He is one of the most controversial singers in the country – but now Daddy Bostin wants to take his music to the global scene.
The reggae dancehall singer, who was once incarcerated at the Mile II prison after being accused of drug trafficking, has told What’s On-Gambia that music is now his priority.
“I went through a lot. I was accused of drug possession and prison break, but thank God the judge found me innocent and ordered for my immediate release.”
Daddy Bostin was born in Pipeline. He launched his music career with the Holy Family band in 2010. His debut single, Nike Air was released in 2011.
Following his brush with the law, the pint-sized singer entered studio to lash out at his critics.
“I dropped the single, Them Think We Dead, because they think I am no longer returning to the music scene,” he said.
Who are Daddy Bostin’s fans?
According to him: “Everyone listens to my songs – both young and old. Now I want to make it big and take Gambian music further.”
Daddy Bostin is also popular in Casamance, where he is actively taking part in talks to bring peace in the region.
“I was in the jungle with my crew to negotiate peace with the MFDC rebels. They really appreciated it and I’m in constant contact with them. What people failed to understand is that Casamance is not fighting for independence – all that they want is development.”
The Pipeline star also revealed that he is working with his management team to start a multi-media center.
