Cameroonian artist/entrepreneur Sol’e has released  the brand new single “ Buffalo Soldier” from the band AMER. The single is currently being streamed and is affordable to each and every one. It is a perfect reflection of what African music truly is. The band has been very busy although its member have not been  living in the same country for a

while now. In 2012, through several campaigns and releases, they made a name for themselves by being highly active on social networks. The time has come for  AMER , through the efforts of Sol’e, its biggest fan and promoter, to burst unto

the African urban music scene. “Hip Hop Profession 2.0” is the title of their forthcoming album. The  2.0 in the title is an indication of the communication strategy for  this project. In fact, it refers to the  large community of thousands of friends and fans online.

filmYeah, yeah, I know lovers of mediocrity will be up in arms but this is a conversation

we must have. This is a question that must be asked: are Cameroonians films videography or cinematography? Simply put, do the reels of films our toddler industry is increasingly churning out worthy of the appellation movie or film in the professional sense of the word? Or are they nothing more than video lengths of  motion with  no underlying artistic logic or design? Are our films just “persons caught on camera”. Don”t get me wrong. Nobody is denying the socio-cultural function of self-projection that our films play, no that is not the issue. Somebody is simply asking when we will focus on quality. As the film industry goes up a notch, this is a question we must answer soonest. An industry cannot start, exist and thrive on just the socio-cultural value. So let”s ask ourselves the

question, are our films more of videography or cinematography?

henriCameroonian players have not been unconcerned by the January transfer window. Fenerbahçe”s Cameroonian forward Henri Bienvenu Ntsama has signed a 6 month

loan deal with Spanish club Real Saragoza. Some pundits opine that this move is the result of growing competition for a first team spot with the coming

of Senegalese striker Moussa Sow and Dutchman Dirk Kuyt. This will be the player”s third club in Europe after Young Boys of Berne and Fenerbahçe. Before moving to Europe, the player had stints with two Tunisian clubs; Athlétique Bizertin and Esperance of Tunis. In Cameroon, he started his career with Cotonsport of Garoua.

ponce2Lady Ponce is

making headlines for all the wrongs reasons unfortunately. In fact, the Bikutsi star is alleged to have been arrested and detained in Yaounde due to her supposed involvement in human sex organ trafficking.  Other reports however followed to contend that these stories are baseless and untrue. Her manager has been quoted as saying that the artist is in Paris to shoot a video with big names like Manu Dibango and others. Stories like these, whether true or not, are surely not good for anybody”s reputation at a time when we are witnessing an increase in crimes with ritualistic undertones. “Wouna leave Lady Ponce yee name for dang”. Innocent until

proven guilty.

da thrillDA-THRILL is a Cameroonian band made up of three gents – SALATIEL LIVENJA (Salas), IKOSO ELVIS (Rudy), AKWANDOU BLAISE (Blaise B.), – and a lady – NFOR MIRABEL (Myra). The group was formed in March 2010 when Salatiel and Rudy were in 3rd year of university and Blaise B.  in final year high of school. The three guys easily clicked as they were already singing together in some accapella groups and recording songs at M1 and Favoo studios Limbe. They decided to come together as a group when the Nescafe African Revelation 2010 was launched. As time went on, they felt the need for a feminine touch in the band and so Carine Nkamdem came in. Together, they won the Nescafe competition at the national level and were vice champions at the Pan African Finals in Dakar. Myra the last member of the group came in early 2012 when Carine sailed for other shores. The band has two singers (Blaise and Myra), a singer and rapper (Salatiel), and a dancehall artist (Rudy). They get their musical influences from acts like the DAARA J FAMILY, BLACK EYED PEAS, MORGAN HERITAGE, SEXION D’ASSAUT and many African world music as well as modern day Afro urban music. Soundwise, they are into Afro beats, Pop, Hip Hop, Reggae, and Cameroonian native styles. They perform in English, French, Douala, Ewondo, and some other Cameroonian native languages.

As national winners of the NESCAFE AFRICAN REVELATION 2010, they just recorded their first album “NEW DAWN”  under the management of CY ENTERTAINMENT and sponsored by NESCAFE . The album is due for release in February 2013.

 THE 1st ALBUM “NEW DAWN”

The album “NEW DAWN” was recorded between 2011 and November 2012. It is a thirteen – track piece with a wide variety of genres, ranging from Hip Hop Makossa, Techno Decaler to Afro Zouk to Soka to Reggae, Pop and R’n’B. The group is currently signed with CY ENTERTAINMENT which produced and managed the group for NESCAFE. The album was produced, mastered and mixed at M1 studios Buea, where Salatiel works as a major sound engineer and music producer. It was mastered in Paris by the legendary JEFF ATTIOGBE. The album was produced 90 percent by Salatiel, a song by Blaise, and a song by Brunz. In the intro track “I see the light”, this masterpiece carries a  message of hope for the future to the youth of the world especially of Africa. Messages of love are not left

out, with songs like “Je te yah moh”, “Say

I do”, “One last dance” and “Admirable”. Virtues like patience  and themes like politics also feature in the album with songs like “Molo molo” and “Freedom” respectively. The theme song “New dawn” paints the picture of a new Africa while  there are also dance and celebration songs like “Bring it to the dance floor”. The album ends with a song dedicated to the sponsoring brand NESCAFE. With this debut album, DA-THRILL hopes to achieve an international reputation and participate in all the big shows around Cameroon, Africa and the world to bring their music closer to their fans.

notesConstant and persistent witness to wide media coverage of the rise and rise of Nigerian, Ghanian and other entertainment makes some Cameroonians jealous and wonder when will we join this fast-moving train of African entertainment. Let”s admit it, on international platforms for African entertainment we are absent; Big

brother, Africa Magic and the list is long. If it is any consolation,this situation is not due to a dearth of talent from Cameroon. So this state of things has got some wondering, who will sing Cameroon”s international hit song? Which Cameroonian artist will author the song that will put us on the map of African entertainment? The song that will be played from Cape Town to Accra to Lagos and Nairobi. Who will sing that song? While you rummage through your minds for an answer, permit me interject. The Cameroonian singer who will accomplish this fit is he/she who will understand that music today is not a hobby or a game. It is a product and if you want to be successful, you must deliver the best of what the public -consumers- want. All those who do not have fans in mind when making music  should pack and go home. This is no country for snubs. Those who do not know they are entertainers and must put up a good show should change their line of work. Entertainment today is not a hobby. Capiche?

Cameroonian singer Numerica has dropped the video

to his recently- released track “Vas y molo“. If you have reservations about the track, have none about the video. It is great and littered with eye candy, if you see what I mean. Watch and enjoy.
