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.
