JOVI ORDERS SECURITY TO CAST PASCAL OFF HIS SHOW

Posted In: Hip Hop, NEWS by The Administrator

Jovi and Pascal had enjoyed a cordial working relationship under New Bell Music. They severed ties and it’s now getting nastier. Both artists have had bitter exchanges on Twitter and it was evident there was a putrid atmosphere between them. A stale feud that has embarrassed a myriad of New Bell Music fans. 

I’m sure no one on earth ever thought Pascal will ever come near Jovi. 

To the utmost surprise of many, Pascal came to Jovi’s DOMAF concert for reasons we can’t tell.

In the middle of Jovi’s performance, he spots Pascal in the crowd.

He immediately stops his show abruptly and orders Pascal to be chucked out of the show. He call Pascal “Pussy boy”.

This was the height of humiliation. But why did Pascal go there in the first place?

Jovi took the industry by storm in 2012 when he churned out his monster hit “Don 4 kwat”, a tune which was allegedly plagiarised from Red Café’s “Hottest in da hood”. The title is even a witty translation to mboko pidgin.

However, Jovi was ingenious and adroit to embroider highly contextualized and relatable lyrics, painting a picture of our day-to-day lives on thumping beats .

His unique style earned critical acclamation. The “H.I.V” album was phenomenal.
Though Buea-based rapper Dr Kapt had already released a pidgin-infused album tailored for the streets, Jovi brought in a more sizzling ingredient that popularized pidgin rap.
In 2013, when Jovi already thought he was in full possession of the kingdom’s crown , Stanley Enow’s “Hein pere” which is another allegedly plagiarized song (Story for another day) popped up creating a remarkable trend. The song catapulted the image of Cameroon urban music to international spheres clinching an MTV Africa win.
Stanley gained much admiration nationally and it seemed Jovi was no longer basking under the spotlight. Attention was drifting towards Stanley whose guerilla marketing and branding approach and entrepreneural skills changed the rhetorics.
I’m sure Jovi expected Stanley Enow to be loyal and submissive to him. But the “Bayangi Boy” who had conquered the minds of millions of fans, doing huge tours and grabbing lucrative endorsements decided to ignore Jovi.
Then came the feud between the two giants.
Jovi wasn’t actually relegated because he was still doing well with his songs and had gained fidel following .
But his egocentric tendencies proved he wanted to get all the attention and didn’t want to be compared to anyone.
Both artists have different approaches in the game.
Jovi has been building content and sound which he thinks will create an identity for Cameroon music. He has been vocal about those who are not original especially who copy Nigerian style of music. He has not been collaborative nationally and internationally . In essence, if you’re not from his label, Jovi will hardly collaborate with you.
On the international arena, he’s got nothing to show. Jovi even refused to turn up for an MTV award nomination.
He once said he had a song with Wizkid he didn’t release. He’s been spotted with J Martins, produced for Akon but no collabo.
This is the kind of opportunity Stanley won’t let slide away.
Stanley Enow has been more business inclined. He’s been collaborating with African music household names like Sarkodie, Tu Face, Davido, Mr Eazi, Ice Prince, Fally Ipupa, Diamond Platinum etc. His public and media outings have been mindblowing.
Following Stanley Enow’s rise to fame, Jovi has decided to nurture what I consider a personality disorder which has today strained his relationship with other artists like Magasco, KO C, Pascal, Tzy Panchak, Mic Monsta etc.
He’s got a narcissistic personality disorder ; one of several types of personality disorders.
It is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, getting troubled relationships. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
Jovi wants to regarded as a god , to be given exaggerated importance and praises always showered on him as the best, the G.O.A.T etc. Reason why he claims he’s the “Mboko god”.
He’s got an inflated ego that he’ll never want to be bruised. We all know when M.I failed to mention him as one of Africa’s best rappers. Jovi started a whole drama , ranting on Twitter as usual.
Jovi always has a sense of entitlement, requires constant and excessive admiration. He expects to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it.
He’s mostly preoccupied with fantasies about success, brilliance and strength . His supporters are not helping. They are just adding more salt to the injury. Most of them are blind followers. I call them “Blind disciples”. “Mboko gang” admirers and supporters believe they are superior and like their celebrated icon belittle or look down on other artists they perceive as inferior. Jovi constantly gaslights Pascal , calling him names as “Socks seller” and many other hurtful innuendos. He insulted KO. C as a sarkodie copycat.
Jovi picked on Maahlox calling him to apologise meanwhile as a pure narcissist he’ll never apologise to anyone. Good news. Maahlox didn’t apologise.
Jovi’s recent outburst on Tzy Panchak was just a deliberate act to smear the brand of someone who has done alot this year to uncover talents to the admiration of a myriad of fans. Is he just being envious of Tzy Panchak’s speedy growth?
Jovi has criticised Stanley Enow’s show in US for the low turnout and poor venues. He’s now extending same criticism to Tzy Panchak. Can Jovi just mind his business and do hos own shows?
The criticism he hurls on Java Fest is just out of place. This is a festival that is gradually growing and garnering potential. It showcases Cameroon music which to many is laudable.
At this level, we should be commending such efforts and criticising constructively.
His recent derogatory remarks about Tzy Panchak shows he is arrogant or haughty, coming across as conceited and somewhat boastful.


