Davido’s statement that he knows only Stanley Enow and Samuel Eto’o in Cameroon triggered a stale outpouring from Cameroonian celebrities. Now is the turn for Burkinabe artists . 

Charlotte Dipanda was in Ouagadougou on April 25th for the 18th edition of KUNDE D’or award.

Interviewed by Afriyelba.net, the Cameroonian diva was very frank;

Journalist: Do you know Burkinabe artists?

Charlotte Dipanda: No

Afriyelba: Not even one ?

Charlotte Dipanda: No

The “Sista” singer has been receiving pejorative remarks from Burkinabe musicians for claiming she doesn’t know any of them. Two days after the polemic, Charlotte was interviewed by Tackborse.TV informing her that her statement was badly construed.

Journalist: Your response frustrated so many artists.

Charlotte Dipanda : Really? I’m sorry, I don’t know any Burkinabe artist, but it doesn’t mean there aren’t talented artists in Burkina. I was the first to be surprised when I was told my music is being listened here. You see, this is my first time here. It can’t hurt me if a Burkinabe says he doesn’t know me. Because there are so many artists. Now that there’s a polemic on what I said, I’ll take time to know more about Burkinabe music. It’ll be my pleasure”.

Fellow actress Solange Ojong found herself dragged into this quagmire .

 

 Solange Ojong was mistaken for Soli Egbe as a clue was given by Valery Atia that the victim’s name starts with an “S”. 

However, the blogger Henriette Thatcher apologized publicly to Solange Ojong. 

Soli Egbe has come out to debunk all allegations against her . According to her post, the alleged sex scandal is an attempt to smear her reputation and give a bad image about the Cameroon film industry.  Read below

The entertainment industry mourns the loss of Bamenda-based artist and producer Gee Reign . He was discovered dead at his studio after suffering from an acute seizure.
Contrary to rumours that he died due to acute drug intoxication, Gee Reign has been under a troubling health predicament since after being a victim of an accident that took him on coma for 2 weeks.

In October 2016 , during the industry nite in Buea, he collapsed on stage after being attacked by a photosensitivity seizure . He was medically adviced not to stay alone at any given moment but 17 April was an unfortunate day for the artist who was alone in the studio.
Gee Reign was spotlighted in music scene in 2012 , when he released the video of his soul-soothing opus “Blowing Ashes” shot in Lagos. He has collaborated with Gasha on “Nkap” and El Presido on “Tori Long time short”. 
Gee Reign’s death has triggered an outpouring on social media as his death has intensely gone viral , but unfortunately his music wasn’t celebrated when he was alive. Permit me call it saccharine artistic morbidity .
