Q: First of all we want to say welcome to you.
A: Thank you very much for this interview on your platform.
Q: How did you come into music industry?
A: Well, in a nut shell, I had been doing music unprofessionally, until 2016 when my rap crew PIM boys got signed by a US based record label; a contract which was short lived. Afterwards I recorded a couple of demo songs which I tried to send out to investors but with a lot of disappointments. But finally by the grace of God I got introduced to Sessua Entertainment. And here I am today with “Vanité” out as my first single
Q: Who was your inspiration for music?
A: Honestly I don’t have a particular person who inspired me to start singing because I listened and still listen to a lot of different genres of music, from gospel to country to reggae to gospel to makossa rap, Afro beats etc. So I cannot pick one particular person I will say was my sole inspiration.
Q: What is the name of your debut song?
A: Vanité is the title of my fist official single and the visuals is already out and available on all platforms, YouTube, Deezer, Apple Music etc.
Q: Say something about your musical journey?
A: As concerns this well, I moved from being a well-seasoned rapper to now a singer. Between 2011 and 2013 I spent a lot of hours in tiny room studios, took part in a lot of street performances, 2014 I contested in a talent show Organized at the University of Buea, participated in the Cameroon music star in 2015, from 2018 I worked as a backup artist for Cameroonian Rapper K.O-C, still in 2018 I engaged as a ghostwriter, selling some of my songs so I could meet up with my needs. Had a lot of disappointments in 2018, and 2019 I met Sessua Entertainment
Q: Who helped you most in your journey?
A: My help, I will say is all God. I had a lot of encouragement and assistance too from my friend KO-C whom we started music together
Q: Who gave you pieces of advice?
A: I had a lot of moral support and advice from a friend I consider as an elder brother to me. His name is Dwight Nonso. Sometimes I still hear his voice in my head like, ‘’Bobby you are too too good to quit music, fight bro fight, tins go show tins go soft one day’’. I still ask him for advice even until this very day. He is like my Personal counselor
Q: What do you do now a days?
A: I spend most of my time at home. I spend a lot of time on my social media accounts, working on the promotion of my first single Vanité. And am starting my Yaoundé media tour tomorrow, so I will be quite busy for the next two weeks with the local radios and Tv stations. Also I write songs as usually when I feel inspired, I also do a lot of jogging because Football is my second talent. I watch a lot of football too and read novels
Q: Let us know something about your future projects
A: Well, I got a song coming up next after Vanité. It’s a song I decided to feature K.O-C on. And Next year I will be dropping my Extended Play and I will start working on my album in which I hope to feature both local and international artist
Q: What is your message to your fans?
A: To my fans I say a very big thank you so far, and just to let them know, we keep moving. So am counting on their continuous support and I have a lot of good music to offer them. So, one love
Q: Any message for new artist?
A: To the new artist I say, work hard, pray and don’t let anybody discourage you from pursuing what you believe in. And most importantly be humble
