Born and raised in Hackney, Jackman was tagged as the ‘Singing Politician’ by Sir Tom Jones and referred to as Britain’s first singing Black Prime Minister by leading tabloids.
Jermain is now actively using his voice to make political interventions which seek to create a fairer future for the children and young people in Hackney and beyond. This includes Jermain’s most recent, passionate plea to Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, drawing attention to the fact that in the past, stop and search too often labelled young people of colour as criminals, and urging police to step up policies.
Through his work as the Chair of the Young Futures Commission and advising capacity with the National Citizens Service, Jermain is raising awareness of how the youth of London are feeling disenfranchised and left without opportunities.
Jermain will be represented by Crystal Mahey-Morgan who commented:
“Jermain is an exciting and necessary voice committed to doing all that he can to make sure that future generations are not left voiceless. He is a super talented singer with a unique career path and has many exciting ideas in development. We feel hugely lucky to be working with Jermain and welcoming him to the OWN IT! collective”
