windhoek has seen boy bands come and go but ‘Jy Moet Onthou’ says they are here to make their mark with Hip Hop, RnB and Caribbean tunes, and no one is safe from their artistic genius.
The group is made up of Brooklyn Nyameko Mayij, Bobby Gaseb and Ponti Dikuua who is no stranger to music.
The group met in studio with no intentions of ever becoming a group but because they recorded a unique song which explored all their talents, they decided to become Jy Moet Onthou.
“We were amazed with the talent and creativity we saw in each other as individuals and we decided to see to where this would lead us,” Ponti said.
The group does not only sing but they also work on dance routines to keep up with other boy bands that sing and dance.
Those that have heard them sing will vouch for the quality of their music which takes you back to the time of Boys II Men with a new generation fusion.
Jy Moet Onthou is the masterminds behind the song called Tonight which is an RnB techno house love jam.
Replay - a Caribbean kwaito and RnB mix for the fans and all-night partying.
Follow Me is their deep house track that celebrates being an African.
They also worked on a soul-house track called Play the Song which is a dedication to misunderstood women who love night life.
The group is now working on its debut album where Ponti creates the beats (mastering, mixing and composing) while Bobby creates the tunes with Brooklyn adding swag and life to the music as well as assist with the composing and mastering.
Their music does not discriminate because it appeals to every music lover who likes real vocal work with no auto tuning.
