So we are nearly at the end of this music campaign. We hope you have enjoyed reading the blog as we have loved updating it.

Each day has been a learning process and we have loved bringing to you all those peeps causing waves in the Camer music scene.

They are all very talented individuals, all from different backgrounds but with one common thread - their passion for music and their desire to use this passion to pass on a message onto the world.

We love these talents and we will do everything we can to constantly promote anything they do so watch this space!

On the twenty-second day to Christmas, DC brings to you...

Name: Danielle Eog

Age: In her twenties!

Location: Yaoundé, Cameroon

Label: Indie

Contact: http://www.myspace.com/danielleog

Danielle's sound is afro soul. A mixture of jazz, soul, afro beat, bossa nova, mangambeu and makossa.

She is hoping to release her first album which will be entitled "Tobassi" and with tracks like "Kongossa", "Original African Man", "Another Somebody" and a melange of languages, from French to English to Bamileke to Bassa, this album definitely epitomises the culture and identity of Cameroon.

Her musical influences range from Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Nat King Cole, Nina Simone to Fela Kuti, Miriam Makeba, Mos Def, Jill Scott, D'Angelo etc

Danielle's desire is to share her art and her world with as many people as possible.
Watch her on the "Je Wanda" video by the Rap Conteurs group.

Just a little teaser for you...tell me what you think!

So, what d'ya think?? Great voice or great voice!!
Ohh weee, Cameroon is going places!

See you tomorrow!
Stay sweet
