DULCE NEW: LOCK CHOU BY DUC-Z


Duc-Z made a lasting impression on the minds of Cameroonians with his very catchy and rhythmic "Je Ne Donne Pas Le Lait" which has now been engraved onto the Cameroon urban vocabulary and used by almost everyone. He then released "African Mamy" and we also accepted and got on the dancefloor to support our own and even the girls got hooked...African Mamy, tu as ce qu'il faut...he sang.

His sign up onto the Empire roster was announced with a "Je Ne Donne Pas Le Lait Remix" which saw him partner with Empire head boss Pit Baccardi and Singuila to a tune that was another club banger but with a controversial video due to the message it portrayed.

Fast forward to 2014, and here is another Empire led new music from the rising star. The video was shot by NS Studios. Watch and savour below...

DULCE FASHION > MEULLARA > SPRING SUMMER 2015 COLLECTION BY IMANE AYISSI

Taking a break from our music posts...pheeew, we wait 6 months for great new music and they seem to come dropping in one week!! Okay so here is something new on the fashion scene. Last week in Paris, world renowned Cameroon designer Imane Ayissi had his collection launch in Paris. We received our invitation but however could not attend *sad face* while browsing we fall on a link with the images of the show combined with some on Imane's Facebook Page.

Imane Ayissi takes a different approach but still staying true to his brand in this new 2015 Spring Summer collection which is dubbed "Meullara". He makes a demi tour on his usual fabric choice opting for something fresh and unique. In it we see a display of African textiles, something from Ghana, from Mali, from Ivory Coast...with large boxy cuts that hides or accentuates, cropped tops, fitted ankle trousers, flared skirts, and very long and short elegant skirts. All together, the collection is fresh, chic and simple. We would have opted for a different hair and makeup styles for the models but it seems Imane was really being rebellious with this collection so we applaud his efforts.

Check out some of the images below...what cool shoes the models had!!














What are your thoughts on the collection? Tell us!!

These past few days on Twitter we were constantly tagged on a series of tweets that were counting down the release of a single. We usually get a few of those and we always wait to hear what is being proposed. 

There is always 2 ways in which these new songs are received by us - either in excitement or in disappointment sometimes wishing we could fully give back our feedback without crushing dreams. 

Well, thank heavens that on this occasion, all we have been feeling is a combination of excitement and amazement. Excited to know that such a talent that is EWUBE exists within the 237 scene and amazement as to the ease of how she sings and sounds...how effortless, how simple!! What a breath of fresh air!! So here we have it a Bayangi girl on an afropop song with a dancehall twist with effortless vocals like those of Rihanna...ohhh yessss, we foresee a winner!! All she needs to do now is to work on her image and brand and she should be able to fly higher higher!!

Whether you dey chop na puff puff, no care, whether you dey drink na garri, no care, whether you dey chop burning fish no care, whether you dey drink na Tangui...well no care either! Here is "Party All Nyte" by EWUBE of Best Music Inc. Song produced by Slimbeatz.
