Sony Music Sweden MADI BANJA

A raw, honest and contemporary take on Madi Banja’s long and rough journey from Banjul, Gambia to receiving platinum status for his heartfelt and direct storytelling.

ABOUT

The story of the Madi is one taken straight from a scriptwriter.

Starting his footsteps in Gambia, ending up in trouble in Hollywood to finding himself in Switzerland and finally ending up in a Stockholm suburb where becoming soccer-buddies with the prime of Swedish contemporary hiphop.

Inspired by his story, the visual direction is largely dark and contrast rich. But with the dark background, it also blooms into the floral direction seen in some material. Work features handwritten details taken from Madi’s personal sketches.
