The album, expected to be released around the middle of 2012, comprises both mbalax and afro-manding. It contains eight tracks.

Speaking in an interview with Entertainment recently at the Block Entertainment Studio in Pipe line, MC Mbye said he started music since 2000 with a group called Black Acoustic living in Bakau New Town.

“We released an album in 2005 entitled Under 17,” MC Mbye said, adding that in 2006 they also released a compilation album called the ‘AU Summit’.

“In 2008 we decided to separate and in 2009 I signed a contract with the Block Entertainment Studio for five years,” Mbye said.

In the same year, the star MC released his first single called ‘Chelli Gambia’.
