DJ Gentle from West Coast Radio has called on his colleagues in the music industry to build love and unity among themselves, adding that if more unity is built, the more support the industry will have. He said as a DJ, one has to be creative, “because you are there for the people, and should do what the people want”.

DJ Gentle who was speaking in an interview with Entertainment over the weekend said he is a DJ by profession, and he became a DJ since 2008. According to him, since he became a DJ, he has never travelled outside, but he has embarked on a lot of countrywide tours where he made a lot of promotions on music.

DJ Gentle is one of the youngest and hottest DJs in town with many fans behind him. I am an independent DJ with my own crew called Feel No Pain Sound. DJ Gentle was born in Jarra Bureng in the Lower  River Region, but was originally from Badibu Konteh Kunda in the North Bank Region. “I am always here for my fans”, he declared.

The young Gambian DJ added that apart from being a DJ, he is engaged in other thing like networking  and IT. He called on Gambian musicians to take their own way and stop imitating foreigners.

“Musicians should be proud of themselves, and let them sing something educative to the public. Let them take their own culture and always promote their music”, he said, citing examples like Jalex and Badibunka.

Gentle said that the only problem he has is finance to have his own sound system, noting that he always has difficulty in terms of going for programmes. Gentle therefore appeal to companies, organizations as well as individuals to help him to get his own sound system. Whoever wants to give support to the DJ can reach him on 6627788.
