Jaywon attended his elementary education at ECWA Primary School before attending Government Secondary School in Kogi State for his secondary schooling before graduating with an HND in Account from Federal Polytechnic, Bida.

In 2005, the singer relocated to Lagos, where he worked with Ray G, Sound Sultan, W4, Slizzy E, and 2face in less than a year.

Jaywon was given the opportunity to sing at the Kennis Music Easter Fiesta in 2009, and he made such an impression that the event’s organizers were immediately interested in him.

Jaywon signed a record deal with Kennis Music Record Label later that year. ‘Jaywon has one of the most recognisable voices in the industry,’ he was once said.

He released the single ‘Odun Yi (This Year)’ in December 2012 to critical and commercial acclaim.

PZ Cusson eventually secured an endorsement arrangement with him, allowing the firm to exploit his popular song, “This Year,” for promotional purposes. Check out Jaywon’s Songs, Videos and Albums below!
