First of all, let me plug the song I wrote in honour of Pascal Siakam. (More on him afterwards, I promise.) Believe me, it’s worth every dime of your time. Enjoy!

Always & Forever: The Keys to Your Best (Married) Life
I remember (almost a couple of years ago now) when I celebrated my first wedding anniversary, people kept asking me what lessons had I learned in that first year. My answer was (and still is) always the same: “I didn’t learn much because before I got married, I knew exactly what I was getting into...Continue reading
Why Was I Mum on the Elections in Cameroon?
…Or as my good friend Morack asked me, “Why aren’t you writing about these Cameroon elections?”
Mental Health: Stop the Stigma
A few years ago, a close friend was going through a rough patch. He had just broken up with his sweetheart and was having a hard time getting over it. One day, while I was talking to him on the phone, he told me that he was feeling better since he started seeing a psychiatrist.Continue reading
Why I’m Rooting for the Raptors (And Why You Should Do The Same)
First of all, I would like to announce that the Toronto Raptors will be NBA Champions at the end of this 2018-2019 season.

When Rwanda decided to increase import tariffs for second-hand clothes (twelvefold!) and second-hand footwear (tenfold!), I was clapped profusely. Did you know that East Africa accounts for an eighth of the global import market for worn and used clothing? By increasing import duties, Rwandan President Paul Kagame hopes to strengthen the textile industry in his...Continue reading
My Take on The Ten Best Ever French Rap Groups
When I opined on the ten best French rappers, most readers were quick to disparaged my picks and the ranking. Although it was far from perfect, that article has a special place in my heart because it is the one that has generated the most discussions. Since I like hip-hop and its debates, I decided...Continue reading
The Ten Most Popping Artists in Cameroon
Back in 2008, I was on a promo run for my album Persona Non Grata and I gave an interview to the Kamerhihop site. When the journalist asked me what I thought about the state of Cameroonian Hip-Hop, I replied that I didn’t quite follow the movement. Undeterred, he pressed on and asked me what...Continue reading
