Gambians at home and in the diapora woke up this morning to devastating news of the sudden demise of two great icons; Musa Afia Ngum a music veteran and Baboucarr Saho a sports star. Mr. Musa Afia Ngum was in Senegal prior to his sudden passing away and is said to have featured in the SenegaleseTV channel (tfm) and even performed on stage alongside his son Ismaila Ngum in Dakar yesterday night. It stands out that the veteran musician’s interview on tfm and live performance in Dakar was in fact a farewell to the Senegambian people and the world at large of his sudden travel to eternal life the following morning.
The late Baboucarr Saho aka Goalkeeper Saho is one of Gambia’s finest footballers. He is said to have played for Chossan FC , Kwame FC , Serekunda East , Gambia Eleven and The Scorpions. Saho was a versatile, great goalkeeper , a determined competitor and above all had a big heart. He succumbed to a long illness this morning.
Ever since news broke out on the demise of these two great icons social media continue to be flooded with messages of condolence and tribute for the duo departed souls. We pray that the Almighty God shower mercy on their gentle souls and grant them everlasting bliss in the eternal life. Rest in Peace Musa Afia Ngum and Goalkeeper Saho!
