About Issa

I$$A is an American singer, songwriter and producer born in Senegal, West Africa. I$$A grew up in Dakar - the nation's capital which is also unique for being the westernmost point in all of Africa. His parents encouraged I$$A and his five brothers and sisters to excel in school, steering them into practical, high earning vocations like computer science and engineering. All of the kids followed the plan, except I$$A. I$$A loved the arts, loved music, which didn't exactly sit well with his parents since the only people who made a living singing in Senegal were beggars. But the vision I$$A had for himself was bigger than Dakar, bigger than Senegal, bigger even than West Africa. I$$A saw himself as a man of the world, making a living singing in such exotic locations as Europe and the United States. Since he was a little boy, his dream was to come to America to seek his fortune. "My music is a reflection of every musical style I was exposed to while growing up, which makes it very unique. In fact, I grew up speaking french, listening to american and European hip, R&B and other island styles of music. My vision is to become a musical bridge between continents as I recognize that the world is becoming smaller and connect more people like me who have been exposed to different cultures." I$$A is currently working on his album "Wake Up The Beast". His first single "All About You" is now available here: https://play.google.com/music/preview/Tpjdnvjm2d7rwn74hed5zddqi2y?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=buylink&u=0 https://itunes.apple.com/album/all-about-you-feat.-zito/id960388519?i=960388836&ign-mpt=uo=5 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SKMK43S Singer, Songwriter, Producer, born in Dakar, Senegal.
