These days in the Camer scene the trend is to create and associate yourself with a dance, a slang or a tagline of your own. We've seen it with "Sure Mbom" from Spido, "Hein Pere" from Stanley Enow, "Nanga Boko" from Denzyl and "Bastard" from rapstar Jovi.

Today, this one is entitled "Olopyto" and it is by US based artist Vreezy Ville released yesterday. Please don't ask us what it means...just listen!

And that's it!

It was a few weeks ago that we reported the Manu Dibango at 80 concert that took place at London's Barbican.

Here is another fan review for you by another culture enthusiast and proud Camer chica, Betty Atia.

"An absolutely brilliant show it was. Even at 80 Manu Dibango showed that he was still the man in charge. I personally was totally 'wowed' by how much younger he actually looked. The cherry on my cake was being given the opportunity to get up and close to Soul Makossa. I feel our nation is well represented in the world's jazz scene and I really hope that more Cameroonian jazz artists feel inspired to work as hard."

Wishing you were there too? We do too! Oh well, next time!

Only a few days and there is so much to report about...pheeeww there is certainly no rest these days for a Camer blogger and the Camer talents are not joking!!

Oh well, we certainly love the buzz and today, here is what is new. Watch and listen...

This one is for the "Family", for he only sings for the "Family" so while we await the "BASTARD" video shot in the heart of Mabanda, Douala, here is a new audio track entitled "Family" by Jovi LeMonstre aka Don 4 Kwat released yesterday. Enjoy!!

This one, we just heard it now and the beat totally caught our attention. We are increasingly building up an encouraging amount of hot beats right outta 237 itself. This is great for our music industry so thumbs up to all of the music makers. This one is called "Made In Cameroon" by Melcube. Enjoy!

We do not know much about this artist but apparently she is Yaounde based and her name is Krucial Kate. This one is entitled "Gone". Enjoy!

He is a new talent we just discovered last week at an event here in London. He is a talent who is certainly very proud of his Camer heritage. We love to see this pride especially in talents so young. This one is entitled "Eba" and the talent is Bizu Nino. Enjoy!

Gasha is a name you cannot ignore. She certainly has the talent and the music and videos so far have been consistent. What does the future hold for this amazing talent? Only time and her strategy will tell. "This Is Life" by Gasha...enjoy!

The Mboa Urban Music Tape Vol 1 enabled the public to discover new talents which included Zayox and his "Bangando Star" track featuring the very talented Edel Koulla. The video shot by Ndukong aka February 16th Pictures was released early December. Here it is...enjoy!

Okay so that is enough for your listening and dancing pleasure for today!!
The diversity in Camer music is great right?

After “Don’t 4get Me” and “Confirm”, Kwasia Braha (Watta) is the dancey follow up track that attempts to please both the "lyricist" and the "dancist” with a controversial twist and a fun, satirical video to match released today.

Kwasia Braha; meaning “fool come here” in Twi an Akan language spoken in Ghana - is once more another powerful lyrical track from Nabil portraying three verses of uniquely and articulately aligned all pidgin lyrics with humouristic metaphors and reality inspired imageries where Nabil shows why he is unique.

The video is a comical attempt to showcase the bad behaviour from those unpleasant “haters” equipping you with a one sentence response back at them…”Kwasia Braha Bring Me Some Watta”.

The video features guest appearances from legendary Cameroonian comedian/actor/radio host Fingon Tralala who puts up a wonderful display of a Kwasia and also displays some great dance moves, Deejay Omar Eppz, the best African DJ around Belgium and the hottest dance group LA N6.

The track was produced by Majestro "the beat maker" a young talented Belgian producer of African origin, composed by Nabil and mastered by Stephano.

We already told you to be on the lookout for this banging new video right? So here it is…! Watch and share the link please.

How do you like his dance moves?!

We are not aware of the full details yet but yesterday it seems a section of the Ministry of Public Health building in Yaoundé was on fire.

Judging by the lack of proper maintenance services, age and IT equipment facilities in these buildings, we are not surprised of such an incident taking place.

We hope no one was hurt. If you have more information about this, kindly leave a comment and share it with us.

3. You are cautioned to take Kwasia Braha with a large dose of humour. Although controversial, Kwasia Braha gimme some watta is what you should tell those people who hate for no reason. They need to give you some water to cool down your hotness ;)
4. Kwasia Braha was produced by Majestro "the beat maker" a young talented Belgian producer of African origin.

