Born on the 21st of October 1994 is Julian Fiifi Essel McLean Amissah (Jules Bambino). He’s had a fiery passion for music since he was 12 starting as an instrumentalist in church. He lived in Tema most of his life but is Fante from Siwdu in Cape Coast.
He first thought of doing music back in JHS 3, but actually began in SHS 2 after his friends suggested they formed a band and named it Skul Kidz.
The band was very popular and attained some celebrity status all through his days in school and even after. Life International College (LIC), where Jules Bambino went to SHS, had one of their best nights when Skul Kidz debut song ‘Number One fan’ was on, and many nights after that.
After Secondary education, the group parted ways with Julian going to Central University and Collins in Radford University but the group prevailed. They met occasionally and had 3 more songs after. Julian always saw himself to be more than an artiste and decided to start a record label even when he hadn’t blown as a mainstream artiste. He pushed this dream of his and started the Bambino Brand which signed Jeremy first. Together they produced the hit song ‘Only You’.
Jules is a rapper and a singer who doesn’t just do music for recognition but to send a message across. Jules’ mum would love for her son to do gospel songs but to that he responds ‘the fact that I’m not saying “I worship you Lord” in my songs don’t mean Christians can’t relate; In most of my songs, I sing about love and everyone falls in love. Christians do listen to love songs and play them on their weddings and they need me to sing them that song’.
Another hit song ‘Opana’ was released a couple of weeks ago and with this Afrobeat song he’s looking at a worldwide market as his style of music cuts across through all genres.
