Fodé then meets producer Ibrahima Sylla who produces Ismaël Lo and Baaba Maal at the time, and together they release Yirikiki, Fodé’s first Mandingo Afro Zouk (expression he claims to be his own) hit that automatically grants him success throughout the continent and gets him an award from radio Africa #1 in Gabon in 1999.
After such success in Africa, Fode now wants to conquer Europe and share his conception of music with the world – a dancing beat but words to think about. This is how he releases the album Libération in July 2010 gathering the songs from Yanfanté, released back home a year earlier, with 4 exclusive tracks – Söry, Katoucha (a tribute to Katoucha Niane, the model who disappeared tragically), Chaptalat and finally Libération. On a hot beat he exposes the politics abandoning his country, Guinea, one of the poorest and most corrupted of Africa whereas it possesses incredible resources like iron, bauxite… and water, the future’s black gold. With Libération, Fodé Baro wants to prove we can dance and speak about serious issues at the same time. He deserves the nicknames his fans (and detractors) gave him – “Fodé the Agitator”.
