Profile: Kareyce Fotso

Posted In: Art, Profile by Nchanji

Cameroon is an inextinguishable source of artistic talent. Another artist who has added truth to this affirmation is Kareyce Fotso. The Bamileke- born songstress is slowly making her way into the elite of Cameroonian music. After successful studies in the sciences , she obtained the right to indulge her passion. Her voice and outstanding performance while in the group Korongo Jam got her noticed. She later traveled to France to perfect her skills which she had been horning while performing in cabarets in Yaounde. She has since been on an unstoppable rise to the top, performing alongside African world music greats like Dobet Gnahore. With hits like “Mayole” and “Lomdieu”, she is drawing comparisms with other divas like Charlotte Dipanda. Enjoy one of her hits right here.

lets go back to the early 90s when Cameroonian music was rocking to the rhythms of “Benskin” from the Bamileke people of Cameroon, Tala Andre Marie was giving us tunes after tunes. Today we bring back those memories.

Enjoy !

For those who might not know, Guy Michel is the artist who was chosen to represent Cameroon at the 2010 edition of AFRICASTAR. As a gospel artist, he offers in this track “Inside your love” a touching   yet trendy  song that has the power to appeal to both religious and non-religious persons alike. The sound and his vocal performance  provide the song with the urban appeal of  a hip-hop track. Listen and enjoy.

Now that the celebrations or should we say “events” have come and gone, this should be a good time for a level-headed debate on the significance of the World Music Day in our context. In Cameroon, Sam Mbende, Ebogo Armerand and the general family of musicians provided an interesting prelude to the day with their heated disagreements over who is boss when artists’ copyright are in question. The D-day came and went with artists calling for more to be done for them. My ensuing piece shouldn’t be construed as a denigration of their concerns or demands. No such  parallel should be drawn. But with the incessant cry of Cameroonian artists echoing in our heads, it is worth asking whether the music scene in Cameroon is all about artists? Of course, no. Then why have recent actions left one with the distinct impression that when music in Cameroon is a theme then the sole if not the main stakeholders who should be given a platform for expression are musicians. I am simply trying to say that it is high time for fans a.k.a consumers of music to be part of the picture. Artists produce music in vain if no one consumes.  This implicit disregard for consumers of music is equally evident in the kind of music some artists put on the market. Their songs show that they don’t include consumers’ taste in their considerations when they are working on an album. This disregard impacts them negatively as upon release their albums receive a cold shoulder from the fans who ravenously consume the music that appeals to them. If we want to change the situation then this what we should do. We should henceforth endeavour to integrate fans in the debates because although they may be part of the problem through piracy, they can be part of the solution if their  concerns are considered. Are we together?

Juwon Simmons is a Sweden-based Cameroonian artist. Here is one of his latest releases titled ” The free. The song features Swedish vocal talent Anna Norlin. Just like hip-hopers, lovers of  soul and jazz will equally  drawn to this track. The video is pretty unconventional/experimental and ties very much with the poetic undertones of the song. Listen and see for yourselves.
