Hello and welcome to another DC post. Today we are talking rapstar du kwat SPIDO and his new video for his new track Sûre Mbom shot by Ndukong Bertrand aka February 16th Pictures.

Spido is fast becoming a prominent figure in the 237 music scene, seen as a rapper representing the voice of the youths of the streets. His energy and love for what he does is eminent and can be seen especially when he is on stage performing.

Before we reveal the video, below are 5 interesting facts from both Spido and Ndukong.
  • Spido’s real name is Herve Tchoumba.
  • He is the 3rd of 8 children.
  • He did his primary and secondary education in Douala.
  • In 2010, he discovers a love for film making which pushes him to work on film projects including « Face à la glace » which sold a million copies.
  • « Sûre Mbom »  is a term used by most Cameroonian youths to mean «confidence, we are together, respect»
  • Ndukong watches a lot of Manga cartoons.
  • He loves frying pancakes.
  • He loves interacting with others but is not the party kind.
  • His flexibility and creativity enables him to make something great out of nothing finding it much easier to work with artists who are full of energy and who understand what he does.

Hello DC readers, another day another new post to fill you up with!!

So recently on his Facebook page, we have noticed a shift in the communication approach by our Papa Samuel Eto'o.

Over the years, Eto'o has mainly identified his brand with a rather French and Spanish approach which we found rather worrying considering le Camer est bilingue! As a talent with this very rich heritage behind him, Eto'o should've have used it as a big unique asset in is career and brand development.

Nonetheless, whether he has been encouraged by his communication team or whether it is due to the fact that he is now a Chelsky player we are happy to see his 'Anglo' side pour out.

Check out below images of some of his posts.

So there you have it, the Anglophiled Eto'o lol!! So so go before Papa!

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers from the US of A. Enjoy your feast and be thankful too.

He is on a solo route after saying his goodbye to Black Triangle Africa so ACE is not new to the Camer music scene. After almost a year behind the scenes working on his materials, he is ready to go public and show us just what he is made of under the new umbrella of BlackGold Entertainment.

What is he bringing to our ears? An RnB track that blends subtly the classic and the contemporary rhythm and blues with carefully selected instruments and a sound that is unique to him which he has dubbed CameRnB!! We love that!

Without further ado, here below is Molo Molo the debut track from ACE. We love love it and DJ Pazzo is sure making a name and a reputation for being one of the best producers in Cameroon.

So so go before Team 237!! Enjoy!

Hope you liked it!!

Soooooo DC readers and lovers, we can't tell you all how excited we are at the changes being made around the entertainment scene in Cameroon...we are too excited because we have another update for you today and we have had this song on replay abuse all day!!

Askia is a Buea based rapper/singer with a bad girl attitude signed under Sieni Brothers...she has no time to answer calls by the way but if you give her the music you can party with her...till dawn!! If you didn't know, she is Askia and she was born like this!

The video of the track with an unforgettable hook "Tat' Obaseh"; well put together by Adrenaline Studios is a party/dancey/upbeat well represented video that certainly does the track justice. From the dancing guy group, to the dancing mami at the end and even the dancing duel scenes between the guys and the girls at the end shows you why you cannot be seated down for this track...everyone has to be on their feet to dance...Askia did warn you lol!

What we also love about the video is that Askia actually changes outfits!! Now that is a change we want to see continue especially amongst the female artists. Please take your image seriously!!

Well take a look for yourself...remember you have been warned! Get up and dance!!

What do you think? Tat'!!! Tat'!!!

And here we are with more new vibes for you to enjoy but first, we must congratulate our Lions for a job well done today. They certainly showed us that they have woken up from their slumber by thrashing Tunisia 4 goals to 1 and eventually qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil next June. Un Lion ne meurt jamais n'est-ce pas?! So dear DC readers, which of you will be there live?!

It seems Papa Eto'o and a few have already started the celebrations *_*

Okay so back to the matter of the post today, these are the 2 things we wanted to bring to your attention...

On Friday, soulstress Gasha dropped this bombshell of a tune painting real life issues into this easy laid back lyrically sound piece. Her creativity in songwriting sees the lyrics of "This Life" woven intricately into an Afrobeats-Zouk influenced Dancehall inspired track. "I wanted to do something that no one in the industry is doing" says Gasha. "I'm sticking to my roots with the lyrics while fusing Zouk and Dancehall into Afrobeats."
Check it below...

Fresh from singing before a crowd in New York which included America's former first lady Hillary Clinton, Sine has released this collaboration with Cameroon's first musical son Petit Pays. He hinted about this collabo a few weeks ago and finally we can all see what it is about! We guarantee you you will be pleasantly surprised so check out "Paple" below...

That concludes our update for you today! Spread the 237 love y'all and once again great job les Lions Indomitables!!

Sine; former 2009 Africa Star winner in Gabon seems to have had a time of his life with an outstanding performance at the "Malaria No More" event hosted in Hillary Clinton's honour in New York.

 "Malaria No More" was born out of a discussion between Chernin, Chambers and former MPAA chief Jack Valenti at Allen & Co.’s annual Sun Valley conference for moguls and billionaires. Further study made Chernin convinced that malaria could be eradicated in his lifetime.

But because the disease that still kills a child every 60 seconds (mostly in Africa) is entirely preventable and treatable, he brought a CEO’s mentality to launching an organisation with a clear business plan to raise awareness, spread low-cost treatment and most of all, preventative measures such as distributing insecticide-treated nets to keep mosquitos away.

Here is what a journalist had to say about Sine's performance:

"The evening closed with an upbeat perf from Cameroon pop star Sine, whose ability to shake his rump in skin-tight pants was the subject of much discussion as attendees made their way out of the Time Warner Center. The event raised more than $1.2 million..."

What a way to end a show!! Good job Sine.

We are on a roll here...3 days in a row we are bringing you new happenings within team 237's entertainment scene. So we've had Denzyl with the Nanga Boko song, yesterday we had Deejae Vybz ft Fluri Boyz with Marabou and today we have....

Yes today ladies and gents, we have one of the main established hip hop act whose ground breaking debut album H.I.V became one of the BEST produced; musically as well as lyrically arranged album in 2012 and really of all time as no other act can claim this in the urban scene.

Today we bring you the new video released yesterday of one of the tracks within that album - "Bushfaller" featuring one of Cameroon's "anciens" musicians the renowned Eko Roosevelt who is said to have been well pleased with this "Attend Moi" sampling.

In the video, we see why we all fell in love with JOVI as a rap star and why his popularity became so steady upwards. The attitude was swaggish, the lyrics were well spat out, the video was well shot and seems carefully edited with well selected colour tones and even the choice of styling and the set were all on point.

Okay, enough from us. Please watch it below. The video was shot by Ndukong of February 16th Pictures. He is the main videographer/photographer at New Bell Music. Kudos to him :)

About 2 weeks ago we hinted about the release of the audio track "Nanga Boko" by Denzyl a very steady name now within the music scene.

This hustler's anthem is a witty Makossa meet upbeat Afro Pop melange that shows the extent a lover would go to satisfy his demanding yet untrustworthy girlfriend.

The track was written by Denzyl and produced by Mr Elad aka Mr Melody - an artist also who you should watch out for in 2014.

Are you ready to dance? Well put on your dancing shoes and shake that mother feather to this delish up tempo banger of la danse de Nanga Boko...enjoy listening...and dancing!! Thank us later.
