Alexander Song’s bestial act against a Croatian player during the World Cup which got him red-carded and receiving a 3 match ban has inspired Douala-based rapper Maahlox Le Vibeur to drop a new song titled ”Alexandre Song Dans Ton Dos”. Quite amusing ! The song has a creative lyrical content. This comes after ”Choupo Moting ne sort pas” released before the World Cup. The rapper was a guest on Canal 2’s prime-time show ”Jambo” last Sunday where he premiered the video. The elbow dance was funny.
The tides are rising with a new trend of bikutsi music taking over the media. As the frenzy surrounding Mani Bella’s ”Pala pala” gradually effaces, Coco Argentee has resurfaced with an epic song titled ”Fallait pas” off her new album ”Tresor”. We are now poised to understand that the most successful contemporary bikutsi tunes have aspects of obscenity. ”Fallait pas” is the new chart-topping hit in Cameroon. Quite a mouth-watering story tho’.
Stanley Enow has featured on the remix of Nyanda’s song ”Slippery when wet” . Jamaican-born Nyanda is one of the singers of the award-winning duo Brick n Lace. Critics are busy dusting down the same superlatives they had applied to ”Hein pere” after its release. Well, listen and make your own judgment .
Canada-based award-winning Cameroonian Afro-pop songstress Missy Bk is undoubtedly one of the most promising artists to watch this year. On the heels of a highly acclaimed single ”Set me free” , she has taken a further mile to collaborate with Makossa diva Annie Anzouer on a powerful hit ”My baby remix” ,which will likely be successful if massively promoted.
N-Stan is a fresh talent whose musical prowess deserves recognition. After dropping his debut single ”Lolo” , rather considered obscene for the public to consume, N-Stan has cleaned his face with a pure love story of a village girl who steals his heart away titled ”Feel Love” . Though some music pundits judge the opus as Davido-Aye-inspired , it’s however tuneful. The video is indeed a remarkable improvement by Dr Nkeng Stephens.
Numerica is at his third official video release titled ”Wallaye Billaye” . The song is an extract from his impending album ”My Own Way” . Well-choreographed and mind-blowingly directed, the video is a must-watch.
Indomitable Lion’s Midfielder, Stephane Mbia Etoundi, is the first victim to have a bite of the wrath of angry fans among the 23 players who represented Cameroon in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil after fans pound on him and vandalised his car.
Hours after the Lions returned from Brazil, Mbia was attacked in the Score Shopping Mall at the Yaounde Central Market on Wednesday, June 25.
According to reports Mbia, who had purchased a few items from the mall and was about to drive off, was suddenly surrounded by angry looking fans, who were not happy that Mbia was squandering the whooping FCFA 60 million given to each player in prelude to the World Cup after a shameful result. As a result of this, angry fans pounced on him, tore his clothes, vandalised his car.He was safe by the timely intervention of the forces of law and order just when fans were about to squeeze life out of him.
However, some faction of the fans were trying to protect Mbia saying that he was only player in the team who put up an perfect performance in the team and should should be spared.
Moukandjo was lucky to have narrowly escaped as he passed two hours after the irate fans have scattered.
Others suggested that lions’ captain Samuel Eto’o should be the one to go under such a treatment since he was the one that led the team to demand for bonus increase.
Meanwhile, some of the players had envisaged such a reception from the population and had to take their various flights to their respective clubs in Europe, instead of coming back home. This explains the reason why out of 23 players who made the trip to Brazil, only 12 players returned to Cameroon.

almost impossible for him to bring the MAMA home as he had 2 tough contenders in Nigeria’s Burna Boy
and Phyno but through resilience, determination and a rigorous daily voting campaign strategy with
support from fans and other artists from afar and wide, it was proven that l’impossible n’est pas
