Gambian Talents webmaster Ebou Njie who is also the proprietor of More Fyah Production in Dallas Texas is the only Gambian nominated by the African Muzic Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) 2015.
AFRIMMA is the sole award ceremony in the Diaspora that caters to all musical genres including but not limited to: Afrobeats, Assiko, Bongo, Decale, Funana, Genge, Highlife, Hiplife, Kwaito, Lingala and Soukous. Afrimma’s purpose is to create a platform that promotes the diversity of African music by bringing influential artists from different African countries for a night of celebration.
DJ Ebou, an advance degree holder in Business and IT is one of the best and most established African/Reggae DJs in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area.
He runs a sound system and music label “More Fyah Productions” with few DJs and artists working under him. In the past 15 years, DJ Ebou has released several reggae/Dancehall/Afro-pop mix tapes and compilations and has literally backed all major international reggae artists during their concerts in the Dallas area. He has also played in all major reggae clubs, bars and restaurants in the metro Dallas area.
His latest project was the opening of ALDEEZ (an Afro-Caribbean bar and restaurant) which has started gaining momentum.
Ebou is a true Gambian talent who is worth celebrating. He did and still continues to do a lot of philanthropic activities especially for anything Gambian but always like to stay behind the scenes. He delivers more than he talks and his work speaks for itself. The AFRIMMA award has 27 categories including Traditional artist, Best male artist, Best female artist, Best African DJ-USA etc with big names like Wizkid Nigeria, Carlou D from Senegal, Soweto Gospel choir from South Africa, Flavor from Nigeria, Tunakie from Namibia, Eddy Kenzo from Uganda, Jaguar from Kenya, Vivian Child from Senegal etc.
Fortunately and unfortunately, Ebou is the only Gambian nominated in the 2015 AFRIMMA Award. He is nominated under the Best African DJ-USA. The few questions that continue to linger in our mind are, Why are Gambians not nominated in the other categories? Is DJ Ebou the only Gambian who meets the AFRIMMA Standard and criteria? Whereas countries like Nigeria has several nominations in the different Categories, The Gambia has only one nominee in the whole Award in the person of DJ Ebou. He is indeed worth celebrating.
