NexDim visited Bamenda last weekend with the objective of discovering how the entertainment industry operates there and listen to the plights of the emerging artists . We took a tour around studios like Ceejay Productions, CBS Studios, Bahood Studios , caught up with artists like Maxim Winner, Natty Blink, Leadsman, and many more, and producers like DJ 2LE, Jerry Berson and Speedy . Wow ! We were quite impressed with what we saw.
One of the biggest act from Bamenda is Ankias Vallyman.
After “Africa Oneness”, which advocates the unity of African countries, Ankias Vallyman, the Bamenda-based reggae artist, recently released a second album, “Die for Africa.” The album is a mixture of soul, jazz, reggae and african traditional rhythms. The lyrics written and composed by Ankias, highlight daily issues like corruption, hard work, perseverance, HIV/AIDS, etc.
