Reggae-soul musician Daddy Black has resurfaced with a 3-track EP of immensely inspirational music for you to savour. The EP is dubbed “Freedom O’clock” and includes “I no be small boy” as bonus. Nation of Hustlers’ frontliner Daddy Black showcases his lyrical prowess and vocal strength. It’s a must-listen.

Track Listing 

Freedom O’clock

Tori Tori

Money no get friend

I no be small Boy

Press release

A true artist, like we know, does more than just compose words into a beautiful piece of music and sell them. He transcends the music-for- sale universe in which wallow most of his contemporaries. Like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh , Fela Kuti , Martin Lurther King Jr, Malcom X, Ti Ken Jah Facoly, Lucky Dube, Alpha Blondy etc., Daddy Black, winnows his words not just for good music’s sake, but for a cause that has as primary motive to emphasize the need for social, political and economic change in the nation.
For instance, “Freedom O’clock” produced by Lion Riddims(Based in ROMANIAN ) is an earnest political message to the head of State . A more or less, direct way of asking him mend the helms of the country that are going fray. This spectacularly revolutionary reggae song, ensues from the dire political turmoil that has claimed the lives of “Brethren” in the North West region. From the lyric itself, we hear the voice of an angry people, a hoarse and sad voice that wants to be heard by an indifferent regime.
The second piece “Tori Tori, (Monkey go chop pepper)” produced by “Inadeplace” is a typical ragamuffin record, sung in collaboration with Kay Dwin, tackles a more general societal phenomenon. Because it has not dawned on most people that anything they do comes right back at them, it feels just imperative to put them in the know of the gospel and sincere truth about nature by creating music for such purpose. Most people, in the government and in the streets do not have an inkling how deep and morally elevating this phenomenon is. So, this song is a crucial warning to most if not all the people.
The third piece” Money no get friend” Produced by Junior Chavez, this tune is a tantalizing glimpse of genius to come from the threshold of Cameroon. This time it is neither a cry for political change nor a warning to the society at large, it is a keen observation of human nature. Experience has proven that most people who gather up around you in times of merry completely vanish from you in times of peril. This keen observation fanned the embers in the Go-Getter’s heart, so much so that when the flames got going, he felt the deep seated need to make a song that will air his findings. The findings are not quite good because it’s a devastating thing to know that some friends are not friends but fiends come around just for the single purpose of drowning your ocean.

The burgeoning urban music scene in Cameroon has witnessed a plethoric increase of record labels. MUMAK sold the dream which ignited a revolutionary movement. According to news relayed from Kamer Flow Magazine, Best music first lady Ewube is witnessing a down drift in her career.
In 2014, music junkies and friends Didiblaise, Slimbeatz and Nami Cyrus started Best Music Inc with a cream of immense talents like Mic Monsta and Ewube ,Tzy Panchak and Young Birdie.
Top-notch producer Slimbeatz brought in his protegee Ewube into Best Music in 2014.
Ewube’s debut single “Party All Nyte”, a spicy dancehall song produced by ace beat maker Slimbeatz was unbelievably phenomenal and created a massive impression This ushered her into the hall of reputable urban female artists in Cameroon.
With a beguiling voice, irresistible charm and stage charisma, delectable Ewube became highly coveted . She became highly sought-after for performances across Cameroon.

img-20160929-wa0001
She electrified the stage during the launching of MTN EasyBooster in Limbe, performed alongside Stanley Enow and Mink’s during the MTN Campus Tour, Douala HipHop Festival and the University Games.
Her aura and overwhelming impact enabled her to clinch an endorsement deal as brand ambassador for Reaktor.
She had a brace nomination at the CAMEE AWARDS and the Urban Jamz Awards 2016 where her exceptional rendition of “Trowey” caught Stanley Enow’s attention. He couldn’t help but announce a future collaboration.
Ewube was the first female to be bestowed an award for highest MTN ZIK downloads.

img-20160929-wa0005
According to rumours, Ewube’s career has always been scarred by disagreements over her video releases. Apart from in-house conflicting opinions over “Party All Nyte” video, the drawn-out delay of “Trowey” video release was due to the disagreement at the Best Music camp.
The label mates claimed the video was middling, substandard and hence not worthy to be released. Not impressed with the video, the strife between Ewube’s manager and the rest of the label mates was evidenced when he went ahead to release it without their consent. It took Best Music one full year to release the video for a much acclaimed song.
The public sensed a stale air when the video wasn’t shared on social media by the rest of the label members following its release.

img-20160929-wa0002
The video however aired on Trace Africa, Boom TV, Canal 2 and other local channels in Cameroon. Seemingly, the hatchet hasn’t been buried since then between the Ewube’s manager Didiblaise and the rest of the camp.
Today, the once hopeful Best Music seems to be a phantasm as the key artists have signed to different labels. Mic Monsta moved to Kreef Entertainment, Nami Nami Cyrus was signed by Empire Company and Tzy Panchak clinched a deal with Blu Nation. The label is yet to utter any statement regarding Ewube’s future.
The much-admired prodigy has been inconsistent with her releases , quiet and unnoticed after the controversial “Trowey” video release.
It’s a pity how an incredible talent like Ewube hasn’t blown up. Can it be due to lack of investment or due to the
prolonged disagreement between the label mates and executives?
Like MUMAK, Best Music is ostensibly a crumbling record label, collapsing like a cardcastle.
