“I was born and raised in Sweden, but my father is from Bakau New Town. I have sisters and brothers and several cousins both in Sweden and in The Gambia. I started visiting The Gambia when I was a child. I have a great passion for the culture and have for a long time looked for ways to be able to spend more time there and combine work between Sweden and there. 

“I loved singing when I was a child. I guess I kind of stuck with it. I went to music school and tried to record and perform as much as possible.  Luckily, I ran into a lot of talented people along the way who could help me learn. Amongst many, I’d probably name my former teachers: Aron Phiri, Carol Rogers, Damon Frost, and Henry Brewer. I’ve also been in situations where I got to exchange words with musicians such as Quincy Jones, Redman, Andre 3000 and Mario to name a few. My life has been around music. I was in The Gambia recently. I originally went for a family vacation and some minor music work. I stayed for almost 7 months to record an album, a music video and begin the Gambian launch of my music career…”
