ENC, one of the Gambia’s finest dancehall artiste has frown at government decision for not allowing clubs and concert halls to operate during easing the lock down of covid-19 pandemic.
Gambia government has easing the lock down by opening the markets and worship places were allowed to resume last week as normalcy returns in bits before President Barrow extended the state of public emergency to 21 more days last week, which many argued that it is unconditional.
ENC, also a club deejay has strongly urged the government to open night clubs be reopened after the recent easing of lock down over the coronavirus.
He believed that that sector too needs to be allowed to operate as many are depending on it for their daily bread.
“If we can go to overcrowded places like markets, local ceremonies, now mosques and churches…what sense does it make if clubs are still on lock? Open our damn clubs and concert halls we matter too and best believe we are essential! Stop sleeping on us,” he said.
However many African countries have given a relief package to their arts and culture sector during the global pandemic, but Gambia arts and culture remains broken during the difficult times with no signs of recovering from the economic losses.
