KILLA Ace-700x465


After recording a viral hit rap song against the status quo in Banjul, headed by dictator Yahya Jammeh, Gambian rapper Killa Ace has lost his hip-hop sponsored radio show with Africell, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal. The show, which was meant to promote Gambian rap, was being aired on Africell radio, known here in Banjul as Afri radio. The rapper was on the payroll of Africell. His recent song exposing Jammeh’s power abuses, excesses, one man rule and endemic corruption has angered the management of Africell to yank all Killa Ace’s songs from their radio station. In essence, Africell has banned all Killa Ace songs to be played on air.

“Africell has cut ties with Killa Ace just because he speaks truth to power. They are threatening staff not to play his songs again on the radio.  Even the radio show Killa Ace used to host with them and musical files, he had on their system have been deleted. Africell is an extension of the corrupt Jammeh regime. Jammeh is behind this blacklist imposed against Killa Ace. All local stations in The Gambia have been warned not to play Killa Ace’s songs,” said a source in Banjul.

When asked what kind of working relationship existed between Killa Ace and Africell? Further asked if there was any contractual agreement signed between the rapper and Africell, our source remarked: “Killa Ace was employed as a radio presenter. His job was to promote home made hip hop.  And they were sponsoring us on our street rap battles, which is a platform for young rappers.”

Contacted for comment, the exiled rapper Killa Ace had this to say: “Peace bro.” Ace wouldn’t comment on the latest move taken by Africell to let him go. He now lives in Dakar, Senegal.

Shortly after the story hits the news stand, Killa Ace reached us via Facebook and this is what he had to say: ” I have not received any official communication from Africell. But I saw the same story published by Whatson Gambia alleging that Africel has banned all my songs from being played on their network. I would hope that is not true as it will be a form of retaliation against me for exercising my freedom of speech. But I cannot confirm or deny the story at this time as I do not have any first hand knowledge about it.”
