African music heavyweights Cameroonian bikutsi diva Lady Ponce and Congolese King of Rumba Koffi Olomide have collaborated on a mind-blowing song titled DEVINE. The song has been enjoying massive airplay on Trace Africa after official release .
The ‘secouer secouer’ diva Lady Ponce has a great verve for fashion , beauty and style, quite evident in the way she clads in her music videos and public outing . The bikutsi queen has decided to venture into fashion and cosmetic biz. She just inaugurated her own fashion shop in Bastos ,Yaounde . ”PONCE ORIGINAL FASHION” is the name given to her new fashion outfit. Rumours say this huge investment has been realised with the help of her husband. This will definitely be a great boost in her show business career.
Lady Poncehas been busy working on interesting projects across
the world. She recently rallied international stars
Manu Dibango, American singer Truth Hurts, Djibril Cisse, and Shaniz on a breath-taking song titled “”We are the champions””.This single is off the impending “”YES WE CAN”” compilation . Listen to the short version of the song and visit https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/we-… for the full version. Lady Ponce proves her versatility on this song with a bikutsi intonation. “”Ma ding wa”
making headlines for all the wrongs reasons unfortunately. In fact, the Bikutsi star is alleged to have been arrested and detained in Yaounde due to her supposed involvement in human sex organ trafficking. Other reports however followed to contend that these stories are baseless and untrue. Her manager has been quoted as saying that the artist is in Paris to shoot a video with big names like Manu Dibango and others. Stories like these, whether true or not, are surely not good for anybody”s reputation at a time when we are witnessing an increase in crimes with ritualistic undertones. “Wouna leave Lady Ponce yee name for dang”. Innocent until
ing now amongst many with the nomination of four Cameroonian artists in 03 categories for the prestigious pan-African Kora Awards, 2012 edition, billed for Cote d’Ivoire this year. Sultry singer Charlotte Dipanda and Bikutsi waist – winding goddess Lady Ponce have both been nominated in the Best female Central African artist category for their tracks “Coucou” and “Secouer secouer” respectively. Boyband X Maleya have on their part been nominated in the best African group category for “Tchokolo” and N’Lauretta has received a nod in the best female gospel artist category for her track “Hommage à Jesus”. Before you start criticising and saying who and who are not present, it is worth pointing out that only tracks released between May 1 2o11 and October 10 2012 were considered. Forget not too, only 144 artists and groups were selected out the 400 t0 500 files received. So maybe the artist(s) you are rooting for is in the rejected lot. What ever the case, a lot of hype and visibility are needed for an artist to be taken note of and nominated. The award ceremony will take place on December 29, 2012 at Hotel Ivoire in Abidjan. Cameroonians should vote and vote if they want our colours to fly boldly in Cote d’Ivoire come award day. Congrates to our four nominees and courage to the disappointed. Who amongst all these Cameroonian nominees return with a Kora award like Macase in 2003?
“La ponceuse” as she is fondly called is locked in a quarrel with the agency in charge of managing musicians’ copyrightSOCAM. The feud started after the agency slammed the singer with an official warning as well as a 1 millionfrancs c.f.a fine for allegedly making disparaging comments against the agency during an interview. As a matter of fact, the artists is quoted as having said SOCAM wasn’t treating artists any better than its predecessor C.M.C and that it wasn’t going to be recognised by international bodies in charge of managing artists’ copyright like SACEM. These alledged comments were viewed by SOCAM hierachy as a violation of section 53 of its statutes which prohibits its members from making declarations that might taint the agency’s reputation. This position is however challenged by Lady Ponce whose lawyer organised a press conference recently in Yaounde. During this meeting with pressmen, Barrister Ndongo Christian Patrick said the sanction meted to his client was tainted with serious violations of Cameroonian law. The legal mind hinged his case on the section 54 of SOCAM statutes which says when a violation is committed the accused is summoned to defend his/herself. If the time lapse expires, one of the sanctions can be meted but his client received both sanctions. Knowing the perennial nature of most legal disputes,we must say this could only be the first round of a long process. Goodluck to both parties et “que la vérité triomphe“. Lady Ponce won’t give a cool million “cadeau”.
Party people will have to wait. The first edition of the Planet Star Video Music Awards that was slated for March 14 has been postponed to March 21 same place same time. According to a press release cited by some media outlets, the organiser blames this postponement to the unavailability of most of the artists to take part in the event. So, all those who prepared their outfits should simply store them in a cold dry place, the event will take place come March 21,2012. LadyPonce and Ama Pierrot are going to be patrons of the event.
Bikutsi queen Lady Ponce is decidedly bent on making her musical presence felt this year. She has just released another video “Secouer -Secouer” featuring D.J Manu Killer.

This latest video includes a special guest appearance from Koppo who plays a limousine- riding guy who picks up skinny and thinly-clad girls for partying.
