All those who have been wondering what “Yokoko” and “Nyango” star Adah has been up to should wonder no

more. The crooner was surely busy concocting some r”n”b magic. The singer recently dropped a mellow tender track titled “Far” which we have brought near you on nexdimempire.com. Ladies will love this and guys will wish they were the author of this song. The video will soon drop but while waiting enjoy.

njokahGoing by their first offering, “Les Filles Njokah” have a long way to go as event organisers and promoters. Their first ever event – Njokah Newbie Jam– failed to the live up to the hype and excitement generated and expected from such a unique idea. Let’s try to forget the horrible sound system, the poor stage lighting, let’s overlook all that and focus on the content. The stand-up comics and musicians weren’t the best we’ve seen and their average performances were further hampered by the poor sound and lighting. The worst part of the entire evening were the dance crews. Onlookers at the Mermoz Banquet Hall were treated to Delire-like performances from crews that tried unsuccessfully to copy what they had seen in dance flicks like “Stomp the Yard” and more. In fact, unoriginal displays. The event to be brief wasn’t anything special although the entire idea of an event – organisation and promotion outfit is great. The organisers should do better next time if they really want their idea to blossom into something special.

nicoleIn a recent interview granted to a Cameroonian site, makossa singer  Nicole Mara contends that other forms of music are copies of Cameroonian music. Such a declaration is not very strange and joins a long list of other such declarations by other

Cameroonian musicians. This situation begs the question whether the waning popularity of Cameroonian music and musicians hasn”t made these artists feel inferior to their international counterparts from Nigeria or Côte d”Ivoire? Or is just resentment from losing the favour of Cameroonians – who are normally supposed to be their number one fans? These questions arise because when quizzed about the dwindling fortunes of Cameroonian music, many Cameroonian artists make statements like Nicole Mara”s. Be it an inferior complex or resentment, one thing is clear: our artists are not happy with playing second fiddle to international acts. But strange enough, there seem to be doing nothing about it except make hollow declarations like Nicole Mara”s. Most are still trapped in the 70″s when makossa ruled supreme. Wake up people and smell the roses. Even if other music forms get their rise from makossa, our artists should endeavour to be in sync with the sounds of the times which happen not to be makossa. Let me ask again: do Cameroonian artists have an inferiority complex or are they just resentful or ah hah are they just frustrated with the situation?

mboaThe 2012 Mboa Hiphop Awards have died but haven”t gone like T.I.”s 2009 hit. Ripples still continue to be felt from its chaotic organisation. Recently, some label execs have gone on social media to take hard swipes at event organiser, Tony Nobody calling him names and labeling him a megalomaniac. Rather than add to the insults or come to Tony”s defense, we should rather wonder whether the handicapped-nature of the Mboa Hiphop Awards isn”t symptomatic of the entire Cameroonian urban movement. In Cameroon, urban music is first of all a fringe genre that suffers from prejudice and is mainly promoted by youths, who are synonymous with limited resources. In an open letter reacting to the criticism that followed the 2012 event, Tony himself pointed to this fact as he blamed the situation on sponsors pulling out. So when lack of sponsorship is added to  low popularity and visibility, what can we expect but chaos despite the noblest of intentions. Tony Nobody surely has his faults, we all do, but he and his attempts should not be vilified disproportionately. If the Mboa HipHop Awards do not shine as radiantly as we wish it is not necessarily because of Tony. It is just because of the context in which our urban music movement finds itself. So rather pray than for humble endeavours like Tony”s to fail, we should pray they succeed because there are a reflection of  the

collective reality called our urban music movement. And did I add that it is still in its formative years?

mbutaFor the sake of their carriers, Cameroonian players are going wherever the wind blows them,

even if that is Thailand. This is the latest stopover in the zigzagging career of  Indomitable Lion Andongcho Mbuta. After bursting onto the national football scene in 2005 with PWD  Bamenda then marching on to the world scene with clubs in the USA, the 28 yr old has signed a 2 year deal with Thai side Army FC. Let”s hope this is not the end of his carrier but rather a springboard. In 2011, he was called to the Lion”s den by then coach Javier Clemente. That call-up ended with him scoring  a goal against Macedonia. Andongcho is not the first Cameroonian to play for a Thai team. He is simply following in the footsteps of guys like Ohandza Zoa who played for Buriram Pea, grabbing headlines for his prolific goal-scoring record.

jeanThe highly – anticipated press conference finally took yesterday. During this meet media outing Indomitable Lions” coach Jean –

Paul Akono  made a number of interesting declarations with the most pertinent being that outstanding home-based players could expect to be called to the national team. He also made it known that his main goal is to qualify the team for the 2014 world cup in Brazil. In this light, some experts will  be sent to South Africa during the upcoming 2013 AFCON  to gauge  the D.R.C and Togo, both teams being in the same group as the Lions for the soon-to-begin Africa world cup qualifiers.
