Although T Smallz enjoys a massive fan base back home, playing big gigs for high profile fans like his country`s president Dr Yahaya Jammeh he describes the music industry in the Gambia to be in its infancy compared to Nigeria .But he believes they have lots of young and vibrant talents out there. Gambia is yet to have a proper record label or an organization that is mainly music concerned. So they are growing towards that and hopefully one of them will break through and create that awareness to the masses worldwide..
Smallz Suso plans to do more collaboration with Nigerian acts! In fact that is going to be on a different level.. Not only collaborating on songs but also collaborating on shows etc. and of course Building the bridge between the Gambia and Nigeria.
