After failing to satisfy the expectations of many Cameroonians during ‘Gospel Musical 2010”, much has been clarified by the organizers on the GOSPEL MUSICAL Facebook page. Here is an excerpt;

‘A little over a year ago, DRIMP Foundation went out flat to sponsor the promotion of gospel music talents. The first edition ended with the winners being showcased through television stations, concerts and a video and audio album. This costly venture was single-highhandedly sponsored by DRIMP Foundation that was barely a few months old. In fact the venture was going on at the same time as the foundation was being created. Motivated by the passion to help Christian youths to express their god-given abilities, the foundation in excitement spent way over what would be advisable of a young institution that is solely dependent on the savings of the founder. No doubt Gospel Musical could not be run in the following year as was planned.
DSTS (DRIMP Splash Talent Show) is in a way an enlarged vision of Gospel Musical. DRIMP Foundation and Splash Networks founders (Rogers Nforgwei and Cyril Akonteh) found grounds to join their efforts and create a pleasurable mix of entertainment and empowerment of the Cameroonian youth and their community of origin.
In DSTS, the talents have been widened to include gospel songs, dance and comedy. We are convinced this will feed the souls of the contestants and the public at large with joyous and exhilarating moments in times where poverty and sicknesses have planted deep sadness and frustrations in both individual and community life.
The prizes to win have been tailored to benefit the individual and their community for the purpose of promoting community care, community service values and spirit of mutual help. DRIMP Foundation’s motto says “together we can lift the world”. While the winner gets cash prize, his community gets donations to the community health centre/hospital and to the community school.
DSTS – the only initiative that offers both the opportunity to have fun and wealth in an impactful fashion”.

Finalists sing at press conference

Finalists of the first edition of GOSPEL MUSICAL finally arrived Yaounde on Sunday 17th. Their programme  commenced on Monday , 20th with a press conference at the SOLOMON TANDENG MUNA FOUNDATION. The press conference was moderated by Ernest Kanjo with the panel constituting Papa T.D Rolland, Achalle Denis, Sylva Bright, Stanley Miki each contributing enormously to the fluidity of the project. Remarkable, was the presence of the President of  Cameroon music corporation, SOCAM, Odile Ngaska who lauded the initiative and efforts of the sponsors, DRIMP Foundation and the talent exhibited by the candidates. She also encouraged youths who have indulged into gospel music as their path and made them understand the value and enrichment in singing for God. Pertinent questions were raised by the different pressmen from CRTV , Christ TV, The Post , STV etc . Questions like the origin of the concept,the sponsorship,the sustainability,and committment were recurrent or iterative. All these questions were wittingly answered by the coordinator, Papa T.D Rolland.
The candidates led by Kora awards nominee, Achalle graced the conference with a soul searching song titled  ‘Our help comes from You’.?

After the press conference, the candidates and the entire team had a brief stop at the bakery to get some fast food . Later, they were cruised to CRTV Mballa II for the ‘MONDAY SHOW’ presented by Rose Epie. The performance was quite electrifying and  embraced by the audience.

Candidates woke up very early today,  5 am . They were introduced to some physical exercises as part of their task coordinated by Uncle T. After breakfast, two very important visits were made to the ostentatious and cossy house inhabited by the 20 candidates. First was the visit of the Vice President of DRIMP foundation, Mrs Nforgwei Delphine with her entourage and later the visit of the president of SOCAM, Odile Ngaska.
The talk they both had with candidates was geared towards uplifting their morals and empowering them to reach out to the world with their voices.

NexDim caught up with Ngafor HANS , who was a member of the jury;

” It’s a beautiful concept which is first of its kind. If you look around the world, 3/4 of  today’s top celebrities and legends have had a gospel background. The call  is therefore for Africa to rise up . This is a great opportunity for the youths to express their vocal ability. We shall select the best with no iota of bias. If this kind of ideas are regularly initiated, gospel music will definitely gain it’s place. Our ultimate motive is to get a vibrant band with beautiful voices who shall find pleasure in making music  for God”

Ngafor Hans (Bassist and music producer)
