new artists in the 237 music industry

A significant number of new artists in the 237 music industry have made waves this year. Today, we have produced a list of some of the few people who are exerting substantial effort to sustain the entertainment business.

After realizing that many young and skilled musicians are helping to expand the Cameroon music industry, we have compiled a list of some of them. This list

For this year and in no particular order, here are some of the promising anglophone new artists in the 237 music industry:



Yxng Prido

Being so passionate and aspirational, PRIDO released his first recorded rap freestyle in 2020, the same year he joined the record label ATM ENTERTAINMENT. YXNG PRIDO has demonstrated that he deserves to be listed among the group of upcoming and gifted rappers from Cameroon. In 2021, he released “EKIE,” his debut single, on which he collaborated with EGO PRIDE.

As a talented opportunist, PRIDO was fortunate to be on one of Daphne’s most recent freestyles with the female singer BESINDA.

We hope YXNG PRIDO maintains his momentum now that he has attracted some! 



Lill Humble

Unlike every other up-and-coming artist, he has released 10 singles, 1 EP, 1 studio album, 5 foreign collaborations, and his most recent song, “I Remember,” which has gained attention in both Cameroon and internationally. He is more than just an artist; he is the future of African hip-hop.

Officially called Lill Humble, he has been rhyming since 2014. But his professional Rap career began 2 years ago. He is from the Nso tribe in the North West Region of Cameroon and a proud Bamenda pikin




Remii has consistently given us good music for a while now, thanks to his signing to KANG QUINTUS MUSIC RECORDS.

He had a single last year called “Mon Amour” among other collaborations, with the song “Ma Vie” skyrocketing him to new heights. “Ma Vie” features the hitmaker Ko-c who is also a Cameroonian.

His most recent song Yayato with Boy TAG surpassed 17k views on YouTube within six days of release. That’s very impressive considering a record as such is a challenge for most musicians in Cameroon!

REMII has risen to fame because of his hard work and we hope he continues in that same light.




MARNICK is a female hip hop artist and songwriter born in Kumba in the South West Region of Cameroon. In 2016, she began singing professionally as a studio backup singer before moving on to make mashups of her favorite songs.

She launched her debut single, “PAJERO,” in 2019. The same year she was chosen as one of the up-and-coming artists to appear in Tzy Panchak’s “Put Your Hands On We” song challenge.

In 2022 She made a stunning reappearance with the song “Days Like This” by Mic MONSTA, which also featured Dready Christ, Torch City, and other members of her label. 

As of writing this post, her most recent song is “Redemption Song” released in November 2022. 

Marnick got the juice for sure and we are looking forward to seeing what she will do this 2023


Liya - new artists in the 237 music industry


LIYA AKA Lovegoddess is a fashion and art lover and a God-fearing and adventurous lady. She is the CAMACA Award winner for Best Female Artist in 2021 with tribal roots in Menchum Division of the North West Region of Cameroon.

Her song “Pay ma Money“, released in 2021 has amassed more than 55k views on youtube. Fans both in and out of Cameroon love this song.

The official video for her song “Sweet Sweet‘ was released in august 2022 and already has about 13k views. A drop in numbers when compared to her ” Pay ma money” single!

We look forward to seeing how she maneuvers 2023

 Today on our 237 Showbiz insight, issue #01, we talk about how A-List Artists shape the growth of the 237 music industry. They influence the upcoming ones too! But before we dig in, let’s get up to speed on the definition of an “A-List Artist”.


The phrase “A LIST artist” is commonly referred to musicians who have transcended from upcoming to established. They are normally very present in the micro aspects of the music industry.

They are Successful musicians who often produce and release music that broadly appeals to a wide audience. 

To become an A-List artist you must start from somewhere! You can’t be a pro without ever becoming a rookie. It takes growth for a music newbie to attain the matured and sustainable phase. We must set a datum level to build this post. Let’s look into how we can recognize growth in any upcoming artist.


To spot growth in the career of newbie musicians, we should be able to find changes in their mindset and thier day-to-day activities.

The musicians will need to be able to put forth a lot of effort and learn about the music industry from reputable sources to avoid being duped

They will need to play gigs to grow their fan base and network within their local neighborhood. 

They must be able to perform at every venue within their niche, and grow a potential fan base. 

Once they have a sizable fan base, they must be able to extend their circle away from their homegrown and strive to be the top musician there. 

They must be able to work towards Selling tickets, CDs, and merchandise, build a sizable fan base, and start learning how to interact with their audience with time. 

They should be able to obtain the email addresses of their fans and invite them to join their social media handle or sign-up for their websites. 

They ought to be able to inquire regularly about how their fans’ quality of life has changed.

