Early Life and career
Jahseh was raised up by his grandmother because his mother had financial issues and had to go out to work.

After stabbing the man, he was being forced to put in a youth program but it was later decided that he will live with his grand-mother and she can take care of him.
His aunt appreciated his participation in school choir and later church choir. He developed a sense and taste of music after attending choirs. But he could not stay at the school choir for longer as he was kicked out of school because of a serious fight between him and another student.
