MTV BASE has unleashed a list of the hottest MCs this year 2016 in French Africa. The list comprises 4 Cameroonian rappers Stanley Enow, Maahlox, Pit Baccardi and Franko.  Stanley Enow has been a regular while Franko’s groundbreaking hit “Coller la petite” and Maahlox’s “Ca sort comme ca sort” has propelled to the acme of fame. An astonishing omission is Jovi whom many thought should be part of the list. 

Kudos !

The famed “Bamenda Boy” Magasco has been having a torrent of criticism hurled at him for performing at the Presidential end of year party infront of the first lady Chantal Biya. This deluge has been due to the ongoing Anglophone struggle which the people think he was supposed to be part of the resistance and a voice of change.

Worth-noting, Magasco has been one of the celebrities who has been sending out positive messages for a peaceful protest and advocating for the Anglophone cry to be heard. 

The artist took to social media to express his deep commitment for the peaceful struggle and apologizes to the people who feel hurt by his action ; dinning and merrying with the regime. To some , Magasco is a two-timer or traitor.  

In defence to the rhetoric,  Magasco said some of such contracts are signed 8 months before and he couldn’t do otherwise. He remains committed to the Anglophone struggle.

However, some fans can’t take this criticism on Magasco. To them, he was just doing business.

Gasha posted an apology on Facebook addressed to her former label Stevens.

She expresses deep regrets for the mistakes that let to a severance of ties with the label and pleads for forgiveness. She blames the fact that she had an amateurish knowledge about show business. 

The label signed Gasha in 2013 and made remarkable strides in the music industry with the sultry songstress. She had released groundbreaking hits “Kaki mbere” and “This Life”,  garnered a massive following across Cameroon under the label , winning an AFRIMMA . Things turned stale and she exited. Steven’s management put out an official statement indicating they had an amicable seperation. 

She was immediately substituted by   Daphne after the separation. It’s quite evident that this was a witty move . Daphne seems to be doing so well, she’s been basking in fame and even clinched an AFRIMMA award this year under their management.   

It’s so appropriate for Gasha to apologize. We  however await a statement from Stevens.

Nigerian star Kiss Daniel has shockingly announced on Instagram few hours before the Cameroon Invasion Concert that we won’t be performing. According the “Woju” crooner, the organisers were abortive in meeting up with the terms of the agreement. This is absolutely disappointing to fans who had forgone traveling to Douala for Davido’s concert. Also appalling to budding artists who wanted to light up the stage alongside the Nigerian star.
