A 23-year-old rising Afro Manding star is making a name for himself in the streets of Tabokoto and Kudang.
“I am commonly known as ‘koe doe leka diyamu’ a resident of Tabokoto and a graduate of Gambia Senior Secondary School in 2013.”
Why did you choose music?
I always have a passion to do music especially songs that help to inform and educate people and being the first musician in Niamina Kudang, I am given all the support to help me succeed in the music career. I have also gained a large fan base in Kanifing South.
When did you start music?
I started doing music in 2011 when I was going to school where I released my first single called ‘education song.’ I do more of Afro Manding songs now.
Apart from music what do you engage in?
I am currently pursuing a certificate in Computer Science at the Gambia Telecommunication Management Institute (GTMI) because I may be a producer even though I am doing music for now.
When did you release your first song?
My first song was released at a graduation ceremony at my school which served as an inspiration to the students to take up their education seriously.
Are you collaborating with top Afro Manding stars?
No, I have not collaborated with any of them yet but it is part of my plans to do so. I am currently working on a mix-tape which will be released very soon.
