With well over 4,000 inmates, salt as he is now called thrilled members of the prison to a long lasting performances that will linger in their hearts.
On why he launched his album in the prison, Lamboginny disclosed exclusively to Dailytimes that alot of people do not that he once worked as an officer in the prison and as such he could connect to their pain and trials.
With this landmark achievement, Lamboginny is however calling on the government to look into prison deconjestion and also urged our judiciary to step up in the way they handle cases related to prisoners.
“For me, I don’t see the inmates as prisoners rather I see them as being in the awaiting room and one day, they will be free to unite with their respective families.”
He however advised the inmates that no hope is lost as the prison is not their last busstop.
