  • I am proud of Africell and for having faith in Black Leo and Sierra Leonean hip hop. I like Kao Denero’s music although i think he is pretty cocky and full of himself.lol. I love Supa Laj and RJ as well. They are really representing our culture. Supa Laj is very good in English too. I believe that with his english mixed with Krio style he can make it worldwide. Keep it up guys!
