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.

The advent of digital music production has rendered music production affordable and easy. No doubt , our burgeoning music industry has witnessed the sprouting up of a plethora of record labels both major scale and indie scale.
Artists are often lured into inking record deals as this often comes with the splendour of accomplishing their dreams to churn out chart-topping hits, sealing performance deals, bagging endorsements etc . Signing record deals require utter caution and discernment. Don’t get carried by the upfront signing bonuses you receive from the label and think you are already succeeding. That might sometimes be a facade to ensnare your career.
When you get signed, some labels give you an advance fund to buy clothes , your upkeep , rent a house or even buy a car . Don’t be fooled. This money is just part of their investment budget to be recouped when you start selling records, getting performance deals or endorsement. The label takes into consideration all its expenses like promotion fees , recording session payments , video shoot payments and branding. That’s why when an artist is no longer making commercially appealing music, the label gets frustrated .
Anyway, we have exceptional cases where “Ngess men” create labels just to garner fame, get the girls and don’t really care about the profit margin. No stakes .
The failure to gauge the terms of the contract and how it will affect your career is usually a pitfall for many Cameroonian artists .
Most of these deals are signed by artists without consulting a lawyer for professional legal advice and the outcome has been overly ruinous. You get yourself screwed and handcuffed in a dungeon . Getting a legal practitioner is a preemtive tactic against ruthless record label owners .
Some artists are under labels based on friendship without formal contracts under the pretext of “just cam make we di work, we see how e go be ” or some informal pronouncements and engagements.
Over the years, artists have been severing ties with their record labels and we’ve been trying to decipher the reasons for their unprecedented exit .
Signing a deal is quite challenging. You are compelled to write hit songs, sometimes your creative direction is swerved .
You hear things like “You have to sound a little like Daphne or write the Calee kind of song ” , “Write a song with French lines ” , “I’m not feeling the song at all” etc .
What about doing a song you think is good enough to make a groundbreaking hit and the label decides to keep it in the computer without releasing it for years or you drop a song and it’s not getting any promotion . Quite frustrating for the artist right ?
The phenomenon of labels keeping your song without releasing it has been highly debatable. Artists in EU countries are even proposing the ” use-it-or-lose-it” clause in record deals which means if a label is not making a song available to the public, the label returns the song to the artist.
Most artists fall prey to the whims and caprices of label owners simply because they are ignorant .
Some other artists them di enter shock so, na over sabi.
Before signing a record deal , artists should be aware of some basic elements of a typical recording contract.
– The term of the contract. This simply means how long the contract will last. This is determined by the record label depending on how many albums you’ll be recording. But I’ll advice Artists not to sign for more than one year. Could be renewable. By limiting it to one year, you prevent the label from effectively controlling your life and creative direction for an unreasonable duration . Keep your options open. One never knows the future.
-The territory. This refers to the geographical area the label is allowed to sell your music.
-Exclusivity. This gives the label exclusive right to all the artists recorded performances in video and audio during the term of the contract.
– Artist royalties and mechanical royalties . Artist royalties are paid to the artist for his recorded performances while mechanical royalties are paid to the songwriters/publishers of the songs. Artists need to know that the contract has to specify a certain percentage to be paid to them each time he is booked for a gig or gets an endorsement. These details need to be well spelled out to eschew the embarrassment and injury .
– All Recording , video and promotion costs shall be covered by the label .
Why am I saying all these ?
After signing a deal with Universal Records Africa November 2017, we have witnessed Tenor’s relevance and fame dwindling after he had established a fan lovemark with hits. Locko who also signed to the same label last year is now pining and wanting himself out of the label . He even posted on Facebook a week ago that he’s thinking of quitting music . Infact, label fit give you high blood when you sign blindly .
Glancing through my Facebook timeline , a post of Phillbill decrying exploitation in the music industry caught my attention .
Phillbill is an ace songwriter, producer and singer whom in my humble opinion enormously contributed to the success and bliss Pit Bacardi is currently basking in.
He was supposed to sign a dual contract with different clauses with the label as (Dianee) of Rythmz , the singer and as his alter ego Phillbill , the music producer and songwriter.
In this light , Phillbill was supposed to earn both artist and mechanical royalties from the label.
I’m sure he hasn’t been paid for all the instrumentals he’s been producing for Empire Company till the recent POWER project.
Since a label is normally supposed to pay for all record production costs , I believe Pit Bacardi was to pay Phillbill upfront for every song he produces and pay Kezzy for every song he mixes and masters under the label.
Some record deals turn you into a slave . If you fetish being signed by a label, please be wise.

