From the defunct Best Music Inc to Empire Company , music pundits and fans thought it was a move to greenery and a promising future for rapper Nami Nami Cyrus. The Kumba-raised emcee garnered immeasurable attention and was lauded when he released ‘Ewakajo’ under Best Music in 2015. It’s quite paradoxical that after being signed to Pit Bacardi’s A-list label Empire Company to join Magasco, his ember has since dwindled near extinction. 

The rapper dropped ‘Amassa No Vex’ in 2016 which didn’t get robust promotion on media platforms like Magasco. The outcome was deplorable . ‘Dreams’ ft Pit Bacardi produced by Slimbeatz  was released in January 6th and the video unveiled on April 28th and since then hasn’t made any impact in the urban music sphere. Label owner Pit Bacardi who is known was his connection at Trace TV , has been abortive in building a brand and love-mark around Nami Nami Cyrus .

It is quite glaring that Nami Nami Cyrus is getting frustrated with the way he’s ill-treated at Empire, evident in his recent venting of distress on social media.

His single ‘Time Bomb’ that was since announced by Pit Bacardi on Twitter is yet to explode. His artwork was designed using a picture , photographed about a year ago. This means he hasn’t done a photo shoot for a year under Empire company unlike Magasco.

Nami Nami Cyrus, is masking his pain, his career is apparently not advancing. What next ?

Top Cameroonian striker Vincent Aboubakar scored a hat-trick against Moreirense on Sunday. He has been in sizzling form this season scoring 4 goals in 4 matches.

The striker gave the hosts the lead in the 18th minute before getting his brace four minutes later as the hosts entered the half time interval two goals to the good. And the striker who spent last season on loan at Turkish champions Besiktas grabbed his treble with 13 minutes left on the clock.

Aboubakar was replaced by Miguel Layun with seven minutes left while Algeria’s Yaccine Brahimi played only 45 minutes for the home side.

Afrima (All Africa Music Awards) jury just churned out the list of nominees on the official Facebook page and Cameroon is dominantly represented in the Best Central African Artist categories . 

Locko and Jovi were nominated in the Best Male Central African artist category while Reggae Dancehall sensation Ewube ( Fall 4 u) , Daphne (Calee) , Mimie, Reniss (Manamuh),  Merveille, Montess (In luv wit a gunman)  mount the pedestal in the Best Female Central African artist category.  

The dust is yet to settle after Magasco’s name was erased from the list of nominees at AFRIMMA and substituted with Mr Leo and we are now facing another devastating blunder. 

The second successive nomination of Montess with the same song “In love wit a gunman” for this year’s edition of the award stirs up controversy and submerges us into a doubt of its credibility.

It’s quite evident that the judges are not meticulous in their selection , thus rendering the award debatable.

It’s no news the difficulties English oriented Cameroonian artists are facing getting their videos on Trace TV despite the amazing products they are putting out. Trace Tv is the most watched French African music channel and acts a big catalyst for exposure for French African artists. Statistics show that when you are 90% English in your song from Cameroon, the probability of your songs getting on Trace are very slim.

The release of Ewube’s “Fall4U” video stirred up a social media debate on how bad her management is or has been. she is the most underated international act Cameroon has and needs to change her management ” says posts on facebook and other social media platforms”. The growth of “Ewube” has not been as smooth as her music sounds, and introducing a genre “dancehall” which has not yet been accepted in Cameroon with very limited resource is a brave step. She and her management have decided to create an identity which is something very few artist understand or maintain.

Going back to Trace Tv, since every successful urban artist in Cameroon is presumed to have passed through the networks of Trace Tv, they are now the measuring rods of promotion in our industry. Ewube released “Trowey” ft Rude Bway under Best Music Inc. and the video was aired on Trace and everyone was hoping this will be the stepping stone in her career. Trace stopped airing the video two months later, same as some other English Cameroonian artists. What happen? why stop? if it was a bad video or song why play it in the first place? Are they forces working hard to reduce playtime of these artist on the most popular channel which is the height of promotion now in French Africa?

Ewube later released “Pop It” under her new label Omega Records. Great song, amazing video, this video was denied by Trace team but is airing Africa Magic Channels, same for her next video Choleh Me which had an even better video, but is airing on MTVBase. We are still to uncover the actual reason for the imbalance of airplay on Trace Tv. Ewube’s “Fall4U” is now airing on Trace Africa, great video, legendary song, lets see how far it goes on the channel hoping the ” Enlevé ca” forces don’t get her video and they want to, what is the reason?


Keep watching and sharing the video and follow;

As the rift between Jovi and Stanley Enow becomes seismic and near explosion, Afrimma winner Wax Dey

has jumped into the scene offering 5 million frs each to both rappers for whoever releases a better diss song. 

Jovi’s sarcastic reply got me laughing. Jovi rather advises Wax Dey to use his money to help himself by buying views, likes and followers on social media.

Wax Dey reiterates that his offer stands.

The urban music scene has been under turbulence in the past 2 days with abusive and controversial tweets streaming from the ‘Mboko God’ Jovi and he doesn’t show any signs of ending his rants any time soon. Amusing enough, this crazy tweets surfaced just after the Bob Marley Day celebration.

Could he be high on weed or just having fun with his phone ?

Jovi, on Twitter posted derogatory utterances about Stanley Enow calling him a “Wet pussy about to get f**ked’  Magasco ‘ A pig and Pit Bacardi his father”. Damn ! Check below. 

 

 

These harsh insults hurled at these artists has triggered a feud between Jovi and Stanley Enow’s camps while Magasco as usual remains silent.

