Ebrima Touray

Ebrima Touray was born in the early 1970s in Gambia. He is one of twenty children and as the eldest male, he remains head of his family from a distance. He grew up in a rural environment and then after high school his desire to travel became a reality going first to Belgium, England and Czech Republic (where he had to learn Czech). This was followed by a brief stint in the Republic of Ireland before settling in Hull in 2000. Ebrima recalls meeting his wife in LA’s Nightclub, settling and having a family of four boys born and brought up in the city.
