The political class salutes the memory of Thione Seck. All have unanimously saluted a man of exceptional dimension.
Abdoulaye Diouf Sarr
A singer and lyricist of an exceptional dimension, an artistic and cultural heritage of our country who has marked Senegalese music. An artist of your dimension never dies; your works and your legacy will survive you. Eternal rest and saddened condolences to Senegal.
Cheikh Bamba Dièye
Senegal has just lost a cultural monument in the person of Thione Ballago Seck. To his family, friends and the Senegalese people I offer my sincere condolences and pray for the repose of his soul. I hope that he will have a tribute to his dimension.
Thierno Alassane Sall
With Thione, one of the last repositories of traditional Senegalese music has passed away. Our last roots are dying without any regrowth. Hence the immensity of the loss and of our pain. He sang so much of his mother, and I with him, of mine. In the name of the Republic of Values, and on my own behalf, I offer my condolences to his family, his loved ones, the entire Senegalese nation and the entire world.