The Bamenda Boy has rather been posting photos of his show with Booba and Dosseh at the Omnisport stadium in Yaounde like he doesn’t care.

Fans have also been busy judging Jovi’s latest awkward behaviour on social media. 

Albeit Stanley’s silence, his brother and Motherland label head Martin Enow has not taken it lightly. He reacted to Jovi’s tweet by challenging him to come

to Douala in the next 24 hours if he’s man enough. Stanley Enow’s manager Didier Kouamo has also come out to reprimand Jovi.

 

Martin Enow has extended his fury to Jovi’s girlfriend Celine Fotso with torrents of insults. Celine has blocked Martin on Twitter as we report.  Lol.

Jovi later stated that he hopes everyone is being entertained. Is he insinuating the insults were just to erupt a stunt or is Jovi actually serious ? 

Apart frim blogosphere reactions, Salatiel has also reacted to the ongoing feud saying real artists with talents should rather beef in songs not act like ‘Hip hop cry babies’.

Today May 15, Jovi just changed Stanley Enow’s name to ” WET P” and calls his music ‘wack’. He adds that he will never collaborate with the Stanley Enow. 

This is just adding salt to a bleeding wound. His twitter fingers are more active than ever. 

 

What is his reason for throwing shades at the Bayangi Boy ?

New Bell Music’s Reniss has been basking in glory since the release of her monster hit “La sauce”. The captivating and thought-provoking  yet controversial phrase “Dans la sauce” was a remarkable trend during the just ended African Cup of Nations in Gabon championed by Cameroon. This phrase invented by New Bell Music went viral on media platforms across Africa and the President of the republic Paul Biya during his congratulatory speech equally made use of the phrase. 

Orange Cameroon,  a telephony company has taken advantage of the buzz “Dans la sauce” to proliferate their promotion campaign without permission from Jovi nor the artist Reniss who created the idea. Thus violating their intellectual property right.

Immediately this campaign surfaced online, New Bell Music has released a statement on Twitter condemning the act by the communication company and further threatened it won’t be easy on them.

New Bell Music is protective of our intellectual property. Corporations don’t have to exploit artist’s ideas for their own gain” 

Legally, if the patent has been protected by New Bell Music,  this is what can happen. 

A patent owner may enforce his patent by bringing a patent infringement action (lawsuit) in court against anyone who uses his invention without permission. If the lawsuit is successful, the court will take one of two approaches. It may issue a court order (called an injunction) preventing the infringer from any further use or sale of the infringing device, and award damages to the patent owner. Or, the court may work with the parties to hammer out an agreement under which the infringing party will pay the patent owner royalties in exchange for the use.

Affaire a suivre…

It all started on December 27th when “Coller la petite” hit-maker Franko took to Facebook to derogate the winners of MTV Africa Music Awards , presumably the greatest achievement for an artist in Africa. The rapper intimated that there is no financial reward accompanied with the trophy. In a seemingly taunting manner, he earlier on dedicated his “Disque D’or” to the MTV Africa Music Awards.  He made use of the Jovi-coined word “Mongshung” to describe the award. 

Jovi’s new hit “Mongshung”is #1 Hip Hop tune on Trace Urban. 

December 28th,  Stanley Enow , the sole Cameroonian winner of the coveted MTV awards took to Facebook and posted Jovi’s latest tune “Mongshung” commending the song as one of his favorite this year 2016.

This post has astonished a myriad of fans and pundits who have known both rappers as foes. 

Jovi and Stanley Enow have had a rugged relationship in the past characterized by vocal jabs in songs and beefs most often dramatized by social media. Worth-noting, Stanley has always shown respect and utter appreciation for Jovi’s music from day one .

Jovi on his part showed Stanley Enow unflinching support when he was nominated for MTV Africa Music Awards , rallying his fans to vote for him. A stir of happiness and show of approval has moved across social media for Stanley’s move. To some, it’s a show of unity , humility and maturity. 

About 30 minutes after historic post , “Ca sort comme ca sort” rapper Maahlox has come into the scene with a baleful and provocative comment referring to Stanley Enow as an “ass-licker” meaning he is just a brown-nose who is trying to flatter Jovi with an intention of gaining something. From the comments on the post, Maahlox seems  to be enraged. I don’t know why. 

He informs Jovi in an idiomatic manner to tell Stanley to be careful because while trying to go down and lick, the crown might fall from his head. Interesting !

This has been the acme of trouble and heated controversy. It’s quite doubtful why Maahlox will throw such a jab at Stanley Enow. Is he creating a vicious cycle.  Check it below; 

There’s substantial amount of evidence of hatred and proof that Franko and Maahlox are teaming up to devalue Stanley Enow and his achievements.  

However,  in every hip hop game there must be “beefs” to instil interest and buzz. Remember Biggy and 2 Pac, Jay-Z & Nas,  Drake & Meek Mill .

Let’s wait for the next move.

We are Nexdim !

Following an urgent press release communicated on social media, the usual venue of the Douala HipHop Festival has been changed abruptly .  The festival which was slated to commence today December 27th and end on December 30th at Stade Soppo Priso Bonapriso has been altered due to unforeseen circumstances.  

According to the organisers,  a white lady presumed to be of American nationality , came to the venue while the podium was being set up with her huge dog to complain that the noise from the event will be unbearable. The noise from that area has always prompted her to spend her nights at nearby Starland Hotel. She further stated. She therefore ordered the preps to discontinue.

Forces of law and order under her influence later stormed the area to stop the organisers from continuing with the preparations.

In this light, the team with deep regret has decided to move the event to Parc De Prince in Bali, Douala. However,  the program remains unchanged.