Tzy replied him as being a hater and that’s evident. Even a fan who reached out to Jovi to say artists should be more united was blocked on Twitter by Jovi. Jovi actually blocks anyone thats talks anything negative about him.
He has significant interpersonal problems and easily feels slighted.
He reacts with rage or contempt whenever he is criticised.
Can Jovi just learn to regulate his emotions and behavior. He should learn to be selfless and support the growth of other artists who are not in his clique.
Our industry needs to grow through the practice of unity and mutual love.

In 2017, Pascal severed ties with Jovi’s New Bell Music and later inked a record deal with Strange Kings . He churned out “Paapi” and “Benediction” under the imprint which was a complete swerve from his original style under Jovi’s  mentorship and according to pundits fell short of what people expected from him.   Pascal’s relationship with Strange Kings gradually deteriorated to a level where he was filed a law suit by the label for breaching the contract. 

Things have never been the same since Pascal left New Bell Music.  His popularity and following has gradually dwindled like a candle taper. He incurred huge debts while under Strange Kings and could only regain poise when he dropped “Pikin 4 Sun” EP.  

Pascal has been through a career ordeal and he seems to have learned from his mistakes . 

Sunday , May 5th, the “Check sense” crooner Pascal took to Twitter to declare he misses every second working with Jovi. This has triggered reactions from fans. 

He is now showing respect, remorse , admitting responsibility and trying to make amends with Jovi. 

 

From Jovi’s responses to Pascal’s tweets , he apparently felt hurt by Pascal’s actions and innuendos after he left New Bell Music. His reaction insinuates the fact that Pascal has been claiming creative authorship of the song “Check sense” . Jovi has come out to clarify how the sing came about .

Pascal who appears susceptible has acquiesced to Jovi’s massive influence on his career and showed gratitude for all he’s done for him. 

Jovi is still hurt but willing to let go the past. He has accepted  Pascal’s apology still mentioning him has his best rapper .

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.

As the rift between Jovi and Stanley Enow becomes seismic and near explosion, Afrimma winner Wax Dey

has jumped into the scene offering 5 million frs each to both rappers for whoever releases a better diss song. 

Jovi’s sarcastic reply got me laughing. Jovi rather advises Wax Dey to use his money to help himself by buying views, likes and followers on social media.

Wax Dey reiterates that his offer stands.

The urban music scene has been under turbulence in the past 2 days with abusive and controversial tweets streaming from the ‘Mboko God’ Jovi and he doesn’t show any signs of ending his rants any time soon. Amusing enough, this crazy tweets surfaced just after the Bob Marley Day celebration.

