On Thursday evening, LandonBuford.com was invited to cover The First Gen’s premiere, a television show created by Ms. Jorji. It’s a reality program about the first generation of Africans living in Dallas, Texas.
According to Ms. Jorji, First Gen will be dropping on December 26 on Patreon, and it can be searched as First Gen Africa. It is $4.99.
“Please support the independent production companies like myself, that’s trying to get out there. We are so excited for everyone to get to see this.”
This project has been in the works since her freshmen year in college.
“Listen this is actually freshmen year of college that I had this dream, but I like this, this is so stupid this not something that no one is going to want to watch this. [However], the closer it got my mind was like, let’s just do it. F’ it, whoever likes it, and whoever doesn’t doesn’t, that’s it,” said Jorji.
“I really love where I come from and I think sometimes people don’t understand what it is like to be African. It is more in-depth than being an African Booty Scratcher. So, I really wanted to show what it means, and why it is so special to be African. That’s a great way to give people some insight to my friends and our world. We work our asses off, but we play harder. “
In addition, to having her television show making its debut later this month, she will also be dropping a music project.
“My EP is going to be the soundtrack for First Gen is coming out in March, but you are also going to be able to hear a sample of it if you watch the show. My second single is officially January 3 on all platforms. So, Ms. Daisy, make sure you stay tuned for Ms. Daisy [by Ms. Jorji].
Ms. Jorji music producer, Nazzii, was also in attendance on Thursday evening and shared that there will be about eight tracks on the EP.
“We are going to say about eight songs on the Ep. We are going to keep it short and sweet and keeping the people wanting more. It’s just a little preview,” said Nazzii.
“Jorji is hella talented, and when we get into the studio, we knock them songs out back to back. She’s a natural at it, and for the fact that she’s all been doing it for three months getting to the studio and making what she makes,” she is destined for it.”
Ms. Jorji also has her hand in a tech startup called ‘Lyndrx.’
“I have my hand in thin tech and tech start up as well, it’s called Lyndrx and deals in thin tech. So, we’re a peer to peer lending thin tech business. We are a unicorn and we unique. We are evaluated at $6.7 billion. So, we are still to drop and that is the valuation before we have even touched the ground.”
“Being broke in college and it was literally my best friend and I. We went broke in college together and that is exactly how the concept came together. We just a solution to being broke.”
She finished the interview recapping the project that would be dropping in the next couple, sharing that her producer, Nazzii, is signed to 300, which Warner Music Group recently acquired.
“My show, of course, we have the tech company that’s coming, we have the EP, of course, I mean I’m doing everything. So you guys stay tuned, and of course, I have an amazing producer named, Nazzii that I manage, he’s signed with 300 [Ent], and I’m so excited because he works with amazing people like Lil Uzi, Gunna. So he’s an incredible producer and I manage him, so I am excited about that as well.”
