Alhaji Kinteh was born and raised in Leyton, East London, the second of six children. His formative education was an eclectic mix of West African culture, Islamic traditions and British values. He has travelled and worked on three continents over the last three decades. He is vastly experienced in business working within the music industry, import and export trading and commercial enterprise. He has multiple charities in the Gambia, growing produce at farms to help subsidize food costs for local people and sponsoring orphans to ensure that they receive a full education. While he is in London, he works with youths who experience difficulties in their formative years and offers counselling and mentorship. He draws from his own personal experience growing up in what sometimes can be a desolate city for some. He is also a qualified practitioner of alternative therapy, specializing in wet cupping and herbalism.