10. It is easy to look very good when you are Nabil aka Nabstar but oh yes we must confess there was also a styling team for the Kwasia Braha video! Nabil was dressed by upcoming Belgian based designer Sanhela Teky. MakeUp was done by Grace Yankee and the coordination by Harmony and Ely of HASWELY.
11. The original text to Kwasia Braha was "I am getting hotter hotter bring me some watta" but was changed to “Kwasia Braha gimme some watta” with a little help from a Ghanaian friend.

Extraordinary, relentless, doubtless, hopeful, fiercely dignified, highly educated and much much more...oh what a person!

Tata "Madiba" Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela has died today 5th December 2013 around 8.50pm South African time in his home surrounded by his family.

We all knew this day would come however our heart aches, it aches so bad to even take this news in but we are thankful. Thankful for the life he chose to live. He lead by example with humility and peace being at the core of his person. 

We would like to end the post with this quote...

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” Nelson Mandela

You will forever be an inspiration. You will forever be our hero. We love you Tata Madiba.

It was only last Tuesday that the Afro/World Jazz loving and Cameroonian communities in London were buzzing with a certain high energy of expectation and anxiety as legendary "Soul Makossa" king and proud Team 237 hero Manu Dibango was due to perform at the Barbican.

We were unable to attend but don't fret, say, have we got news for you?! Yes we have!! We asked a few attendees to give us their impression of the show and here is our first review below by writer, culture enthusiast Ngum Ngafor.

Happy Reading...


Not even the madness of Transport For London could come between me and my date of the year! After unnerving negotiations around delayed train lines, I got to London's Barbican concert hall in time for Muntu Valdo's amazing opening performance for the legendary Manu Dibango's 80 birthday gig.

If you haven't seen Muntu yet, think one man bad with the command of a wicked ensemble. Some have even compared him to Bob Dylan! I can see how. He was bringing down that harmonica folkiness down with a unique Duala quintessence and the audience drenched in it! There was even time for a humorous demo on real time loop recording.

Muntu offered several delights from albums “Gods and Devils” and “The One and the Many” but 'Dimala' (we will go) remains the most lingering. And what do you know? It's the track that first caught Manu Dibango's attention.

For a mega star, Papa Manu seems hardly hot on airs. In fact, with a 9-piece- band in tow, he stepped onto the stage with the cool of a man walking into his living room.
Opening salvo "Douala Serenade" was clearly a statement of intent and we fell for it. "Soir Au Village" may have opened magic doors into the simple delights of rural life. But this wasn't going to be just another groovy, sit down affair!

From makossa to funk, jazz, bendskin, reggae and classic rhumba, Manu had his audience rump shaking and foot stumping. There was even some outright crazy dancing too lol! But the highlight of the night for me had to be Manu's performance of 70's mega hit "Big Blow" with British Jazz great Courteney Pine. L-a-w-d! The sax talk between them was an exquisite assault on every single sense!

Deciding the setlist for a Manu concert must be a nightmare so while I'd have liked to hear favourites like “Kango” and “Okoh”, I won't hold their absence against anyone and what's more? With its unmistakable stutter and evergreen sound, another wicked arrangement of "Soul Makossa" was just the closing high we needed.

Energetic, playful and way beyond seasoned, one gets a feeling Manu Dibango has not just mellowed with age but that he also stopped thinking of music as work decades ago. And did I mention he looks F-I-T!

Yes you just did!! Pheewww...what a review!! Takes us back to centre stage doesn't it?
Many thanks to Ngum for her thoughts. Follow her on Twitter @NgumNgafor

Camer based artist Sine seems to have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for this year after achieving to do what many Camer artists only dream of doing in their career time which is to sing for a very high powered official such as Hillary Clinton former America's First Lady and runner up presidential candidate. Sine just accomplished that and also did it in New York, New York!

He also recently released the video to 'Paplé' a slang term for 'crazy' which showed an excellent collaboration between him and Petit Pays depicting a beautiful melange of the old and the new, Makossa and Afrobeat.

What a way to close off the year we say and we hope to see more from him in 2014. Check out his 'Victory' sign as he chills in downtown Times Square in NYC.

Camer obosso...right?!

That's it!
