The industry which is ever-growing keep welcoming new acts almost daily. TeboPost presents to you the top six hottest new acts in the country’s music scene.

Jaye

Jaye is a Kamer musical gem who shot to fame in 2019 after the release of her infectious single entitled “Un genre Un genre”. Un genre Un genre was a groundbreaking hit that ushers the soft-spoken and well-endowed beauty queen to stardom.

Her music and sounds take influences from Afrobeat, dancehall and our local Makossa. Growing, she was heavily inspired by music from Cameroon and Central Africa such as makossa, Ndombolo , etc. This experience has her open her perspective on how our music and sounds should be and thus the need for us to go back to our roots.

 In an exclusive interview she granted to TeboPost, the Diva said with music, evolution is the key, and added that we have to go back to our roots and shape the industry with innovative strides. With this approach and ideology, one can say in definite terms that she is a beacon of hope and a new light that will shine on the Cameroon music and sounds of tomorrow

Her latest release “Amio”, has been well received and has been making rounds on every DJ’s playlist and topping the charts on Boomplay where it was excessively released alongside famous names like Ed Shareen and Master KG. Her management and label BGC Melody are looking forward to releasing for Amio on the 14 of February 2020

Fhish

Fhish is a Kamer uprising musician who shot to fame early 2019 shortly after the release of his first hit Kirikou. Fhish is one of the music genius kamer has given birth to. He started aiming for the mic even before he could handle its weight.

 A town boy who has become a music star at an early age, from a neighborhood freestyle artist to lifting the nation’s flag on billboards. He is one guy who is profoundly dedicated to his craft, focus on his arts and challenges to be challenged.

 His vibrant personality, visuals, and delivery have allowed him to create a new lane for himself. Since his signing to Manjong music in 2018, Fhish has released more than five hit songs that have been making waves, topping the charts and enjoying massive airplay in radio stations across the nation.

In 2019 Fhish had beef with kamer rap guru Stanley Enow that went viral on social media and fetched him a considerable amount of notability and fame. Though many described the act as gross disrespect to Stanley who is seen as an inspiration and a giant in the industry.

Fhish maintains that respect is reciprocal and will not dare accord respect to anyone who looks down on him. The artist is one of his interviews offered satisfactory explication on how his beef with Stanley Enow emanated from. The young star explains that he attended one of Stanley’s events (on Stanley’s invitation) with his team of management which he often refers to as his government, and were ignored throughout the process of the occasion. He described the situation as a premeditated and deliberate act by Stanley to humiliate him and his government.

Tina Musical

Tina musical is one of kamer acclaimed uprising with a promising future. Tina started singing way back in her home town Bamenda but finally shot to the prominence last year 2019 when she met one of the industry’s legend Tzy Panchack who shaped her career by bringing her into one of his tracks entitled “Naso”.

It was a turning point in her career as she was able to showcase her huge musical potentiality and exhibit her great talent. After “Naso” with Tizy, Tina has released a handful of singles which have brought her more recognition amongst Kamer new waves of young artists who prefer melancholy and introspection.

 Her single musica has been well received both in the Anglophone and francophone communities of Cameroon and has portrayed remarkable growth in her vocal strength and choice of satisfying, if not adventurous soundscape.

Tina has succeeded in displaying singing chops over songs that draw acapella and harmonizing blends of woozy traps synths and sun shakes on traditional Afropop. Her 6track EP is a theme of sadness, loss, morality, turmoil, of one’s inner life perseverance in one’s arts and spiritual growth

Kameni

Kameni is an emergent Cameroonian “musicologist”, a monumental force to reckon with as far as the new wave of Kamer artists is concerned. Her first and self-pen single titled “Nayo Nayo” received wide attention and brought her massive fame and recognition and became a solid contender for the biggest dancehall song of the year.

 In Nayo Nayo, the artist delivered a conscious message, speaking against the phenomenon of families depending on their members in overseas, which is so common in Africa’s widely diverse society. Kameni has gradually become a household name.

After her first hit, she has released a couple of dancehall ballads which have been dominating the nation’s airwaves and have stolen the ears and the heart of music lover across the nation, setting the pace for the country’s sound.

She has featured Mr. Leo his label boss in two of her tracks that became a gateway to what is now a thrilling musical career. The proven musicality in Leo’s guff vocal added a good texture to her celestial soprano much to the nostalgia and joy of many music lovers

Her charming and imposing outlook, her sensational lyricism displays, her authoritative and soul grabbing voice that soothes and lifts, but more frequently invites introspection and melancholia in her sounds couple with the propulsive bass drums varied with melodic astral effects, has helped her to build her reputation as a sure-footed dancehall artist

Nabila

Nabila is another outstanding and exceptionally talented artist to look up to. The 22years Fatima Rodriguez was discovered in 2016 on the cover of Locko’s sawa romance. Music lovers were charmed by her soul-searching vocals.

