Mr. Bangura disclosed further that he came to personally know Emerson for the past couple of months but that he had been secretly admiring his work for years now, noting that in society and life you should have the ability to be know and stand for something on a consistent basis and when people call your name, it paints a picture so that they can know you are associated with the name.
Mr. Bangura described Emerson as a unique tower in the music industry in Sierra Leone not just as an entertainer but as someone who serves as a social engineer to change the mindset of people.
“I wish I could sing and write lyrics like he does; but he is in a class of his own in his ability to be a social engineer; his ability to put lyrics together and when you listen to those lyrics even the ones he wrote ten years ago still make sense,” Bangura said of Emerson.
Emerson according to Bangura is the founder and CEO of Sugar Entertainment which recorded his first album “U Go Cam” which was an instant hit in 2003 with King Fisher and the Bodyguard Studio. Following this, Mr. Bangura said Emerson has released four albums including Afro-pop music that sets him apart from the rest in the music industry.
Responding, Emerson Bockarie said it pleases him to be part of Africell and to serve as its ambassador, noting that Africell has always been at the center of his heart.
