D’ Whales is described by other artists as a Real Show Man! He was born and raised in Benin city in Nigeria, but is since august 15th 1999
based in Linköping, Sweden. He lived in Nigeria all his life until June
1996 when he relocated to Gambia. D’ Whales is still remembered in
Gambia for his originality and improvisations.
He actually introduced live Reggae/Ragga in the tourist industry where
most bands only played cover songs to entertain the tourist from
Europe. At first, the hotels didn’t like the idea but got amused by the
turnovers and increasing numbers in every aspect. He played from hotel
to hotel and met people from every path of the world, mostly Europeans,
and many of them became fans.
