DARK ANGEL comes from the name MOWTY
MAHLYKA which was given to the artist during and
after his performance in Gambia. In Wolof language
it’s a translation for Dark Angel. He adopted this title
with humility and embraced it spiritually!
He started off performing with sound systems at local
dances around West London and built his name up on
the underground scene. He was part of a group called
„Nuh Fear Dem” when the group was selected to
compose a song for a campaign called „Not Another
Drop”. The song has received heavy radio rotation
throughout different boroughs in London.
He then departed from this group to pursue a solo
career and decided to revamp his whole image and
Then released a single in 2007 titled „My Time” which
gave him the platform to connect with local djs to get
his songs on airplay.
He decided to set up and registered his recording label
called Spectacular Recordings.
