Early Life

JoJo Hailey was born Joel Hailey on June 10, 1971, in Monroe, North Carolina. JoJo is the son of gospel singers Cliff and Anita Hailey and the younger brother of Cedric "K-Ci" Hailey. The family spent some time living in Baltimore, Maryland, but they returned to the Charlotte area when their sons were teenagers. In the '80s, the brothers were members of Little Cedric and the Hailey Singers alongside their father, and the group released the albums "I'm Alright Now" (1983), "Jesus Saves" (1984), and "God's Blessing" (1985). "Jesus Saves" reached #4 on the "Billboard" Gospel Albums chart, and "God's Blessing" peaked at #22.


In 1989, the Hailey brothers formed the R&B quartet Jodeci with Donald and Dalvin DeGrate. The band's debut album, 1991's "Forever My Lady," was certified 3× Platinum, and it reached #18 on the "Billboard" 200 chart and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The singles "Forever My Lady," "Stay," and "Come and Talk to Me" reached #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and "Come and Talk to Me" was certified Gold. Next, Jodeci released the 1993 album "Diary of a Mad Band," and it went 2× Platinum and reached #3 on the "Billboard" 200 chart and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The album featured the Gold single "Cry for You," which topped the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The group's third album, 1995's "The Show, the After Party, the Hotel," reached #2 on the "Billboard" 200 chart and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The Platinum album also reached #4 on the UK Albums Chart, and the singles "Freek'n You," "Love U 4 Life," and "Get On Up" were top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Personal Life

JoJo and his wife, Tashaunda "Tiny" Hailey, appeared in several episodes of the VH1 reality series "Couples Therapy" in 2012. The couple eventually decided to separate, and Tashaunda told "Distractify" in early 2023, "Things didn't work out. I decided that it was time for me to move out on my own probably about three years ago. I wanted to move on my own and just see what that looked like." She added, "There will never be any ill will between JoJo and I." JoJo and Tashaunda have two daughters, Sakoya Wynter and Kayla Tiffany. Sakoya joined the cast of the WE tv reality series "Growing Up Hip Hop" during the show's sixth season. Hailey has struggled with alcoholism and health problems, and he told "Sister 2 Sister" magazine, "Ever since Jodeci had their first hit, that's when everything started spiraling downward. I mean with the whole band, individually and as a group. From then on I really didn't have no feelings about it. It was just party and BS. But I didn't think it was taking a toll on me until the first time that I said I wasn't going to drink anything, and I fell into a seizure. So that was like a withdrawal." JoJo also revealed, "I drank so much until a small part of my pancreas had ate away. That's no pain you want to feel. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy."
