American Comedian Michael Blankson Signs Ghanaian Rapper Gambo to His Record Label
Gambo has made history by becoming the first artiste to be recruited by Blackson Management owned by American comedian of Ghanaian and Liberian descent Michael Blackson.
During the recent edition of the award-winning podcast Drink Champs, Michael Blackson discussed the global Afrobeats explosion after which he introduced Bashir Annan, aka Gambo, as the man to take the world by storm.
He mentioned stars like Davido, Burna Boy, Kizz Daniel, and Wizkid in saying that Nigeria presently has the most prolific artistes on the continent.
“Nigeria is like the New York of music and Ghana is evolving into the Dubai of Africa. Afrobeat is taking over the world. In fact, I started my own management company called Michael Balckson Management. And I have one of my first Ghana artists,” Michael Blackson said as he introduced Gambo.
“Meet Ghana’s 🇬🇭 next star @gambo_ii he’s hardworking, God fearing and captures any and every audience attention with his stage presence,” Blackson captioned the video on Instagram.
The comedian was born to a Ghanaian father and a Ghanaian mother. Before moving to the United States in the middle of the 1980s, he spent his formative years moving between Monrovia and Ghana. He lost his father in 2008.
When Michael was 13 years old, he resided in Newark, New Jersey, and when he was 15 years old, he moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He started pursuing comedy after a Domino’s coworker recommended he start an open mic.
