First Anti-Dictatorship Music On Gambia Hits The Internet

jammeh2(JollofNews) – What is believed to be the first ever anti-tyranny (some would say anti-Jammeh) music video on the struggle to regain democracy in Gambia has hits the internet.

The video was done by a group of artists believed to be Senegambians.

It is not clear what their nationalities are exactly.

“How many years the people have been oppressed?

“If we don’t agree so we have to protest.

“We have to handle our own destiny
Yahya JammehYahya Jammeh
“So it’s the right time to fight against impunity…” the lyrics go.

The music video, titled: Against Impunity, is sang in both Wollof and English. The artists go by the name Xuman, Djily Bagdad, Tiat & Ombre Zion.

Besides the hits on Youtube, with views above 330, on facebook the video is going viral with Gambians both in and out of the country sharing it on their walls.

There is unanimous applause by those who have viewed it, with some directing their anger on the home based musicians who have all these years been praising Yahya Jammeh despite reports of abuses by his regime.  

"Rhymes for sum mo' politicians. Life is still worth actions," notes the director and uploaded of the video on Youtube, Iris Audiovisuel.

“By the time u guys read this song, we be keep on praying for all the souls that still go through injustice and impunity,” they add.

This development comes as report of arrest and detention by Yahya Jammeh’s secrete police continue by the day.

The latest victim is his former Minister of Finance, Mambury Njie.

Vocal Imam and critic of human rights violations in Gambia, Baba Leigh, still languishes in prison without any charge by the Yahya Jammeh regime.

Scarlett pimpernel and Gampatriot, I am very sorry for not getten back with you all this while.I was busy wth School works ofcouse!

Let's get back to business,My Uncle has secured a lawyer and his charges are none by the family members who dont want to share them with the general public yet. As far as the Goverment further investigation in still going on. So, we should be patience.

APRC, supporters has come out to Gainako.com asking the Authorities to Pardon the Imam. because the President of the republic of the Gambia,his excellencies Sheikh.Dr.Prof.Alh.Yahya A.J.J.Jammeh,has the power to pardon anyone at anytime.

We do not know the charges yet,but we can ask our leader to have mercy on him. I hope after he got release Gambians Imams will then talk with mam Baba Leigh to advise him positively and objectively. Now my friend you can open your eyes

Quoting RKK/LK: ". I've school work load"
Lying is not easy and will never last. Today, RKK/LK is a student. LOL. It is hard to keep all the lies in place once you start lying. Keep it up bro. Your boss the Kanilai Monster will soon have competition from you. I am proud of you guys. You keep the Gambian flag flying high in the Lying Olympics.

@Radiokangkang
I'm waiting for your comments and to enlightened me from darkness. What surprised me though is that your comments don't seem to tally from someone who is going to school. An intelligent and rational student will not make such irresponsible comments unless you are blind with loyalty or out of touch with reality. See no evil, hear no evil , say no evil; that's you. Now I make you laugh again. Salam!

Super lyrics!! Awesome video!!! And a very beautiful tune!!!

I have always loved Gambian music from santay alla, da fugitive, black nature, aada gee posse', born africa, panachi chaw,flying lion n crew, Dj cora, Chambion DJ, u name them

This group's tune is beautiful. Some of their wollof lyrics sound to me like senegalese wollof accent.. am not really sure. need to listen to it one more time

I do know that Jammeh was not rattled by nov 11th events. Am not sure if music can ever rattle him.

But one thing I do know is; this thing rocks my bones

Some knows who the members are
