The Cameroonian music scene has  a new diva in the person of  Cristy Sweet born Ndomo Cristelle. After having flirted with hip  hop groups like Natural D.C and danced for heavy weights like K-Tino , the red-haired artist decided to go solo and recently  released her debut album containing huge doses of bikutsi, her favourite rhythm, and hints of  hip-hop , meringue,etc. In the overcrowded Cameroonian music arena, this lady formerly known as Cristy D.C stands out not only by her hair style but also by her intensity. Although she can be considered another quintessential bikutsi artist – i.e who can’t sing without refering to “man and woman” palaver, one kind of falls in love with her style – she uses imagery from popular cartoon characters to sing about what she sings about. Get a listen for yourself, you’ll surely love it.

Ladies seem to have cracked the Bikutsi code more than their male counterparts. Going by the number of women bursting unto to scene this assessment is very true. One of the ladies who has been making waves recently is Coco Argentée. Born Nytem Mekuku Corinne ,the Belgium- based artist  released  ,to much fanfare, her first album entitled “Nostalgie” in 2011. She wrote  and passed the popularity test with electrifying perfromances at Yafe and Caroussel. So much hype greeted her coming  that one question is worth asking ? Is she Bikutsi’s new It girl? Well, if you’re a fan of the usual Bikutsi– heavily couched in  innuendo’s- then this is your girl. But if  you’re looking for something new and fresh, then you better re-shelf  your hopes. This artist is a true student of the K-Tino school of Bikutsi. Controversial lyrics, provocative dancing, 6 minutes + long songs etc. There is nothing special about the artist. Just another one exploiting the public’s immoral penchants. See for yourself.
