Ineligible Samuel Eto’o will break the law and vote Paul Biya despite dual nationality



Cameroon’s football legend Samuel Eto’o Fils says he will be voting for the seating head of state Paul Biya in this year’s October 7th polls even though the law forbids him from doing so.

Samuel Eto’o was speaking as he led a wary looking CAF President and delegation  to assure the Etoudi landlord about the certainty of Cameroon hosting the 2019 AFCON despite rumors that the tournament could be taken away from the Central African nation due to security concerns and lack of adequate infrastructure.

Speaking at the presidency, one of the all time Cameroon and African finest footballers Samuel Eto’o says “for all he has done for me and my Career, I will vote for Paul Biya”, throwing the CAF delegation under the boss as the football great politicize the organization in an unprecedented scene in Yaoundé.

The problem though is that despite being one of the most famous Cameroonian known around the world, Samuel Eto’o is also a Spanish national as he holds the European nation’s passport

Cameroon law does not give room for dual nationality and states any Cameroonian who picks up a different nationality automatically loses his Cameroonian nationality, effectively making the super star ineligible to vote in the country’s elections

Two face laws

The controversial dual nationality law has been heavily criticized though by the country’s opposition parties especially the SDF who are calling for the law to be scraped

The government has used the law to punch political opponents in the past  and while ignoring government officials who have other nationality.

Cameroonian celebs hide in shame in the face of Damasus’ unsettling twitter tirades



June 17th, 2019. Nigerian celebrity and right advocate Stella Damasus took to her platform of choice, twitter to join her voice among the growing list of celebs and diplomats to call for urgent attention to the Anglophone problem rocking Nigeria’s neighbor “I am not really interested in talking about the soccer match right now. We need to talk about the situation in Cameroon. The country needs help. Have you seen videos of women and babies being killed? I don’t understand how this is okay?”

In a span of 6 hours, the popular award winning actress tweeted 7 times about the Anglophone crisis, calling killings a “genocide” and questions why the conflict is not generating the desired attention

A spasm of social media by her own standard. A….well, you get the idea. It was a lot, sparking social media debate about what really caused the Twitter tirades back in Cameroon

This is not the first time she is adding her voice to issues of continental ramifications or even the world at large.

From Sudan to Mozambique, UK to Cameroon the US-based actress seems obsessed with her desire for a better Africa and rightly so considering her humble upbringing. Her twitter outings have been warmly received by the Anglophone community in Cameroon, a people who feel abandoned by their own Politicians and forgotten by their own celebs that have refused to use their voice to bring change when social responsibility come calling.

Cameroonian celebrities on the large part have betrayed the people, maintaining unforgivable silence in the face of atrocities in their own country. Many have come under the sword for failing to use their influence to speak out and force Yaoundé to find an urgent and lasting solution to a crisis which has killed many. Damasus describe the killings in Anglophone Cameroon as “genocide” and called on anybody who uses social media to add their voices.

But while her hasty conclusion and characterization about the former might be easily forgiven, the killings which are ongoing in the Anglophone regions are alarming and begging for international recognition and intervention. Four months old toddlers have been shot by bullets at close range, patients burnt in hospital live, 70 years old burnt along with entire villages and many more disappeared through kidnappings and killings, it’s a kind of story reminiscent of a horror movie which is playing in Cameroon’s soil and shockingly ignored by mainstream media.

“I wonder why this #Cameroon issue does not have the kind of media coverage that it deserves” Stella weeps as she continues to tweet. Rights groups have held the government culpable for most of the crimes and blame Yaoundé for the worsening crisis.

But government insist they have acted professionally, denies any wrongdoing and puts the blame on the armed civilian fighters whom they say wants to destabilize Cameroon. The results have been no school for about three years, daily fighting in villages and towns in the affected regions and hundreds of thousands displaced in and out of the country with Nigeria thousands of refugees.

