Written by Eddy Jatta


Last week, superstar rapper ST, aka Brikama Boyo, celebrated his birthday with a low-key private dinner with a few close friends and family at the luxurious Big Apple lounge in Kololi. 

The guest list of the star-studded event included the high and mighty in Gambian music, politics and entertainment.  

Famous socialites, the Fatty sisters, also known as the Gambian Kardashians, and former State House Senior Communication Officer and now OIC Gambia Brand and Communication Manager, Nfally Fadera, were also in attendance.  

Essa Faal of the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission also made it on the guest list. 

According to a source close to the Singhatehs, the exclusive dinner event was the brainchild of the musician’s wife and mother of his only child, Binta Tamba. 

In her birthday tribute, Mrs Singhateh had sweet and loving things to say about ‘’my partner for life’’.  

‘’He is my best friend and also my worst enemy’’, she added, saying that, ‘’ most of you guys don’t know ST is a very humble person, down to earth, very serious with his art, and very funny’’. 

While admitting that they often fight just like any other young couple, Binta thanked the husband for ‘giving me a lovely baby boy’.  

A source who was in attendance said it was strictly invitation based and all guests were given face masks.