The Cameroon music ecosystem has gradually become incredibly bankable. Artists now generate a great income flow from digital sales, licensing, live performances, endorsements and merchandising.
However, artists should prioritize creating multiple streams of income
in order not to fall prey of moving from riches to rags . Be smart.
Apparently, the artists that will survive financially when their careers are on the downswing are those that invested in diverse income generating activities.
When some artists start basking in fame, hugely solicited for shows and enjoy the spotlight , they indulge in a lavish , extravagant lifestyle and impulsive spending which creates a deep dent in their finances.
The first bankruptcy I ever learned about as a child was that of MC Hammer, who burned through millions in the wake of the success of “U Can’t Touch This”. Sure, it was a catchy pop hit and the video’s harem trousers were a look, but that wasn’t enough to fund MC Hammer’s rumoured 90-person entourage, $20m mansion (£19m in current terms) and tax payments. In 1996, he owed more than $13m (£12.6m today), while owning about $9m (£8.7m today) in assets.
TLC that sold platinum in the 90’s , 7 times grammy award winner and In da club billboard chart topper 50 cent filed for bankruptcy.
A myriad of makossa artists who saturated the national media outlet crtv and tele podium in the 90s are now languishing in the mire of poverty and destitution after their careers waned.
Our present day celebs are cashing in from their tours and endorsements but trust me if care isn’t taken, they might end up asylum seekers abroad , end up getting married to “oyibo” women , or look for odd jobs to sustain their lives. That’s exactly what’s happening with many makossa artists who made chart-topping hits when the genre was en vogue.
It’s quite apparent that there shall be a time when you will no longer make hits , that moment you feel the gods of hits are against you. You shall see the money you made dwindle to bankruptcy and you get back to zero . Getting bankrupt is a pitfall in an artist’s life. Create multiple streams of income.
The Cameroon music industry hasn’t a well established copyright structure where artists can amass huge profit from royalties even when they ain’t making hits. The defunct SOCAM to present day OGC created in 2017, have shown no salient results .
In Nigeria, the copyright society COSON ensures artists reap their royalties .
Alpha Better Records can be lauded for being on the right path.
The record label is bossed by a business-oriented person Salatiel . He has created multiple streams of cash flow that will guarantee the sustainability of his career in the long run. Alpha Better recording studio is great asset.
Mr Leo has established a profitable bar/restaurant business in Buea and other assets that give him absolute financial equilibrium aside his music hustle.
In a Cameroon where the copyright system is marred, be smart and acquire invest your money .

The Urban music industry has experienced a massive boom from 2012 which has seen the likes of artists Jovi, Stanley Enow , Mr Leo, Salatiel, Magasco, Daphne, Tenor etc take the spotlight. Their hits made a tremendous impact in the English-speaking regions , enjoying massive rotation in nightclubs, snack bars and pubs.

This frenzy has unfortunately petered out due to the ongoing socio-political crisis rocking the Northwest and Southwest regions.
Why do songs released nowadays have an overly short lifespan or even go unheard ?
An eagle-eyed analysis of the present ecosystem has pertinent points we may have to consider.
It’s quite evident that songs released from the wake of the Anglophone crisis till now have an ephemeral life-span. I’ve been trying to decipher some factors that dwindle the life span of songs during these turbulent times.
The outbreak of the Anglophone crisis since 2016 has had a negative repercussion on the urban music ecosystem which explains why songs released by artists during this crisis that can be rated as potential hits or propitious end up in the recycle bin in a very short time. The reason is because the conventional circulation of music has been impaired.
How music circulated

The salient role of DJs:
Nightclub, pub and snack bar Djs played a pivotal role in the proliferation of newly released music. The phenomenon of DJs putting out playlists which are usually constantly on rotation during night time handouts has been thwarted. Administrative curfews imposed on nightclubs and snack bars have just helped to kill the enthusiasm of DJs to continue churning out these mixes. 

 Djs usually mash up mixes of songs on the mainstream which are relayed to road-side pirates who use their laptops or computers to transfer music to phones , ipads , usb keys, and other musical gadgets. And that’s the trick. The primary method of circulating music was bootleg. 

These roadside music bootleggers also make their collections based on what was trending. They are now suffering from collateral damage . 
Their role of circulating music has been rendered difficult due to the curfew imposed on nightclubs, snacks etc. These are hubs where people got music and circulated phone to phone, phone to laptop etc . 
Artists have been ensnared by this crisis. Most of these villages and towns that kept music alive have fled to bushes and they currently don’t even care about what is trending. Their old playlists in their phones are okay . Their plights are more bothersome.

