The father of versatile Ghanaian rapper, Gambo, has passed away.

Mr Bashir Annan passed away on November 26, 2021. He was born on November 11, 1948.

He has since been buried in Kasoa, in the Central Region, in accordance with Islamic burial rites.

Gambo revealed that he only got the news of his father's death after his engagement with the media at the A&C Mall on Friday, November 26, 2021, where he announced the release of his new banger titled: 'Boys Aye Wild.'

He wrote: "Got the news after my #BoysAyeWild press release that my DAD had passed away. The past few days haven't been easy as you all know I lost my granddad too last week."

About Gambo's new song

The song talks about boys taking care of their girls’ financial needs because if they do not honour that obligation, another man with the right attitude towards catering to a partner will snatch their women just like how the hawk attacks its prey.

According to Gambo, men need to hustle harder if their current financial situation is not conducive for them to be in a relationship.

Gambo, who believes in scaling one’s hustle, urged others to invest wisely when they come into money.

The 26-year-old rapper can boast of owning a slew of tech stores spread across the major malls in the country and also dabbles in real estate.

When asked by www.africanentertainment.com at a recent presser for the video release of ‘Boys Ay3 Wild’ which is being premiered on YouTube, how he has been received by the godfathers of the music industry, Gambo stated that the response has been warm especially that of the Shatta Movement boss, Shatta Wale.

He said being the outspoken person that he is was the reason the king of the dancehall supports him and urges him to keep pushing and not hold back because of naysayers.

Also on the case of bloggers and how they make and unmake stars, Gambo replied that there was nothing like bad press.

He went on to say that if you get the opportunity to be criticized, one must always take it with a pinch of salt and make the necessary adjustments where need be.
