The launching was held at the Ebunjan Theatre in Kanifing.

The event was organised by the International Association of African Authors and Scholars (IAAAS).

Yankuba Darboe, the Commission General of Gambia Revenue Authority urged young Gambians to develop the culture of reading and writing. 

 Ousman M. Touray, Pan-Africanist said that African’s need to take control of their narratives by engaging in reading and writing.

 He urged his fellow youths to develop the habit of reading and writing, as a soul search to find solutions to African problems.

The prolific Gambian historian added: 

“The book has added strong voice to Gambian Literature”.
