Steve’Slil has the gift and versatility to effortless switch from one genre to another. After releasing the singles "Ebangha" and "I cut you cafe", the Cameroonian sultry R&B/Afro-pop songstar has gamely resurfaced with a life-enhancing love and marriage story incorporated in a soul-searching song titled "Diana".
He describes "Diana" as a musical marriage between post-independence highlife music and contemporary Afro-pop harmony. In essence, "Diana" embodies the traditional harmonic rhythm which could be dubbed "Palm wine music", married with western instruments.
"Diana" expresses love and appreciation to God (Eta Mandem, thank you...) for giving a beautiful wife who deserves all the sacrifices a man can give just to make her happy; "na with you I go fly, America, Europe, Africa, to Asia coz you be my baby." Steveslil's vocal timbre and delivery perfectly gives the groove the song deserves.
The song was produced by the legendary Emil Ngumbah, directed by Didi Blaise and filmed by Dr Nkeng Stephens. The video portrays how matrimonial love can be devoured by the fangs of jealousy and covetousness, quite an intriguing African tale to savour. Watch it below...
