Mavado pays homage to his mother in the new video “Mama.”
The JA Productions single was originally released earlier this year and features Mavado singing about his unconditional love for his mother and taking her out of the ghetto after becoming a successful recording artist. “Mama mi never ever ever ever left you out / Mi never left you in a the board house pon the Gully / Mi tek you out, you proud a you son / Seh mi proud a mi self, you teach me fi pray over mi self,” Mavado sings.
The video was shot in Africa while Mavado was on tour on the content. The cut features a few clips of the Gullyside singer performing in front of 50,000 people in Gambia. The cut also features some footage of the dancehall artist meeting and greeting some of his fans.
In May of this year, Mavado received approximately 10 acres of land in The Gambia as a gift from Global Properties. The land is located in Sanyang Village which is located on the west coast of the country. Mavado says he plans to build a hotel and a second home there.
