However, Jony’s  father did not support his son’s decision, as he wanted him to follow in his footsteps and become a businessman. Therefore, after graduating from school, Jony entered the State University of Management at the Faculty of International Business. according to the artist himself, he studied there without much enthusiasm.

After graduating from the magistracy , Jony realized that he wanted to play music professionally and asked his father to give him a chance to try himself in this.
