Jovi and Pascal had enjoyed a cordial working relationship under New Bell Music. They severed ties and it’s now getting nastier. Both artists have had bitter exchanges on Twitter and it was evident there was a putrid atmosphere between them. A stale feud that has embarrassed a myriad of New Bell Music fans. 

I’m sure no one on earth ever thought Pascal will ever come near Jovi. 

To the utmost surprise of many, Pascal came to Jovi’s DOMAF concert for reasons we can’t tell.

In the middle of Jovi’s performance, he spots Pascal in the crowd.

He immediately stops his show abruptly and orders Pascal to be chucked out of the show. He call Pascal “Pussy boy”.

This was the height of humiliation. But why did Pascal go there in the first place?

Jovi took the industry by storm in 2012 when he churned out his monster hit “Don 4 kwat”, a tune which was allegedly plagiarised from Red Café’s “Hottest in da hood”. The title is even a witty translation to mboko pidgin.

However, Jovi was ingenious and adroit to embroider highly contextualized and relatable lyrics, painting a picture of our day-to-day lives on thumping beats .

His unique style earned critical acclamation. The “H.I.V” album was phenomenal.
Though Buea-based rapper Dr Kapt had already released a pidgin-infused album tailored for the streets, Jovi brought in a more sizzling ingredient that popularized pidgin rap.
In 2013, when Jovi already thought he was in full possession of the kingdom’s crown , Stanley Enow’s “Hein pere” which is another allegedly plagiarized song (Story for another day) popped up creating a remarkable trend. The song catapulted the image of Cameroon urban music to international spheres clinching an MTV Africa win.
Stanley gained much admiration nationally and it seemed Jovi was no longer basking under the spotlight. Attention was drifting towards Stanley whose guerilla marketing and branding approach and entrepreneural skills changed the rhetorics.
I’m sure Jovi expected Stanley Enow to be loyal and submissive to him. But the “Bayangi Boy” who had conquered the minds of millions of fans, doing huge tours and grabbing lucrative endorsements decided to ignore Jovi.
Then came the feud between the two giants.
Jovi wasn’t actually relegated because he was still doing well with his songs and had gained fidel following .
But his egocentric tendencies proved he wanted to get all the attention and didn’t want to be compared to anyone.
Both artists have different approaches in the game.
Jovi has been building content and sound which he thinks will create an identity for Cameroon music. He has been vocal about those who are not original especially who copy Nigerian style of music. He has not been collaborative nationally and internationally . In essence, if you’re not from his label, Jovi will hardly collaborate with you.
On the international arena, he’s got nothing to show. Jovi even refused to turn up for an MTV award nomination.
He once said he had a song with Wizkid he didn’t release. He’s been spotted with J Martins, produced for Akon but no collabo.
This is the kind of opportunity Stanley won’t let slide away.
Stanley Enow has been more business inclined. He’s been collaborating with African music household names like Sarkodie, Tu Face, Davido, Mr Eazi, Ice Prince, Fally Ipupa, Diamond Platinum etc. His public and media outings have been mindblowing.
Following Stanley Enow’s rise to fame, Jovi has decided to nurture what I consider a personality disorder which has today strained his relationship with other artists like Magasco, KO C, Pascal, Tzy Panchak, Mic Monsta etc.
He’s got a narcissistic personality disorder ; one of several types of personality disorders.
It is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, getting troubled relationships. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
Jovi wants to regarded as a god , to be given exaggerated importance and praises always showered on him as the best, the G.O.A.T etc. Reason why he claims he’s the “Mboko god”.
He’s got an inflated ego that he’ll never want to be bruised. We all know when M.I failed to mention him as one of Africa’s best rappers. Jovi started a whole drama , ranting on Twitter as usual.
Jovi always has a sense of entitlement, requires constant and excessive admiration. He expects to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it.
He’s mostly preoccupied with fantasies about success, brilliance and strength . His supporters are not helping. They are just adding more salt to the injury. Most of them are blind followers. I call them “Blind disciples”. “Mboko gang” admirers and supporters believe they are superior and like their celebrated icon belittle or look down on other artists they perceive as inferior. Jovi constantly gaslights Pascal , calling him names as “Socks seller” and many other hurtful innuendos. He insulted KO. C as a sarkodie copycat.
Jovi picked on Maahlox calling him to apologise meanwhile as a pure narcissist he’ll never apologise to anyone. Good news. Maahlox didn’t apologise.
Jovi’s recent outburst on Tzy Panchak was just a deliberate act to smear the brand of someone who has done alot this year to uncover talents to the admiration of a myriad of fans. Is he just being envious of Tzy Panchak’s speedy growth?
Jovi has criticised Stanley Enow’s show in US for the low turnout and poor venues. He’s now extending same criticism to Tzy Panchak. Can Jovi just mind his business and do hos own shows?
The criticism he hurls on Java Fest is just out of place. This is a festival that is gradually growing and garnering potential. It showcases Cameroon music which to many is laudable.
At this level, we should be commending such efforts and criticising constructively.
His recent derogatory remarks about Tzy Panchak shows he is arrogant or haughty, coming across as conceited and somewhat boastful.

