Nhojj - Love
With an unwavering passion for staying true to his artistic callings and a spirit born out of epiphanies, Nhojj has spent more than a decade becoming what some regard as a “soul pioneer”. “I want to help make this world better for everyone… one song at a time.” Nhojj says, a statement that underscores the classic soul tradition of “message in the music”.
More distinctive than his trademark locs or striking features, Nhojj is a songwriter who understands lyricism, a vocalist who projects his voice as an instrument, and an entertainer with a mystical magnetism that has compelled audiences for years. With an essence that is as sweet as it is strong, Nhojj is the self-affirming warrior whose mantra “Live Your Live” is echoed throughout his 7 CDs (5 studio), 13 singles and an Unplugged Live DVD (filmed by Emmy-nominated director Bill Cote).
Nhojj grew up in Guyana and Trinidad, where he performed for the Presidents of both countries. A preacher’s kid, his humility and deep spirituality can be traced back to a 7-year old singing in his father’s church in Georgetown. He was a good student whose musical talent was understated given his natural inclination for it, he completed a BA in Economics at New York University before embarking on a musical career.
