Cameroonian footballers have apparently developed a thing for being on screen. After Samuel Eto’o‘s appearance in an  X -Maleya video ,it is now the turn of Jean Makoun. The midfielder features in Tity-P‘s video release “Jeunesse star”. Although the player doesn’t utter a note all through the song his presence will surely trigger some buzz for the song. Tity-P is supposed to be a hip-hop artist but in this song he rather explores coupé-décalé. This release is a prelude to his upcoming album entitled “Vise plus haut”. Even by Cameroonian standards,this is a bad attempt at coupé-décalé. See for yourselves.

Well our long time football player has a total goals of  24 in Cameroon, 107 matches and 26 goals in  Super League, 15 matches and 5 goals in the Nationals plus 70 matches and 29 goals in the CFA level.

Nexdim Entertainment as always brings you closer to everything, we met up with the above profiled and prolific footballer  Ojong Samuel during his Christmas vacations in Cameroon with the essence of getting more personal with our football born star.

Ride With Us!

Nexdim: Hello OJ  how you doing?

OJ: Am doing just fine, thanks

Nexdim: Tell us about your career as a football player.

OJ: Well talking about my career is a long story but I’d definitely need to start from somewhere. Ok back here in Cameroon I used to play with Cammark in Kumba, I later went to 1st division in Baffoussam under Fovu du Baham. After Fovu i switched to Tiko United and later moved to Kadji sport Academy, fortunately for me just after 10 months in Kadji I was selected to go for training session in Liverpool in England from where I was sent to the Spanish Real Madrid.

After my training sessions,I returned home and started my pursuit in France Rouen, moved to Switzerland where I played for 5years, again moved to FC Sion, then  Sport Reunir Delemont, then Neuchatel Xamax, then FC Thourn which was the last team I played for in Switzerland. From there I went to GFCO Ajaccio played for 2years, then  Eviom Thonon Gaillard, then Redstar FC, U.J Alfortville, J.A. Drancy and finally CMS Oissel where I currently play for  in France. You  see I told you its a very long story.

Nexdim: Quite long indeed, okay what are some of the difficulties you encounter as a football player?

OJ: Football naturally is a difficult game, imagine there are 30 players in grand total but only 11 are actually chosen to play in a match. Also the problem of age in the sense footballers have from the age of  19 to 34,  when you get to attain a certain age say from 30, you have to start thinking of retiring from the game. Then there are instances where you may face resentment from a coach, just naturally,the two of don’t just have a click, this makes the game to become difficult.

Nexdim: What can you say about Cameroonian football?

OJ: First of all I have noticed remarkably that football out of Cameroon is very different. From the time  I was still playing in Cameroon till now the country has registered so much progress, there are many clubs and  football schools now. But when it comes to professionalism since I have played in France for so many years Cameroon has too much to do in terms of  professional football.

Nexdim: What do you think can be done to improve Cameroon’s football?

OJ: I’d say those in charge should do all in their powers to ensure that all the equipments needed for playing a successful game are provided and when I talk about equipments I don’t just mean providing  jerseys and boots for the players, am talking about training equipments, it  will go a long way to encourage the players.

Nexdim: Any other thing you are involved in besides football?

OJ: Well, besides playing football, I coach the under 11. You see football has so much passion when you start it but at a certain stage, you begin to lose that passion and right now the passion I had back then is no longer there. But with time after my coaching sessions I strongly believe my passion a as coach will definitely come by.

Nexdim: Your role model?

OJ: Real Madrid’s Christiano Ronaldo, he has his own qualities as a hardworking player, though with his own faults too.

Nexdim: What do you like eating most?

OJ: My favorite is Rice, I can eat it like a whole year, (he laughs)

Nexdim: What are your hobbies?

OJ: My biggest hobby is watching a football match, oh gush ! I can’t afford to miss a tournament, then I like listening to music especially when am driving.

Nexdim: A word of advise to all those who have dreams of a pursuit in football.

OJ: Well I want to use this platform to encourage all the youths interested in football to work hard and keep on dreaming for as long as there is life, there is hope, so all they should do is keep on dreaming and not sleeping on their dreams but working towards them.

Nexdim: Wow ! thank you so much for granting such an audience to nexdimempire.com

OJ: You welcome Miss and thank you too.

According to media reports, former Canon and Sedan man Marcus Mokake is on his way to Qatar club Al-Kharaitayah. After his contract with French- side Sedan ended last June, the 30 year old has been clubless. Pending the routine medical check, everything seems set for the combative Cameroonian to fly to Qatar. If the deal sails through this could be a good opportunity for the player to relaunch his career and why not earn more call-ups to the national team. Go Marcus.

Individually they are just three fellows but when they come together musically  they become the musical sensation called X Maleya. Since they burst unto the scene, the guys have been marching from victory unto victories. The artistic clout they have gathered has seen them doing duets with heavyweights like Passi, Pit Baccardi and Patience Dabany. Their new situation thus begs the question: are they Cameroon’s supreme  boy-band? Yes,they are. Their recent album “Tous Ensemble”  only underscored their boy-band power. After their November -12 concert at the Yaounde Sports Complex, any doubts about them  deserving this accolade were dispelled. Their performances exuded unparalleled maturity and professionalism with beautifully-choreographed moves and swag. In the Cameroonian -music scene which has been accustomed to mixed groups of people prancing haphazardly on stage, they seem poised to win the title of  first Cameroonian boy-band. They have what it takes ;the moves ,the looks and the hits. Furthermore,their ever-growing  legion of female fans is an indicator of their boy-band potential and steady transformation into sex symbols. Their hit-making habit   has catapulted their fame beyond national frontiers and placed them in the country’s select club of crowd- pulling artists alongside greats like Petit -Pays. If all this isn’t  supreme boy-band stuff then I don’t know what it is. However,their next challenge will be to confirm and consolidate their new-found fame.

The rap movement in Cameroon is increasingly being infiltrated by ladies. One of those who has been  making heads turn and ears listen is fiery- cameroonian rapper 20cent born Eteme Francoise. One thing the rapper has often been quick to highlight is that her artistic name 20cent is no reference to U.S  rap mogul 5o cent. It is rather an innovative spelling of the name “Vincent” which she choose since she never really loved her christian name Francoise. Encouraged by her elder sister Sleks, the artist indulged her love for music by rapping and exploring  other rythmns. She signed with the Big Boss Entertainment label and has headlined for various artists like Ariq Akam apart from performing during hip- hop shows like Mboa hip- hop Festival. After all these years horning her skills, the rapper has finally released her highly-anticipated single Egotribe”. This is a prelude to her first album L’Enfant prodige. If this is any hint of the forthcoming album,then fans and critics alike are in for a treat. After having animated the music scene with her unusual name and electrifying performances,the rapper has finally made her musically statement with this release which is a good reflection of the lady and rapper 2o cent is. Enjoy

As the January 31st dateline approaches , Cameroonian players are amongst those making  news. While Yaya Banana has completed his move to  French club Sochaux , goalkeeper Idriss Carlos is rumoured to be a Malaga target although his current club Espanyol Barcelone is said to be reluctant to  let him go. Another Cameroonian Brice Owona   who plays for Swiss side F.C St. Gall is said to be in talks with his club for a mutual end to his contract. The former Cotonsport man was embroiled in a rape scandal that landed him in jail for over a week. On the side lines of these potential moves, Vincent Bikana who plays for Neuchatel Xamax is at the centre of a fake-age scandal. The player is accused of having changed his age. The player has consistently refuted these cliams as baseless. Who said the road to football stardom was easy?
