In 2013, 2014 and 2015 Black Moose won Kingsize Magazine’s award for DJ of the year, and that made him the only DJ in Sweden to have ever won the award three years in a row.

He started working at Sweden’s biggest Hip-hop radio show, ‘En Kärleksattack På Svensk HipHop, SR Metropol’ together with well-known journalist Ametist.

The headphone company, SMS Audio, owned by American rapper 50 Cent noticed Black Moose’s talent and hard work, and made him part of the camp, which was à great achievement in his career.

 He is now an official SMS Audio ambassador. DJ Black Moose is the first ever DJ in the whole of Scandinavia to make it to the BET Hip Hop Award Swedencypher 2016.

As à Gambian Swedish, he’s proud to raise the Gambian flag anywhere he goes.

Furthermore, he recently hosted Fat Joe and went on tour with him in Sweden, à tour that was off the hook.

He is on the move again, and these times in West Africa where The Gambia, Senegal will be his first stop with other top DJs at the end of the year.

He is looking forward to get it down with his beloved nation for the first time.

Beyond his music knowledge, work ethic, dedication and talent, one thing is for sure, Black Moose definitely knows how to get the party started
