Hey KD readers, it is a new week and you already know. In this Diary, we pen down our weekly crushes. This column celebrates those people using their talent to affect their immediate society and the world at large.
This week we focus on Salatiel. Salatiel is Alpha Beta Records boss, that you already know I guess. But let’s tell you a few stuff you did not know…
- Did you know his full names? well Salatiel’s full name is Salatiel Livenja Bessong
- He obtained his Advanced Level certificate in 2005 and enrolled into the University of Yaoundé 1 with dreams of becoming a medical doctor. Because of his love for music, he dropped medical studies for a less complex field of studies (Zoology).
- He first visited a recording studio in 2008 with the Breakthrough Voices to record a gospel album entitled “Lord I’m Sorry” at the M1 Studios in Buea. This experience gave him the desire to become a producer himself and he did most of the keyboards in the album himself.
- He then created the group “Da Thrill” in 2010. They competed in the Nescafé African Revelation and won firstplace in Cameroon and second place at the Pan-African finals in Senegal. With Da Thrill, he did a tour of Cameroon and performed on huge platforms alongside artists like Meiway, La Fouine, Flavour, Kery James, Zaho and Soum Bill. As a producer, he produced 90% of Da Thrill debut album “New Dawn” with the hit single “Je Te Yah Moh”.
- He has equally produced about 100 albums, more than 3000 songs for more than 300 artists.
