Jarrod Kala (26), Auckland, New Zealand

“My name is Jarrod and I am from Auckland, New Zealand. I’ve been surrounded by music my whole life. I grew up in a Niuean family and we mostly listened to Hip Hop, R&B with the occasional Soul, Reggae and Rap records. My introduction into the world of pop was with the Spice Girls at the age of 4. I was obsessed with them! Since then I have gravitated more towards urban pop acts such as Beyoncé, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. I’m always up for a discussion about pop music. It even is my go to topic in awkward situations! A Bit Of Pop Music is my go to source for an in depth look on what’s happening in the world of pop music. Let’s start some fun conversations!”