This earned her a nomination in the best female voice category at the 2016 Ballafon awards. This is how Nabila marked her entry into the game. The talented songstress who is under the supervision of Kamer production house REIGN releases a groundbreaking hit last year entitled ca va aller, a phenomenal and a successful hit that saw individuals relaxing to her soul grabbing voice, making Nabila one of the most sought-after music stars in the country.

Most of her songs speak about love, affection, romance with a tone of seduction. Her latest release is an expression of a woman who pours her blues to her lover, asking him to look beyond his worries and think of happiness which they can secure together, a mixture of zouks and afrobeat cadence.

 Nabila dropped a 6track EP last year that was positively embraced and top music charts across the nation. The award-winning female songstress does not show any sign of slowing down or looking back. Her music style, professionalism, and relatable lyrics have won her fans and endless accolades across the nation. She has achieved quite a lot in her career through hard work, dedication, and determination. Amazing concert performances, her sharing of the stage with big names in the continent and her last December prestigious Balafon award, are not left out as some of the artist’s achievements. Nabilla has won a considerable amount of recognition and fame as a result of her expertise in the craft

Her energetic performances and African infused styles are evident in her hairdo, fashion, looks, songs, and music videos. Music lovers across the nation recognize signature African style, choice of music and beats. Though in her song cava aller we could see her shortcomings in the second voices, accompanied by the auto-tune and this broke certain parts of the lead voices.

Mic Monster

Mic Monster is one of the Kamer uprising musicians and rappers who has made a significant contribution to the promotion of rap music and hip Hop in Kamer.

The reclusive rapper who navigated his way to the Kamer music scene in 2015, has dropped a handful of expertly crafted songs that have catapulted his status and has brought his music a wilder audience. Mic Monster is among the few Kamer rappers who are pushing rap music into the mainstream consciousness, integrating street culture into rap music, an element that our hip hop DNA is still short of.

 His latest release “Johny” has gathered him a slew of fans and momentum. He is deniably one of the fastest rising under-lords of street music in Kamer. He has evolved into a premium storyteller and concept creator through his latest bodywork Johnny and is gradually approaching veteran status.

Critics have bashed him for not having enough solo hits to his name, but his aforementioned Johny has made him the hottest commodity on the street. While his peers are lost in abstract bars and excessive glorification of street decadence, he rather uses his music to address the ills of contemporary Cameron, blending everything with humorous, ingenuity and conscious lyrics.

His top-notch wordplay rhymes in English infuses with Pidgin English, his brilliant penmanship, super lyricism has made him a peerless brand of musical ingenuity. Mic monster has demonstrated amazing musical expertise and professionalism as he continues to balance his topnotch lyricism with mainstream sensibilities. His novel bodywork Johnny has been aired on various stations across the nation and make rounds on almost every DJ’s playlist and also found in a vast majority of Kamer websites and blogs

Cameroonian music industry: A story of lost identity in a competitive global marketplace

Published

on

For a while now, there have been fierce debates about the value and importance given to the Cameroon music makers amidst a flourishing music industry in next door Nigeria.

Artists, their protégés, producers and some music lovers have reprimanded almost everybody but themselves for the inability of camer showbiz to be fully embraced in the homes of Cameroonians or better still the utter neglect of Cameroonian music in the nightclubs, talk less of attributing anything reminiscent of the kind of rock star status they do badly crave beyond the borders of Cameroon.

Cameroonian music has been rising again but has failed to resonate beyond a traditional fanbase, unattractive to the continent and uncompetitive in a global marketplace.

Nightclubs Djs have come under the sword from some fans for relegating Cameroonian made music at the bottom of their pirotity play lists each time they go to work while corporate multinationals like MTN and ORANGE Cameroon have been roasted for double standards and outright bias as they chunk out hundreds of millions for foreign artists each year to perform in Cameroon for few hours while local artists are drained for an entire night for peanuts.

Even the presidency has not been spared in the latest onslaught by Cameroon music first campaigners and the first family came under diet early recently for importing Nigeria sensation Wizkid to entertain them for reportedly hundred of millions francs CFA at the expense of home based artist in December 2019.

