On this twelveth day to Christmas, DC brings to you...

Name: Steven Mbu Njang aka Steveslil

Age: 23

Location: Buea & Douala, Cameroon

Label: Intercession Records LLC


DC: Hey Steveslil, thanks for talking to DC. Now talk to us about your sound.
Steveslil: My sound is RnB, Afrobeat and Hip Hop. I sing about the common issues such as love, partying/having fun as well as social issues.

DC: Why are you so passionate about music?
Steveslil: I was born into a musical family, my mother sang in a choir and my father was a composer. I was also in a choir as a lead singer as well as being in an all boys’ acapella group called “Boys on Zion”. Whilst at Uni, I was very much involved in music as well!

DC: Where you encouraged to venture into music?
Steveslil: My parents saw the talent but they didn’t take it likely. You know how our parents are; they always want us to go into the “normal” careers paths such as becoming a doctor or lawyer. However, now they are ok with it because they are seeing my progression.

DC: Which artists influence your music?
Steveslil: I would say artists such as Maxwell, Angie Stone, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson and Makossa artists.

DC: Your track entitled “I Can”, what is all about?
Steveslil: It is about having a fun romantic moment with a girl in which you aim to give to her whatever she wants. It is a love song.

DC: Which artists would you love to collaborate with?
Steveslil: I would love to collaborate with artists like Ne-yo, I love his songwriting credentials and his style. Chris Brown, Rihanna and GT are others.

DC: How is the music scene in Cameroon?
Steveslil: Well, the scene is growing it is still a baby industry but we are trying to make it shine. We don’t have a real structure like distribution outlets which is a real problem affecting artists. Getting recording deals is another issue and this has forced most artists to be indie. It needs to be developed.

DC: What do you hope for in 2010?
Steveslil: I am in the studio right now recording my album so I hope 2010 will be a great year for me as I will be releasing my album. I will also be planning to go out of the country for concerts.

DC: How do you hope to spend Christmas?
Steveslil: I am sure I will be in my village as I will be having a concert there! So I will be down in Nguti performing live!

Here below is the video for I Can. Enjoy!!

Watch out for the new album release here on DC!
Stay tuned for more talents...

Stay sweet
