AkuBai’s live EP ‘The genesis’ came like a thief in the night. Released in the month of August, the critically acclaimed EP exposed the singer’s deft, beautiful, imaginative, and brilliant songwriting when it comes Gospel songs and refixes. It circles around the Gospel of Christ, forgiveness, Truth and peace.

I personally think Mink’s is underrated 😞 his diversity and talent this year has been nothing but exceptional. Earlier this year 2021, Mink’s released a rap freestyle which was later followed by his album ‘Urban Bantu’
The 15 tracks album which cuts across Afrobeats, Bensikin and pop culture made it to numerous billboards around the streets of Douala, Yaoundé, bertoua and got playlisted in numerous playlists.

His Debut album, “Illusions” is widely accepted by many music enthusiasts which have birthed his hit song “Charlene” with millions of streams across all platforms in the space of eleven months.
Cysoul has adhered to utilize his grand and buzz which is working transcendently for him.
3) Mr Leo – Lion of Africa ( Jeéy).
I know it’s quite a shocker seeing Mr Leo’s second Studio album “Lion of Africa” taking the fourth position is a list that comprises many albums as the 4th.
Well, considering the Grammy Standard which Mr Leo is a student, factors used in selecting and ranking albums, Mr Leo’s Jeéy album took it’s rightful position, as it clinged on to the 2nd best albums released in 2020 on Kimbi blog.
The 13 tracks album was released on the 17th September 2021, and had international celebrities like Francis N’gannou, Dj Fredy Musk, Victoria Kimani and more.
2) Charlotte Dipanda – CD.
Charlotte Dipanda moved to showcase her music consistency with the release of her Studio Album tagged “CD“.
The album which was released on the 26th of February, 2021 turned out to be a well-put-together body of work with all tracks showing Charlotte’s vocal power and singing skills. The album is no doubt a reflection of how Charlotte has evolved from ground to the top live Top star act she is.
1) Salatiel – Africa represented.
The album has so far gotten positives reviews from music critics on the media spaces. Listeners have hailed Salatiel’s work ethic and stating the album is amazing.
The project is admirable to see Salatiel balance his signature sound with hints of exploration in collaboration such as “Africa represented” song featuring CFX all while remaining true to his African culture.
The level of acceptance from fans in diaspora and home made the album trend for several weeks and also listed as the most streamed Cameroonian album on Spotify. It had featuring from several African artist including Sauti Soul and Teni.
