Gasha was formerly signed to Stevens music entertainment now home to Daphne , Bot Tag and Shura. The AFRIMMA laureate is yet to regain her poise after severing ties with the label . However, Gasha keeps her composure when questioned on Twitter by a fan why she quit the label . She gave an epic response “Honestly it wasn’t about Stevens , I co-owned the label and we conceived it with love and ambition. I just don’t work well in any environment where my creative process is controlled or defined . I don’t regret my decision , just regret that it went so public causing personal damage.

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.
