Joseph Gerald Adolphous Cole known as Daddy Saj of the Corruption E Do So fame has announced that he is back with a different name and a different style to the music industry.
Daddy Saj had since migrated to the United States of America where he studied nursing and now working as a medical practitioner. His recent visit to Sierra Leone was primarily to honour their late mother with a befitting burial.
Killing two birds with one stone, Daddy Saj’s visit also saw him announcing that he was back to the music industry with a difference, not the critic of 2000s but a gospel-like type of lyrical messenger of peace. Also, his visit saw him giving back to society by way of donating to the vulnerable.
On the 28th of August 2020 at a ceremony held at the Kroo Bay community, Daddy Saj donated assorted School materials to over 100 school going kids. He did that through the Daddy Saj Foundation, named after him.
In a statement at the ceremony at the Kroo Bay Community, he said he was doing that as a way of paying back to Sierra Leoneans because for making him what he is today. “I am aware that people were using their hard-earned resources to buy my albums and attend my shows, so it’s time to show appreciation and gratitude.” He said his philanthropic work started way back in 2003 and it was not just stopping. “I will continue to do this in other less privileged communities,” he said.
Daddy Saj was introduced into the music world by the legendary Jimmy Bangura (Jimmy B) by signing the youngster to the Paradise Record Label and he released his first single in the Label’s compilation titled ‘A Bo’. His debut, ‘Corruption E Do So’ made a hit, and placed him atop in social commentary and in Sierra Leone’s music industry.
The track criticises political, social, and financial corruption by then and it was widely played right across Africa. Daddy Saj went on to release two other albums-DEMSAY DEMSAY and FAYA 4 FAYA before moving to America to engage in another pursuit.
In interviews he granted to TV and radio stations, he said he is coming back into the industry was a different style, singing social type of gospel songs. “It’s not the usual gospel songs that talk about Jesus but songs that we talk about things that Sierra Leonean should or should not do. I am not here to criticise anybody but preach peace and sing stuff that will change Sierra Leone for the better.”
He says his songs will not be criticising anybody but will be preaching to do the right thing so that life can be better for us all. He will be returning to America to continue his job as a nurse and at the same time producing music.
