All so fresh on the international music scene, after the release of his mini album kaleidoscope called “Mr. Pleasure”, Frank Kesi, singer and composer of Cameroonian origin, presents his brand new video for the song “I No Be Know”. If you find any similarities between this clip and the “Bouge” video from X Maleya, this is no coincidence. Notice the slowmo effect, the look of the leading girl and the energetic dance steps in both vids. Frank Kesi recognizes the talent of others in showbiz and his small nod to the singers of “Bouge” and “Mon Ex” here is just the type of behavior he wishes to see in Cameroonian urban culture.
“There are many artists in Cameroon who think that the people of the Diaspora are disconnected from their roots. This is not true! It won’t hurt to support and respect each other once in a while,” says the artist, who despite his affinity with genres such as reggae and R&B, kept his African authenticity. Although nobody dares to say it out loud, there has always been some type of animosity between artists residing in Cameroon and those who live oversees. The Cameroonian artists of the Diaspora are always accused of only coming back to their roots when they need help selling music. Long time French expat Pit Bacardi broke the mentalities when he dared to push acts like Duc-Z and X Maleya under his Empire Company.
Kesi’s interesting touch on his video won’t go unnoticed. Check it below!

On the heels of the sweet-sounding R&B tune ‘’Ebangha’’and ”Diana”, SJ Haven‘s frontline act Steve’Slil proves his originality, proficiency and unmatched creativity as he unspools a 100% ‘Camer-embellished’ festive tune titled ‘’I cut you café’’.The colloquial Cameroonian expression is used to show respect or commend someone for an attribute or achievement. It is a mimic of military salutation which is equally fused in the dance moves of the tune. ‘I cut you café’ is an up-tempo Afro-pop opus with a makossa bass line, drum and guitar pattern. This sultry R&B/pop delivery gets you in a shindig mood. Steveslilsays he got inspiration listening to makossa and uses excerpts of Rumta’s most famous hit ‘’Bambampe’’ which he says immortalizes his childhood. The song was produced by Slimbeatz of Best Music Inc. The video is shall be released in the days ahead. WATCH OUT FOR THE VIDEO !!
