Gambia: Fafadi Delighted With Ganders Initiative, Urged Others to Emulate

The Manding King Fafadi aka Kelefa has vividly expressed his delight with Dr Olugander's initiative of forming a charitable organization whose aim will be to support and take part in national development initiatives designed to help the poor and needy communities.

The Ziguinchur born artist was speaking to Foroyaa as he came face to face with his Gambian fans for the first time in 2013 when he answered to the international call of his colleague, Dr Olugander on Friday at the East Park.

While thanking Olugander for his initiative, Fafadi assured him of his support anytime it is needed in The Gambia. "Olugander got a nice and clean heart. I'm so proud to see an African artist doing things like this because everybody knows the visually impaired people need our help. We are going to support him and that is why I'm coming for free", he told this reporter.

He continued: "If Africans themselves do not develop Africa, nobody will come and develop it for them. What this boy (Olu) did here today is very good and should be emulated by everyone who has the ability to do it",

The Manding warrior said it has been a couple of months since he last appeared on stage as he is tirelessly busy working on his forthcoming album called "The African Hero". He said he is busy writing as he is concerned with what is presently happening in Casamance, the violence and injustice.
