MMPR’S STARS IN THEIR EYES: DEBRA DEBS

ModeMaison PR is a buzz loving communication and marketing agency based in Bonamoussadi, Douala. We partner, we promote, we encourage, we advise and we also develop initiatives of our own which we believe will also assist in carrying Cameroon forwards.

So today we are continuing with our initiative geared towards advancing the entertainment industry in Cameroon entitled “MMPR’s Star’s In Their Eyes”. With this, we will bring you individuals who we’ve watched and believe to exude the right quality and image to enter the emerging “celebrity” milieu in Cameroon.

London-based singer songwriter Debra Debs is next on our list and she has been in the music scene for 12 years now. She is also into Soulfulgospellyrnbjazzypopthingys – basically anything that makes for soulful listening with sounds firmly grounded in Neosoul and 90’s Soulful RnB. Her influences range from Jill Scott, Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, George Michael, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu to Musiq Soulchild.

Her 4 track debut EP released in 2011 entitled “WHUMAN” is sprinkled with socio-conscious, love versus pain, melodic story-telling drawn from the heart & soul and guaranteed to have listeners relating to it in every which way possible. This same socio-consciousness is the heart of her just released single and video “Africa Higher Higher” which currently stands at over 1.3 million views on Youtube…way to go girl!!

Do we have to say more about this girl? Check out her pics below and also see what she says in our “Star7” question!

1- A dog or a cat which do prefer?
Dog. I hate cats with a passion. Dogs are merciful, faithful and respectful. They work hard, unlike lazy cats eeuurrghh!!

2- The biggest lie you’ve ever been told is?
Hhhmmm. not sure I can remember. I have told white lies but the biggest? Naahhhh!!!

3- To love and to keep or to love and to lose?
I have loved and kept and lost. Losing is hard but easier if it was for the right reasons. So both work in my books either way.

4- How many lipsticks do you own?
Yup, just two. I am not a big shopper nor am I extremely adventurous with lipsticks.

5- Paris or Venice; which would be your lovers’ destination?
Venice any day. Its calmer, beautiful, peaceful and more loveable than Paris.

6- The title to your next song will be?
My next single is called Blew Your Mind.

7- How does an artist get 1 million plus views on a video?
Man…when I hit 100,000 I was overwhelmed. At 1 million I think I didn’t know how to feel. It’s incredible and empowering!!

FASHIONABLY KINEE!!

Hello blog world, we have been MIA for a few weeks but we are back!!

On the ever changing fashion front, Senegalese Kinee Diouf has become the first black model to grace the cover of Vogue Netherlands who a few months ago were in deep waters for painting a white model black on their cover.

Well, whether this a means of redempting themselves or not, we absolutely love the images taken by photographer Ishi. The overall styling, the vibrant loud contrasting colours, the shot angles, the choice of location all seemed to come together to present us with visually beautiful imageries. Well done to the team involved.

Below are some of the shots…enjoy!
