Our Queen of Bamenda Naomi Achu just bid adieu to spinsterhood. The diva is definitely basking in happiness after tieing the knot with handsome Nigerian-born Dayo Chiedozie Akinwande in Maryland, USA. The wedding was filled with lots of love and incredible chemistry. Music pundits hurled criticism on beautiful Naomi Achu when the rapper/singer dropped ”Suga” which evidently had lyrics in Yoruba. The ambiguity is now cleared as we can deduce the fact that she was already in a relationship with Dayo. Collaborative couple indeed ! If na you? . Aesthetic, luxe and chic, the event was simply exhilarating. NexDim wishes you a happy matrimonial life and God bless you.

Enjoy some breath-taking excerpts of the wedding.

naomiWhen you are the hottest girl in town, why settle for only one beau when you can have them all? That is the idea behind Naomi Achu’s heavy-hitting latest video for the track “Suga”. “I wanted a fun theme, so we played the boys,” explained the DC-based award winning femcee, who ditches her girls during dance rehearsal for a hot date with DJ Don’t Jealous me, as the clip opens. From a helicopter ride to promenading on the beach, Naomi is the man-eater with an insatiable appetite for sexy guys and even sexier outfits. In every scene, Achu sports the most fabulous pieces, making a fashion statement each time. When delivering her verses between the tagged-up walls, Naomi keeps it ghetto fab with a small faux fur sleeveless jacket, tight jean knee shorts, yellow ankle boots and side studded shades to die for. She later meets her girls at the club

where she dazzles in her favorite sexy custom-made dress with sparkly

embellishment around the chest. It is all fun games throughout the clip until Naomi gets busted while laying on one of her oga’s lap. A four men brawl follows until uncle Shoboy comes to the rescue in time before the end.

Naomi Achu gives mad props to her entire hardworking team. DMV’s leading directing duo Wale and Jeff created the creative video after 2 months of taping and editing. Celebrity publicist Hadja Kobele Keita was the behind the scenes consultant during the shoots. Naomi is also in awe of the men acting as her dates, “Each of my male dates fit into their date scenes pretty well. Don’t Jealous Me looked great in his truck, Femi was awesome in the helicopter, Psean was the best gentleman on the beach and Dayo rocked the golf course scene.”

Today, Wednesday February 27 marks the official release of the video “Suga” on online platforms. Fans will appreciate the uniqueness of every scene and won’t get enough of Naomi’s energetic and captivating performance. Watch out for more from Naomi Achu on

She ha

s already dropped her signature song, with “Killing Me.” And now Myra Maimoh is back with a remix, recruiting fellow songstress Naomi Achu for the ride. In “Killing Me (Remix),” Hitsmiths’s serene and soulful soundscape of claps and piano notes are accentuated by E. Clyde Entertainments” video interpretation. Myra’s soothing lyrics of strength from perseverance are given fiery edge by Naomi verses of blistering defiance.

From an early age, Myra Maimoh has always been drawn to music. Starting off with her mother’s diverse collection of records, she was already singing and dancing by the age of 3. By the time Myra was 18 she was already a veteran in songwriting, performing and musical band management. Her solid background in the performing arts culminated in Answer’d Me; an 11-track LP masterminded with producer/writer/engineer Halle that yielded the “Killing Me” track.

The background of Naomi Achu is no less impressive—with songwriting and performing that also started at an early age. After garnering experience from leading choirs and providing back-up singing, Naomi released her first full length album Positive Energy, which features the popular hit “Alhadji,” in 2011.

“Killing Me (Remix)” is a true collaboration of two of Cameroon’s finest. It sends a powerful message of strength and vindication through perseverance and hard work to the top.These two Afro-divas are telling the world that nothing or no one will hold them back or down.It is as much a message of their lives, as it is a message for everyone out there trying to make it in life.

The song is a “must-include” on your Christmas holiday playlist. You can download it for FREE from :

Listen and dance to it from youtube :–NIgY9RDxU

It”s the glitteri

ng shortcut. It”s the easiest way in but as with all compromises the price to pay is just not worth it. While others have taken the rise and rise of the Nigerian entertainment industry as a challenge, an unsaid call to greater excellence from all of us Africans, others have go it all wrong. Thus it is now unfortunately and increasingly common to watch a Cameroonian film and ingest a Nigerian experience. This Naija wannabism hitherto observable only in Cameroonian Films has now creeped into Cameroonian music expression. And we must raise a red flag because our artists are our face and voice on the world music scene, if they look and sound like others then we don”t exist although we are. After Dencia advertently or inadvertently set the pace, here comes the lovely Naomi Achu singing in not Mankon, Bayinki, Ewondo but YORUBA. The track is titled “Wa fu mi suga” and is her latest release. Come on people. Reactions in denial will surely come on the heels of this post. But it is loudly blatantly self-evident : the goal is to sneak if not get into the good graces of Naija folk. Forget about the sad pandering that this act is, forget the denial of self. What does this say of an artist”s belief in his or her music”s power to go past glass ceilings? Not much except a lack of that belief. At a certain point, this ism betrays a complex which shoudn”t exist. It also further betrays a great misconception that has overrun many young Cameroonian artists: to get a smash hit, you need to do Naija. No, NO and NO. To get a continental smash hit, you need a sound which Africans want, and this sound isn”t the preserve of Naija. It is a human trait, it a Cameroonian trait. You just need to search and you will find it. By the way, don”t artists have to represent their hood?

After a thrilling performance last summer at the prestigious Cameroon Entertainment Awards (CEA) where she received the award for Best Female Artist,  singer, rapper and songwriter Naomi Achu brings sexy back with her new single “Wa Fun Mi Suga.”  The song will premiere on Saturday Oct 6th, 2012 through the massive support of radio stations and online platforms worldwide. Furthermore, in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, fans will enjoy a party night with Naomi including the exclusive play of the new hit song at Muse Lounge located at 717 16th Street.

“Wa Fun Mi Suga,” which means “Come and give me sugar” in Yoruba, is the first single off Naomi’s upcoming album scheduled for 2013. Lyrically Naomi plays the flirt on a mission to tempt the boys. The song also unwraps African pop culture’s latest topics including a reference to the D’banj and Don

Jazzy break up. Musically  the beat, produced by Cheffy, is unconventional yet alluring and perfectly blends with Naomi’s silvery voice and fierce verses.

Naomi Achu released her first album titled “Positive Energy” in 2011. The diversity and originality of this album captivated the public and critics. Massive international radio and television airplays of her single “Alhadji” scored Naomi a Best Blues/Pop award nomination by the Washington, D.C.-based world Music & Independent Film Festival. The video of the single held the No.1 spot on Afrotainment Channel’s Top 10 program for several weeks. Naomi performed on many stages in the United States, Africa and Europe. She also opened shows for high-profile artists including Fally Ipupa (DR Congo) and Timaya (Nigeria). Naomi’s Best Female Artist award, received recently at the 2012 CEA, is yet another important mark for this international artist on her way to superstardom. Watch out!
