13 Gambian artists collaborate to produce a COVID-19 vaccine theme song

EYEAFRICA TV: Banjul, THE GAMBIA:- Gambian Talents Promotions in collaboration with the Washington Department of Health and All-in Washington will be launching a Covid-19 Vaccine Theme Song Afro-Fusion version ft. featuring 13 of the most popular Gambian Musical Artists / Groups on Tuesday 25th May 2021.

According to the Executive Director of Gambian Talents Promotion, Pa Ousman Joof “the aim of the project is to encourage Gambians and West Africans to get vaccinated so that we can all go back to our normal lives”. Mr. Joof added that “since experts advised us that there is no cure for the Coronavirus as of now, the best thing to do is to get vaccinated so that we can protect ourselves and the society at large.”

The song infuses traditional Gambian melodies and contemporary instruments with the golden voices of 13 national Superstars namely; Barhama Cham, Awa Bling, Bobo Dimo, Lena, Juli Madi Kanuteh, Abu and Fafa, Singhateh Rise, Mariama Cham,  ENC, Bright Stars, Nyancho, Alieu Badara of Humanity Stars and Fula Manding.

The theme of the song is “GET VACCINATED since no one is Safe Until We Are All safe!”

The much anticipated song which was produced by Triple J at the Jlive Studios features popular Gambian artists singing in English and Local Languages encouraging people to get vaccinated and educate the masses on some of the misconceptions about the vaccine.

Speaking about the timescales of the project, Mr Joof highlighted that “this is one of several  components of the vaccine awareness campaign as we have produced 2 songs, 6 Skits and other short videos in different languages.  It started in April 2021″ and the team has been “busy producing the content all this while”.  The content which has been meticulously prepared is set for release “in piecemeal from May 25th 2021 to July 15th 2021”.

The Executive Director of GTP added that they chose to release the Afro-Fusion version on

African Liberation day 1 (May 25th at 2pm GMT) and traditional  version and other materials will follow.
