Featuring A2; Di Fulani King

Friday, March 16, 2018

Known for his positive, uplifting and enlightening tracks about life and taking a better road to success, Dancehall artiste A2 aka Di Fulani King is one of the fast-rising Gambian stars on the path to stardom.

Born Ebrima Jallow but musically A2, he made his debut appearance in the country’s dancehall scene couple of years ago and since then he is showing no sign of slowing down.

The songster, who released his debut single titled ‘All Over Me’ in 2014, did well as he delivers poignant lyrics over a sensational beat produced by Stylzz Records throughout the single.

However, this period marks an important milestone in his musical career and that has even enabled him to attract more fans among youth in the country. ‘All Over Me’ is still a hit in the country, probably thanks to the engineered expertise of Stylzz Records.

Later on, he dropped his second single titled ‘Changes’ recorded at Shyboy Records. Being inspired into music at a tender age, A2 quickly got more involved in music, listening to the uplifting and enlightening sounds by great reggae musicians which gave him more motivation in his career.

In 2015, he released a number of hits including; ‘Wait 4 U’, Next To Me’ and ‘Gal Come Wine’. Then came the release of his extended play titled ‘Step In’, shortly afterwards.

2016 marks an important milestone in his career, as he released and launched his debut mix tape titled; ‘Mixed Feeling’, a 21-track sound recorded at both Stylzz and Shy Boy Records. 

He immediately went on a nationwide tour to better promote his music. Besides, it was in 2016 when he made his debut appearances at the 2016 Reggae Kunda Festival, an annual reggae concert in the country. The same year, he won the Reggae Dancehall artiste of the Year at the ‘What Sa Halat Award’ and was also nominated in the category of ‘Africa Best Dancehall Artiste’ alongside various dancehall acts across Africa by Linkage awards based in the United States of America.

With more projects in the works for 2018, A2’s focused and ready showcase is musical artistry for The Gambia.