Could he be high on weed or just having fun with his phone ?

Jovi, on Twitter posted derogatory utterances about Stanley Enow calling him a “Wet pussy about to get f**ked’  Magasco ‘ A pig and Pit Bacardi his father”. Damn ! Check below. 

 

 

These harsh insults hurled at these artists has triggered a feud between Jovi and Stanley Enow’s camps while Magasco as usual remains silent.

The Bamenda Boy has rather been posting photos of his show with Booba and Dosseh at the Omnisport stadium in Yaounde like he doesn’t care.

Fans have also been busy judging Jovi’s latest awkward behaviour on social media. 

Albeit Stanley’s silence, his brother and Motherland label head Martin Enow has not taken it lightly. He reacted to Jovi’s tweet by challenging him to come

to Douala in the next 24 hours if he’s man enough. Stanley Enow’s manager Didier Kouamo has also come out to reprimand Jovi.

 

Martin Enow has extended his fury to Jovi’s girlfriend Celine Fotso with torrents of insults. Celine has blocked Martin on Twitter as we report.  Lol.

Jovi later stated that he hopes everyone is being entertained. Is he insinuating the insults were just to erupt a stunt or is Jovi actually serious ? 

Apart frim blogosphere reactions, Salatiel has also reacted to the ongoing feud saying real artists with talents should rather beef in songs not act like ‘Hip hop cry babies’.

Today May 15, Jovi just changed Stanley Enow’s name to ” WET P” and calls his music ‘wack’. He adds that he will never collaborate with the Stanley Enow. 

This is just adding salt to a bleeding wound. His twitter fingers are more active than ever. 

 

What is his reason for throwing shades at the Bayangi Boy ?

It all started on December 27th when “Coller la petite” hit-maker Franko took to Facebook to derogate the winners of MTV Africa Music Awards , presumably the greatest achievement for an artist in Africa. The rapper intimated that there is no financial reward accompanied with the trophy. In a seemingly taunting manner, he earlier on dedicated his “Disque D’or” to the MTV Africa Music Awards.  He made use of the Jovi-coined word “Mongshung” to describe the award. 

Jovi’s new hit “Mongshung”is #1 Hip Hop tune on Trace Urban. 

December 28th,  Stanley Enow , the sole Cameroonian winner of the coveted MTV awards took to Facebook and posted Jovi’s latest tune “Mongshung” commending the song as one of his favorite this year 2016.

This post has astonished a myriad of fans and pundits who have known both rappers as foes. 

Jovi and Stanley Enow have had a rugged relationship in the past characterized by vocal jabs in songs and beefs most often dramatized by social media. Worth-noting, Stanley has always shown respect and utter appreciation for Jovi’s music from day one .

Jovi on his part showed Stanley Enow unflinching support when he was nominated for MTV Africa Music Awards , rallying his fans to vote for him. A stir of happiness and show of approval has moved across social media for Stanley’s move. To some, it’s a show of unity , humility and maturity. 

About 30 minutes after historic post , “Ca sort comme ca sort” rapper Maahlox has come into the scene with a baleful and provocative comment referring to Stanley Enow as an “ass-licker” meaning he is just a brown-nose who is trying to flatter Jovi with an intention of gaining something. From the comments on the post, Maahlox seems  to be enraged. I don’t know why. 

He informs Jovi in an idiomatic manner to tell Stanley to be careful because while trying to go down and lick, the crown might fall from his head. Interesting !

This has been the acme of trouble and heated controversy. It’s quite doubtful why Maahlox will throw such a jab at Stanley Enow. Is he creating a vicious cycle.  Check it below; 

There’s substantial amount of evidence of hatred and proof that Franko and Maahlox are teaming up to devalue Stanley Enow and his achievements.  

However,  in every hip hop game there must be “beefs” to instil interest and buzz. Remember Biggy and 2 Pac, Jay-Z & Nas,  Drake & Meek Mill .

Let’s wait for the next move.

We are Nexdim !
