The President of Sierra Leone, Dr. Julius Maada Bio has appointed Amara Dennis Turay Jalloh aka Kao Denero as the new Special Envoy for Entertainment and Investment. His new appointment will require him to promote Sierra Leone’s business, products, and entertainment interests. He will also be responsible for identifying entertainment and investment opportunities.

Other duties will be presented to him by the President in due time. Few minutes after the release of his appointment, Kao reacts on social media with the following word. “More grease to the elbow. Mr. Entertainment Ambassador. I always knew rapping was not the be it all for me. Say hi to the new diplomat,” said Kao. He further thanked the president for believing in him and he looks forward to rejuvenating the entertainment industry. Kao Denero is the CEO of Black Leo Entertainment and one of the oldest rappers in Sierra Leone.

 

 

The young Dian delivers another bewitching single, “Bailerina,” assuming more and more of her soul side.

Dian is only twenty years old. She lives between Paris and Dakar. Her mother was a backing singer for the Cameroonian singer and saxophonist Manu Dibango, and also for the Ivorian reggae artist Alpha Blondy. As for her father, he was a percussionist with the Mexican singer and guitarist Carlos Santana. Raised and nourished by music from a young age, Dian ended up singing “Good Girl Gone Bad” in 2020 alongside Crystal Murray, the founder of the Spin Desire label. Following this electro-tinged track, Dian launched her first single “Insanity” back in December, reminding us of the golden age of hip hop. Having been heavily engaged in the fight against stereotypes, this transgender artist has a defined purpose for her energy and is happy to move between musical styles to deliver her message. She is hypnotic on her single “Bailerina”, a soulful tribute to a lost friend. Her minimalist music video allows us to admire Dian’s raw beauty and sensuality in all its wonderful simplicity.

Listen to “Bailerina” in our Songs of the Week playlist on Spotify and Deezer.
