“I was born for this bro” Stanley Enow says as he features on CNN’s African Voices


Hellooo!!! beautiful KD readers. So I guess you are here to read what’s up. Well thats what we do and thank you for trusting that. Lately I just like to bla bla bla!!! before I go into the main story right? Yes I know. By the way lets dive into it.

The Motherland Music signatory, MTV Base awards winner and super star rapper Stanley Enow is our focus for today. You know how all those religious people always say, “a prophet is never accepted in his on land” (lol). What does that even mean? why did I even bring that up? Well, come to think of it, Stanley seems to have a wide variety of fans out of his country than in his own country. I will tell you about that later.

Recently, Stanley was guest star at the Popular CNN program African Voices. This program deals with people creating impact all over Africa or in some parts of Africa. I guess that already tells you why Stanley Enow featured in this Program.

The interview had Stanley talking about his humble beginnings and his dive into firm which was triggered by his first single Hein Pere which earned him the prestigious MAMA awards in Johannesburg South Africa. He also made mention of the fact that music (hip hop) is what he was born to do and despite his firm all over the world he still has Africa and Cameroon in particular at heart.

Well, you remember when I said he has more fans out of his country than in it? Yeah I guess you do. Stanley has been criticized for over the years for doing bad music or should i say not so good enough hip hop by his own Cameroonians. Some think that he is over rated. I can’t cease but ask myself that how can someone do “not so good music” ,yet receive so much recognition internationally? As of now, Stanley Enow remains the only Hip Hop artists in Cameroon with the number of achievements from awards, to shows and to recognitions
