Best Ways to Preserve Your Family’s Special Moments

We are yet to embrace the culture of preserving family memories. Most of us, in the present and near past, don’t even know how our families are structured, talk-more of knowing our cousins and other relatives. The few who know the family history, either lived in close relationship with other family members or took out time to dig for themselves.  Finding ways to preserve your family memories is not only an enjoyable pastime, it may create a rich social history of your lives for future generations to come. Families have long held onto memorabilia that give insight into their lives;…

For many, marriage is the ultimate goal of a serious relationship, but finding the time to meet that special someone that you may spend the rest of your life with can be a difficult task. Many people find it hard to separate themselves from their busy work life and find time to meet other bachelors/spinsters. Matchmaking therefore becomes an imperative tool  to help them find their soulmates and make the process of meeting someone new less difficult. Matching Making is quite strange to most Cameroonians, but recently, some matchmakers are becoming the best social and human resources in helping people find…

CHINA DOMINATES ALL SECTORS AS HOLLYWOOD VALUES FALL: A MOVIE REVIEW

Top 5 Stanley Enow’s songs

Stanley Enow

Stanley Enow is by any standard the biggest name on Cameroon’s urban music stage. His achievements  speak volumes, he’s been occupying the top spot of the rap game for half a decade now and we are yet to see any major challenger.  King Stanley Enow’s journey so far could be likened to a prophet who barely gets honoured in his home! We have seen him over the years convert his hardened haters to fans. Cameroonians are characterised by an in-depth degree of nepotism and tribalism. He’s been called a wack artist by people who didn’t even take out time to…

Spectacular Bamboo Craft from Bafut by AMBEBI ALBERT CHE

At a time of duress, at a time of  emotional explosion, at a time of unfathomable pain, one thing remains untouched; craft. The beauty of man becomes unreasonably selfish when he lets the darkness in him overshadows craftsmanship. Our generation has experienced faults and folds of events that are enough to make the tides of our history sanguinary. To say the least, the Darwinian theories on evolution have proven true from one generation to the next, and it has always been the survival of the fittest. In this trying time, very few of our kind have stood their grounds, they…

Decoding and Rating the Lyrics(DRL): Big G Baba – Solution Dey

Hey there CB Readers! Hope y’all are kicking healthily strong.

Was Stanley Enow in the right frame of mind when he made the statement?

Stanley Enow

In the 70s, the Douala based  Makossa style dominated the scenes in Cameroon! In 1972, Manu Dibango released his much acclaimed  funky hybrid “Soul Makossa” which at the time and beyond, was the greatest musical export from Cameroon as its popular chant “Mamasay mamasa mamakusa” touched the souls of both Michael Jackson and Rihanna so much so that, they had to incorporate it in their respective lyrics of: “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin” and “Don’t Stop The Music”. Makossa evolved into an urban, electric and dance rhythm beat which later morphed into “Pop Makossa” championed by the likes of: Eboa Lotin, Manu Dibango,…

What Does Makeup Say About You?

Does the amount of makeup you wear communicate your attitude to casual sex? Why do women wear makeup? Human behavior is complex and there are likely a number of reasons, but it is probably uncontroversial to suggest that by far the most important is to increase attractiveness. Many research studies have shown that women wearing makeup are judged more attractive by both male and female raters. This is probably because makeup exaggerates the femininity of the face (the natural color of the lips and eyes is darker compared to the surrounding skin in women than it is in men) or because…
