His father, the late Evang. Gyang Luke Dung was a preacher, Sec Gen of NLFA or SRDK, a translator for the late Paul Gindiri, and also noteworthy, he was a revered and well known musician in Nigeria starting from the 1970’s. He remains a major influence on Jeremiah’s music.

From stirring beginnings as a music director at his father's Church choir, Jeremiah has evolved a great deal. His music has been described as ‘a fine blend of soulful African rhythms, blues, rock and gospel’. Songs like ‘African Child’ where he describes the horrors of war, define Jeremiah as an extraordinary songwriter.