Tzy replied him as being a hater and that’s evident. Even a fan who reached out to Jovi to say artists should be more united was blocked on Twitter by Jovi. Jovi actually blocks anyone thats talks anything negative about him.
He has significant interpersonal problems and easily feels slighted.
He reacts with rage or contempt whenever he is criticised.
Can Jovi just learn to regulate his emotions and behavior. He should learn to be selfless and support the growth of other artists who are not in his clique.
Our industry needs to grow through the practice of unity and mutual love.

Cameroonian striker Clinton Njie Mua has moved from Marseille to Dynamo Moscow, the Russian Premier League side announced on Thursday.

“Clinton Njie to Dynamo!!! Today, the Cameroon forward signed a contract with our club for four years,” Dynamo Moscow wrote on their Twitter account, adding that he will wear the number nine shirt. 

The transfer fee is a 5.5 million euro. 

The 25-year-old began his career at Lyon. After an unsuccessful two-year spell at Tottenham Hotspur, he joined Marseille, initially on loan, in 2016.

 Njie first played for Cameroon in 2014 and was a part of their squad in the recent Africa Cup of Nations, scoring in their last 16 defeat by Nigeria.

In 2017, Pascal severed ties with Jovi’s New Bell Music and later inked a record deal with Strange Kings . He churned out “Paapi” and “Benediction” under the imprint which was a complete swerve from his original style under Jovi’s  mentorship and according to pundits fell short of what people expected from him.   Pascal’s relationship with Strange Kings gradually deteriorated to a level where he was filed a law suit by the label for breaching the contract. 

Things have never been the same since Pascal left New Bell Music.  His popularity and following has gradually dwindled like a candle taper. He incurred huge debts while under Strange Kings and could only regain poise when he dropped “Pikin 4 Sun” EP.  

Pascal has been through a career ordeal and he seems to have learned from his mistakes . 

Sunday , May 5th, the “Check sense” crooner Pascal took to Twitter to declare he misses every second working with Jovi. This has triggered reactions from fans. 

He is now showing respect, remorse , admitting responsibility and trying to make amends with Jovi. 


From Jovi’s responses to Pascal’s tweets , he apparently felt hurt by Pascal’s actions and innuendos after he left New Bell Music. His reaction insinuates the fact that Pascal has been claiming creative authorship of the song “Check sense” . Jovi has come out to clarify how the sing came about .

Pascal who appears susceptible has acquiesced to Jovi’s massive influence on his career and showed gratitude for all he’s done for him. 

Jovi is still hurt but willing to let go the past. He has accepted  Pascal’s apology still mentioning him has his best rapper .

Clarence Seedorf

Patrick Kluivert

Former Dutch internationals Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert appointed to manage the Indomitable Lions at the 32nd African Cup of Nations to take place in Cameroon. 

This decision comes after a volte face on getting Eriksson due to his overly high wage demand. Clarence Seedorf has very little experience as a head coach. He coached Deportivo De la Coruna but the team was relegated to Division 2 while his duty as manager of his former club AC Milan in 2014 was ephemeral. FC Shenzhen equally wasn’t a fertile ground for Seedorf. However, Sports minister Bidoung Mpkatt and FECAFOOT might be counting largely on his experience as a footballer and hope his assiduity and savoir faire as a coach might bring positive results. #NexDimEmpire

Stanley Enow is an iconic figure and role model other Cameroonian artists should emulate. His verve, ingenuity in branding and music business savvy is an asset that keeps him relevant and clung to the throne for so long. Stanley Enow has succeeded to cement his image across Africa with his brand and music . 

Recently, 237showbiz accorded an interview to a Nigerian artist Solidstar , when asked about the 5 Cameroonian artists he’ll like to collaborate with, he frankly said he’s not vest with Cameroonian artists, and the only name that comes to his mind is Stanley Enow. 

That’s how far the Bayangi Boy has printed an indelible impression on the African music scene. We can only emulate rather than hate on his dramatic progression. 

Our greatest Achilles heel that many pundits keep complaining about is that lack of support from fellow compatriots. When P Square came to Cameroon , they were interviewed on Boom TV and what they said wasn’t different. “Support your artists”. Davido said same a few months ago before pulling a capacity crowd in Douala. 

Stanley Enow has mounted the pedestal of repute but he still feels Cameroonian artists don’t support each other.

He recently took to Twitter to frown at the fact that artists didn’t share photos of his meeting with Ghanaian president Nana Akufo Addo .

Cameroonian actress Stephanie Tum is hurling accusations on fellow colleague veteran actor Alenne Menget for being a gossip and promising him hell if ever he mentions her name again .
The exasperated actress took to Facebook to throw jabs at her one-time trusted confidant for slandering, tarnishing her image after making futile sexual advances towards her and for being so childish at his 40’s to expose issues about her past financial problems and marital life. She’s warned him never to call her name again and stay off her lane.

This heated outburst has triggered UK based blogger Bandy Kiki to add more salt to the injury. According to the owner of kinnaka blog, Alenne is a cantankerous gossip , a perv and ill mannered for requesting sex as a bait for movie roles . She further says
“Before I came out as a lesbian, Mr Alenne found out and tried to use it to silence me. when it didn’t work he badmouthed me and prevented me from getting sponsorship during the launch of kinnaka TV.
She has also called on victims to break the silence . Ni , Alenne Menget is yet to react to this toxic accusations.

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, 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”.
