“It is also meant to interact with my fans in The Gambia normally used in broadcasts on Paradise FM. I have a huge fan base; so I see the need to come and entertain them,” he said, “I play Royal Messenger, Lady Quency, A2, Benjamin and ENC in my show. Their music is good in quality, as I work with lots of producer artistes in Jamaica, and all over the world. So we are discussing to collaborate with Gambian artistes to get the best out of them,”.
ENC reggae dancehall artistes and CEO of World Vibe Entertainment, said at the Sukuta Junctionba, the crowd had to force their way on the stage to the extent of stopping the sound for a while. He noted that Gambia reggae dancehall artistes are doing great, but promotion is lacking; that is the reason he takes it upon himself to play their songs in his show.
He continued: “We are working on putting on a big show, as an annual event in The Gambia to feature artists from The Gambia, Jamaica and other parts of the world. I am look forward to working with Gambian artistes. You can send your songs to me on firstname.lastname@example.org with good quality. I will promote it to the world.”
