★★★★ | Thanks to Jovi's "Ca$h", Kamer Hip Hop has Just Gotten Real, Bantu Style

It surely sounds like Jovi Lemonstre is on a chart-dominating campaign. In fact, we were just getting into the “Kankwe Vol 1” EP. Still, the camer emcee dropped a throbbing polychromatic track that will undoubtedly revolutionize the entire Kamer hip hop artistry in time for the summer.

The upbeat stunner, tagged “Ca$h”, is a cross between Stanley Enow’s careless lyricality, Beti flavor brought to hip hop by early adopters like Koppo,  the guitar agility intrinsic to Zanzibar’s Bikutsi prowess and let's not forget the festive ululations. But Lemonstre is really the pillar of this entire operation; hip hop had never ever been this tribal until he put his smart brain at work and pop-ified the whole thing. Like a fresh cocktail, it goes down easily even for hip hop skeptics like myself. While listening, you can’t help but make these fast head nods and thank God for Jovi. Cameroonian hip hop has just gotten real, Bantu style.
