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.

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 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 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 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.

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.

Her energetic performances and African infused styles are evident in her hairdo, fashion, looks, songs, and music videos.
