Socio-political crisis: the artists' solution for a way out of the crisis

Image
Cameroonians receptive to this incessant desire for peace? It is still very difficult to answer this question. But if we look at the recent events in the northwest and southwest, it is clear that the decibels of reconciliation do not produce the effect hoped for by these singers of the peace. But the collective "Stand for peace" does not claim to be able to settle definitively the problems that cross Cameroon, according to the artists who make up this movement, it "is not to passively suffer the events, but to try to bring as a Cameroonian, his stone to the construction of a dynamic of reconciliation " According to our colleagues in Repères en Kiosque this Wednesday, May 22, 2019, the collective "Stand for peace" is an initiative of music producer Georges Williams Betoka. According to the latter it is a "response by artists to the problems facing Cameroon, including the Anglophone crisis and hate speech that are of worrying proportions in social ne…

New Music: Daddy Black ft BlueJay Kings ft Simplice Guitar- Mama

Image
To humanity, motherhood is the pit into which the pillars of essence are cast. To us Africans, it is essence itself in its sacred entity. While everything remains remarkably beautiful about its production, composition and engineering, this brand new banger from "Daddy Black "in collaboration with
"BlueJay Kings" and "Simplice Guitar" , produced by" Blue Jizus" mixed and mastered
by" Elad Denis", simply slabs the fact that one's relationship with their mother can never be erstwhile. No matter her walk in life, your mother will always be someone to qualify as the throb in your heartbeat. That is natural, which makes the use of live bass guitar by "Darry Bass" rhythm and solo guitar by "Simplice Guitar" , in the song more vital and meaningful. Click below to enjoy:

Words We Became Familiar with Due to the Anglophone Crisis

Image
The ongoing Anglophone crisis orchestrated by teachers and lawyers of the Anglophone regions has place Cameroon in a quagmire. In November 2016, teachers and lawyers complained about marginalization and the forceful use of French Language in their classrooms.

They did so in a series of street protest which later ended up with police brutality and hostility.  The street protest has morphed into a socio-political crisis, arms conflict between separatist groups and the Biya regime. With separatist demanding for a new nation.

In the course of this crisis which has lasted for about 3 years, we became familiar with these words.

Big G Baba Granted the Go Ahead to Perform at Master's Night Gold Show Yaounde

Image
Yesterday Friday 10th of May was a gloomy day for Big G Baba. There was a controversy on social media about his performance in the forthcoming  Master's Night Gold Show in Yaounde this month end.

There was a mixup between Big G's manager and his producer  Dakwas Jr who doubles as CEO and founder of Dakwas Entertainment based in S.A.

''Don’t expect Any performance from Big G Baba in Yaounde this month end at the Master’s Nigth Gold,  planet carrefour Obili Yaounde precisely. His label has not granted him the go-ahead to perform in this forthcoming show'' Dakwas Entertainment Boss made this statement on Facebook yesterday.

Big G Baba is now expected to perform at Master's Night Gold Show in Yaounde this month end.

Is Louis Paul MOTAZE trying too hard to please H. E Paul Biya ?

Image
On May 8th, the online magazine INVESTIR AU CAMEROON, in its article: "SGS Cameroon to implement an automatic wood control system as of June 1, 2018", announced colors not very cheerful for the economy of the country; at least, that's what could be detected between the lines ... In essence, one could understand that the decisions resulting from Motaze would cause more harm than good, because one has the impression that they would stifle the imports / exports which is the economic lung of Cameroon.

How else are we to understand such decisions except that L.P Motaze is driving for his own account? And if it turns out he does it for his personal bank account in defiance of Cameroonians, then we should be seriously worried.

Indeed, there is an agreement with the SGS which takes percentages on each export and it is supposed that Motaze gorges behind in retro-commission. Would Motaze be ready to burn all the respect to the hierarchy just to be the boss's favourite?

Does Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh deserve all the backlash he is getting from the public?

Image
It is clear that Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh enjoys the high confidence of Paul Biya. A controversial alliance, from the look of things. Never in the history of Cameroon, has a Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic been so vilified, slandered, denigrated as Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh. As time goes by, the cabal against Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh increases at breakneck speed, especially after his boss made him Minister of State while keeping him Secretary General of the Presidency on January 4, 2019.

Otherwise said, after the President of the Republic HE Paul BIYA, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh becomes the personality in Cameroon whose name is lugged in the mud, taxis, offices, even chapels and mosques, worse, social networks, not to mention the Radios, newspapers and televisions.

In a radio in the political capital Yaoundé, a host in broadcast exclaims: "It is Ngoh Ngoh who creates traffic jams in the streets of Yaounde ... It is Ngoh Ngoh who creates the shortage of electricity everywhere ... I …

Why Everyone is Talking about Mr Leo's Looks in 'Mon Patronne' Video

Image
He had an undying love for his ubiquitous black tights and paid little attention to a stream of dislikes and complaints about those tights on social media. Who knows, but those black tights did an excellent job as they kept him relevant as the outfit trended more than his released songs. Those tights were ironically a hit.
Mr. Leo's most recent video release, 'Mon Patronne' was applauded by many fans as his style was augmented by Divine Polyvalent’s touch. We all know Divine and his affection for bright colors. Bright colors on Leo's melanin...magnificent combination.

But why those same black tights? How many of such do you have in your closet? My dark soul was electrified with laughter while reading fans’ comment on Mr. Leo’s Facebook post.

Some fans could be sarcastic (lol, social media has no friends). Mr. Leo has experienced cyberbullying more than any other 237 celebrity in relation to his brand image, personal style, and fashion sense.
Last year, Mr. Leo got bashed…
