music and soccer, just like his big brother Clarence Seedorf. At the age of 10 Joggo entered the Ajax Football Academy and he stayed there until he was 17. Then Joggo left Ajax to join Real Madrid in Spain, he stayed there for one year before he returned back to Holland to play for Dutch first division teams. Since 2011 Joggo decided to stop playing football and to choose for his first love: music.
After playing in a Suriname band for 5 years, Joggo decided to go solo and to focus on the music that had really stole his heart: reggae. That same year Joggo released a mixtape and dominated the reggae charts with his single 'Beware' (Kingdom riddim). The song had a huge impact and had a #2 position in the official German Reggae charts for weeks. After that Joggo released different singles on internationally known riddims from well known reggae producers. In 2011 Joggo released his album called 'Modern Rockers- Volume 1' (Dredda Records), which also was a big international success, with even the single 'Peace and Love' as a headliner in the Hawaiian Reggae charts.
Joggo has performed on the bigger festivals like Summerjam and Reggaejam (Germany), Future Reggae Ruigoord, Keti Koti Festival and Zwarte Cross (Holland). Joggo has also been the opening act for international reggae stars like Ijahman Levi, Turbulence, Midnite and Stephen Marley.
Black Star riddim:
The song 'Private Performer' is a wonderful summerhit that will make you wish you were sitting in Jamaica with your toes in the sand. The music is from Black Star Foundation and has been written by international composers Tuff Lion (Virgin Islands), Osagyefo (Ghana) and Asher E (Holland). Joggo is responsible for the lyrics, which he wrote himself. This single is also the first single that Joggo will be releasing on his own label 'Joggo Music Productions'.
