Young Jonn features Olamide on new exciting single, 'Currency'
Anyone familiar with the contemporary Afro beats scene will recognize the duo of Young Jonn and Olamide. One-time producer-artiste chemistry that held the street-pop scene spellbound. Now, after a litany of throwback chart-topping collabs such as Bobo, Science Student, and Confam Ni, among others. This fearsome duo returns as both singers on a new vibrant Afro-pop bop dubbed, Currency.
Currently, the bromance between Young Jonn and Olamide is obvious even to a blind person. The Chocolate city-signee rehashes the soulful vibe of Olamide that has glowed on his previous classics such as Melo-Melo. Fucking With The Devil, among others. On Currency, both sonic titans tell their tale of ambition, struggles, perseverance and success. While Young Jonn’s stretchy vocals carry the hook with a soulful mien. While Olamide’s slow and sullen raps brew the record into the soothing elixir that it was produced to be.
Following the successful release of his sophomore EP, Love Is Not Enough VOL 2. Charting on Nigeria’s official Top 10 charts and peaking at Number 1 on this chart for weeks. Young Jonn’s Currency is a vibrant comeback for the producer-cum-singer.
YoungJonn ended last year with a positive run of several back-to-back singles. Which culminated in Xtra Cool.
Born John Saviours Udomboso, Young Jonn honed his career as one of the most prominent Nigerian music producers of the 2010s. Returning as an artiste, in 2018, with the song Oshey, Young Jonn continued remodeling his brand until his debut compilation sound piece.

Unarguably one of the biggest breakouts in the year 2022 with over 150 Million streams garnered so far, Young Jonn is geared to continuously deliver several exciting musics for his listeners and join his peers as one of Afro beats exports to the world.
