Gambia: Mighty Joe's Album Launcha Huge Success

It will be regarded as one of the most successful album ever lunched in The Gambia. Mighty Joe also known as 'Tha Tsunami' last Saturday performed in front of hundreds of fans and music enthusiasts during his double album release. After undergoing superb promo on both the print and electronic media some weeks ago, the turnout at the venue was beyond expectation as the Alliance Franco Gambienne was full to the brim.

As promised, many people were given the album after purchasing the entrance ticket. Due to the popular demand for his CD album, it got finished just some minutes after 11pm. His co-artists started performing early on stage before Mighty himself took to the stage, to give what is described to be his best concert ever. The artists turn-out was just exceptional and almost all the rising stars graced the event.

The most touching part of the album launching was when the young artist's mother came on stage to congratulate her son for the good work. They were seen hugging each other on stage and they could notkeep back their tears. Many artists performed by play back while Mighty Joe performed with the famous Humanity Band.

Immediately after Mighty Joe played his last song and said goodbye to the fans, this reporter managed to have a word with him at his dressing room.

His words: "I told you several times that I am well loved by the Gambian people and you saw it for yourself today. At the moment I just want to say let them watch out more from me and my albums will soon be available in all music stores in the Gambia. I want to thank everybody who has make the launching a success because I cannot do it alone as I want to say special thanks to the media. Big thanks to my family, they have been so supportive. I am really overjoyed atthe moment and I am even out of words."
