Son of musician parents, the father was guitarist of the Sharks (one of the most respected bands of Cape Verdean music) and his mother is Guinean from a family of singers and composers (family Marta), he began to take his first steps in music from an early age.

Djodje spent most of his childhood in Guinea-Bissau , despite being born in Cape Verde, once the son of a Guinean mother. Djodje also considers that he is also part of Guinea.

On his single “Ses Boca” he mentioned that.

In an interview with Expresso Das Ilhas CV, Djodje quoted:

I have performed in PALOP countries and not only. I have been to Angola a few times. Mozambique not yet. We have programmed a few times but it has not happened yet. I know my music is very well known there but we still can’t make it. Guinea-Bissau is more “serious” because I have a strong bond with that country, my mother is Guinean and I lived there a few years… I really want to go there, there have been invitations but it has not been possible yet.

The artist feels sorry for never had a concert in his mother’s country and hopes one day he will be able to do it.
