A foreign act entrusting the totality of his project to an African entity is a phenomenon that is rarely seen on the Cameroonian music scene. LILM trusts FKI Prod, a Cameroonian label and entrusts him with the production of sound and video of his first single RASTAMAN.
Born in Cameroon about a year ago, FKI Prod aims to immerse and impose its presence in showbiz. Its primary role is to provide more quality content so as to enable Cameroon to gain remarkable recognition on an international scale.
In the single rastaman, LILM plays the role of a first-class Glander who spends his days smoking joints, who has never worked but has money of which the source is unknown. He comes off as a megalomaniac narcissist.
However, LILM deep down seeks to find love, get out of his neighbourhood and lead a stable life only, all in all, become a better person. In his opinion, he needs a self-respecting girl to achieve all of this. Unfortunately, he seems to only have access to the ones he can easily have in his bed.
Enjoy this single and do not hesitate to leave your comments.
A model and an exemplary citizen, he invests himself every day to improve the living conditions of the people.

Launched on her Youtube channel since December 16, 2019, Lynda Raymonde’s il est marié video is a musical delight garnished with bikutsi sauce that you absolutely must discover and share.
In this song, the artist depicts hypocrisy, deviousness and lies telling within couples. She paints the picture of a treacherous married man who is not satisfied with the affection of his wife and seeks comfort elsewhere. She presents to us the man who always conquers, who flies from flower to flower, the insatiable man in front of a determined and rigorous woman who needs love, but also who knows what she wants above all; respect. A real treat of warm sounds that reveals to us Lynda RAYMONDE, current, original and multidimensional. Watch and enjoy.

After the release of its audio version in May last year, Ben Martins releases visuals for his single, Te Wa Ndjagbang, an extract off his second album currently in preparation.
An authentic artist in his voice and in his texts, Ben Martins affirms his cultural identity through his music. His songs speak of love, hope, faith and perseverance. Values that the artist wishes to transmit to his audience beyond borders. Straddling between traditional heritage and modern influences stemming from globalization, Ben Martins is undoubtedly an artist to follow and one of the safest values of Cameroonian music.

After a long break, Cameroonian artiste, Meshi begins the year by releasing a brand new banging single titled Aye.
The record was produced, mixed and mastered by Sango Edi, and the video was directed by Mr Tcheck. In this new single she encourages her listeners to hang in there no matter how difficult the journey may seem. People will discourage you but know “Beta things are on the way”…
Watch the video below:
Just a few days into the new year and we are already getting some heatttt! Anonymous lady attacks Cameroonian singer Montess for allegedly getting down with her boyfriend. In her message, she warns the singer to stay away from her ‘artist’ boyfriend and threatens if Montess doesn’t desist, she might face repacussions.
What drew our attention was Montess’ reply? Did you find it appropriate? Was the clapback hot enough? Let us know in the comment section below.
This is an extraordinary step forward and a chance for all Cameroonians. It is above all a concrete answer to the concerns and frustrations of Anglophones. Indeed, “The Republic of Cameroon adopts English and French as official languages of equal value,” stipulates the said law in Article 1 paragraph 3.
This will gradually and surely allow all Cameroonians to become more easily bilingual. Which is an excellent thing for their future, especially their openness to the world, and that of the country in particular for a better cohesion.
To arrive in an administration and to be laughed at because one does not speak English or French is traumatic. This law is therefore fundamental in that, in addition to promoting bilingualism, for its application it has enabled the recruitment of more than 500 interpreters and translators by the government, who will be deployed in all jurisdictions that require their presence.
The law promoting Bilingualism in Cameroon now exists!
From a practical point of view, it is a law that establishes equality, because better than before, a user can be served in the language of his choice by the administration. There will be more rigor in improving the promotion of bilingualism in public institutions, the private sector and civil society in the country.
In addition, section 17 of the Act provides that press articles, and other institutional communication documents, must be produced and made available in both official languages.
Directed By: Nkanya Nkwai
Producer: Stephanie E. Tum
Main Cast: Godisz Fungwa, Onyama Laura, MacDonald Libota, Stephanie Tum, Malvis Ann Mohvu, Einstein Young Jr, Ralph Obi Tambe, Ngonga Elizabeth and Otia Vitalis.
Release Date: November 29th, 2019
Saving Mbango revolves around the titular character (Godisz Fungwa), an ambitious young man caught up in a dysfunctional family who constantly get in the way of his dreams and ambitions. The only snag is that he falls in love with a village girl Mbango (Onyama Laura) who almost everyone considers an outcast. John quickly realises his problems are secondary to Mbango’s and his overbearing family stands in the way of this love. John is therefore torn between acceptance by his family and his almost ‘impossible’ love for Mbango.
There has been a lot of hype about Saving Mbango both pre and post production and especially during the promo for the grand premiere of the movie in Douala which was proudly sponsored by Orange Cameroon and now I see why. The movie was indeed a mighty fine one. What particularly endeared me was the simple and basic plot which was easy to follow and not overly complicated.
Shot in Mondoni village, the storytelling was decent and appealing and was brought to life by some really good acting especially that of Godisz and Laura. Their character was so relatable that after a while, you start seeing them as John and Mbango rather than Godisz and Laura. Laura’s innocence and pure nature were charming and really cute and that swayed the audience to her side. I was also impressed with the characters of Stephanie Tum and Solange Ojong who went completely 360° anti-clockwise from their usual selves to fit into these roles perfectly.
Other than the acting I must specifically note that the technical aspects of the movie making were top notch. The colouring was marvellous and the camera work was superb. I especially liked the way they transited between scenes. Another commendable aspect was the soundtrack – they used really appropriate cameroonian rhythms which aided with the overall feel of the scenes.
The plot twist at the end was really a move to be commended. I’m really proud of this movie because of its simplicity and cultural fitting for local and international audiences and I do recommend it to everyone especially the Cameroonian film doubters. Saving Mbango is scheduled to stream in Canal Olympia cinemas all over Central Africa starting with those in Yaoundé and Douala.
