He may look like an ordinary four-year-old but what he can do at his age is anything other than that. Hailing from Fulbari in Pokhara, Utprem Jojeju plays drums and can do so confidently throughout every song. Born on September 30, 2008 to Binit and Sanu Jojeju, the young talent has already performed at a number of musical events and is now preparing to register himself in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Utprem came to Kathmandu to record a song during his winter vacation and helping the young drummer in his quest are Music Nepal and Nepal Music Center. To register for the Guinness Book of World Records, Utprem recorded a song at the Music Nepal studio, last week. He played drums in the song ‘Jati Maya Laye Pani’ by singer Arun Thapa, which was covered by his father, Binit Joshi. Meeting the requirements of the Guinness Book Record, the song was recorded in front of Nepal Police, renowned musician Sila Bahadur Moktan, musician Subha Bahadur Sunam, representative of the World Cultural and Chinese Information Center as well as other personalities.
Utprem is currently studying in the nursery level at Global Collegiate Higher Secondary School in Ranipauwa in Pokhara. After having demonstrated his skills with the drums on the first day of school itself, Utprem has received a full scholarship from the school. After school, he religiously practices the drums for about one and a half hours and then only moves on to doing his homework.
At a young age, Utprem has proved the fact that if given opportunity, he can become anything he aspires to be and hopefully he will be an inspiration for many young dreamers.
