Sekouba Diakite originates from Odienne (the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire). Like his elder brother, Isaac Ismael Sekouba also sings in Malinke, Bambara, Dioula English, and French. Sekouba comes from the neighborhood of Treichville in Abidjan, (known as 'Treichtown' to reggae fans). In 1986, Sékouba moved to The Gambia, where he lived until 1993 when he moved back to Abidjan (Cote d'Ivoire).

After being enriched into the roots of the Bolomba style in The Gambia, the young Sekouba came alive with the West African sounds of the Mandinka. Sekouba's desire to sing came naturally but it was never a reality without the musical influence of his brother, Ismael Isaac. Sekouba's other musical influences include, Lucky Dube, Alpha Blondy, and Bob Marley.

In 1999 he made his debut as an artist, tenaciously composing lyrics as a self-taught author, composer, and performer. His music reflects an eclectic mix of West African melodies, fused with traditional Reggae rhythms. His debut album "I Love My People" featuring the title track "I'm So Glad," was selfproduced in New York and arranged by Oscar Ankou. His sophomore album "Sejou" is scheduled for release in June 2010 and features outstanding tracks like; "No Doubt," mixing the styling of soulful Caribbean beats and a cool reggae vibe. "No Doubt" manages to deliver meaningful lyrics in a light-hearted way, echoing the sounds of Bob Marley. If you want to reminisce about first love, this song is for you. "Mandela," a tribute to the great freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela, with up-tempo exotic beats and rhythms. "Mandela" showcases Sekouba's rare powerful sound. And "Sejou," the funky Reggae tune showcasing Sekouba's African roots.

Sekouba currently resides in New York City, where he often performs at local festivals and clubs. His determination, courage and perseverance are praiseworthy but his music sets him apart. Sekouba music has its own distinctive style and sound, seamlessly blending, Reggae rhythms with African beats and melodies.
