“It has been a tough journey for me growing up; seeing my Mum cooking outside the ghetto and all that gave me hope to do better and uplift the image of the family. So I took my music career serious when I discovered myself”, he cut in.
“Why did you pick the name Juni Hype? Tell me”, King Lagazee asked.
”Well my name ‘Juni’ is an Ethiopian god, where Haile Selassie comes from. I am an African Youth who believes in the African spirit and chooses my paths carefully with a heavy attachment to My African heritage. So that means my name Juni Hype is a ‘brave god’. I am the fresh brave heart and I am the new voice of Dancehall”, Juni Hype explained.
I look up to Aidonia and Mavado. I gravitate towards their vibe and how they keep it mellow with their style. They are a big inspiration.
“BraveHeart” is his debut album listed on the global music stores. The young anger and his Management has been working very hard behind the scenes. It’s a 7-track album with a blend of Dancehall, Reggae and Afrobeats. Born real name Swanzy Annan, he picked the Showbiz name “Juni Hype”.
