2. Jojo (Trinidad and Tobago)
Jojo follows in the footsteps of her older sister, soca star Nadia Batson.
A former background vocalist, Jojo has only been on the frontline for one year yet she is already known throughout the Caribbean and the United States.
Her 2014 single, Shake Dat, propelled her to unexpected heights. So, where did she come from? Many believe that her first hit was a matter luck, but Jojo has paid her dues to soca music over the years.
Before branching out on her own, Jojo was a background vocalist for the all female band SASS and sang in-studio harmonies for some of the most popular artistes, including: Machel Montano, 5Star Akil, Lyrikal, among others.
Jojo prides herself on being a unique artiste in both the songs she release and her image. In an interview with a popular Trinidad and Tobago magazine she once said “Jo Jo is a blend of fashion, music, art and fun. I came from a very gifted family, vocally and creatively, which has nurtured and influenced my own creativity. So you would find that my music and my image reflect just that.”
