Gambia: ENC to Celebrate Second Anniversary of Back State Show On Saturday

Preparations are at high gear as ENC and the whole entourage prepare to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of "Back Stage', a popular radio show on West Coast Radio 1. The radio show, introduced in 2012, is undoubtedly the most talked-about Gambian dancehall show on air. It features latest Gambians dancehall vibes and interviews with personnel's in the dancehall fraternity of the Gambia.

All is set for this year's anniversary at the Alliance Franco and as said by presenter ENC the show is going to leave a mark in the minds of the audience as the performances will be backed by a live band.

Briefing Foroyaa Art and Music ahead of the big event on Saturday, ENC said back stage comes to take the Gambian music to another level. The show, he went on, is the first radio show in the Gambia to celebrate its anniversary live. The show will avail both the performers and the spectators the chance to meet each other, interact and fraternize. He said the night would show the performances of big named musicians like, Jali Madi, Gee, T-Smallz, Baddibunka, Bro K, Cyco, Silky Crise, Lull Raa, amongst others and there will be a free style segment too were unknown artists can come and do their part.

In reacting to the critics that only dancehall artists should be invited to perform, the club and radio DJ pointed out that the program cannot be a strickly dancehall show because of the few consistent dancehall artists available. He thanks the proprietor of West Coast Radio, Peter Gomez, for his support to the event and concludes by calling on all the lovers of Gambian music to attend the show in their large numbers as it will go a long way in taking the Gambian dancehall to the next level.
