The management of Isa and Hassan Bangura, stage name DoubleBangz of the ‘Ah Say’fame say the duo would be releasing their CHAMPION album pretty soon.
However, there have been controversies as to whether the duo rappers are brothers.
According to their management team the name was created after the two guys met and performed at an event; Isa and Hassan found out they both carried the surname ‘Bangura’ so they decided to abbreviate the ‘Bangura’ to Bangz and the two Bangura’s became DoubleBangz.
DoubleBangz then started working and released their first song ‘Shake’, then ‘No Lazy’ which saw them accepted within their local community and home Country Sierra Leone. In 2012 they released ‘Borcor’ and this song and video captured a lot of attention within the UK Afro beats scene and other nations.
They were nominated in the 2016 Kora Awards for best group in Africa with the track ‘Circulate’ featuring Awilo Longomba a Congolese musician who was a drummer in Viva la Musica, Stukas, Nouvelle Generation and Loketo.
In 1995 Awilo finally quit drumming for singing and released his first album Moto Pambahas. Circulate created so much buzz around the World, with many shows in Canada, London and Sierra Leone.
The audio for this track was an instant hit and the ‘Ah say’ boys did not disappoint with the fresh cut video directed by Na Salone Tv.
Double Bangz are both Graduates; one is a financial broker and the other a graphic designer.
Their Champion Album is all set to hit the market with 10 solid tracks produced by soundboy Richie, Engineered by Buzzing & Eaaron Quacoe
