Known for their swag onstage appearances coupled with fascinating dance moves, the boy band Nobles is a growing phenom on the Gambian music scene.
With a great start to 2018, the trio continue to rack up more accolades with numerous singles in their growing career.
Starting out as Street Nigaz, which is more of typically a hip-hop movement back in 2011, the trio namely, Abdoulie Badjan aka Jola Boy, Sailou Mballow – Aya and Alieu Colley aka T Berry, made a dramatic U-turn later on with the rebranding of their names to Nobles. From 2013 they have been dropping hit after hit.
They hailed from the West Coast Region settlement of Nema Kunku. In April 2015, the group made its first public appearance. And following years of rising success, Nobles released their smash singles namely, Komkom, Jarama, The Matter, Nna Jarabi, The Only One and Jilewon.
The songs earned significant airplay and established their ever-increasing popularity on the country’s music scene.
For Abdoulie Badjan, a member of the group, their road to success was a fascinating one, recounting the community they hailed from. He noted that their music is a fusion of African beats.
“We are brought up in a music community. Our genre is different and our message is love among ourselves. And we advocate for peace in Africa. We believe music is peace and it can inculcate peace in the minds of all.”
Despite the stiff competition in the music scene, Nobles were able to survive the heat and continue to blaze the scene like never before.
