It’s been a long way coming for Shitta .T. Deen, Sierra Leonean Rapper and Movie Actor popularly known as Cool J or otherwise Salone Cool J. Riding off the success of his 2013 hit single, Holiday Buffer featuring Kao Denero, Cool J has consistently delivered an addictive and feel good music that always make a good replay on playlists and burst speakers at home and abroad.

Although, Cool J was born in Freetown, he moved to settle in the United States during Sierra Leone’s civil war. Like everyone else who experienced the war, Cool J had a difficult upbringing, however he did not allow this experience to kill his musical aspirations. He has since developed to an act with an attractive fan base while rapping and doing movies simultaneously.

In 2021, Cool J has been at the forefront of organizing online rap contests for upcoming Artistes and has also been seen in light of charity works for the less privileged. His most revered song “Prove Them Wrong’” featuring Innocent was born out of his struggles for personal development and also a means to silence his critics in the entertainment industry.

Cool J is undoubtedly operating at the top of his game having been nominated six times in the 2021 National Entertainment Award (NEA). He is also billed for an International performance in Gambia National stadium where he is expected to thrill the audience alongside Tanzanian Superstar, Diamond Platinumz.

Certainly, It is not bad to say Cool J has had a fantastic year and a deserving #18 spot in the Sierraloaded 20 Hottest Artistes in Sierra Leone 2021.
