Trending Cameroonian Hip hop star Stanley Enow won AFRIMMA Best New comer while Afro-soul sonstress Gasha clinched  AFRIMMA Best Female Artist from Central Africa last Sunday in USA. NexDim says kudos for making Cameroon proud .

But hey ! Stanley keeps watching torrents of  criticism rain on him as he beams with smile  as a trail-blazer in the game.

The ‘Bayangi Boy’ has been  brandishing our flag high but his career is seemingly a subject of massive criticism. Apart from having a nightmare of negative feedback  being slammed on his new single “Njama Njama cow” on Social media , Stanley Enow whose opus  ‘Hein pere’ catapulted him to continental fame last year has been having a bitter pill to swallow after thriving at MTV Music Awards in Durban and the recent AFRIMMA that took place in USA . We are now getting au fait with this saga.

Photo: Congrats to my boos Tiana Gah-Ndo aka Gasha and Stanley Enow on their AFRIMMA Awards for Best Female Central Africa and Best New Comer respectively. I am soo proud of you both. You've worked so hard and now it's time to reap the fruits of your labour. #MyVotesNEVERGoesToWaste. Ebangha Njang where are my pictures? You don enjoy sotey u forget. No try me ehh??

RnB star Banky W was the first to ponder loudly  on the choice of Stanley as the winner for Best New comer at MAMA when he said on Twitter Phyno was the better choice. He later apologized .

Stanley’s win at AFRIMMA has stimulated various moods and caprices on social media. However, some applaud his win.

NexDim was eagle-eyed on the Twitter and Facebook rants concerning the nomination and the win . We throw a spotlight on the most controversial status that ignited comments;

1. Ngwane Hansel is an intellectual comedian and he had this to say on Facebook ;

“Wow. Stanley Enow and Gasha both win at the AFRIMMA 2014 awards. And one of them is talented’.

2. Ebangha Njang is an influential Cameroonian urban music promoter on Social Media based in USA . She had this to spill out ;

Photo: Shout out to ma gurl Tina for winning Best Female Central Africa at the Afrimma Awards tonite... Go Gasha!!! So proud of u although foolish no go leave u lol Tiana Gah-Ndo

Gasha and Ebangha Njang

“So since Saturday evening I’ve been reading so many negative tweets & updates on Twitter & Facebook respectively… Yes at the Afrimma Awards, African artists making the buzz this year were nominated. U never heard Ugandans asking y Eddy Kenzo was nominated & not the other ones, or Nigerians asking y Davido and Iyanya were nominated and not Ice Prince or Dbanj, or Tanzanians wondering y Diamond Platinumz was nominated too etc… Nooo it’s always Cameroonians, but they forget that to make it in the music industry these days ain’t abt talent anymore, talent is like 10% of it. There are more talented artists in America than Rihanna, Lil Wayne or even Britney Spears, but it ain’t abt all dat. It’s abt hardwork, positive attitude, good management, business mind, faking it to make it and being humble!!! Y’all keep asking y this person was nominated and not the other, next year the same ppl gonna be nominated and still not the others if the drive doesn’t change… we need to stop the hate, the unnecessary controversy and come togeda so Cameroon’s music industry could be amongst the BEST in Africa. It’s show business, not show talent!
PS: this is my opinion and the negative opinions/comments won’t be appreciated. Write dem on ur wall, dis is my wall!!”
