household. JiG,native name, Ikem Eguh’s father was murdered in Nigeria when JiG was only 5 years old.
Unfortunately, many men come from a similar story. Like these times today the way black men are being killed today by law enforcement. For most, this lack of nurturing ends up having them
resort to being raised by the streets and continuing the traumatic cycle. But JiG still had a praying mother
with high hopes of him graduating medical school and one day becoming successful enough to take care
of her and giving him the fuel he needed to cut through the noise and focus on his craft.

shift from a medical interest in college to a music career.
