Irish Singer Barack O'Bama from London-Derry has found his fame in America rising due to the fact that he nearly shares his name with an important runner in the race for the White House.
O'Bama, famed for his hits 'Guiness and Girls' 'One More Pogues Song' and 'My Granddaddy's old Washboard' said: 'I am writing high in the Country and Western Charts in America, and my tour sold out in three different places. Apparently, a lot of my CD's have been returned, and People have got angry at my gigs. I gather that they wanted cheery political speeches rather than Country and Western songs drenched in Pedal Steel Guitar and weeping fiddle, but at least the people came to the gigs'
It is a long way for O'Bama who has spent time supporting Ronan Keatingon tour, as well as being a body guard for Chris De Burgh, but he remains philosophical about his journey to the top: 'All those other gigs I did were worth it if they bought me to where I am now. I only have God, my parents, and a certain man who shares my name for the position I am in now. Do you know who this Barack Obama chap is? I hear he is something big in American politics'.
