Man On A Mission: Liberian Artist F Dot A Dot

                                                                                  
 
"By the end of 2015, I can guarantee, there won’t be a question about my nomination." F Dot A Dot
 

During a phone interview, F Dot A Dot expressed his desire to build the musical gap between the old and new Liberian artists around the world, which is something you don't hear too often from the young generation.  At the beginning of January 2015, F Dot A Dot dropped a rich cultural video to the song "Jebbeh." According to the S.I.C singer(Sing in Colloque), " By the end of this year, I can guarantee, there won’t be a question about my nomination.  My upcoming album is going to take people back, way back.  I can’t say what it is, but we have been working with a lot of older musicians. The next single is going to speak for itself, it’s about bringing people together, at the same time we are going to get that realness. We are bringing back the old Liberian rhythm, a lot of Sasa, palm wine music, traditional drums."



         Music is nothing new to Star, he has been singing in church choir since he was just a boy. "Started recording in 2003 but I’ve always been doing music from church and high school.  Since I was a kid, I always wanted to be on stage.  I recorded my first Album "Let’s Make History" when I was in Atlanta and since then, I've never stopped recording. Right now, I'm working on my fifth Album. This album is a master piece.  We are putting in a lot of hard work and collaborating with Liberia's musical legends like Zack and Gebeh, etc.  I don't want to let the cat out of the bag, that was just the tail of the cat, I want to save the surprise for later." 

                                                                                    
                                                             

With a burning desire to serve his people through music, F A talks about how he feels not being nominated for the Liberian Entertainment Awards, “Being able to write good music, sing and make videos that the people love is an reward within itself.  All those who are nominated work hard, therefore, I'm not disappointed.  All I want to do is focus on giving the people more of me this year, I will be dropping more videos this year and an untouchable album. 2015 is my year, new epic, a lot more collaboration, not just with older artists but across the boarders as well.  I'm doing collaboration with some Ghanaian and Nigerian artists too. I look forward to working with younger artists like Jon Bricks, Quincy B and Pitty D'Best in the future.  I'm just grateful for the love and the support from the fans, I’m not going to let my fans down, I will take Liberia to the top. I love my fans, fans make it happen for me, it’s all about them.  When they are happy, I'm rewarded. Thanks to my management team, Bluelinks Record label, for all the opportunity they are providing for me to do what I love to do."

The rumor is true.  Speaking with Liberian musician Stunna management this morning, it has being confirmed that Stunna and his team are negotiating with Universal Music to take on the artist.  His team did not confirmed the exact amount, because negotiation is still in process, but it has been said that $1million was the first offer.  The global company's main rival is Temple Music, home to Nigeria's Iyana, who has worked with the Liberian artist in the past.