Imagine how many DJs and roadside music distributors have abandoned their jobs and fled due to insecurity.
Some Anglophone artists had undermined the role , value and contribution of these people to the music subsistence process. Trust me, songs released now don’t reach their full potentials. I imagine how big songs like “Casanova” by Stanley Enow, Magasco’s “Sokoto”, Awu “Sidomina” would have been in these regions without the crisis. Ambe’s “Vitesse” was peaking considerably and trust me the song would have been bigger without the crisis. Ambe would have pocketed more money from that tune. 

Bloggers play a very important part in creating buzz about a song and influencing people to download digitally.  But there exists a plethora of people who are not online-friendly , don’t even know how to go about downloading music from blogs. 

These category of people solely rely on roadside music distributors. That’s a majority according to statistics. 
Another method of getting your music heard is through tours and concerts. With the current insurgency plaguing our regions , it is quite difficult to organise concerts and events especially during the night hours.
This has impaired artists from placing a love-mark on their songs through performances .

Very few music events have taken place from December 2017 to present. Artists who relied heavily on gigs in these regions are now sinking in the mire.

Gasha came to the limelight in 2013 after releasing an effectual debut single “Kaki Mbere” followed by “This life” produced by Pazzo in 2014.
Her unique and unmatched vocal timbre, esoteric genre of music and enthralling soul delivery catapulted her to the pedestal of top class artists in the urban music industry. Gasha established a love-mark , garnered huge fan following across Africa and even clinched an AFRIMMA win for Best Female artist in Central Africa in 2014. In 2015, she released “Chill” with Eddy Kenzo who was one of Africa’s trendiest artists at that time after releasing ‘Sitya loss’. All these achievements on Gasha.

In 2016 , Gasha traveled to USA hunting for greater success and exploits but it seemed this adventure didn’t work for her as planned. While in US , she released “Champion’ and later dropped a video of a remixed version of “This life” featuring rapper Law G which made meagre or no impact .
Gasha had parted ways with her former label Steven’s ME and was substituted with a young talented songstress called Daphne from Buea-based record label No Hits No Records . Things started falling apart for Gasha. She started craving for a rebound.
In 2016 , the Cameroon music market space experienced an unprecedented change and the growth was fast-paced for Gasha to catch up and rebuild that lost love-mark and trust from fans.

Gasha probably needed a song that could fit into the present trend in a bid to lure music pundits and fans to get back on her rail.

While she was absent from the scene, other female artists had taken the top spots like Daphne, Blanche Bailly, Ewube, Reniss, Mimie, etc and their style of music was ‘en vogue’ .  Maybe she was ” too late Hewitt” .

Gasha resurfaced with “We Still dey” featuring Nabil in 2017 which couldn’t convince the ear buds of her music fans.
Gasha has been adopting the blue ocean strategy of creating an uncontested market space to make competition irrelevant which is not working out for her. The indie pop, soul and jazz melange is not currently captivating fans anymore in Cameroon.
With the present state, the Cameroon music industry has a saturated market share bloodied by competition . For Gasha to get back on track, she needs to be commercially competitive with her style of music .
“Back to life” is a new tune under her self-owned Dule’Gasha imprint .

Is this really going to bring her back to life ? Watch below !

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 !

Album Review
Barely a year since the release of her 2ndAlbum, Cameroonian Gospel Recording sensation Anita has released her 3rd album entitled “Purify Me”. Anita has emerged as one of the most celebrated voices in theCameroon gospel music scene with her ability to give her fans pure anointing wrapped in amazing vocals. She has been true to her cultural background yet remaining relevant and current in her use of today’s most vibrant styles of African praise and worship.
This is a 12 track Album that showcases Anita’s vocal prowess in a fresh and powerful way that raises the bar yet again. She successfully delivers an anointing that reveals spiritual growth and time well spent in the throne room since her last Album in 2014.
The Album opens up with a captivating track “My God is Good” which has been very well received by fans since the release of the single. This song combines Afropop, Makossa and Ndombolo music genres very prevalent in modern African music.

This album has enough for all her fans; if you enjoyed songs such as “Sawa Medley” and “Village Medley” from her 2014 album, you will adore “Loba Mosoma’  and “My God is good” in this album. If you prefer the contemporary Christian style of music which was prevalent in her debut album from 2007, then there will be plenty for you in this album with titles such as “I Cry” and “As Jesus Walks By”. In a true “Hillsong style, Anita serves you “Jesus Messiah”, a song that will effortlessly take you into an atmosphere of worship.

