Popcaan performed in front of a sold-out crowd at Bakau Independence Stadium in Banju on Saturday, with his most "Unruly fans" in full attendance. This was his first time performing in Gambia.
The St. Thomas native was greeted as a hero upon his arrival at Banjul International Airport on Friday and then during a motorcade before the concert.
He performed hit song after hit song for more than an hour to an overly enthusiastic crowd who paid 1,000 Gambian Dalasis (about $19 US).
Popcaan expressed his gratitude for the turnout via social media. He captioned an Instagram post showing a drone shot of the filled stadium. “Thank you again to the smiling coast of Africa and @AbsoluiteEGm! We made history in The Gambia last night!”
He also shard a number of exciting and unforgettable experiences in The Gambia, including playing with monkeys and shopping at a craft fair.
