Following last Thursday’s presidential election, Killa Ace’s fans are planning a hero’s welcome for him when he returns to The Gambia soon.
The famous rapper fled to neighbouring Senegal after the release of Ku Boka C Geta G, a song critical of the Jammeh government.
Journalist Sainey Marenah described him as the Bob Marley of The Gambia.
He said: “His music represents change and freedom. He's The Gambia's Bob Marley.”
In a recent interview with a European TV channel, Killa Ace revealed that he fled to Senegal with his family because of constant death threats he was receiving from men associated with the NIA.
Less than two years into his exile, his marriage collapsed and his wife and daughter returned to The Gambia.
According to the rapper, his daughter is very excited over the election results.
He said: “Was talking to my baby girl on the phone and she told me that during the elections she was praying for Adama Barrow to win so she can she her dad again.”
Killa Ace is expected to perform at Adama Barrow’s inauguration in January.
