Joel Kargbo, popularly known as Jooel, is one of Sierra Leone’s new school rappers undeniably leaving his mark on the Sierra Leonean music landscape with each record he releases, highlighting glorious vocal talents and charismatic presence as he ascends up the ranks.

Jooel’s rap proficiency was born while schooling at the Sierra Leone Grammar School and Fourah Bay College respectively, but the multi talented artiste has shown no fluke by consistently giving us banging tunes that serves as a precursor to the full body of work already in the pipeline.

His breakthrough song, “Chief Bomboli”, was an exciting Afro-Dance hall hitz and surefire hit that kept many on dancing shoes with total disregard of their home training. Jooel has since blessed us with songs like “Shuuu” and “Deh Deh” in 2021.

Joel was signed by Bodfly entertainment at the start of his career but has now become an independent artiste. However, his hardwork and consistency earned him an international collaboration alongside Drizilik and Markmuday in the 2021 hit song “Problem”.

Jooel has also been seen recently travelling to Nigeria and was also spotted at Heathrow airport, presumably for an international tour.

It’s certainly not been a bad year for Jooel and with more cooking up from him, and the sky is just the beginning provided his efforts can be multiplied in the coming year. However, at this time, Jooel sits as the #11 among the 20 Hottest Artistes in Sierra Leone 2021.
