Young John, the producer-tuned-musician, has opened up about his recent career transition.


The 27-year-old, last March, rebranded as an artiste and signed a deal with the record label Chocolate City.

The singer, who has produced numerous hits, said he got to a stage where singing seemed like the right thing to do.

Young John was speaking on a Friday Twitter Spaces hosted by Trace, the entertainment company.


He said he had this subsisting desire to become a musician.

Young John said he had made a couple of songs but didn’t release them until recently.

“I feel like everything is in stages and it’s like a journey. Most times it is not crystal clear. I have always felt the need to create music but I was just never at that point of putting it out,” the singer said.


“But right now I’m at that stage and that’s what I’m doing right now. It’s a long journey and it’s the stage I’m currently at.”

Speaking on being a superstar and social anxiety, Young John said he previously didn’t like going out.

The singer, however, noted that he’s now over the social anxiety and is able to connect with new people.

“I never used to go out even, I’m not really a social person. I won the African producer of the year, I was never there,” Young John said.


“I won Headies producer of the year as well. I was never there either.

“I was not really a social person. Everyone that knew me would say I’m shy but it wasn’t that I was shy, I couldn’t just meet people. But right now it’s getting better. So right now I’m outside.”
