Born Alieu Jallow but musically Allen Jay, he is sprouting rap-mbalax star currently making waves in the country.
The Nemakunku-based sensation started feeling the vibes after listening to the inspirational sounds of New Brains, an underground artiste based in the area. Fast moving on, he benefitted a lot from the constant coaching under the former, who was a member of a group called K Town Clan.
“K. Town Clan, boasts of many individual artistes that came together to form a team. I joined this group so as to achieve my dreams in music. Though, I did not stay long with the group due to misunderstanding among members, forcing me and my mentor to quit the group. I have numerous singles and I am working on my mixtape, which I hope to release next year,” he told Standard Lite on Wednesday.
He briefly joined New Vision Planet before finally moving to Nema Kunku, where he set up his first fan base called Da Kingdom Allen.
Later on, he met a friend and artiste called, Thinka Brain, whom he teamed up with to make headway in their music career. His passion for music later saw him record few songs, which include, Mama, My way, ‘Yama Doy’e, ‘Ndanne, ‘Bandi, Chii Rap’ and ‘Nop Nala’, among others. He has so far worked with some rising acts in the country including Soldier Papa among others. Over the years, he performed in music concerts in both The Gambia and Senegal.
As a promising act, who is always seeking to improve his craft, Allen Jay continues to record and embark on numerous music electrifying projects. Having gone through some transformation musically this past year, Allen Jay is now ready to unleash his full and true potential, energized and enlightened.
