The Bring back Makossa campaign has been up and running on Dulce Camer for the past 5 weeks. Each week, we bing you some old Makossa tunes which will get you reminsicing of childhood moments and bopping to the "wicked" rythmns!

This week we will be focusing on the Decca family. They have been known as the royal family of Makossa since Ben and little sexier sister Grace took over our radio earwaves and our television screens during the Tele Podium and Tam Tam Weekend eras.

Ben Decca's Makossa style has been dubbed the softer and more elegant Makossa while his sister Grace brought the sexy back into Makossa making her also a great fashion icon during the late 80's and inspiring a trend with her famous split dress in the Muyengue video which was later dubbed "the Grace Decca split".

With no further ado, enjoy the videos.

Oh myyyy, memories!! They never die, they just stay hidden somewhere deep down inside of you waiting for the slightest of triggers to bring them flooding. Grace Decca has surely been my trigger today!
Hope you enjoyed the videos.
