Th i s apparently sounds like a fancy tale but it’s quite true.

Bright Phase leader, performer and KORA Awards nominee , Sylva Bright has made a bo ld decision to settl e with upcoming model and activist,  Lislot Ndange.

” I don see ma wife iyo, I don see ma wife iyo eh” .

Love is quite strong. Did I see her name on Sylva’s Facebook page as ” Lysilva’ ? Hmmm! No comment !

Their traditional wedding took place in August and it’s quite confirmed that the Church wedding comes up on December 19th 2010. Our sources confided that star artists  have been invited from Ghana, Nigeria and Burkina Faso to grace the ceremony.

How did this happen so fast ? I hear you saw her on the cover of a  magazine .

”Lislot used to work with IRESCO and a local magazine in Cameroon. She did an anti-AIDS advert campaign on 100% Jeune . Since I was used  to the chief editor of the magazine, Ernest Kanjo, I contacted him and played pranks to get her number from him. She actually thought I wanted to collaborate with her on a project when I started calling her. I was quite fortunate that she had been in love with my style. I scheduled to meet her in Yaounde and everything started from there. She has a learning and positive spirit. We found ourselves compartible. I started nursing plans of spending the rest of my life with her. I finally divulged it to her one day. She sounded like , ‘am too young ‘ . I made her understand that age doesn’t count but maturity counts more. During a friend’s B-day party at OIC Pavillion, Buea, after presenting a gift to the friend, I put a ring in an apple and solemnly proposed marriage to Lislot” . Says Sylva talking to NexDim.

Bam !

Bright Phase

Sylva Bright believes marriage makes him stable , less distracted and  focused. Together with his group , Sylva is also making great efforts to encourage talents in Cameroon through the  ‘Hillside Festival’. If the next edition of KORA Awards takes place in Cameroon, it shall be  thanks to the Bright Phase.

Seven countries have been slated to host the 9th Edition of this competition.  Victoria Nkong Remi, production manager also assistant to the promoter of the Kora awards Ernest Coovi Adjovi has been in  Cameroon for several days to visit the facilities, infrastructure and meet with officials of the Ministry of Culture. She visited the Yaounde Sports Complex and Palais de Congres and concluded both structures can host the Kora awards. ”We must continue to meet our standards, we have a reputation to maintain” .

We  also learned during that press conference that the Buea-based group, Bright phase, representative of Cameroon at the Kora Awards 2010  prompted the organizers of the forthcoming competition to visit Cameroon. Created in 2008, this group of three singers were eliminated in the semi-finals. According to Sylva Bright, Bright Phase leader: “If the Kora Awards is organized in Cameroon, it will help promote local artists, boost tourism and create jobs. ”

Odile Ngaska, president of Socam, evoked the same reasons : “It is a competition that will raise the level of music in Cameroon.”

Is the Kora Awards still credible?

After five years of absence, a smashing start in South Africa, an abortive attempt to relocate to Nigeria and ‘missed out’ in Burkina Faso, the Kora Awards have lost much of its credibility. Established in 1994 in South Africa by the Beninese  Ernest Adjovi, the Kora awards was  first aired in 1996 in 45 countries in Africa, Europe and Asia. They had as aim to boost the image of African music on TV.

At its debut in South Africa, the competition was very famous. Stars like Michael Jackson, Will Smith, Miriam Makeba, and personalities such as Kofi Annan and Bill Clinton have once been invited to witness this event. After ten years, relations between South Africa and Ernest Adjovi deteriorated. The Kora Awards disappeared from the scene. Three years later, the competition was reborn from its ashes and was announced to take place in Lagos, Nigeria in 2008. A few days of the event, the it was canceled.  President of Burkina Faso, Blaise Compaore agreed to host the Kora Awards. Expected to take place in 2009, it finally held in 2010. The evening of April 4 in Ouagadougou was tarnished by the lack of award-winning artists, including the Nigerian duo P-Square (best music from Africa and the Diaspora)  with a million dollars to take home. In addition, the American rapper Akon, who was guest of the evening, did not show up.
