The Musa Ngum Tribute Committee was set up barely 48 hours after the demise of the legend in October of last year to help sustain his legacy and raise funds to support his family.
The project started with the establishment of a Gofundme account to raise funds for the family followed by the production of two tribute songs; one of which was released in February of this year and another one yet to be released.
The final phase will be to organize a tribute concert in October to coincide with the aniversary of Musa’s death.
The committee is glad to announce that we have raised D35,000 through our Gofundme account and individual donations.
Tomorrow June 17 at 4pm Gambia time, the committee will be handing over the money to Musa Ngum’s family at their residence in Kololi. The handing over ceremony will be attended by high ranking public officials, musicians, journalists and other stakeholders including Mr. Bai Janha, Senemi Tailor, Ousu Njie Sinyorr, Mr. Lie Ngum a.k.a Abdul Kabirr and members of the Bai Fall community of which Musa was a part.
The committee wishes to thank everybody who contributed in one way or the other towards the success of this project especially those who contributed financially and the musicians who participated in the tribute songs.
