Steveslil has the killer instinct to enter into the hall of fame of reputable urban music acts in Africa. His musical prowess and versatility to effortless switch from one genre to another is breathtaking . After releasing a phenomenal single “Ebangha” , the Cameroonian sultry R&B/Afro-pop songster has gamely resurfaced with a life-enhancing love and marriage story incorporated in a soul-searching song titled “Diana” . He describes “Diana” as a musical marriage between post- independence highlife music and contemporary Afro-pop harmony.In essence, “Diana” embodies the traditional harmonic rhythm which could be dubbed “Palm wine music” , married with western instruments. “Diana” incarnates the folkloric tone popularly chanted during the post-independence era. The song is an expression of love and appreciation to God (Eta Mandem , thank you …) for giving a beautiful wife who deserves all the sacrifices a man can make give , just to make her happy; “na with you I go fly , America, Europe, Africa , to Asia coz you be my baby” . Steveslil’s vocal timbre and delivery perfectly gives the groove the song deserves. The song aws produced by Emil Ngumbah .

Prolific singer/songwriter/producer Frank Kesi aka Mr. Pleasure just released a 6-track-deep first E.P entitled “Mr. Pleasure”. The auto-produced EP is a mix of African, Caribbean and American music, a true delight for those who enjoy the refreshing feel of afro-centricity in today’s music. As a new talent in the music scene, Frank Kesi has already rubbed elbows with big stars, including Togolese pop duo Toofan and U.S. RnB songstress Chrisette Michelle. In time for the release of his E.P., Frank Kesi was the only International Artist chosen by the U.S. Top Radio station WKYS to perform at the 2014 edition of the International Festival, which was headlined by Ludacris and Estelle.
The EP “Mr. Pleasure” opens with the title track, which is a blend of reggae and R&B. On the third track “Take Your Heart Go”, Kesi gives a shoutout to Bamenda, the artist’s alleged hometown, as he raps “If you look through me you go see Bamenda.”

Stanley Enow keeps maintaining his poise in the urban music scene. He just unveiled the snippet of his new song ‘Njama njama cow” . The song is fuelled with a Southside beat pattern and blazes with solid lyrics.
Gifted vocalist and songwriterRiki Maria was phenomenal when she dropped the cover of Stanley Enow’s hit single “Hein Pere’. The Yaounde-based up and coming songstress has released a sizzling tune titled ‘Carry Go’ produced by Bluejay Kings. Enjoy the song and share as much as you can.
A rebranded Denzyl with a new pseudonym Ambe has finally dropped a new terrific single titled “Rendez Vous” produced by Phillbeat . He describes the song as a fusion of Afropop and Benskin. The song is totally breathtaking . The artist has dropped his former name to adopt his real name Ambe. But lets delve to this :
The world has known him for over a decade as Denzyl, the magic voice behind promising singles like “You stole my love way” , “Leavam so” “Monica”. Worthnoting, depending on where you’re at in your career, changing your artist/band name can either be as easy as renaming a few social profiles or as difficult as destroying every trace of your previous incarnation and humbly starting from scratch.I checked out and discovered no other band or musician is using the name DENZYL , plus the name is googleable and catchy or maybe the name DENZYL no longer reflects the new genre of music he has dived into. So many questions keep illuminating. However, it would have been proper for the artist to communicate to his fans the reasons why he changed his name and take any criticism. No “esonghori ” tho. I go find Denzyl askam on NexDim Empire.
