Wally B. Seck, Senegalese superstar with more than 5M subscribers, has established himself as one of his homeland's major artists over the years; alongside the likes of Youssou NDour. He now presents "I Wanna Be Free", a powerful, unifying album that will undoubtedly become a landmark of international pop music. He's the enfant terrible of contemporary Senegalese music. Wally B. Seck has nearly 400 million views on his Youtube channel, 5 million subscribers on his various social networks, and is making a name for himself as a favorite in the hearts of the Senegalese people.

The son of Senegalese singer Thione Ballago Seck, the young artist is appealing not only to his father's fans, but to the new generation, who knew little of the patriarch. Born on April 27, 1985 in Dakar, Senegal, Wally initially envisaged a career in soccer in France, London and Italy. Although this career never really took off, Wally started out in music with the Raam Daan group in Senegal. After that, everything went very fast for the young man trained by his father, who is also his mentor. He's not afraid of anything and never stops provoking. For Fatim O', a culture journalist with Groupe Futur Médias, Wally Ballago Seck is the "Justin Bieber of Senegal".

He owes his success to his notoriety and showman status, in the image of the American stars with whom he constantly identifies. In February 2011, Wally was one of 5 artists nominated for the Sunu Music Awards, alongside Viviane N'Dour and Didier Awadi. On September 4, 2012, Wally released his second album entitled Louné (Tout). A confirmation album featuring 8 tracks, this enabled him to reach out to new audiences. In the record, he generally tackles themes of love and promotes Senegalese griots, a caste from which he himself hails. Since then, Wally B. Seck has established himself as one of his country's leading artists, alongside the likes of Youssou NDour, and is aiming for international success with his forthcoming album "I Wanna Be Free", due for release in 2023.
