SMOJ or SMOJiggy as he is fondly referred to by friends and fans, is a Chicago based singer, songwriter, and producer originally from Lagos, Nigeria. His smooth, calm, feel-good music represent the new advent of genre breaking sounds from Africa. His music is a distinctive blend of elements taken from altè, afro beats, reggae, hip hop, pop and r&b – a reflection of the genreless ears of youth today. After 2 years since his debut single comes his debut LP The Blue Door, on which he demonstrates significant artistic growth and a more realized vision.
Sometimes, the songs know before the songwriter does. That was certainly the case with SMOJ’s newest release – ‘The Blue Door’, a shadowy, smooth-oriented collection mined from the deepest reaches of his subconscious and the solitude brought about by a global pandemic.
