Hopes for the album launch of two of Gambia’s rising young musicians – O Boy and Gambian child – have been dashed after police revoked their permit due to Covid restrictions on public gatherings.

Police told the musicians, in a letter seen by Gambiana, that “This Office writes to inform you that your request cannot be granted at the moment as the stipulated date falls within the Covid-19 restriction period”.

The duo had planned to launch their debut album on 9 April at QCity. 

Hundreds of tickets have already been sold as some of their fans travelled as far as the United States to grace the album launch.

Their managers are yet to issue a statement about the cancellation.
