The Guewel singer has safely landed in the city for what is set to be the country’s first official representation at the mega reggae event.
Describing his mood from Abidjan, Smallz feels elated and blessed about the development.
“It’s a wonderful feeling and at the same time a blessing seeing all these people from all over the world representing their countries.
The fact that The Gambia is part of it is a blessing. When I arrived here, I saw the flags of the different countries all around including the Gambia flag, I feel great about myself, my music and my work.”
The five days event brings together music personalities from all over the world and Smallz is ready to use that as a motivation to sell his image and the name of his country.
“Definitely it is going to bring attention to the music industry if they see me perform and the people like it. The next thing they see or do is to see what’s happening in The Gambia. I see it as selling the name of The Gambia and Gambian Music in another country.”
Meanwhile, the Katato, as he is fondly called, has returned in time for his performance at the GCCI International trade at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
