BETA TINZ’ Top 10 most significant Camer urban songs in 2016!

2016 has been a very exciting year in the Camer urban music scene and the Cameroon(ian) entertainment scene at large. Several hundreds of hit songs were celebrated but from our analysis and observation, these 10 stood out not necessarily for being the best Cameroon(ian) songs in 2016, but because of the cultural significance they recorded and how much they were celebrated:
Number 10: Jovi- ‘Mongshung’

Our Mboko god; Jovi,  gave us several tracks to celebrate and dance-to this year, but Mongshung, particularly stood out for us, not only because of its dope melody, beat and flow, but because of it’s cultural significance. Jovi‘s flow in this song is all in french. He has been one of those Camer urban acts that utilizes and personifies our diversity and bilingual nature as Cameroonians. The song is a smooth representation of one side of our Camer urban culture; the one where youths try to fit into trends and stand out with fake clothes and accessories. Click below to watch:

9-Daphne ft Ben Decca- ‘Ndolo’
We can never get enough of Daphne‘s soft voice! Her collaboration with the legendary king of Makossa; Ben Decca, on the remix of ‘Ndolo‘ was epic. Two generations, decades apart, in one song was simply amazing! Ndolo is one of those songs that everybody loves! Click below to watch:

8- Stanley Enow ft Locko ft AKA- ‘Bounce’
The Kingkong; Stanley Enow, gave Cameroonians another realm in which to dream! His collaboration with one of Africa’s finest; South African super mega rapper; AKA, is another reminder to Camer acts that everything is possible.

7-XMaleya- ‘Djocka’

Xmaleya is like the most consistent Camer urban music group that exists! This year they gave us more than one great tune, but djocka stands out because of the nostalgic feeling it exudes. All Cameroonians who were born about 20 years ago and earlier can relate to the slang ‘ball-a-terre’ which was very recurrent in this song. Also the guitar strings that were played in the song, are very similar to those of old school Makossa tunes. It just left us nostalgic! Click below to watch:
6- Mr Leo- ‘Jamais Jamais’ 
Mr Leo has stolen all our hearts! We fell in love from E go better and we just keep sinking deep in love.

 5- Tenor- ‘Do Le Dab’
Do Le Dab has been the theme song of all night clubs, parties, and outdoor events! The way the young rapper; Tenor, blended Camer urban culture with the popular American ‘dab’ was plain genius! One can safely say that a party, was not fun, this year, if Do Le dab; was not played! Nobody has the ability to sit still when Do Le Dab comes up! That’s how serious it is! Click below to watch:
4-Magasco- ‘Wule Bang Bang’
The video of the song was released on the 4th of December last year.
