Micheal Jackson, dubbed the King of Pop is no longer with us. He passed away last night at 10.26 British time at the age of 50.

It was about midday LA time when paramedics were called to his mansion after allegedly suffering a heart attack.

He was transported to UCLA a few minutes from his mansion where doctors battled for over an hour to save his life but later pronounced him dead.

The cause of death is still unknown but his body has been flown to the LA coroner's office by helicopter for a post mortem. It is suspected that he may have overdosed on prescription medication.

Michael Jackson was due to headline a 50 date comeback tour at the 02 Arena in London starting next month. This tour was meant to restore his status as the ultimate and the only King of Pop and it was also a chance for his fans to see him one last time on stage. Tickets for the shows sold out within hours.

Michael Jackson lived his entire life in the glare of the media and this continued right to his untimely death.....LONG LIVE THE KING OF POP. Fans and stars pour in their tribute.

Feel free to share with Dulce Camer your thoughts.

His music will surely live on...

You died too soon, may you Rest in Perfect Peace.

From Kumba town to Milwaukee city, there is a rising MC doing his thang and doing it BIG!

Unveiling his second album today entitled “African Juju”, DC hereby brings you Sona the Voice as he is popularly known.

He speaks to DC about his new album and his scheduled tour in Cameroon after summer.

Happy reading y'all!

DC: So how did you get into this genre of music?
SONA: Growing up, I heard a lot of hip hop music whilst in school and I got into this music and started copying the way the artists were rapping just as fun. I also then began to listen to Tupac a lot as his music was getting popular in Cameroon.

DC: How did you then venture into your own lyrics?
SONA: I started rapping to my own music from one day while my brother and I were playing a video game and an instrumental track came on at the end and my brother just looked at me and said do your thing! I just started freestying to the instrumental song and the rest is history.

DC: What did your parents have to say about this?
SONA: I have reached a stage where my parents are taking me really seriously though this was not the case when I first told them that I was venturing into music..they wanted me to get a degree, my masters and have a normal career. Nevertheless now they are joyful and proud even including my grandmother!

DC: How easy was it setting up your own record label?
SONA:It is not an easy task, I tell you that. You need a lot of resources, dedication and hard work to get it together.

DC: How do you get your fans to believe in your MC style?
SONA: [He laughs]...there is something about my records...I have to tell you that each artists discovers themselves over time... so for my fans, I just connect and put my heart into what I do. I tell them stuff I have seen and experienced whilst growing up in Cameroon. My music is not make believe!

DC: "African Juju" is the title of your second album, why that name?
SONA: Well, erm I chose it because I wanted to show my worthiness to represent my motherland and it has nothing to do with masquerades or anything.

DC: What is the general message in this album?
SONA: A message of struggle, victory and of Africa in general.

DC: Any collaborations on this album? Who are they?
SONA: Yes, I collaborated with Emphasis E on the track entitled "Go". I also had a production company in New York called Uprising Production collaborate as well as Jason Samanik engineering the music sequence.

DC: What do you hope to achieve with your music?
SONA: To reach the 4 corners of the world. My music is a movement which will seek to showcase Africa.

DC: When is the tour in Cameroon?
SONA: The tour will take place this autumn in Cameroon and I will be working with Timaya, a Nigerian artist. We will also be working with local artists in Cameroon.

DC: I hope to get the schedule once you release them!
SONA: Mos def!

DC: Will you be touring anywhere else?
SONA: Yes, there are other stuff in the working. I have been travelling here in the US alot doing shows..more will come. I was in Europe from early May doing shows as well. I may return to do a couple of shows again.

DC: So what will be the first single of this album and why that choice?
SONA: The first single is “It’s all about Money”. I chose this because I talk a lot about what money can and can’t buy in the song and how society treats you because of your plenty or lack of. It shows the dual side, the pros and the cons of money.

DC: What is your idea of a successful life?
SONA: Having peace of mind, having no worries, that’s my idea of a successful life!

There is always an exception to a rule and this time it had to be done! DC only showcases Cameroonian talents but we are going to show our solidarity by promoting an African talent!

Paul Sika is a 21 year old Ivorian new phenomenon causing waves in the photography world by his new art form of photoshop filters whereby he uses emotions, colours and these filters to express his message.

A chance discovery by Kanye West and a feature of him on his blog has catapulted this very talented African dude to stardom.

Here are some of his work and to find out more check out his website http://www.paulsika.com/

Talented not so?

With Cameroon's talents venturing and conquering all parts of the music industry, well MCing is by no means an exception!

I hereby bring you SONA, the star MC creating waves down in Milwaukee. Sona moved to this state to join his father who had left Cameroon before he was born, in pursuit of a better life.

After enrolling at the University of Wisconsin, Sona decided to pursue his passion for music by founding his own record label, Imperial Records and producing and releasing his debut album "Man in the Mirror". His first single "Dreams" climbed to number 2 on the CMJ new music report for the hip hop genre.

Sona is currently working on his second album, "African Juju" under the changed name of his label, Intercession Records which is due to be released June 25.

Sona’s goal is to bring about a positive change in the Milwaukee hip-hop community and help the scene achieve national recognition through his music.

He is planning a nationwide tour in Cameroon after summer, catch him if you can and I hope to bring you the tour schedule.

Hey peeps, I brought you the story regarding the US president, Barack Obama's personal signed, sealed and delivered letter to the US ambassador to Cameroon advising him not to issue or suspend US visa's to some politicians who in his eyes were corrupt because of the size of their US bank accounts.
Ok, so as I was browsing the net, I came across the names on the list...
My question is, are these people the most corrupt in Cameroon? I know there are a few more names I would love to add!

Check out the list here: http://www.camernews.com/news/124/ARTICLE/1511/2009-06-18.html
