According to reports relayed from “Pidgin News” on Equinox TV, Petit Pays’ hard-earned 1 million francs CFA was stolen from his house during the weekend. The Makossa superstar informed the police who immediately arrested and detained the suspect who had less than 100,000 frs in his keeping. Petit Pays ranted bitterly on TV saying he learned of his stolen money from an informant in India. How can someone in India inform him about money stolen in Douala ? . He might just be creating controversy as usual. He however has every reason to be embittered as the money is a result of his hard work. And let’s not forget he’s presently investing on his mansion in Kribi. Turbo ne blague pas avec son argent.
After Sine, Cameroonian Afro-pop duo P-Brodaz are the next from the urban music generation to collaborate with soul-makossa music heavyweight Petit Pays. The tune comes with new dance steps called ‘Kokoriko dance’. Just watch the BTS and don’t forget to leave your comments.
After thrilling fans with hits like ”Koh Koh”, ”Njoka” , Africa Star laureate Sine has resurfaced with a piece of musical wizardry , collaborating with Makossa-soul star ”Rabba Rabbi” Petit Pays on a masterpice titled ”Paple”. The virtuoso collabo is quite significant for the fact that it fuses two musical generations. Sine recently sang for Fomer Presidential First Lady Hillary Clinton in New York. Laudable !
Petit Pays remains the most ubiquitous and controversial Cameroonian public figure. Spotted on Tchop Tchop’s ”JAMBO” clad in ‘kaba” and a visage full of make-up Sunday 5th April , ”Efatta” presented his new album ”Osinlinga” which is a rich influence of soul makossa and gospel. He just unleashed the videos of his terrific tunes ”Ossilinga” and ”Mes jours sont ecrits” . The reason why Petit Pays was dressed in female outfit during the TV show remains unknown.
Ever the news maker, Petit Pays or should I say Effata is at it again. The Cameroonian makossa super star used the just ended “La Grande Nuit du Palais” concert to steal the spotlight from the other performers. The star told the crowd that henceforth he will now go by the name
Effata which means open in Aramean. So, no more “Lawyer for women, le neveu de Jesus” or Rabbi Rabbi. He also said that this is the title of his 12 track – upcoming album due for release in January 2013. Far from being only a name change, this latest declaration can rightly be considered as further confirmation of the artist”s recent born- again leanings which started after he is said to have visited famous T.V. evangelist Prophet T.B. Joshua. This however raises the question of whether he has truly repented or is simply trying to generate some hype. Remember Effata is culled from Mark 7-31.
Cameroonian superstar Petit Pays will be in North America for

Cameroon’s fore entertainer Petit-Pays aka Rabba Rabbi is set to deserve his Number 1 title all over again. According to media reports, the Makossa superstar has bought a 30 hectare piece of land in Dibombari, Littoral region. If the reports are true, this is to enable him build a ranch of Neverland proportions that will be known as Rabbiland. The amusement park will include swimming pools and other attractions. Whether this is just another product from the rumour machine or not, Petit-Pays as one of Cameroon’s most impressive musicians with countless endorsement deals and sold-out concert tours is quite capable of such an undertaking. While wishing the artist all the best with this plan, it is hoped that comparisons between his planned ranch and late Michael’s only end there, if you see what I mean.
The North West Region shall vibrate to an explosive concert at the Congres Hall, Bamenda on the 17 th of August with the official unveil of Prince Perkos’ new LP ”Aleg Ndagala”. Cameroonian mega star Petit Pays shall be thrilling Bamenda with a good doze of tuneful music from his repertoire alongside Prince Perkos from Mexico, Njoreuh and Abakwa funk crooner Wax Dey (SA) from 7 pm . The event shall be hosted by the versatile artist Alenne Menget and powered by Prince Perkos Production.
Makossa queen Grace Decca has hinted that her next musical offering will be gospel. She made this declaration recently while speaking to reporters at the end of a come together between Cameroonian artists and the Minister of Culture. The singer said that in her next album she will be singing for the Lord. She equally said it will be available soon and shall comprise 13 tracks. Whether this declaration means she is now a born again or is simply dedicating an album to God, one cannot tell. However, her declaration puts her in the same group as some Cameroonian artists like Petit-Pays who have been showing signs of a spiritual awakening of some sort. Until the album is released we will never be sure whether the woman who sang “I need some love” now needs God. Whatever the case, this declaration will surely generate some anticipation around the album.