Campaigners for what is now known as the ‘support your own’ mantra have been trumpeting their disenchantments with the statusquo , flooding social media with soul touching videos and audios filled with messages of entertainment loyalty to fatherland enveloped in a rare show of cultural patriotism

They strenuously try to argue that Cameroonians don’t value their products and detest consuming made my Cameroon with same passion that they consume made in Nigeria or even Tanzania, and they add that the multinationals don’t respect local artists reasons why they can’t make enough money to be globally competitive with their foreign counterparts

Meanwhile, critics of the ‘support your own’ concept have been quick to push back those criticisms, ridiculing the campaign for lack of foresight and label its backers as transiently and unforgivably naïve.

They argue the world has become globally competitive and Cameroonians deserve to enjoy good music irrespective of its origin or even language.

*Making sense of this all*

The business of music industry in Africa has been evolving and to be fair Cameroon has enjoyed its glory days when the west African nation once topped the continent’s music chart for decades.

Makossa which is known as the Cameroonian brand and defacto license holder of the genre was the melody of the continent in the 70s and 80s, and then the Congolese dethroned the Cameroonians with a genre of their own in the 90s. The Ivorian took the continent especially FRANCOPHONE Africa by storm in the early 2000s with their coupe Decale before surrendering the lead to the Nigerians few years later

Till date, the Nigerians have redefined how music is made and listened, embedding in their songs their rich culturally heritage and exporting it to the entire world with the help of their population and entertainment-friendly government.

The world just can’t get enough of Naija.

Nigeria entertainment industry is arguably the highest paid in Africa and contributes heavily to the country’s GDP, as a matter of fact, the entertainment industry in Nigeria makes more money in the country than any other industry excerpt oil, employing millions of Nigerians and making constant waves around the continent and indeed the world

Stars like Burna Boy, Flavour , 2Face, Dbanj, Kizz Daniel, Wikkid, Davido, P-squere, Tiwa Savage, Yemi and endless list of others have all revolutionize music in Nigeria and continent producing hit songs after hit songs whicbhas inspired the continent and make them multi-millionaires- atleast on social media.

They have understood that showbiz is far from just singing beautifully or acting talentedly, they are investing millions on their PR and self branding , flashing luxurious cars and merchandise on social media, attracting huge followers who seem to be endlessly impressed with their aristocratic and flamboyant lifestyle.

Consequently, their concerts have been jam-packed and almost always having a sold-out arenas anywhere in their country, Africa and around the world, gaining millions of worldwide fans and buidling a personality cult.

Multinationals based in their countries have also stepped in, signing multimillion endorsement deals with the artist whom they are sure have sizable following for their brands and helping to project them to the world like never before constituting a formidable partnership which works for all and retiring any other model which doesn’t look similar to the Nigerians with such unspoken arrogance

The Nigerians have redefined the entertainment business in the continent and project the real business site of the word showbiz-They are simply flying at the moment and seem to be doing everything right. the message is simple, donit the Nigerian way or retire.

It’s therefore no surprised that rising stars and local idols in other countries scramble to collaborate with them as they seek continental glory.

Most top Nigerian artiest have an entire team to work with from manger to PR and many more, constantly projecting their artists and forcing down their songs down our throats.

Do we need to talk about the music, they are always hit songs accompanied with top class videos and unrivalled graphics, epitomising hard work and talent punctuated in well panned, targeted and cordinated financial investment.

It’s not surprising therefore that Davido can get the popular O2 Arena in London sold out for a show in just few weeks (a feat attained in the past only by world class names like Beyoncé), performing for an entire night with the crowd chanting and singing to the rhythm of every single line of all the songs he played that night.

While the Congolese and Ivoirians are still sticking to their brand albeit declining fortunes, Cameroonian young stars have abandoned Makosa completely, embracing Afro hip hop and doing very poorly with hurriedly composed substandard songs and poorly released videos, mimicking Nigerians who are the best in that game and at the same time wants equal recognition

Some music gurus like Salatiel have tried to rebrand and reinvent with a blend of French and English culture to produce something unique to make waves across motherland Africa but it has always lack the cutting edge to create the deserving impact to the choosy Cameroonian youths. There is hope none the less.

Pressuring DJs to play unappealing songs will only kill their own career by sending customers away and demanding similar favors from Cameroonians through appeals in a globally competitive world is a nonstarter- they won’t buy it.

Our artists have a lot of work to do to redefine their sphere, reinvent and repacked their career and focus on producing good music worthy of international competition and embrace aggressive PR.

There are flashlights from the likes of Daphne, Salatiel, Mr Leo, Blanche, Locko and many more… but much work is still to be done if we must compete continent-wide or beyond

We are in the 21st century and music must be consumed and loved because it’s good and better than others and not because it was done within a define geographic location——times have changed
