Mar 18, 2021, 1:53 PM

The minister  of Tourism and Culture Hamat N.K. Bah has sent a message of condolence to the family of late Thione Seck – a renowned Senegalese singer and musician who died on Sunday.

Below reads Mr. Bah’s message:

“It is with utmost grief, and a deep sense of loss that I write as Minister of Tourism and Culture to convey to you sincere condolences from the Government and People of The Gambia, on the sudden death of Thione Seck, on Sunday 14 March 2021, in Dakar.

With Thione’s demise, Senegambia has lost a great and highly talented composer, singer and philosopher whose repertoire of hundreds of songs have entertained and enlightened generations of SeneGambians. Thione’s death is a great loss.

He held shows in Banjul frequently, and supported many Gambian state institutions in fund raising activities over the past two decades. Furthermore, Thione sang about issues relevant to the cohesion and unity of the people of Senegambia. Therefore, he used his art to unify our people. Needless to say, this is indeed a worthy cause for which we will continue to remember him for.

We will continue to pray for him so that his soul will rest in perfect peace, and for Allah to continue to guide and protect the family and entire people of Senegal and The Gambia.

Whilst respectfully submitting for your kind consideration and for further transmission to the relevant authorities in the Republic of Senegal, please accept the assurances of my highest consideration and esteem.”
