Austria-based Gambian singer, Deejay Limbo was recently in the country to meet family and friends â€“ and also to promote his music.
â€œI had lots of radio interviews. I also had a show with DJ Pisces at Wow and got a chance to meet my fans,â€ he told Whatâ€™s On-Gambia.
Limbo, who left The Gambia for Europe in 2007, started singing around late 2010 with some friends including his current producer, Sheriff Akatah.
He said: â€œI was just doing it for fun and was not expecting it to go far. I was once offered a record deal by G-Notes Records (G-Unit sub label), but it didn't materialized because of some legalissues.â€
The Latrikunda German- born singer has already rubbed shoulders with big reggae stars like Etana, Romain Virgo, Tarrus Riley, Gyptian, Aidonia and Konshens.
He went to The Gambia with a mission: to share his music and also to establish a fan base. During his short stay, Deejay Limbo worked with some of the best promoters in the music business.
â€œThe Gambian music industry is rapidly growing, and many foreign-based Gambian artists are going home to promote their music and doing collaborations with home-based musicians. Our aim is to take Gambian music to the international scene,â€ said the summertime hit maker.
Deejay Limbo is now in studio working on his new mixtape that he plans to release in both Europe and The Gambia.
â€œI want to drop a mixtape this year, by the grace of God!â€
