X-Maleya feat Lady Ponce
We made revolution at all levels. I have already told you about the revolution at the level of the sound. But there was revolution also at the level of marketing approach: the big poster in Yaoundé city center to announce the coming out of the album, it is again something new in Cameroon; we had never seen that before. We think we have to innovate for our country and we are not disappointed by the result, because everybody was waiting for this album.
We were guided by inspiration and we made no calculation at first when we composed our songs. It is true that this collaboration with could give us an opening towards English-speaking Africa, but at first it was simply about an artistic exchange. Moreover, it is necessary to say that we insisted on making more songs. We made a concert in Cameroon. The result was rather wonderful because the public already liked our song. ”
And Roger speaks with conviction of the new level to which his group is going to take the project: “I believe that in the next months, people will understand where X-Maleya wants to go. This way has to be shown, because at the moment, it is necessary to decide, either you make music only for your friends in Douala, in Yaoundé, in Bafoussam, in Ngaoundéré, etc., or you decide to conquer the world and I believe that our direction today, is to be open to other markets, not only to stay in Cameroon, because human being gets tired. People begin to understand that there is something taking place in Cameroon and our duty it is to promote our country. It is a challenge! X-Maleya does not write a movie, X-Maleya writes long series. »
