Jovi releases Raps 2 Riches. The five-song EP takes listeners on a journey, to the urban landscape of Cameroon, mixing cinematic production with powerful lyrics and witty social commentary. The Le Monstre produced Raps 2 Riches places Jovi in the running for one of the best hip hop artists in Africa, as he fluidly moves from funny, to sexually charged, to reflective. Spitting lyrics in multiple languages: French, English, and Pidgin, Jovi continues to break boundaries in music in Cameroon and Africa, with his trap influence, melodic gift, and lyrical deftness.

Jovi releases his highly anticipated second album, Mboko God. The Cameroonian rapper has created a musical journey that transcends cultural, linguistic, and geographical boundaries. Mboko God is a hip hop album full of influences from around the continent and takes listeners into unknown territory. Produced by Le Monstre, the multi-layered album effortlessly fuses Cameroonian rhythms, languages, and harmonies with musical influences from regions throughout the country. From the very first song, the beautiful “Mboko God – Positioning”, with Ngemba and Nliimbom dialects deep with meaning finished with an epic, unexpected trap flow by Jovi, it’s clear that the album is bringing forth a new genre of hip hop.
