1. DYK that the Genre or Term Alte, was coined by DRB LASGIDI in which BOJ is a member of the Group?. The Genre takes the elements of Afrobeat, RNB, Hip Hop, Dancehall, Reggae and bringing out a new sound now known as Alte, so we can say DRB LASGIDI are the Grandfathers of Alte Music.

2. DYK that BOJ released his second studio Album on his 28th birthday, been the 22 of April, 2022?. Well now you know. 

3. DYK that sometime in 2023, BOJ stated that Gen Z Afrobeat stars like Rema and Fireboy DML belong to the Alte Music Genre. Putting it into consideration, this can be true as Rema himself defines his sound as Afro Rave and not purely Afrobeat, it maybe Alte all along, since it's comprises of different genres coming together, and Rema do mix a lot of genres in his songs, same with Fireboy. Do you think this is true, well for me, fckn yes.


   BOJ's Journey from his early days with DRB LASGIDI to his solo career has been nothing short of inspirational. His knack for blending genres, soulful vocals and lyrics have made him become a prominent names in the Alternative Music Genre. We pray and hope that he do more in the Alte Music industry and beyond.
