Let me be the mann

Oh let me be the mann

Babyyyyy let me be your mann ayyyy

Woy woy woy oohhhh.

Let me be the mann.

 

[Verse 1]

Mak mom la won

Dem funeka def luneka Musung foh

She calls me baby boo Teh musung nyo hulo

Lum buga wahkma ko Ma outiko indil koko

Paco buko hala munehko amna serrei coco

Suma yaye dafko over like Nan Ma nengko yoneh guru

Why ndekeh yoo Fatou yoo

Mann dundey Na yakarr Fokneh ndo bi maako mom.

Fogon naneh mala mo saiyel Amal Ma dome

Y papam banj na gorubii Banjna kema done

Yayam naan guewel du seyak suma dome…

 

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]

Y papam banj na gorubii Banjna kema done

[Verse 3]

This is the story of my life

She is the one I wanna wife

She gave me hopes in this life

Now this ropes won’t be tied So!

What we gonna do Where we gonna go

Baby reason let me know

Am going crazy am going nuts

Should we hide or should we run?

Should we take it on the low?

We did a lot you already know

Life is complicated now Devastated now I feel rejected now

I need someone to talk and do some justice now!

Why ndekeh yoo Fatou yoo

Mann dundey Na yakarr

Fokneh ndo bi maako mom…

Fogon naneh mala mo saiyel Amal Ma dome

Y papam banj na gorubii Banjna kema done

Yayam naan guewel du seyak suma dome…

[Chorus Add leaps till fade]

Ebrahim Suso aka Trobul Smallz has undoubtedly been one of The Gambia’s astonishing reggae dancehall cum hip-hop stars in recent years. He was born on the 9th of August 1986 into the legendary griot family also known as ‘Jalos’ in Mandinka.

Prince Talib, as he is fondly called, is the grandson of the late Alieu Suso, a renowned Kora maker and player in The Gambia and the sub-region in his generation.  Credited as a game-changing artiste, especially in the hip-hop domain, T Smallz grew up in the coastal town of Bakau. Due to his creative style, he has managed to horn his skills as a phenomenal instrumentalist cum rapper.

At a very tender age, Smallz developed keen interest in music.  All what he found around him during those days were local instruments of different kind such as Kora, ‘Djembeh’, ‘Balafon’ which he later learned to play under the watchful eyes of his grandpa.

His first song ‘Rise n’ Shine’ was recorded and produced at Adent Studios in Bakoteh now made popular by T. Smallz and his rap peers as BK City, where he now lives with his parents and siblings.

Since then, he never looked back with one hit song following the other.  His super hit masterpiece entitled ‘Gis Nga Yow’ featuring one of The Gambia’s finest sensations- Marion and Tam 50 dominated the airwaves and night joints in and around the country.  The release of this song ‘Gis Nga Yow’ was a huge success and fans both young and old always shout-out ‘Gis Nga Yow’ whenever the singer is in sight.

Following huge success of this hit song ‘Gis Nga Yow’ and several others like ‘Ring On Ya Finger’ featuring Rugie, ‘God’s Will’ featuring Pa Omar Jack and ‘Wahang Baneh’, the multi-talented star went on to release a mixtape which equally proved to be a phenomenon especially among school going kids and on the streets.
