The daughter of The Gambia’s music legend Demba Conta tops the music chart in Sweden, selling over 80 million records Life Lush that she wrote for the swedish singer Zara Larsson. Like her father, Iman Conta hits the music scene with ‘Sugar Deluxe’ by storm. She has exhibited the talents of Demba Conta in the mid-80s, an unlettered man who left his home land in search of better life abroad only to return home a music maestro. Demba’s album, the United States of Africa, is still relevant.
The gifted Swedish-Gambian born singer has proven her music prowess with a song Lush Life she has composed for a famous Swedish pop singer Zara Larsson. The song becomes a sensation spreading like wildfire in Europe. But Iman does not want to bag all the credit, for she acknowledges the pivotal role her Gambian father and Swedish mother play in nurturing her music talent.
Demba, who is anxious to pass the music baton to his children, feels proud of Iman’s extraordinary success. His eldest son, Eddie is also another kid in the block. Demba wants music legacy to be part of his progenies.
Iman Conta’s success in selling such a high volume of records in a short space of time in Sweden is unprecedented. The pop singer, Zara Larsson herself was blown away by Iman’s sudden rise to fame with a song she has composed for her.
Demba Conta, his daughter Iman and son Eddie all have musical successes. The call is rising for the trio to do a combination promoting the rich family heritage of singer-song writing.
Iman has recently toured Europe to promote her single. She will be the next guest of Mohammed Lamin Sillah, the anchor of The Talking Point on Kairo Radio.
