Adept Reggae/Dancehall artist Ewube’s management has been incessantly slammed criticisms for their lack of verve in promotion and lacklustre push in taking her career to another height in spite of her talent.

The artist herself has been reprimanded for her style which some pundits think is not relatable in Cameroon which is predominantly French-speaking. In essence they expect Ewube to join the bandwagon in singing in French . However, the team behind Ewube is taking a lane which has been working perfectly good for them . Trust me , the team is resolute and working tirelessly .

Ewube has been growing progressively in unexpected ways .

She’s worked on a huge collaboration she’ll divulge in weeks ahead and  a mouthwatering album . Omega Records is yet to disclose their future plans.

The big news is, apart from her nomination as Best Central African female artist , Ewube was selected amongst 2000 artists-applicants to electrify the stage at AFRIMA 2017 in Lagos this November . This event shall be hosted by superstar Akon and Sophy Aiida.

Ewube’s unmatched talent is undoubtedly a time bomb about to explode . Stay tuned for more information about the biggest Cameroonian diva .

Blu Nation frontline man Tzy Panchak just performed at AFRIMMA 2017 in Dallas , USA as guest. 

Few hours  after the rendition of his hit tunes “Stay with me” and “Mad 4 yur love” at Afrimma which was on playback, “Eposi” , “Clando” hitmaker Blaise B  went on Facebook to throw a shade at artists who do not master live performances , recommending them to work on their voices and stop disgracing Cameroon internationally. He later made allusion of Davido who does well in live performances despite his coarse voice. 

Considering the fact that Tzy Panchak just performed internationally , fans immediately speculated that this jab by Akwandor was targeted at Tzy.

This opened the floodgates of injurious comments by fans towards Blaise B for making such a remark instead of showing love for his fellow 237 artist . 

This is the post by Blaise B below:

Tzy Panchak felt exasperated by this remark and wasted no time to jump on the comment section to attack Blaise B. This is what he says :

Stop disgracing yourself locally Mr Voice lol , Support your own regardless . We come from a country where we struggle so much to achieve. So a lil love from you won’t kill. I love your Front and Back song. Get a positive mindset . Good luck on your AFRIMA nomination . All love bro ” 

Blaise B has replied apologising ,  saying his post wasn’t aimed at Tzy Panchak and he didn’t even know of his performance at AFRIMMA that night . 

He further went live on Facebook to debunk the allegations preaching love for Tzy Panchak’s music. 

It equally seems Blaise B is feeling hurt by Tzy’s statement “Stop disgracing yourself locally”. In the live video on his Facebook page , he promised to henceforth flaunt every achievement of his on social media both locally and internationally. 

However, it could have been a coincidence that Blaise B posted such a remark immediately after Tzy Panchak’ s first international performance. We can’t judge.

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?
