Benjamin Taking Gambian Dancehall to Another Height

It's an undisputed fact that Benjamin is one of the fastest rising Gambian dancehall artistes at the moment. His ability in the studio booth, on stage and on the mic are a clear manifestation of his remarkable talent in reggae dancehall .


Born Kawsu Ceesay, this sprouting star's musical career began since his childhood days. It was not a coincidence that he found himself in the center of a Dancehall loving town-Brikama, which is home to some of the country's finest talents like the Don of the game-Rebellion D' Recaller, Hurricane, you name it.

Benjamin's ever increasing fan base in the country is just amazing. He is loved by the youths, elders and above all reggae queens. According to many, he has been a keen music lover at an early age and that he spends most of his time watching reggae music videos and listening to dancehall music. This later motivated him , thus paving the way to develop more interest in music. But it was not until he turned 13. This period however marks a turning point in his life as it was at this age that he started to realize and pursue his hidden talent and destiny.

He was a member of the Frontline Crew, a music movement that produces some of the Gambia's finest reggae dancehall stars. From then, the youngster took a giant step towards his dreams. This naturally talented young Gambian musician is no doubt the king of the dancehall at the moment as rightly put in one of his songs. "I am called by the music and I have no option but to answer. Music is in my life," says Benjamin in one of his interviews.

Benjamin's popularity has gone beyond the borders of this country and is widely known and featured in a number of collabo projects. Most of these projects, he tops the chart with his melodious songs and is also a recording artist with the Block Ent. He earlier dropped a track on the 'Guidance Riddim', which has been released by the label, as well as on 'The Answering Riddim' which all stormed the airwaves. Watch out for more sounds from this inspirational star.
