Badu B commonly known as Gangalee is launching his long awaited album this Friday February 15th. However Badu reveals to journalists that he may not be well known at the moment in the Gambia but he was in the Gambian music business since the 90s. Infact his music now is way stronger than before.
Badu B who was in a crew called the 'Dallas Boys' is currently in the Gambia to release his 9 track album called 'Rise'
He said all is set for the 15 February grand launching at Alliance Franco. He was quick to say that the album is a matured album and it consists of positive messages.
Badu B said after releasing his album he would be involved in lot of projects among them sponsoring the needy ones.
When asked why he names his album 'Rise' he said this is because the album is full of positive messages for his people and urges the people to listen to the messages in the album. I'm sure they will enjoy it, they are strictly Reggae songs.
Badu B said some of the songs in the album were recorded at Shy Boy Entertainment, some at Mandela records and most of the songs recorded at Sunland records of Hakeem. "I got videos as well and they are shot professionally by the Tedugal video production company", Said Badu B.
Badu B said he got very good collaborative songs with artists like Saka Babs. A collaboration with artists like Pa Mboob and the people should know that he worked very hard on this album.
He said the radio advertisements are on and he is expecting to feature lot of Gambian artists on the day of the launching. Among them would be Jali Madi, Benjain, Rebellion, PaPa Lenghty, Hard Breaker, Sissasy, Ras Askia and many more other Gambian artists. He said all the performances would be backed by a live band performance by the Afro stars.
"I mostly listens to one of the songs called "we gonna make it" in the album. I did that song 2 times because Shy Boy recorded the song for me and Hakim remixed the song, that song is for Gambian artists themselves telling them to be conscious with their singing. Let them sing something genuine, something that can help the younger generation.
He said the album will cost D100 a copy but any body who comes to the launching would have a CD, and after the launching the album would be distributed in some of the Major Supermarkets in the country.