 The artist reveals her musical heritage from her days with the top British Gospel group Remission with the song “Caribbean Medley”. This is an album that you can equally use in your private worship time or at all your social events; you can praise dance or you can listen prayerfully and be lead by Anita’s dulcet tones into the presence of the King!

Anita’s Inspiration
My first inspiration is the Lord Jesus; as a gospel singer I believe that I was called into ministry by the Lord and for me it is all about how I can allow the Holy Spirit to use me to impact a life for Jesus. I therefore do a lot of one on one ministry outside of my singing.
I am also inspired by the needs of people around me to respond in a number of ways:
       write song lyrics that speak to everyday issues that people face
       I am a prayer warrior, an intercessor, a front line soldier in the army of the Lord. I get many calls for prayer by people facing all kinds of problems such as marital issues, difficult children, family issues, gossip, financial issues and so on
       I provide Christian counseling and teaching to those who reach out to me with their problems. I use the word of God to help them handle their problems and build their character. Although I pray for people I believe that prayer alone causes them to be dependent on the minister so counseling and teaching from the work equips them to handle things better as they mature spiritually.
Some singers who inspire me are Cece Winans, Bebe Winans, Hillsong Australia
  1. Some ministers who inspire me are my spiritual father Pastor Charles Eseme Enaw, Pastor Dr Stella Immanuel of FirePower Ministries, Pastor Francis Mwale

Hip Hop feud or beef is a controversy in which rappers defame or confront each other induced by competition. Rappers often incorporate stylistic speeches boasting about their skills , riches, achievement and criticising their rivals like the Tu Pac vs B.I.G beef, Jay Z vs Nas 2001 diss , Benzino vs Eminem and Lil Kim vs Nicki Minaj.

Feuds are sometimes generated by rivals throwing insults or derogatory statements on social media like the Wizkid vs Davido diss. Feuds have sometimes been blown out of proportion and gets brutal offstage like the Tu Pac vs BIG beef which resulted in massive shootings.

However,  It’s quite unavoidable to experience feuds in an industry which is gradually getting the spotlight. Cameroon is therefore not an exception. It’s the game.  Where there is competition, there is is bound to be a battle for supremacy.

Award winning rapper  and Guinness #Madeofblack ambassador Stanley took to Twitter saying ” I’m made of black but you are made of weed, get a life son”. He didn’t mention any name but there’s massive speculation that he is making reference to “Cash ” crooner Jovi.
There’s no gain saying that Jovi considerably influenced the present hip hop trend in Cameroon after his solid tune “Don 4 kwat”. He deserves enormous respect for the credit. Jovi has been at the top of the game, basking in fame after dropping a well-acclaimed debut album which had the participation of other acts like Magasco, Mr Elad, Deecy and Reniss. Jovi made us discover new talents and proved to be someone who could lead the industry positively. He proved to be a man who believes in creativity and dexterity. Jovi’s rise created a sterling impact on the cultural and creativity perspectives.
Stanley Enow’s monster hit “Hein pére ” was phenomenal. The song transformed the industry into an award-worthy industry , an industry with the potentials of clinching endorsements and crossing the boundaries for artistic collaboration. Indeed Cameroon was on the map.

Each of the aforementioned artists has contributed in different ways to establish a credible movement.
Jovi endorsed Stanley Enow when he dropped “Hein pére ” video and even supported the #Vote for Stanley Enow MAMA campaign .
Stanley on his part shared Jovi’s “Bastard ” video on his wall upon release. Initially both artists have been supportive of each other.
It seems the relationship turned sour immediately Stanley Enow grabbed the prestigious MTV awards . Comparison between both artists has been fueled by social media posts , comments and media feeds. It’s now getting stale. The famous Celine Fotso article was just salt in the wound.
But how can we be so sure Stanley is making reference to Jovi ? .
It might be like the Wizkid vs Davido beef. When Wizkid mentioned on Twitter that he does big shows at big venues, Davido became exhilarated saying Wizkid should pull half of his crowd before saying shit…lol. Wizkid later refuted that the statement was not directed to Davido.
Actually, “weed” is consumed by many rappers. In essence, we can’t judge from the premises. Stanley Enow might equally be referring to someone else. I think it’s the reason why Jovi has not responded.
Is the beef actually fueled by social media feeds?
