djDijay Chuucss is apparently fed up

with concocting hits for others while he remains

in the studio, far from the spotlight. Much in line with his plans for the release of his maiden album, here is the first track off his “Take a leaf like a leafalbum. It is titledLacho for ma endand features Krotal and Ayriq Akam. You could say rightly say it”s too experimental but what did you expect from a music producer. He sleeps, breaths and eats beats. Take a listen first.

Cameroon’s got talent. That’s what we keep saying and that’s we at nexdimempire want the world to see. Two of Cameroon’s most promising music  stars Teety Tezano and Danielle Eog (who featuerd alongside Krotal in the song “Je wanda“) have teamed up for a song titled “Hold on sister”. I don’t know about you but just from the bits I’ve listened to this far, it’s pure gold especially if you’re a fan of soul. A slice of soul seasoned with hints of blues – this dish is called great music.  In this song, the two ladies sound like Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill. I can ‘t wait for the  video which has apparently been shot already. Cameroon forward ever, forward only. Take a sneak listen and tell you’re not impressed if you’re a connoisseur. May God grease their vocals so they can always sound this great. Most Cameroonians unfortunately don’t listen to this kind of music. Tant pis pour eux.

  “U make me wanna say” is another release from Teety Tezano whom we recently featured in our columns . If one youtube video is anything to go by then the video for this song is in the making or will be released soon. The youtube video thats pushes one to make this assertion is entitled “Teety Tezano preparatifs clip U make me wanna”. While we love the lady who has been generating much hype recently by featuring alongside side major Cameroonian urban music moguls like Krotal and composing a theme song for an ad we must say this song is rather stale. It lacks a certain “je ne sais quoi” to make it a hit or appeal to a wide if any audience at all. If you must disagree first listen to the song which we have fetched and posted here for you.

Just as we promised last week, here is the video of Krotal‘s latest release “la -bas”. The Yaounde- based rapper is joined by Teety Tezano who we recently  featured here on Nexdimempire . Cameroonian-born French rapper Pit Baccardi equally answers present. The video  is another  Feb 16th masterpiece. This song is a prelude to Krotal‘s upcoming album that is due for release on Youth day, February 11. The pretty girls and video quality do give the song some punch although I humbly must confess it is not Krotal’s best work yet. See for yourselves.

Looking at Teety Tezano one can only concur that talent is hereditary. She is the daughter of legendary Cameroonian musician Johnny Tezano and is walking in her fathers’ footsteps. Seeing  his daughter’s  love for music,her father offered her a piano after she completed primary education and she has been horning her skills ever since. She released her first single “Super girl“in 2006 which was an instant hit. In 2008, her budding talent caught national attention when she and her group “Kat Girls” were named best Cameroonian hip-hop revelation during “Couleurs Urbaines”. She earned another accolade in 2011 when her song ‘Unstoppable” was used by a mobile communication company for one of its ads. Her music is a brilliant mélange of soul, r’n’b, folklore, reggae and Congolese rumba. She recently featured in the shoot for Krotal’s “La-bas” video. With her sights set on musically acclaim,we can only wish this Cameroonian sweetheart all the hits talent can offer. Below is a sneak peek at her “Super girl” video.

Cameroonian hip-hop guru Krotal is brewing another smash hit. The shooting of the video for his song “La bas” wrapped recently and should be  a must-see given the name of the director: Febraury 16th whose name is now synonymous with top-quality videos. The making- of  leaves one eager to see the final product. With lights,babes,heavy beats and input from another rap heavyweight Pit Bacardi, this latest Krotal project is sure going to rush straight to the top to the charts upon release. Get a sneak preview at what went down during shooting.

Just like other aspects of the African social construct,urban music ,precisely hiphop,has been trying to make a place for itself under the African sky.After the initial ferocious resistance it encountered from elders, some people thought it wise , for easy acceptability, to africanise it  by dubbing it Afro-hip hop. Now, let’s be clear this naming was both automatic in a way, an african doing hiphop would automatically call it ”Afro-hip hop”. But that’s not the issue.What then is the issue?

What makes hiphop in Africa, and by ricochet Cameroon, deserve the appellation afro-hiphop? Is it because the ambassadors of this genre are all African ,are in Africa,use African languages or paint African pictures ?

The answer is certainly not easy. But some one humbly submits here that it is a misnomer because the chunk of these artists don’t sing in African languages.They may well live in Africa but most dream of sneaking away.They sing of bling and jets whereas we live in tins and ride in “bendskins and opeps” .

Hip hop as a movement has evolved alongside culture. It’s proponents have dug from their culture to define and refine it. Afro-hip hop ,on its part, has generally not been fueled by African culture. In the music of the noisiest afro-hiphop artists, African rhythms,whose presence should justify and underpin the appellation afro-hip hop, are faint if not absent.We are thus compelled to listen to unsuccessful attempts at copying Lil Wayne’s latest beats .Very few afro-

hiphop artists have justified the existence and use of this appellation.They have given it credibility by injecting generous doses of african rhythms into their music.The africanness in their hip hop is blatant and waltzes beautifully alongside American hip hop beats.

Take Krotal’s hit “Vert,rouge,jaune” for example, listen to the bikutsi touch therein through the drums. Hip hop in Africa has a credibility issue because it wants a distinct identity from its parent, American hip hop.That is not a bad thing but to have such a privilege, the artists have to be more than copycats. Afro should drip from all aspects of their hip hop. By the way, African artists do reggae but I’ve never or hardly heard the expression afro-reggae, hope you catch  my drift.
