J Boog

Jerry Afemata, commonly known as J Boog was born in Long Beach, California and raised in Compton. From a young age he became fascinated with music. By the age of nine his mother and sister had convinced him to sing at a family reunion in front of 200 people. One of J Boog’s biggest influential figures was Bob Marley.  In 2005 J Boog got to meet his favorite artist, George Veikoso and a little later he started to work with him on music. Then in 2006 he moved to Hawaii to pursue his dream and a year later in 2007 he released his album ‘Hear Me Roar’.  This became popular and reached the Billboard’s Top Reggae Albums at #8. Since then he has created other albums and had the opportunity to share stages with artists like Damian Marley, Ziggy Marley, and Rebelution.
