Who is Jbee? All You Need to Know About the Ghanaian-UK-Based Artiste
A rapper, writer, performer, and all-around artiste. He has been called many names and attributed to many things, but a common factor in all this is how he has used music to change his life and share his experiences and story with the world.
Life in the music industry is not easy to navigate, but with the right plan, determination, and spirit, you can find your own way to the top. That has been the trajectory of Ghanaian-UK-based artiste Jbee, who has been carving a name for himself as one of the future music stars.
Growing up in a Ghanaian home where music was always blasting through the speakers, Jbee quickly developed an interest in music, which would see him start freestyling and rapping at a very early age. Unlike his peers, freestyling was not just a phase, like for many young music lovers who would mimic their favorite artistes.
Jbee possessed unique skills that deserved to be heard by the world. Taking advantage of the resources and relationships with music personalities like Guilty Beatz around him, he started learning how to write and record his own songs. Years later, he would release his breakout single “4 AM” in 2021. The single would go on to perform very well across music platforms and set Jbee up for a great start to his career.
At just 19, the Ghanaian artiste currently has over 200 million streams across various music platforms. JBee is a versatile artiste who flows well on trap, drill, and Afro swing while combining his Ghanaian roots in highlife and hiplife. Despite being an independent artiste, he continues to push himself to the limits to not only attain success but, through his music, amplify the stories of people who share the same experience as he does.
He has garnered followers and immense support across social media, with followers in the hundreds of thousands on Instagram and TikTok alone. With great storytelling skills, cadence, flow, and delivery, Jbee, backed by passion, commitment, and support, is committed to being a force in the music industry with great longevity while attaining great heights in the industry.
Albeit it being the early days, he has a performance at the 02 Brixton under his belt, an official UK chart song that charted for weeks, a wireless performance, multiple appearances on top radio shows in the UK, and a MOBO Nomination for Best Newcomer.
He has already kicked off 2023 on a high note by collaborating with fellow Ghanaian artiste Gyakie on their song “Scar“. With the song already making waves on TikTok, it has been projected to be one of the biggest songs to come out of the country this year. With the massive reception the song is enjoying during its opening week, 2023 would be another year in the books for Jbee.
