Smalls, also known as Katato has staged concert shows in Germany, Norway and other Scandinavian countries and is now set to hear his album songs released on the global stage.
He told journalists during a press conference at the Alliance Francaise recently: “This visit is centered on having an international release for my projects. Thank God I did the songs and I am going to have an international release. I am not saying that T Smalls is gonna put his songs on the ITunes and then people in the world can have it but this is more of a digital distribution. Let’s say for example, if Busy Signal is releasing an album there are channels it has to go through and I am lucky to have those this time. That was the main idea that made me go to Europe. I was also working with Sweden’s biggest reggae artists called Kabtenrod who is also a music producer. I have been going to Europe and people have been saying that I am an international but I think now is the right time that I can say my music is going to be digitally distributed internationally and if people say I am international now, I am going to smile at that.”
Smalls who also took his time to call for peace and integration in the music industry stressed that there are a lot of issues that need to be addressed. He said all artistes in the Gambian music industry must come under one platform and work towards the success of Gambian music. He urged under-ground artistes to emulate top artistes in The Gambia and abroad while challenging them to be committed and remain dedicated to their work. Success, he reminded them, does not come the easy way.]]>
