“When I was little, I liked to follow my father who liked to sing. Finally, my mother took me to a singing class,” he explained. Jebung’s mother felt that her daughter had a talent for singing. Therefore, Jebung was included for singing lessons. In 2020, it turned out that Jebung had registered for the Indonesian Idol audition. “I’ve been going to singing auditions a lot since I was 8 years old. The last time I tried Indonesian Idol was last year, but I haven’t received it yet. Maybe that’s not the way to go this time, I finally got famous through social media,” he explained.
Jebung first used Tiktok in July 2020. Because his best friend felt the content he created on Instagram was very suitable to be uploaded into Tiktok. “At first, I was not confident about making content on TikTok, because at that time I made a cover video for a song that only 3 people liked. I finally remake a video cover of one of the people who are busy on tiktok and finally made the video without any preparation. Even then, I recorded it in front of the bathroom and didn’t take a shower either, I didn’t think it could be millions of dollars a day,” he said. Because of the uploaded video, Jebung is now famous and has received many offers to sing on various television programs.
