Austin Mang Gadong (Born July 6th, 1984) better known by his stage name A.M.G, is a Nigerian singer, film producer, Banker, Politician and an ambassador of the Global foundation for peace with the United nations. Born in Jos and lived most of his upcoming life in Warri and Asaba Delta state. He studied theatre arts at the prestigious university of Jos and served in Delta state where he started a career in banking, while delving into other activities of his original calling as a dramatist and a singer. In 2006 A.M.G was invited to feature in a film (90 degrees) where he exhibited his artistic prowess and talent, he got much more offers to feature in other films  after the first  premiere in France but had to turn down the offer to pursue a corporate career so as to master how the corporate world operates.
Still on the quest for his calling in music , A.M.G  is bringing back the memories of all those born from the late 70’s to the early 90’s in Jos metropolis to a popular song by an unknown being that made children in almost all the schools on the plateau to go “Gaga” during the period under review.
The Sho-Kajah Crooner has coined out the song with a lot of messages to parents and guardians who may wish their children and Lads  to read and study what they (parents) want, to the detriment of the child which may lead to failure at the end and cause depression to set in for such a promising youth. Not only did he try to pass a message of hope to the youth in our present generation, A.M.G went further to invite one of Berom’s finest Rappers on the Plateau, Jobb Manja to share his experience of how he rose into fame within the locality and is presently going international with the hard work of the Rap culture intertwined with his  local dialect (Berom). Jobb Manja shared his experience of how no one wanted to support his music career (which was perceived by most parents as a wayward career-path to follow) and how he had to steal some money to go to the studio for his first ever studio session, of course the “Preacher’s Son” never disappointed by giving his best to the aggrandizement of his contemporaries.
Not only Jobb Manja had these Bumpy rides of challenges in trying to make a head way in music. Bezalel (one time) , a refined gold of the music industry on the plateau has had his fair share of the tongue lash in trying to pursue a career in music generally, Bezalel has had the philosophy of making music not for the money but for one reason; putting smiles on people’s faces when they are tuned to the radio to listen to his music. The mentality of a lot of individuals on the older side gives the impression that most Male rappers rap for their female counterparts in order to get sexually active with them. The “Retarded youth” advocate vehemently begs to differ from such and has urged everyone to see rap as a weapon to be used as a tool for the enhancement of our present-day generation Youth.
Sho-Kajah is released to the Glory of God today 27th November 2019 and also dedicated to A.M.G’s Lovely Wife Olamire Emmanuella Mang on her birthday with love from A.M.G.
