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.
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”…

Saving Mbango revolves around the titular character (Godisz Fungwa), an ambitious young man caught up in a dysfunctional family
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 Genre: Drama/Romance
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.

We all know Romeo died for love yeah, guess who just attempted to take his life again for love?
Woman palava gone wrong! Gomez takes his life as a result of a heart break…
We all know Romeo died for love yeah, guess who just attempted to take his life again for love? Our very own lion cub, Gomez. Did we scare you? hahaha, sorry about that. It was just a video simulation. Quite intriguing I must say…
This Salatiel-Tilish co-produced single titled ça ne vas pas, depicts the regular feeling one gets when heart broken; lack of sleep, appetit or motivation. It feels like life is at a stand still and one is close to depression if not in it already. The question we ask ourselves is, is it worth it? Is a heart break worth a life? Kindly share your thoughts in the comment section.
Creativily brought to life by the CPE crew, watch and enjoy this beautiful piece.
It was in high spirits that prolific Cameroonian artist, Stanley Enow together with the Kadji Foundation paid a visit to the camp in Bonaberi, Douala, where Internal Displaced Persons have been residing.
Stanley who seems to have a busy schedule due to the preparations building up towards his album release, squeezes out time to share a moment of joy with his brothers and sisters who have been gravely affected by the on going crisis in the anglophone region of Cameroon.
He spent the day interacting, encouraging, singing but most importantly sharing love with the IDPs. Stanley did not hesitate to give out words of encouragement to them during this encounter. It is good to know that we have celebrities who not only understand humanity but also understand the importance of connecting with it. This event was put together by Carlton Smile Charity Organisation together with Cameroonian blogger and philanthropist, Henriette Nshan. Their joint effort enabled 30 kids go back to school.
Her first release since 2019, this single talks about love and in this case, it depicts the story of a guy who doesn’t want to reciprocate what she feels for him, so brings up many different stories in other to back out. Some of the words she used were “if loving you was enough, we would love each other till infinity “ Watch and appreciate the video below link an do not forget to leave a comment and thumbs up for the art.
