Jovanni Sterling born May 1990 in Leeds. Attended Carr Manor Community School and enjoyed it. Leaving with a 100% attendance. Loved music ever since I can remember.


High school 14 years old I first started writing bars (lyrics).  First showed them to a close friend and it snow balled from there.  First every free style on First Media TV received 27K views this confirmed people liked my lyrics and this spurred me on.


I play football.  So I train every day for but during the evenings and weekends I write my lyrics.  Life provides the inspirations for these.

Everyone asks me why GRAFT?  The reason behind my name GRAFT is due to my parents and Uncles because they work hard and encourage me to work hard too.  I just saw them ‘grafting hard’
