Jokema Band

Jokema lead singer speaks on health battle

Whilst apologising to friends and fans for his recent absence and silence on the music scene, Isaac, commonly known as Jokema, said: “I am paralysed from the waist down.

“Saying it out loud to you all is part of the recovery process. But I am alive and I thank God for that. Whether or not I will ever walk again is in God's hands, my faith and determination."

It has taken him 10 months to open up after his devastating spinal cord injury, but he is determined to come out on top.
