Tenor has released his new singletitled Alain Parfait ( À L’imparfait).
The video released by EbangFang En Pire presents comic historical facts as demonstrated by the main character in the music. His behavior is quite humorous and will probably serve as special one for fans who have been hungry for new material since he signed with Universal music.
He is young, vibrant, energetic and talented… He has been electrifying stages around Africa for the past months and today we are honoured to have such a great talent on our platform. Meet Mr Le Fiang Le way Le Yamo AKA Tenor! Without much ado let’s get down to business…
237xclusive : Hi Tenor and welcome to our platform. First we would like to know; What are your real names?
Tenor : Hello 237Xclusive. Thank you… hahaha well that’s a popular question…my real names are Mengoum Ayea Thierry
237xclusive : That’s a “Beti” name I guess. How did the name Tenor come about?
Tenor : Well back in the days…I used to be in a church choir…where I got my inspiration to become a musician…and I used to sing in the Third part..the Tenor part…so I just found e name ideal for my music career because that was my foundation. But yet TENOR also signifies “Toucher l’Exellence de la Negritude Ordiner du Rap”.
237xclusive : Wonderful! It’s amazing how a simple name could have such a meaningful acronym. I would never have guesses even in the wildest dreams. Before being a musician, were you and what were your dreams?
Tenor : Eurrr…before being Tenor , Ayea Thierry was just a student at the Lycee Technique d’Edea. I studied Marketing and communication unfortunately I couldn’t write the baccalaureate exams cause I was out of the Country performing at a concert. In my childhood I’ve always wanted to be a musician. To Excel in music. That was my only dream. It’s true I could do other things but I don’t think there’s anything I can do better than music and with as much love and energy.
237xclusive : Mr Le Fiang Le way Le yamo. What does that really mean?
Tenor: Hahaha…like every artist, that’s my own signature..Le Fiang where I’m from means “La Sauce” or food…Le way is “Les Bad things..” and all together on yamo.. “ we enjoy both”.
237xclusive : How do you feel out of war machine…and was it the end of your contract or you just decided to leave? Also, do u intend continuing on your own or getting signed again?
Tenor : Well…my business with War Machine was not a contract. It was more like a family. An elder brother who wanted to help his little brother. And like in every family the son would want to gain his independence. That’s exactly what happened. And on getting signed again..it all depends on the opportunities that show up but for now I’m just interested in giving out good music.
237xclusive: So Mr Le Fiang…do you intend doing music all your life or do you plan on starting up a business..?
Tenor: I’ve actually been thinking of this and for sure I’ll start up a business…a business in music..In some years to come..even if I’m not a rapper..I’ll still be somewhere around the music world because that’s where I belong.
237xclusive : Thanks you so much for the exclusive interview and we wish you well in your career.
