Gayle's Musical Odyssey: From Cricket to Dancehall

In November 2020, the Jamaican sports icon ventured into the music industry with the release of his dancehall music video "We Come Out To Party". Prior to that, he had already showcased glimpses of his partying lifestyle in an earlier video.

Continuing his musical journey, Gayle collaborated with Indian rapper Emiway Bantai, and together they unveiled the music video "Jamaica to India" in April 2021. Keeping the momentum alive, Gayle excitedly announced the upcoming release of his song "Punjabi Daddy" in September 2021, revealing his intention to don a Sikh turban for the occasion.

Talking about this latest track, Gayle said, as reported by Outlook, "My stint with India and IPL has always been memorable and (my) natural love for music and singing is complete with 'OH FATIMA'. Great song, great locations, brilliant partnership and a super collaboration with Arko and the team will be a treat for people globally."
