Happy birthday to 'El Broko'! The career of Ñejo in just a few words

Since she was very young, Ñejo began to presage what would be his musical career. Today he says that he likes to "get money out of what he likes to do", to live on music and enjoy not having to spend his days in a cubicle.

At the age of 12 he already started to improvise and compose, with the courage that still persists today in his style. This would be what would draw the attention of its neighbors and, over time, of its neighborhood, until reaching the popularity that soon would explode to an international level.

Like many urban artists, Ñejo began his career in Ponce, Puerto Rico. With his artistic name given by his mother, the author of ‘No quiere novio’ was consigned from then on to never forget his origins, even when the problems were knocking at his door.

Many of the songs from his first album along with Dálmata: Broke and Famous, seemed to ring forever in the bars of many latin cities, as well as at home parties. 'Pasarela' was the favorite track of many for its tropical and triumphal rhythm, due to its introduction full of trumpets and cheerful sounds. The same destination had 'Sexo en la playa' and, of course, 'Algo musical', song that counted with the collaboration of Arcángel and Dj Nelson.

His solo album, Yo soy la fama, was released in 2014 and caught the attention of the public who was already following the steps of his career. The Ñejo of this album was launched to make collaborations with a great amount of artists, like Nicky Jam, Ñengo Flow and De la Ghetto.

In 2016, 'El Broko' began to take steps in the trap, with songs like 'Sin Carga' and 'Misterio', without leaving aside other latin sounds that he also liked to use, close to salsa, champeta, cumbia and, mainly, the classic beat of reggaetón.
