In 2009 a wave of young talented producers started popping up in the young and immature Gambian music scene. A new movement was born.
A new sound had been created, and Gambia was on its way to finding its path in the world music scene. In a popular housing estate in The Greater Banjul Area, 20 minutes from the capital city was one of those emerging young producers, and his name came to be known as Ja Beatz.
Born Muhammed L. Suso in 1987, Ja Beatz is recognized as one of the top go-to guys when it comes to beat production. His versatility has made him stand out among his peers, delving in hip hop, R&B, Reggae, Dancehall and Afro beats, making him one of the most sought after producers in the nation of 2 million, known as the Smiling Coast of Africa.
