[237Music]: Blueprint Hakeem – Abongwa (Official video)

Blueprint Hakeem has released the video to his 2016 song Abongwa…Blueprint Hakeem - Abongwa

The song Abongwa may have been rooted as the last track (9) on the Cameroonian rapper’s already released 2016 Cold Like Alaska’ album, but fans definitely agreed it was a top and first choice to gather every push Blueprint Hakeem‘s album needed.
Released just a few days before Cameroon plunged into a crisis, the single however has not stopped being one of Hakeem’s favourite conscious releases till date. 2 years after the audio release, Blueprint Hakeem took to his Facebook a few days ago to announce the release of the video to Abongwa.
Written by Blueprint Hakeem and produced by Chabi Z, the rapper shackled ideas with Cameroonian video director Yonka, to paint a vivid picture of an already solid-state written story.

Abongwa is a story of a kid who wishes to go to school like regular kids do, but coming from a poor family juxtaposed with a useless and drunk of a father, those dreams may never come knocking.

The song sees Hakeem taking up two personalities as the second verse takes on another storyline, this time, involving a substance abuse character, Bobga. Bobga became a marijuana addict after his rich father passed away. He became a loner, depressed because life wouldn’t smile as it used to when ‘daddy’ was alive.
It’s a story from a very true place as Hakeem admits, he simply coupled up ideas of the things he saw in his neighbourhood while growing up, especially after looking at struggling children.
The colourful video by Yonka Films matches perfect dramatization as Hakeems’ song narrates, same time. Get the video to Blueprint Hakeem’s ‘Abongwa’ here and tell us what you think.

237Music: Blueprint Hakeem – You Rappers should fix up your lives

Blueprint Hakeem goes off on the entire rap game in new song…

Blueprint Hakeem - Cameroon

The self-made lyrical genius, God Of Ngomgham aka  Blueprint Hakeem finally came through and debuted this new track on his YouTube channel, titled “ You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Lives “.
Like he warned us earlier, it actually is a controversial song that takes aim at every English speaking Cameroonian artist in general and rappers in particular who have suddenly switched to rapping/singing in French in the hope that they will sell more records and become more mainstream if they dropped their English identity in greater favor of a more French oriented style of music.

It’s no news that for some time now every English speaking artist in the game has suddenly started doing more French lyrics in their songs than they do their own language and even though the songs actually do sell them out to the French markets, they are slowly killing the Anglophones musical identity, something the English fans have been worried about for so long now.
The Bamenda rapper holds nothing back on this one as he pulls out every other rapper who has switched allegiance to the French rap and calls them all, “sickle cell rappers who need Kontri medicine” he also makes it clear in the song that it is not about the language but the power of your music and the lyrical strength of your rhymes. Everybody else who is a fan of real music will identify with this as an honest fact being stated by the outspoken daredevil.

As a challenge to those who might feel some type of way because of his straight forward nature, Blueprint Hakeem goes on to rap “Wizkid and Davido cam for Douala the concert be flop them be sing na for French?” honestly , I think this line here is as true as it can ever get because seemingly the highest selling acts now in the African music scene are English speaking artists so why will our own English speaking artists in Cameroon all of a sudden want to become French is a show of how short-sighted they are and how much they beg to be accepted by a French following which really doesn’t care about what language your music is made in.
This song has the power to stir up a great deal of controversy because seemingly those artists guilty of the language switch and in dire need of the Blueprint Fix will be in their feelings now and this could lead them to lash out at the outspoken MC.

 

Blueprint Hakeem will allegedly take it out on Cameroonian rappers in new song.

Earlier this week Popular Cameroonian rapper, Blueprint Hakeem, dropped a controversial statement on his official Facebook and twitter pages that he will be releasing a very controversial song this week, on Wednesday 13th.

Blueprint Hakeem
The statement published by the rapper on his page sparked controversy instantly and took a turn for mixed reactions from fans and other artists when yesterday he released the artwork for the song. The artwork stipulated that the song would be a cover on the popular song “You Rappers Should Fix up Your Lives” by M.I Abaga, one of Africa’s greatest ever rappers.
        The original song which sparked immediate media controversy somehow became an instant inspiration for the Cameroonian rapper from Nebangu Muzik who seems to have had enough with the fact that his fellow Anglophone artists have in recent years abandoned the culture of English music and now sing more French than English in their music as a motive for greater exposure and capturing the French markets, a sentiment that the ‘God Of Ngomgham‘ has denied to co-sign with, claiming in his recent interviews and on his social media accounts that it is destructive to the English music culture and even went on to point out the fact that it makes the English artist look lost in a music industry where the French speaking artists do not see the need to prioritize English in their songs.

         Upon announcing the songs coming, which is being waited for by fans and critics, the controversial and highly versatile artist went on to put up a sample art with a picture of Apollo (the Greek mythological god of music) which instantly sparked another topic of argument between fans who know the significance of the picture and those who were just plain scared in the face of a god.
However you want it, Blueprint, being one of the fastest upcoming acts in the industry today just passed a message out with this art and it is clear that this time he is no longer the god of Ngomgham but the god of the Kamer rap game and the chosen one to rescue the dying hiphop sector of the Cameroon rap game and he intends to do so by staying true and religious to the game while at the same time exposing every flaw with the rest of the other kamer rap artists who have decided to betray their English culture by raping  in another language or totally switching from rappers to singers, all in French language in the hope that it will help them breakthrough easily.
The king of controversy will in a couple of hours from now give us a feel of the dark sides of his “illmind” in his highly anticipated “Fix-up Your Life” cover for the song originally performed by choc boys chairman, M.I.
Till it drops let’s wait for it and hope out of straight honesty Mr Hakeem goes not go overboard to ruffle a few feathers but rather turn some of these rappers turned singers turned francophone back to the right direction and rearrange the rap game once and for good.

Blueprint Hakeem is not new to the Cameroon music scene. He’s had successes with singles like Ma Head DI Hot and Ngomgham Bwaii. These have made Blueprint a household name in his home town and with this LP, he plans to extend his reach further to all corners of Cameroon and across the world.

 

Cold Like Alaska is a classic hip hop album. Blueprint is pure hip hop. However, with this album, Blueprint shows us his versatility on tracks that are heavily Afrobeat (like Sui Mbom) and R&B tinged tracks like Aaliyah Song and TC. Blueprint tells stories in songs that make you question society as a whole and its responsibilities to children; as well as songs that uplift you in celebration. His writing is his best asset.

 

“In my opinion, my sound will seem empty if my lyrics, story, flow…aren’t out of the box”

 

Some of the finest producers in Cameroon were tapped into crafting this album, including DJ Chuucss, Zeero, Fresh Fingerz, DjHop, Dijay Pazzo, Gee Reign, Chabizee and Gohhprime. Their diversity and style is clearly woven together by Hakeem’s unique style of delivery to give you an album that moves you and is easy on the ears.

The first single off this LP is Abongwa; a touching song about a child’s despair in not being able to go to school. The ease with which Hakeem tells such a complex story and the twist in the story will make you want to take a second listen.

 

“With Abongwa, I wanted to fit myself in a struggling child’s shoes and see where it hurts. I plan to continue to tell Abongwa’s story in subsequent albums…this is the first part of the story”. Blueprint Hakeem.

 

Abongwa will be released as a single on the 14th of November and a video will follow shortly.

 

“I am excited about this mini LP. I hope that the fans will take to it and get to walk with me through an exciting journey of love, hurt and joy. I am looking forward to their feedback and can’t wait to have an opportunity to meet them and perform tracks off the album” Blueprint Hakeem.