Now let us look into how A-List artists shape our 237 showbiz industry:

In focusing on the 237 Showbiz industry, it’s critical to remember that this impact can be both beneficial and negative, as well as direct or indirect.


Positively speaking, most A-list Musicians of the Cameroon Music Industry whose principles and virtues are good tend to be seen as role models to the musicians coming up in the industry. They imply to aspiring musicians that, they too can succeed with their core values intact.

A-list musicians are more visible to opportunities than up-and-coming ones. Other countries regard them as Titans of the Cameroon music business. As a result, our industry is respected and praised for its growth.

A-List artists also have the potential to launch a novice musician into the spotlight. Thanks to thier success and experience, they know the right buttons to press. They also know the right doors to know at the right time.


A-list performers like MR LEO, JOVI, TZY PANCHAK, MIC MONSTA, etc are already well placed to support emerging or new artists! 

They know the inner workings of the music industry. Thier insights can enlighten newbies while helping them cross over to the milky side.

Collaborations with A-List artists can give a newbie musician a fighting chance in this new music era.

Some established musicians in the Cameroon music industry are money minded. They extort money from the newbies especially when they ask for help.

 They do awful things just to live up to the unrealistic expectations they already have set 

A-list artists into drugs or any other social ills affect the community negatively. While the up-and-coming musicians eager to blow tend to accept them as role models. This pushes the newbie musicians in the 237 music industry to end up as bad influences themselves rather than archiving the original visions they had before coming across their role models.

Some of these music giants are so self-centered with egos through the roof.

When all this manifest, then comes the effect we must deal with. Let’s look into a few of them below.

The Diy philosophy has been adopted in some form by the 237Showbiz industry, and many upcoming musicians now tend to hold fast to the “self-growth” approach to development rather than the “let’s hold hands” strategy. Courtesy of the industry’s worrying disloyalty to itself.

Over the years Cameroon has nurtured and raised a large number of talents. Some perished, while others grew. Despite the influence of well-known record labels, the younger generation does not appear to be headed toward the bright light that should be at the end of the tunnel.

Instead, they want to stabilize their careers through thier monopolized ecosystems. But still, we can say that the Cameroon music industry is going through a rapid period of transformation. More acts are coming up and even more determined than the last!

It might seem like we have drifted so much to a point of no return but there is hope. We all must make ourselves problem solvers and solution seekers. Let’s talk about solutions a bit in the coming section;

How should we resolve this?

Up-and-coming musicians must either construct a one-man guru quad or put together a dedicated group that will assist them in establishing themselves as prominent personalities in the industry. 

The up-and-coming artist must accept giving back to the community they represent as their prime obligation.

A list artist should learn to pass the torch. The 237 music industry is not a monarchy. They should pick retirement over dwindling like an overnight candle.

To prepare for retirement they need to groom thier successor.

Upcoming artists should understand that society owes nothing to them until they learn to give to society first. Thier sense of entitlement is annoying and only birth disgruntlement. Disgruntlement later turns to hate.

Upcomers should seek factual knowledge and avoid shortcuts. Looking for a quick shortcut to blow will make you end up on a gatekeeper’s dinner plate. Patience is a virtue one must acquire before one can succeed in everything.

Upcomers should understand that choosing music as a career is a life choice. They need the assistance of an A-list artist but if they can get it, they don’t have to cry about it!

Lady Ponce - How established musicians influence the growth of new ones - Blackstyle

Spoiler alert! Here comes the rant:

 If you think you need a bridge, start learning how to build one. If an A-list artist doesn’t “want to do” must you do the same to the people that come after you? In the absence of a bridge, defy the status quo and build your bridge so that those coming after you won’t have to. 

Be a leader and not a big crying baby. Cameroon is beautiful and full of opportunities. Stop adding to the problem and be a solution.

And to the A-List artist reading this post, you should be ashamed. The system you complain so greatly about what have you done to ameliorate it?

You want to be venerated and praised!

You want fans to fill up your halls and buy your tickets but all you think of is yourself. You are exactly the problem with the system you Speak about.

To the Upcomer reading this, be aware of your capabilities. People will fear what they don’t understand and I think most A-list artists fear you. They fear you because they think you are talented even more than them. They won’t give you a hand because they fear you will take thier place while making them relics of the past. They feed off attention and want the spotlight to stay on them. 

But they are not gods. They can bleed the same as you. They have everything to lose if they refuse to give you a helping hand while you have everything to gain if they don’t. They know your talent is enough to put them out of business and I urge you to do just that.

Put them out of business, but not with hate. Let love and your talents lead the way as you get ready to bulldoze every obstacle that comes your way. Either obstacle is making way for you or you are driving through it

We wish you the best.

Go into the world and blow. Also, Make sure you release more music this 2023.
