Singer/songwriter Yohana, 26, was born in Debre Zeit and raised in Addis by a single mom. He had a passion for and an interest in music from an early age that grew into pursuing music as a career. After 4 years of studying Mechanical Engineering at university, he decided to take a hiatus from school to focus on his music and soon began to perform with several bands in Addis Ababa performing local and international reggae cover songs, from weekly club gigs to festivals and concerts.


Slowly but surely Yohana started to gain fans; they were mesmerized by his electric and energetic performance giving him the opportunity to open for global superstars Jesse Royal, Protoje & Chronix shows in Addis Ababa.


Yohana was also selected to perform at the 2017 edition of Rototom Sunsplash Festival in Spain along with seasoned countrymen reggae stars under the group name “Ethnopia”.


Now is the time for Yohana to step up and become a professional artist in his own right and he is set to release his debut album in February 2019. The album has 10 tracks, all written by him, filled with authentic reggae sounds ranging from roots, funk, ska & dancehall. Long time friend & music producer Marven composed 9 tracks while Atsebeats did the first single “Mercha Alat”. The album will be available in CD across all music shops & street sellers in Ethiopia as well as all major digital distribution platforms worldwide.
