“Love is great, Love is necessary, Love is beautiful; but Love is not enough”, Young Jonn says as he cracks a broad smile talking about his project. The roller coaster relationship themed 5-track EP appropriately titled “LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH” (L.I.N.E) takes the listener on a musical journey of love at first sight to the inevitable acceptance that they are better off as friends.
As is expected, Young Jonn’s musical production and creative direction on (L.I.N.E) is stellar, but even more alluring are the heartfelt lyrics, and effortless vocals which allow for an easily memorable song. The project kicks off with a horn strewn track “32” which expresses the undiluted happiness experienced with new puppy love. This is followed by his newest release “Dada”, already a fan favorite with its catchy repetitive hook, “Only you fit do me dada”. The narrative of unending love continues in “Next To You” as Young Jonn gets some help from American R&B lover boy, VEDO. They both serenade listeners with their sultry and pleasant vocals, but the tone quickly changes after Young Jonn decides it is best they remain as friends in “Just Friends”. In “Normally” it seems the friendzone is no longer enough, as Young Jonn laments about his missing love.
With this project Young Jonn is set to join the class of contemporary Afro-pop musicians/artists in Nigeria who combine songwriting and melodies to deliver a sonic delight. “This project has been a long time coming,” confessed Young Jonn, who suffers from crippling social anxiety. “I was only able to produce music for others like Olamide, Tiwa Savage, Naira Marley and others because I was too shy, but I think I’m ready now.”
