NEW ARTISTS ALERT
Generally I receive tracks with very little or no info. I am glad that the producers/promoters/management of these 3 music discoveries of the last few weeks took their time to introduce their artists.
P Rhymes ft Morena – Love u Baby
himself with another AFRO-COUPE-CUBAN hit with one of the best in the Cuban music industry Moreno Chambelo with this track titled LOVE U BABY. This track is very different in that its not just an afro-coupe decale Genre of music but it blends in with the uniqueness of cuban melodies which makes it dynamic danceable.
John Mary – On est a Ngola
As a tribute to his hometown; Yaounde, and in prelude to his forthcoming album ” The Criminal Empire”, I wish you to discover him with his first audio single, dropped in @music studios; “On est à Ngola”, which is also one of most awaited video clip in the Cameroonian Game.

Wax Dey – Makossa
As per Wax, this is his acceptance speech to the recognition as part of YPIA’s Top 35 under 35 “If you no know who I be, may you google you go see”. Let’s just these Makossa Afrobeats fusion is just the isshhh…
This track highlights the influence of this underrated genre in today’s international pop culture, and to call attention to the rise of a new breed of Cameroonian musicians. One of the defining moments of global music has to be the 1972 release of Manu Dibango’s Billboard Hot 100 song, ‘Soul Makossa’, that has been credited with the creation of the international ‘DISCO’ sound.
But Makossa as a genre, characterized by catchy brass sections and bouncy bass riffs
that created some of Cameroon’s biggest international stars, has struggled to keep its
place in the Cameroonian urban scene. Nonetheless, its impact is still best felt through
its contribution to the new African pop sound.
In 2010, Shakira released ‘WakaWaka’, an adaptation of the 1983 Cameroonian classic ‘Zangalewa’, that partly has its roots in this genre. This came at a period when ‘Naija’ or Nigerian afrobeats is enjoying a wave of success across the world. It is also undeniable that Makossa has had a deep influence in transforming the ‘Afrobeat’ of Fela Kuti to the ‘Afrobeats’ sounds that have propelled Nigerian artists like Flavour and Iyanya to international superstardom.
A wave of Cameroonian musicians mostly from the Anglophone regions of Cameroon, to whom the world had been quite oblivious, has awoken with a new afropop sound that is impossible to ignore. They have also borrowed from Makossa, blending French phrases and their own pidgin Creole that is similar to Nigerian pidgin English. Thanks to this, Cameroon is witnessing the creation of a brand new, lively urban musical scene that is rich in texture and variety. And the rise of these artists signals a rise in social consciousness of a youth that have for decades been deemed as voiceless but who are stepping into the limelight with the assurance that their place in the social and cultural fabric of Cameroon, and Africa, can no longer be usurped.
