Many Ghanaians are amazed and confused about Jon Germain’s music personality and keep wondering what his motives are in the music industry. One can't seem to stop and ask why he choose to make a Rock/pop album.

Jon’s album has been in the making since 1993 after he broke away from MGKK 4 in Ghana and the UK band Van Greene.His formative years as an artiste were shaped by listening to a lot of pop, rock and R&B music, his father’s favourite genre.

He started writing songs at age 12 and has written songs for MGKK 4 and Van Greene.??Jon’s musical influences are Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Bruce Hornsby, Richard Marx, Peter Cetera Frankie Paul and Michael Bolton.

Many fans were surprised Jon could sing at all, let alone as impressively as he did on his album. At the album launch last year some fans doubted his ability so he had to sing to them before they finally believed that the soothing voice behind rhythms was his.

You listen to his song and he is a comedian. An average rapper or lyrists should make you go like damn this guy can rap without a beat.

But Kwaw's songs are moved by exciting beats and some funny jokes and if I'm from Nigeria and I don't know what 'Odeim' is and I say flow in English and you can't do it then you're not good. If you've got talent, you can rap in any language if you're asked to.

Reggie is the only rapper who can make music and anybody from any part of the world can relate to it”. If you ask Reggie to rap in Chinese he will do it and that's it.”
