After initially being highly successful, Macase has been on the decline in recent years. With lead singer Cory absent and Blick Bassy pursuing a rather successful solo career, the group’s decline was considered to have reached its climax. However, the group’s surviving members seem intent on staging a revival, if not a comeback. The group is set to achieve this with a concert on September 21,2012 in Yaounde at the Institut Franco-Camerounais. This new look Macase is a mosaic of both old and new faces who all share a common love for great music. Their new dynamic is themed Nouvelle ecriture musicale. It is true that change is the only constant in life but if this new look doesn’t impress then this might be their THIS IS IT outing.

MACASE: End of the road

Posted In: Art, Culture, NEWS by Nchanji

The slow but steady stream of departures has finally resulted in what every feared:the end of the Cameroonian  success story called Macase.  After close to two decades at the top, the musical group (Kora Nominees 2003) finally split. Following  the departure of figureheads like singers Corry and Blick Bassy, rumour was rife that the end was  in sight.The drop  in the number of get-togethers and the pursuit of  solo carriers by some of the members augured a possible split which has turned out to be true. Although one of the group members,Ruben Binam,has been quoted as saying that the members will still work together even if it isn’t under the Macase banner,this is an unfortunate situation for Cameroonian music which has once again  lost a fine gathering of artistic minds whose talent echoed far beyond Cameroonian and African shores.

The group Macase is back in the music scene after their retreat for some years now. A brand new 13 tracks album dubbed ”Fly Away” is the impressive outcome. This is their second album after ”Etam” which gave the group credibility and international fame.

We however miss the presence of Blick Bassy and Henry Okala.
