The Soninkara Namasanou annual musical award is slated to take place tomorrow at Alliance Franco Gambienne.
The event, according to the organisers is expected to showcase the talents of Sarahule musicians both in the Gambia and abroad.
Speaking to The Standard recently as regards the award, the organisation Secretary General, Yankuba Sissoho said the audios turning-up for the day should expect a tough and competitive showdown between the competing artists.
“Believe me this year’s event is going to be the best, since the establishment of the association in 2013. We have been doing this for artists for the past years but this year’s is going to be a special edition, an edition with a difference,” he said.
He continued: “The awards are to be given to the best artist of the year, best video, best song and also best stage performer our expectation for the day is to see people come out in their large numbers to support our musicians”.
He said the organisation was also planning to embark on a nationwide tour to meet with people and discuss with them about their problems, especially the farmers in February, but due to the political impasse they couldn’t do it.
“Finally, I like to on-behalf of my organisation invite all Gambians and non-Gambians, especially the other Sarahule organisations to the event.”
