G-Tech Records has unveiled signing its first Gambian artist Muhammed Saine aka Thunder Boy. It is part of their plans to make better the Gambian music industry.
The information was revealed by chief executive officer of G-Tech Records, Enakeno Arowsi at a signing ceremony of their first Gambian afro pop artist.
“Our objective and mission into Gambian music industry is to boost Gambian youths in terms of music. And to help them to know who they are, to reach out to the outside world about what pains them in their hearts and what they want to say for themselves.”
He said they have screened a lot of artists whilst describing Muhammed Saine as a singer and producer who listens to what they say and adheres to what they want, whenever he brings his own suggestions.
“We have made a lot of contacts and we send some part of his alights to Nigeria and UK, but we are targeting the Nigerian market because in terms of the kind of music that we are into afro pop, if you can explore the Nigerian market you can explore any other country in the world. So that is why we are using him for G-Tech Records.”
He continued: “Music doesn’t have borders; it can go wide mostly on the internet. There will be a big difference and G-Tech Records has done a lot when it comes to sports and music which we want to explore now.”
Thunder Boy said he is motivated and ready to do more work, noting that his signing under G-Tech Records is timely and that he is ready to get better.
“I am coming up with nine songs and I am working on an album. I have this passion since I was young and I really want to be a performing artist. I like making music and I also feel like one day people will hear what Thunder Boy is about. I have the passion and I want to be an ambassador of my country to push the name to the outside world.”
He said G-Tech Records is ready to do everything possible to push his music both home and abroad, saying in the coming months and years things are going to change.
He urged other artists to do more work and research to create new things.
