Celebrated across the African continent as Liberia’s music pride and the first Liberian Artiste to receive a nomination in the Listener’s Choice category at the 2016 MTV Africa Music Awards, Deng, whose real name is Daniel George [have] released a continental hit song ‘Janjay’ featuring Africa’s rap god Sarkodie on 9th June, 2017.
The hit song was Produced by one of Liberia best music producers Stone Luckshine and Possigee from Ghana. ‘JanJay’ is a Liberian hiplife which talks about a girl’s dream. According to those who had the rare privilege of listening to ‘Janjay’ before its release, praised the collaboration from Deng and Sarkodie. Honestly speaking, Deng makes me feel proud of being a Liberian.
We all know how the entertainment industry looks right now, we practically don’t have the structures that Africa music giants, Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana etc has, we even barely have the infrastructure, but Deng is not using that as an excuse, he is rubbing shoulders with big names, and getting international recognition from the likes of MTV Awards, Nigerian Entertainment Award, and doing standard videos, receiving international interviews and press, lodging in world class hotels and living the life a top class celebrity. Few months ago, we couldn’t stop talking about how he shined with the Nigerian musician, Kcee the Limpopo crooner on “Make dem talk” a song they both jumped on, and also shot a great video for. Deng is proving to us lately, that there’s nothing stopping him from being a big star on the continent.
One thing am very sure about is that “JanJay” is going to be a multiple award winning song. Deng keeps waving the flag. source/www.plusliberia.com
