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.

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 ;

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!!”

The purported severance of ties between Gasha and Stevens Music Entertainment has been fueling heated debates across social media and blogosphere. Recently Gasha released Faya di burn as an independent artist albeit signed to a record label. A post erupted from a sister blog irepcamer.blogspot.com concerning the issue which sparked a wave of controversy: However, the label has come out to clear the putrid air through an official declaration copied from their site . It reads:

May 2nd 2014. We are aware of discussions within social media of the issues between Gasha and her partners at Stevens Music Entertainment (SME). We have up until this point steered clear of responding to the various rumors in the hope that Gasha and SME can resolve their issue amicably and privately.

However a recent post on Gasha’s official FB page is prompting this statement of clarification.
 
  1. Gah-Ndo “Gasha” Ashuembom Amabo known per agreement as the Artist, is still signed to Stevens Music Entertainment (SME) known as Company per agreement. The duration of said contract is being withheld per agreements on confidentiality.
  2. It is a fact that Gasha would like to terminate her contract with SME.
  3. It is also well documented that SME acknowledges this request and has asked Gasha to follow due process to ensure a legally binding separation.
  4. It is also a fact that to this end, SME has presented Gasha with Terms of Separation of Partnership.
  5. It is also a fact that no final terms of separation have been reached between Gasha and SME.
  6. Consequently, it is a fact that Gasha has not met with or signed any separation documents or arrived at any agreement with SME for a “Clean Breakup”. If indeed such a document exists, in all fairness we invite Gasha to produce such a document or name the SME signees to such an agreement.
  7. Gasha is aware (as recently as wednesday April 14th 2014 when she last communicated with SME Rep) that SME is open to discussing separation terms that is mutually beneficial to both parties.
  8. SME will not release terms of the agreement with Gasha and will not get involved in “chit-chat” and rumor mongering on social media.
  9. We at SME believe that contracts are legally binding documents and if the need should arise and the contract needs to come to an early end (like in this case), then the only legal way to end such a contract is the signing of another agreement to end the initial agreement (with each party’s interest at the core of said document).
  10. We believe fervently that cooler heads will prevail and continue to hope that Gasha will entertain dialogue to resolving this issue. The goal being, to reach terms that are mutually beneficial to SME and Gasha.
 
 We will not be releasing any further statements until such a point where we can put out a joint statement announcing  that Gasha and SME have agreed to terms of separation. We look forward to that day soonest and believe agreeing to separation terms is the fair and just approach.
 
Here is wishing the best for Gasha and for SME.
 
SME Management Group.

Just a few weeks back, she quit the Steven’s label, but hey ! , she’s unstoppable. On the heels of successful master-pieces ”Khaki Mbere” and ”This life”, the mellow-voice singer dishes out another melancholic yet thrilling song entitled ”Fire di burn” featuring Magasco. The tune explores the putrid nature of society. She on Saturday 26th launched the official video at ‘American Grafitti’  in Douala. We present to you the though-provoking video directed by the versatile Pazzo.
