What’s On-Gambia receives death threat…and it’s from a young girl


What’s On Gambia has received an open death threat from a Jali Madi fan.  The editor of the online magazine is now urging the afro-manding star to speak out against the girl responsible for the threat. She has been identified as Awa Jasmine Camara, a former student of the West African International School. 

The threat came following our Facebook post that Jali Madi is in a love triangle. Awa wrote on the afro-manding  singer’s Facebook wall: “If I own a gun and knw d admin of whats on gambia i'll shoot his/her ass to death....fenn rek lafi guy nekea,gambia is a peaceful country bt pple like dis always push cool pple to d limit.” 

“Such type of threats cannot be tolerated,” said the editor of What’s On-Gambia.  He continued: “Media interest in celebrities is legitimate. If you are a celebrity you will have to deal with some kind of media report in your career.” 

The editor went further to say: “Celebrities are famous people, with a fan base. If they choose to do something in the public eye, then it is going to be reported about. The problem with our celebrities is that they don’t know how to handle media reports and what to write on social networking sites.” 

When asked if What’s On-Gambia have reported the death threat to the police, the editor said: “At this moment, we have no intention to press charges against her. But we’re urging Jali Madi to caution the young girl. As a celebrity he shouldn’t allow people to use his Facebook wall to send death threats.” 

What’s On-Gambia was established in December, 2012 by Gambians in the diaspora. It’s now the country’s most popular online entertainment magazine, with over 50, 000 monthly unique visitors and 67 million page views (Google analytics-July 2013). The magazine has scored nearly 9,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook, making it the country’s most popular media house on Facebook.
