One thing about being an outstanding rapper is the strength of the MC. No matter how many new fans they have, no matter how many hits they have, they are still hungry. when they want to prove themselves most of them don’t go on twitter/Facebook. They settle it with bars. Thats basic hip hop lessons 101, you got something on yo chest? then get on the mic and spit it. To be great you need to set challenges, and work towards beating them. Social media has come and created their own artists, they can easily come back and forth on facebook and twitter and not a single record is released.. To make it, you have to spend endless time in the studio, and actually after release work hard in the streets to promote it. Music is not for everyone it is an occupation, it is not a try and see field. Now here comes a common word *HATER*, recently one cant easily have an opinion without being called a hater, this is very common with the upcoming artists and it is lame. That is so fragile, Rap is not a place to be soft….if you want to be soft go and do pop. Because rap is a battle ground, its always been that way. 237showbiz gathered a list of the Top 10 Best Cameroonian Rappers in the game, those whose handwork is difficult to go unnoticed.

He is the Cameroonian rap Messiah.

Comment…my top 10
1. Stanley Enow
6.B Spark(boy don chack)
Numba wan has to be numba eleven
bonus… yung time
Fake stuff Massa who’s side spido sadrake Na who Dem this sef fake stuff
Well explained but I think franco deserves a place on the list, equally based on num of fans Mahlox deserves a better place,No hard feelings buh Francophone based artist were kind of pushed back or ignored.
I appreciate ur hard work. But I think MIC MONSTA comes before Pascal. Jovi na God for Kmer Music
Good ranking but it’s true francophones are kinda pushed aside. Franko surely deserves a spot here. Meanwhile Ko-c isn’t supposed to be as on reserve bench. For God sake his got the most viewed vidoe ever from Cameroon on Y. Shout out to JOVI the KING
11. STANLEY ENOW (CUZ OF HIS AWARDS)
6. TATA & TILLA
5. MIC MONSTA
I don’t think Stanley has a place on that list. His lyrics are crappy he is constantly rapping out of rhythm and he has nothing as lyric conntain. He never say thanks to his fans when he has the opportunity. In fact he is a music joker and has been lucky this far. He needs to sit and make music.
Stanley Enow is an award manufacturer.
Awards based on votes can be faked equally.
It is a good list though I won’t see Jovi as first.
The absence of Franko makes it less popular.
the statistics is good jovi really deserve it and pascal too continue in that spirit
Great job. To me the list is OK but Franco was to replace Stanley Enow
Replaced Stanley enow my foot
its really good ranking but for me Stanley enow deserves the first position in the rankings
Is this an official ranking ???
Anyway any opinion counts and my list has KO-C as #1. The rest can come in any other
well.. your list is good..
but it could be modified by jovi maintainx #1
#4 stanley ENOW. ..
… for the rest five..
they gotta put in much work..
that’s mi opinion..
Pascal can leave the scene now for KOC
Mr blogger I have not been able to come across your blog I appreciate your work so far but your list of top 10 rappers in kamir is a whole lot of shit is it a personal relationship list or what how can you include Deecy in such what abt kamir lion ? Nami Nami cyrus or KO-C massa editam Abeg
Fair list love the factfact that jovi is number 1 but I’d rather replace Stanley enow with Crispy
Wow!!!! Great job. Am on my way, you can call me MC Budget. You will feel me soon.
Comment…jovi is the boss un this game,perfect selection
Perfect list but Stanley enow should be replaced by ko-c
I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!
‘I can bury all thise guys lyrically in one coffin,just check the name.Listen to PEROR – UNBREAKABLE by PEROR #np on #SoundCloud
my top 10 gs
mic monsta should be the fifiFirst and jovi 2nd
Comment…the list was good but could be better if Co z, Tilla, Young time were there instead of Enow and maahloux.
My own view on the top 10
4 Mic monsta
6 Mr Leo
7 Stanley Enow
well that’s good n I like that list but I guess Franco should replace Stanley enow
What about Big G
List is Ok to me eventhough i think maybe Tenor should be above Pascal cos he is crowd pulling and has a unique style They are both growing artists but Tenor myyyy he s cool , Stanley Enow equally for his awards should come closer, Minks and Maalox closer to , Pascal is good infact i expected more from him especially after the featuring in Check Sense so i wont rate him that much cos i expected more from him, But the one thing im not settled with is if you rated the artist as to per earnings, income or just the rap style and contribution into the rapword.
Comment…nice list, but what about
While for me
1 Stanley Enow
5 Mic Mosta
6 Boy Tag
7 M Pro
10 who ever
1. JOVI LE MONSTRE
4. MIC MONSTA
6. PASCAL & TILLA
7. MR BIGGS & STREET KING
8. BOY TAG / SKIDI BOY
9. KIKOH / NGOMA
theres the best rap-masters in cameroon. the others are still follow back.
To my best understanding of rap. Cameroon has not get better rapper so far than tennor and ko-c.
Comment…That was good but I thought #Bonzyz AKA the revolutionary hip hop artist should be in the list.his singles #myvoice and #findaway should be a gist in the kamer 237 industries.
I’m a stanley fan but I strongly agree with the list above…..thanks bro I think our stars and music are super relevant now
Emmmmh…the list was not that bad..substitute me Stanley enow with ko-C…
Comment…the list was perfect jovi deserved the first position but I don’t know why standly enow name is on that list he not a rapper he is a noise maker .in hundred years to come I don’t if they will be some who can replace jovi.
My top 10
1 stanley enow
4 jovi(he needs to work hard to gain his no 1 spot
5 mic monster
6 boy tag
“Well done,thank you” Jovi stays ,remains and dwells the number rapper of cameroon forever and stanley will dwell the last of the rapper of cameroon.Nothing else to say.
Good stuff here bro . But I think we need some editing here . Let’s be real here . If I may ask , does Stanley deserves to be in the list of top 10 Cameroon rappers ? Com’on my guy, this 1 no good at all . lol . Kocci has to replace Stanley Enow . Jovi is the king cuz of his peculiar way of rap . My respect to JOVI . And should with talk about good calloborators who sings , then u can put Stanley . I believe one on one free style , I can beat Stanley Enow in a rap battle .
Jovi u are the best . If any one can’t stand the heat , then they should get the f**k out .
its an Old list done 2 years ago
Yep. Pascal and Stanley Enow should not be in this list.
Jovi one of the Best rapper Cameroon will ever have …. Jovi Cameroon 2pac
You are right Stanley Enow can’t be here
Jovi, Pascal, Mic, KO C, Boi tag, Minks are….
