Afropop singer; BESSEM, was a guest on our Tweet chat party and she revealed a lot of juicy stuff as fans asked her questions. The hashtag was #AskBessem:
On why she changed her name from Miss Bess, to BESSEM, she responded:
#AskBessem Well MissBess was a name I and Nabil basically came up with… shoutout to @callmenabstar my Bro😘❤️… so I ran with that till when I think I came into my own as an artist… then I decided to drop the Miss and rep my full name BESSEM
On why she decided to name her EP GESTATION:
#AskBessem First off.. u Welcome…
Gestation simply means; the Beginning! The Ep is an introduction to BESSEM and a taste of something new that is to come into the Afro beat music scene.
...I only pray the Cameroonian scene especially is ready to embrace a new Era of Afro pop. I Know change is hard but am willing to stick it out till u guys give in😘😘😂
When asked how she managed to get International African Artiste; Olamide, on a track:
#AskBessem I appreciate u taking the time to get to know more… thank U. Well getting Baddo on the Track was a blessing… It was set up by my very good friends and partners over in Naija during my time there! Hope that answered your question

#AskBessem Hi there… Good evening to u too… Working with Ola was great! I think I died the day he called me to confirm the session.. Lol he was gracious, calm and very patient with my nervousness. He is indeed a great artist. As for the Vid.. Stay tuned!!😅
