Julz is a UK Afrobeats artist with a Cameroonian origin signed to Afru Music Entertainment.
His genre of music Afrobeats originates from a fusion of local African drums, konga rhythms etc, pop and hip hop instrumentals bringing something totally new that crosses over. Julz music is an uplifting and party or club friendly music that gets you swaying and moving.
Music was always part of his teen years and even though he did not sing in church, listening to a whole library of music from hip hop, pop, makossa, zouk etc all blended is a reason his music stands out. He started crafting his art with his label mate Ama Fru who is also the official Afru Music Ent. producer and an artist. Both were members of a former group called “X Flowz” a breeding ground for their musical developments and talents.
