Douala – based rapper Kastra has released a brand new video. It is titled ” cote dans les halls” and is off his mixtape ” Ils savaient que j'arrive”. The video was directed by February 16. It can be considered a visual treat although we have seen better. This video nevertheless shows  a certain consistency in the quality of recent videos from Cameroonian hip – hop artists. It also confirms the n

ew place quality occupies in the conceptualisation and marketing of Cameroonian hip-hop. If only more mainstream artists could follow suit. Enjoy the video right here.

It would seem that the rumours were true after all: ace musician and social critic Lapiro de Mbanga has fled the country. For a while now speculation was rife that the artist and his family had fled the country, to take up residence in the U.S.A. Despite the consistency of these speculations, it was difficult to verify their credibility. However a September 5 facebook post from General Valsero, with whom he collaborated on the highly – controversial track “démissionerhow to get a divorceg>” upon release, seems to confirm theses reports. In his words, General Valsero says “… l'artiste lapiro de mbanga est en ce moment en cavale avec toute sa famille il croule sous les menaces téléphonique et les intimidations….” (translation – … the artist Lapiro de Mbanga is presently on the run with his entire family he  has been incessantly threatened over the phone and intimidated..). Other sources have reported that the artist has been granted asylum in the U.S. A book detailing his trial and the reasons for his exile is said to be due for release soon. Even after serving a suspiciously – unfair jail term,  “Ndingaman” seems set for a new episode in his recently – roller coaster life. Whatever the case, it evident that his exile is a major loss for the Cameroonian music scene.

Fans will soon get their usual fix of Valsero's activist rap. The rapper's new album is set for official release on September 30, 2012. This info was recently made known by the artist via facebook. His new musical offering is titled “L'appel du peupleng>” and will be officially launched during the Sunday primetime show Jambo T.V. on Canal 2. This will be followed on October 6 by a concert in Yaounde to present the album. If  General Valsero (as he now likes to be called) is still true to himself, it wouldn't take a magician to know that this latest album is riddled with political and activist – themed songs. Just the album title seems to be a direct reply to a political publication of the same name. Those who follow the news will know what I am talking about. Whatever the case, we wish him nothing but hits, billboard hits if you see what I mean.

U.S. – based Cameroonian artist Vreezyville now simply goes by the name Ville. According to the hiphop artist, this name change was caused by the realisati

on that people found it hard to pronounce the name Vreezyville. Others did not even know how to pronounce it at all. So to make things easy for everyone, he has decided to simply be called Ville henceforth although the former name will just be on the side like an alias. One question would asking is why did he pick a hard- to- pronounce name in the first place? Whatever the case, this clarification is timely as it dispels any nascent speculation that the name change was to completely erase his former band past and assert himself as independent artist now that he has gone solo.

Is there trouble in paradise? This is the question worth asking after a lengthy facebook post today from music producer Dijay Chuucss. In this post, the producer accuses Mumak exec Jules Nya of  saying funny things behind his back. This is after the Mumak exec reacted to a blog article to say that Dijay Chuucss has NEVER produced any track for Jovi and

that Jovi mixed and mastered not most but ALL of the tracks on his recently – released H.I.V. album. Dijay Chuucss goes ahead to reproduce excerpts from his correspondence with Jules Nya. He also adds that “…..I knw i am your biggest threat JULE NYA bcuz my production is out standing...” This incident comes as a shock to most who, from the collabos and featurings, had always seen a semblance of unity between these two music industry insiders. Pending a reaction from Jules Nya whom we tried in vain to get a hold of and in case these allegations turn out to be true, this could be an indication of the grey backdrop to the glam and charm that the music industry keeps portraying .

'

''Don 4 kwat'' hit-maker  JOVI 's scintillating , eccentric rap style and originality has raised a bar of credibility.  Following the official release of his debut LP ''H.I.V'' available on http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/h.i.v/id547296597  http://www.amazon.fr/H-I-V-Explicit/dp/B008OF1T1C, millions of fans across the world have been infected and I'm utterly no exception, ''New Star'' being my favourite . There's no doubt Jovi gets a positive appraisal , going viral on blogosphere and hitting hard with his thumping beats in every ''kwata'' in Cameroon. Like an

y fast-rising celebrity like Justin Bieber or Naija's Wizkid, JOVI has been looming in a stale atmosphere of industry gossip and negative energy. Jovi certainly has haters . There are people who do not see anything good in what he does.  It's insane when you start comparing  Jovi's version of ''Pitie'' by Tabuley Rochereau with Youssoupha 's . That's the argument I eavesdropped somewhere . Like it or not, Jovi is a pacesetter. Hey ! Is Jovi venting his indignation about having haters and letting them know he's still on the fast lane , or a shout out to Konvict ? .

His status on social network FACEBOOK reads  '' A Collaboration With A Big International Artist In the Making.We In da studio Baby.Shout Out To My Peeps At Konvict. Haters Can Suck A Dick, Will Post Soon. Hmm Maybe We'll shoot A Video.For More Info get on twitter @jovilemonstre.'' 

So , meet him on TWITTER and you'll definitely know what's up !
