Ejo: New Singer on the [Trinidad & Tobago] Block

The Leewards Times reports on 32 year-old Edmond Johnson, also known as Ejo. The Guyanese singer based in Trinidad & Tobago is “emerging as ‘the next big thing’ in the music industry after releasing his latest dancehall hit ‘The Way You Feel It.’” Other releases from Ejo include “Money Junkie” and “Ramona.”

In an interview with The Leewards Times, singer/songwriter Ejo said that his career in music sprung from his experience singing gospel in church—he has been singing since he was five—and from his love for soca music. His songwriting is inspired by issues related to social concerns, the environment, and current affairs. He also strives to bring positive messages to the region’s young people.

As the 2011 carnival season peaks in Trinidad over the next few months, Ejo is hoping to perform in soca monarch shows and carnival fetes as a means of developing his art form.
