“The Anglophone Cameroon Music Industry is pregnant…”

Recently someone tweeted the above blog post title “The Anglophone Cameroonian Music is pregnant…’ and I thought, how apt. OMG! If you have not been following the ‘craze’ that is the Cameroonian Music Industry lately, sit back and relax, let me entertain you. These videos are not in any ranking order but simply the ones I jam to daily.

Someone referred to @DebraDebs on the social network platform Twitter as ‘Cameroon’s answer to Sade Adu…’ I thought that was a compliment. Ms Debra Debs describes this track as ‘ a simple socio-conscious track about Africa, Politics, Development, Poverty and Wealth…’ Plus she made history in Cameroon as the first Cameroonian artist whose video reached 1M YouTube viewers within a month of its release. What an accomplishment!

@StanleyEnow is hot on Cameroon Radio’s airwaves. His début single #Heinpere is a mega hit and his YouTube views are steadily climbing. Stanley Enow claims that “Hein Père is Cameroon’s most trendy Hip-hop track by of all times.” Arguably so I say, however we can’t deny the strength of his Marketing and PR team. Amazing work.

This next song is the soundtrack of my household. My 21-months old can be found mumbling along the beats by his lonesome. Love, love, love! @SteveSlil describes Ebangha as ‘a sultry RnB-Afro Pop tune.’ All I can say is awesome video production and arrangement. You just made Bayangi sound so sexy!

“She say she wanna dance #makossa, she di wind her waist she like mapouka Manchester-based @ImBizu Nino is bringing his own personal twist to the legendary makossa by exposing to a wider audience. Say what you will but before the song is over, you will find yourself humming along to the chorus all day long.

Then there was ADAH. Who is Adah? Couldn’t find a Twitter handle. Is he ADAH SINGS on Facebook? Can his team confirm this to me please? Regardless, I just love his voice and the video… ahh! Me loves! You go boy, and your leading lady is foine!

There you have it, that’s just the a preview. For more on  the Cameroonian music scene… Visit http://nexdimempire.com/  That’s where I get my #Camer musical fix from.