By taking fellow celebrities to the task, the Nigerian entertainer has demonstrated the role of celebrity in the face of such brutality, given Cameroonian superstars a textbook example on how to add their voices in the face of adversity Cameroonian celebrities need to wake up and the time is now


Stella Damasus is a Nigerian born entertainer based in the United States of America. She is most notable for her work as an actress has been in the Entertainment Industry for over two decades and has since been considered to be one of the most popular film actresses from Africa. Stella who had owned and performed with a music band for over a decade recently released her first-ever solo studio recorded gospel album titled “THE ALTERNATIVE”.

Canal D’or 2019: Daphne demean Anglophones in front of Chantal Biya in a shocking award speech



The 12 edition of the famous Canal D’or is over and reverberations of the award night are still making waves on social media

As award which seeks to celebrate entertainers in the country, canal D’or has been the center piece of elite gathering of entertainers in the country every year

Graced by the first lady and bench of government ministers who usually trail her, the award is arguably the most prestigious award in the country and the dream of any entertainer to win a prize there.

The 12th edition which took place at the famous Yaoundé Conference center yesterday 9th March 2019 was no different in ambiance and colors

Designers, politicians and the who is who in the country’s growing entertainment industry struggled for apace in the beautiful and renovated hall.

While Anglophone A list stars backed home most of the awards of the nights as famous names like Nkeng Stephens, Mr Leo, Daphne, all backed home prices, the celebs failed to advance the course of the suffering masses back home which as forced most of them to relocate to Douala due to insecurity

But the biggest of them all was artists Daphne who won four awards including the much coveted best female musician of the year, an award which has never be won by an artists from English speaking part of the country in the award’s 1 years history

Daphne’s biggest moments also came with big expectation as many saw the opportunity as a moment of glory. But the calee singer failed to satisfy and gave a brief uninspiring speech.

Congrats to Daphne2 but you failed to use the big stage to make meaning of it ….her speech as best female artist was disgraceful and belittling to English speaking Cameroonians

At a time where her brothers, sisters and mothers are in the bushes, many dying of bullet wounds as the Anglophone crisis worsens, what better stage would she have craved for than the one she had last night  in front of the first lady.

She had a golden opportunity to bring their plight to the world as a woman before being an artist.

She embarrassingly and naively said if they had told her an Anglophone would one day  win that category should wouldn’t have believed, as if to say Canal D’or is a “national” course. She also  went ahead to ignorantly shout “Anglophone  oyeah”

Critics say she would have used the moments to add her voice on the plights of Anglophones especially women and young girls who continue to suffer the most in front of the mother of the nation and

Chris Brown Arrested On Charges Of Rape In Paris



A judiciary source in Paris confirmed to NPR’s Eleanor Beardsley on Tuesday that Chris Brown has been detained, along with two other unnamed individuals, on charges of “aggravated rape” and multiple narcotics offenses, and that they currently remain in police custody.

The French magazine Closer reported on Monday evening that an unnamed 24-year-old woman has accused Brown of raping her in his suite at Paris’ Mandarin Oriental hotel, during the night of Jan. 15-16. The woman told Paris police that she met Brown in a nightclub in central Paris earlier that evening, and that Brown invited her, along with other women, back to his suite. At some point in the evening, she alleged, she found herself in a room alone with Brown, and that it was then that he allegedly raped her. Brown’s accuser also said that a friend of the singer and his bodyguard also abused her.

In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault for attacking his then-partner, the singer and entrepreneur Rihanna; she was granted a restraining order, and Brown was ordered to community service and domestic violence counseling.

Last May, Brown, rapper Young Lo and an unknown woman were among those suedby a woman who alleged that she was repeatedly raped, sexually assaulted and falsely imprisoned by Young Lo at Brown’s house in 2017.

A request for comment from Brown’s management was not immediately returned.

On Tuesday evening Paris time, Brown posted a vociferous denial on Instagram, writing in part: “I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR…… THIS IS FALSE … FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL [sic] AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!”
