Barely less than 48 hours after his comeback concert which a lot of observers believe was a great success, Gibou Balla Gaye took to social media to attack some prominent personalities in the Music industry who did not make it to his show. He attacked ST The Brikama boyo for not accepting his own set and telling him that he will pass by if time permits him. Gibou also attcked Radio presenter Sister for not showing up and promoting another event on the same night as his. His post triggered a lot of reactions including one from Mr. Dembo Jobarteh, ST's Manager. After these reaction, Gibou went back to social media to apologize. Find below his apology.
The amount of messages coming in have been too much about this issue, I feel I owe my fans an Apology n' everyone I've offended in any way.
I was away for a while, Coming back from retirement should have a positive impact and not negative on this industry.
I can't force people to see things how I see them or have good intentions for me like I have towards everyone.
Being selfish always works for a person but that isn't how I was raised, when I see something that would benefit someone n I have the power to send it your way... that's exactly what I do. 1 person can't open all the doors God blessed everyone with something.
Please forgive me guys, from presenters ,artists to managements, organisations formed to help our music , etc .. even Dembo for making that racial comment I forgive u n want u to forgive me too ..
I've counted 5 Gee Diss tracks the past week even the artists dissing me I seek for forgiveness. . Balalen ma. . If this was back then I would have the time to go into the booth etc etc but right now it's bigger than that n I want u to understand that... Our industry is so left behind n' the more we continue to fight each other the more it drags us.
An advice to these upcoming artists ..
It's cool to be confident, it's okay to have battle lines but beefs gotta be legit.
1 thing I've notice is a lot of us lack loyalty n' if u want to survive in this game/business it helps a lot. .
#LastPost .. From now on You'll only be getting Music, shows , promo, video updates n' nothing more... its a promise ..
