Come October 20, Gambian music star will hit the music industry by releasing a compilation album with big artistes, followed by the launching of the album, entitled Fateleku.

In an exclusive chat with Entertainment at his resident in London Corner, Pap Larey said the album, which contained 7 tracks will hit the world as soon as it is released, adding that the production took two years.

The Gambian music tycoon told Entertainment that his plan is to find ways and means to see how the Gambia music will move forward compared to other countries.

Pap Larey added that he gained a lot of experience in music during his travel to the western world, noting that those countries are far ahead of The Gambia in music.

Pap Larey advised the upcoming musicians to make more research if they want to become good musicians.

The experienced music star added that for the music industry to have quality musicians, the country should have a school of music so that upcoming artistes will study music and find it easy in the profession.

The youth centres in the country should have music instruments for the benefit of those who want to become musicians in the future so that they can be trained there, he said.

The Gambian musician emphasises on the copyright law which he said is very helpful and will protect the music from being copied by other people.

The copyright law will deter those who use other people’s music as their own, he says.
