Born as Jurgen Orville Seedorf on October 29th 1980 in Amsterdam, introduced himself to the reggae audience in 2008 after the release of the mix tape “Beware”. The song “Beware” on Bobby Konders “Kingdom Riddim” had a huge international impact and peaked at the #2 position in the official German reggae charts for weeks. With performances on big festivals like: Summerjam and Reggaejam, Joggo also proved to be an excellent live performer which resulted in holding crowds busy from beginning till the end. After releasing several singles on riddims of internationally well known producers such as Curtis Lynch, Jr Blender and many more, Joggo also got recognition in Hawaii where the single “Peace and Love” turned out to be an instant hit tune.
Growing up with all kind of musical influences, reggae always had a special place in his heart. This because of the positive and conscience messages brought into the music. His biggest inspiration to start singing reggae is: Bob Marley but also legends like Burning Spear, Dennis Brown, Berres Hammond, Jimmy Cliff and Gregory Isaacs. In June 2011 Dredda Records released Joggo’s first official album called Modern Rockers Vol.1, this album contains hit songs like Peace and Love, DJ, Gun Down and Strong Black Woman. Also on this album the well known Turbulence The Future appears in a featuring with Joggo and Jah Decko with a big tune “Strong like Lion”!!
Joggo started to focus on the release of his new album and new singles. After various performances on summer festivals such as Zwarte Cross, Ruigoord and Reggae Sundance he also opened the show for Stephan Marley, Ijah man Levi, Midnite and Turbulence. He released the first two singles from his upcoming album “conscious Love”, called “Keep It Burning” and “Private Performer” which within one week reached the number 1 position at the I tunes reggae charts top 200. His latest project “Love Ova War” was released on 20 April 2019.
