RTÉ 2FM is naming acts and artists to see, listen to and enjoy in 2021...
Monjola is an Alternative R&B artist from Dublin and is one of the most exciting acts emerging from Ireland.
He has already established his name in the burgeoning Irish scene as a result of his extensive involvement in the business side of the industry. He runs exhibitions with his collective, Cleavage Club, and presents The Cold Room chat show on the Frosted platform. This demonstrates his intentions to build a flourishing creative ecosystem and inspire future generations.

Despite only releasing his debut single, Know You, in late July of 2020, Monjola has had a lifelong passion for music. It was only a matter of time before he took the leap as he patiently perfected his craft by testing the waters on SoundCloud, hence the confidence in his delivery.
This self-assurance, combined with his seamless flow between rapping and singing, propelled the song to instant success, with a million views on YouTube and over 100,000 streams on Spotify in the first few months. In addition, it gained radio play across the UK and Ireland, with RTÉ 2 FM selecting it as their 'Track of the Week' and BBC 1 Xtra giving it their stamp of approval.
