In 2008, a mainstream Gambian audience got its first taste of the music and artistry of emerging artiste, Jah Cause (Abuke Chabu).

Few years later, he performed at a local show headlined by one of Guinea Bissau’s finest stars- Sylvester Gomez, where they also did a collaboration accompanied by a music video. Since then, the rising star is showing no sign of slowing down with hits-after-hit.

Just like the case of most established artistes nowadays, music was never far from the ears of singer Jah Cause as a youngster growing up.

That self-assured nature came to light during an interview with The Point, where he spoke about his music and take on the current music scene in the country.

It was in 2015, when he dropped his debut album titled ‘My World’, which was strictly an afro wave beat.

“I sing in my native Manjago language and people appreciate my songs. I released my second album titled ‘Oumundu Njii’ and the launching was held on December 13, 2019. It comprises hit tracks and was officially released on all digital platforms on 31 January. So now it can be accessed on all digital platforms by just typing my name”, he stated.

Jah Cause is also set to stage a mega concert on June 27 at Q City. “The event is part of better promoting my latest album. The event will also be part of my third year anniversary. I will also be releasing my new video ‘Me and You’, a love song very soon”

Commenting on the country’s music scene, Jah Cause spoke highly of the current trend of music in country. However, the afro wave star calls for more stakeholder participation to push it to another level. Watch out for this astonishing afro wave sensation.
