Tell us about yourself and what you do.



My name is Enetupe Lelevaga Jr., also known as "Jr." or by my stage name: "SHBX-Jun3." I was born and raised in Samoa. Growing up, I was always surrounded by music. My whole family is into music, ranging from island music to hip hop to R&B, and we each play instruments, sing, or do both! We were born with the rhythm in us. By the time I was 12 to 13 years old, I had taken up after my dad by starting to play the drums, then learning to play the bass.
