Benjamin - Gambia's Dancehall Heartthrob

Reggae dancehall star-Benjamin, is apparently one of the finest and famous young Gambian sensation to watch out for. Born Kawsu Ceesay, this sprouting star's musical career began at childhood. It was not a coincidence that he found himself in the centre of a Dancehall loving town-Brikama, which is home to some of the country's finest talents like-Rebellion D' Recaller, Hurricane, ST, and Philanthropist you name it.

He became a music lover from a very young age and spent most of his time watching reggae music videos and listening to dancehall music. This later motivated him to develop more interest in music. But it was not until he turned 13, and moved to Brikama otherwise called 'Sateba' when he realised his hidden talents .

His brother Hurricane was a great source of inspiration to him as he often gave Benjamin the opportunity to prove his talent to music enthusiasts on stage. From then, the youngster took a giant step towards his dreams. This naturally talented young Gambian musician can hopefully achieve stardom if given the necessary moral and financial support. "I am called by the music and I have no option but to answer. Music is in my life," Benjamin said in one of his in terviews.

Benjamin as he is widely known, has been featured in a number of collabo joints, in most of which he tops the chart with his melodious songs. He is also a recording artist with the Block Ent. Benjamin also dropped a track on the 'Guidance Riddim',which has been released by the label as well as on 'The Answering Riddim' too that will be coming out soon. Watch out for this inspirational star on the rise.
