The group will henceforth be managed by UK-based promoter Elisa Desbordes-Cisse who also works with Fally Ipupa and Yaya Toure, while Cameroon-based Estelle Ahanda will join their team as publicist.

It all started when producer and Lolhiphop co-founder, Wax Dey stumbled on a YouTube video of the group and declared on his wall that they were so ‘fuckin talented’ and he was ready to put 10 million and more on them.

The post caused quite a stir, drawing attention even from South African media. Talks were soon underway and a deal was concluded.

One part of the duo, Abz stated: ‘Vivid and I set up realm squad to show the world Makossa is Cameroonian and international. We have been trying to move into our own place and focus on making music. In just two days, our plans are already underway – now we’re able to move to our own house in Douala and set up a state-of-the-art studio. Our fans can look forward to a new, re-energised Realm Squad. We’re ready to take over Africa.’

Realm squad is made up of Abz, who produces their tracks and raps, and Vivid, the singer. They burst into the limelight recently with the hit song ‘Original Makossa’.

Posted In: Afro-pop, Hot Videos, Makossa by The Administrator

Wax Dey has released both the audio and the video of his new single, Makossa. The new song which is a career defining hit for Wax was complemented by a top notch video with great cameo appearances including D’Banj. You will recall that Wax’s last single, Forever featuring Omawumi was released by D’Banj’s DB Records and Lolhiphop.
 
Makossa is a definite club banger and Wax Dey has described it as an ‘underrated genre’ that has contributed immensely to urban music of today all over the world. The music video was shot as part of his Reality TV Show concept, ‘Number One Girl’. The show searches for Cameroonian girls with star power and gives them a platform to express their talents while entertaining the public as they live together and compete against each other. The video will also serve as part of the promotion of the second season of his primetime television show which will start airing next month in Cameroon.
 
The Cameroonian singer and activist who was named as one of Africa’s Top 35 people under 35 in 2014 by Young People in international Affairs (YPIA) due to his creativity and ingenuity recently received in Lagos the AFRIMA Best Collaboration in Africa award plaque for Cocoa Na Chocolate on behalf of ONE, the executive producer of the song and all the artistes that featured in the song including Wax.
 
In 2014, Wax Dey also became the first Cameroonian to appear and perform in the Big Brother Africa house when he visited the Hotshots finalists for an electrifying dinner performance on the eve of the finals.

NEXZIK : Wax Dey – Makossa

Posted In: Afro-pop, Top Songs by The Administrator

Johannesburg, South Africa  –  Cameroonian singer and activist, Wax Dey has officially released a new single, ‘Makossa’, to highlight the influence of this underrated genre in today’s international pop culture, and to call attention to the rise of a new breed of Cameroonian musicians. One of the defining moments of global music has to be the 1972 release of Manu Dibango’s Billboard Hot 100 song, ‘Soul Makossa’ that has been credited with the creation of the international ‘DISCO’ sound.

But Makossa as a genre, characterized by catchy brass sections and bouncy bass riffs that created some of Cameroon’s biggest international stars, has struggled to keep its place in the Cameroonian urban scene. Nonetheless, its impact is still best felt through its contribution to the new African pop sound.

In 2010, Shakira released ‘WakaWaka’, an adaptation of the 1983 Cameroonian classic ‘Zangalewa’ that partly has its roots in this genre. This came at a period when  ‘Naija’ or  Nigerian afrobeats is enjoying a wave of success across the world. It is also undeniable that Makossa has had a deep influence in transforming the ‘Afrobeat’ of Fela Kuti to the ‘Afrobeats’ sounds that have propelled Nigerian artists like Flavour and Iyanya to international superstardom.

At the same time, a wave of Cameroonian musicians mostly from the Anglophone regions of Cameroon, to whom the world had been quite oblivious, has awoken with a new afropop sound that is impossible to ignore. They have also borrowed from Makossa, blending French phrases and their own pidgin Creole that is similar to Nigerian pidgin English.

Thanks to this, Cameroon is witnessing the creation of a brand new, lively urban musical scene that is rich in texture and variety. And the rise of these artists signals a rise in social consciousness of a youth that have for decades been deemed as voiceless – but who are stepping into the limelight with the assurance that their place in the social and cultural fabric of Cameroon, and Africa, can no longer be usurped.
