MMPR FOCUS: 6 FACTS ABOUT MYRA MAIMOH THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW NOW…

Always smiley and cheerful Myra Maimoh grew up within a big, Christian family in Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon with her mother being her greatest musical influence.

Influenced by her mother’s discs of Skeeter Davies, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, African blues and throughout the spectrum from country music, traditional African music to jazz and pop, Myra started singing and dancing, while still in preschool at the age of 3. She wrote her first set of songs and stories at the age of 13 and since then Myra’s music journey has grown from strength to strength.

On Saturday August 13th Myra is scheduled to release her follow up album entitled UNIQ and she just cannot wait for you to take a listen. So while we wait the for the release date to come, here are 6 facts you definitely should know about her!

Myra1(3)

  1. Myra is known to be kind of goofy. She grew up in a house with a whole lot of laughter even during trying times when there was really no reasons to laugh or goof about. In her family, they don’t seem to take themselves too seriously although devoted to hard work. When it’s time to be serious, they do that really well and the rest of the time they are full of goofiness which as Myra states “I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.”Oh well, a goofy artist is not bad at all is it?!!
  2. Always very smiley but you will be shocked to find out that Myra is known to be shy & reserved! Oh yes! However, when she is performing on stage all timidity and shyness fly out of the window! As a result, people who don’t know her very well usually either think she’s arrogant or too shy when they meet me for the first time. But after watching her on stage or knowing her more, they almost always ask this question – why did I ever think you were a quiet girl? Her response: beats me! [Haa haaa!!]
  3. Myra has 2 Masters degrees and she is an advocate for education especially for the girl child. Here is her story: at a point in her life, she wasn’t even sure she was ever going to be able to get even a Bachelors degree. Her family was going through some really turbulent times and they couldn’t quite afford a lot. The farther the dream was for her to go as far as she could with her education, the more resolved she was to get the best education. God opened door after door and before she knew it, she had not only a Bachelors degree from a great business school in Germany but also a Masters degree in International Management and another in International Business from another good university in the USA. “I know there are a lot of young girls back at home in Cameroon who probably won’t complete their studies and thus miss their chances to showcase their talent just because there is no one to help. Reason why I am a big advocate for educating the poor and hopeless because that was me at some point in my life.
  4. Myra loves food believe it or not – she loves trying out recipes, cooking and hosting. Her house is almost always full. She loves cooking all sorts of foods and usually has cooking competitions with her spouse. If it’s healthy, she will try it!
  5. Myra is an outdoor lover. If she could spend the whole day outside, that would make her ultimate day. She does like to wind down at home but the most fulfilling days for her is full days out with family and it mustn’t be full of adventurous things, she is happy with just walking for as long as she can.
  6. In case you only see her super glam side,  remember that Myra is a major tomboy! Till she was about 15, she played football with neighbourhood kids, wrestled, climbed trees, went hunting. Her mum had to do an intervention before she started acting like a  “Cameroonian girl” should! “I don’t even know what that means but found out it meant a lot to my mum.  I like photography and beauty shots only because it’s art but in reality, you will rarely see any makeup on my face. I think it’s overrated.” states Myra.

MMPR FOCUS: 5IVE MESSAGE EVOKED IN STANLEY ENOW’S SOLDIER LIKE MA PAPA DEBUT ALBUM…

SLMP

With the much awaited debut album only a few hours away before its official public release, Stanley Enow proves he is ready to enter into a new phase of his music career and to put to bed all that has been previously said about him since his outburst into the Cameroon limelight in 2013.

Soldier Like Ma Papa” as the album is titled is foremost an autobiographical piece, a special personal piece which salutes his father Papa Enow’s career in the Cameroon police force and the opening track of the album “Commandant Zao” is a befitting intro.

backcover

Soldier Like Ma Papa” also reinforces the message of hardwork, dedication, triumph, challenges and success – emotions/phases of life which practically every human being goes through / will go through at some stage. It is an album just as diverse in itself as Stanley Enow’s own talent and capabilities. With ragga/reggae inspiration to RnB to rap, there is something in this album to suit many a musical taste…

In light of the eminent release a few hours away, we dedicate our post to five message points that we picked up from the album.

1. THE AFRICAN FAMILY LIFE:

Right from the onset, Stanley Enow’s decision to kick off the album with “Hit The Road” featuring Bill Muicha reveals from the beginning the biggest responsibility shouldered by the children in the typical African home. We are all raised with the idea that our siblings, parents and even our extended family are our primary responsibility and once we are in a position to start providing, our duty of care to them also begins.

In “Hit The Road”, we see a young man who is prepared to accept his responsibility even though he himself is not in a comfortable position. He wants to elevate his family status, offer a plot for his mother, good school for a brother, hospital care for his grandmother – he is prepared to give the good things to his family to ensure their lives are better – he is prepared to go the extra mile because his status as a firstborn demands it.

2. CELEBRATING SUCCESS:

In the “King Kong” track and from the video which was shot in South Africa, Stanley Enow does not hide the fact that he is happy to celebrate his own success…where he is at in life and what he has achieved so far in his very short music career which includes multiple awards and big brand endorsements. “I’m not lucky but I’m blessed…Stanley Enow trong pikin for trong town…when these boys dem see me oh boy dem bow down.”

In “Have A Dream” featuring Bill Muicha we are also thrown into the world of an individual who goes from nothing to something, from despair to success and is also comfortable celebrating this change of fortune.

3. THE NECESSITY TO WORK HARD:

Le pere noel n’existe pas reste la tu dors ne travaille pas…work hard mehn ne tente pas…sinon you go remain for back…” “You can make it if you try – be something.” The message is all clear, hardwork according to Stanley Enow is a major key to one’s success and there certainly is no Father Christmas who brings free gifts. If only we should try, we can try to be successful.

4. THE DEPARTED LOVE:

We lived together, but I can’t hold you now, just wanna hug you now”…a love song directed at a departed love, a love we yearn for but cannot reach out to or touch because they are either too far away or they have been snatched away by the hands of death…a part of life that resonates with every human being at some point.

5. BEING PROUD OF YOUR ROOTS:

Of everything that can be said about Stanley Enow, one thing is certainly undisputed and that is Stanley Enow “Etangnti Moh Manyang” is very proud of his humble Mamfe and Bafoussam roots which he celebrates in his songs. The Bayangi boy from Manyu division in the South West Region makes no attempt to cover up his family life either “ma papa be na soldier, mami  be na presbyterian church elder…
