J. Cole is one of the most influential and successful rappers in the world. The musician was born in Frankfurt and emigrated to the United States with his family at a very young age. He discovered early that he has a great interest in lyrics. Today he is a giant in the music industry. Jermaine, as his real name is, always has an eye open and looks for young people who are talented. That’s how he discovered a songwriter from Germany.
Ali Ciwanro was already very active writing lyrics at the time. Despite this, he was doing anything but well. The young songwriter suffered from severe depression and fear of the future. He wrote lyrics for German musicians and rappers. J. Cole talked to him and quickly realized how talented the 20-year-old actually is.
Immediately he offered Ali to work with him. The business relationship quickly turned into a personal one. Jermaine showed a serious interest in Ali’s life and problems. Ali told him many things and was subsequently motivated by the successful rapper on a daily basis.
Today Ali is doing better and he collaborates with other great artists like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. Ali says he will always be grateful to J. Cole and calls him a very good person.
Although Ali Ciwanro is a multi-Gold and Platinum certified songwriter, his focus is not only on his work. He is very interested in social developments and fights problems whenever he can. This is a fact that Jermaine and many others find very impressive.
