Gambian rising Afro Manding star Jali Madi Kanuteh has left the country for Europe since one week ago.
On March 29th, Jali Madi wrote on his facebook page that he has arrived safely in Europe but did not state the purpose of his trip.
Pape Cisse WaawAfrica on March 30th tagged Jali Madi on a photo they (Pape Cisse and Jali Madi are in) with the following message “Tic Tac! Look who is here in Waaw Africa festival main concert. Artist Jalimadi Kanuteh coming straight from Gambia to here So we r ready and what about u?”
GT Entertainment news contacted Jali Madi for more information about his trip to Europe but to no avail. Even though Jali Madi has not said the purpose of his trip, Pape Cisse’s post confirms that Jali is in Europe to attend the Waaw Africa Festival. He has posted photos of him and some band members at rehearsals and sound check for the Rentukka Waaw African Festival in Finland which was geared to raise funds for the “Talibes” in Senegal.
Jali also proceeded to Berlin in Germany 2 days ago but it’s not known how long he will be staying there or in Europe as a whole.
The Afro Manding sensation whose melodies voice is irresistible was recently signed by Saul Soundz Joluv Arts and released his first album on Gambia’s Independence Day which was attended by high dignitaries from all walks of life in The Gambia and a massive turn out.
GT Entertainment news reached out to both Jali Madi and Mr Saul Sowe (Proprietor of Saul sounds Joluv Art) and had no response from either party until the time of going to press.
