Irma, the new musical Cameroonian star

Irma, the young singer-songwriter from Cameroon is nominated at the MTV Europe Music Awards in the section "Best French Artist."

After the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony who took place last September at the Staple Center of Los Angeles, the MTV Europe Music Awards will take place in Franckfurt in Germany this November 2012.

Irma is nominated in the section best French artist with other artists such as Tal, Shaka Ponk, Orelsan and Sexion D'Assaut. Fans can vote until November 9. Let's support Irma  at

Born in Douala and originaly from Bangante in West Cameroon, Irma lands in Paris in 2003 to further her secondary education.  As a teenager back in Cameroon, Irma wrote songs. She would pinch her dad’s guitar and invent luminous lyrics and tunes to reflect the patchwork of love, affection and faith that made up her life. Once she had built up the courage, the young woman spoonfed on the likes of Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton and Ben Harper posted her compositions on the web.

Letter to the Lord, her first album, is a promising offering of sensuous melodies, catchy chorus lines and an intimate atmosphere played out on piano, guitar and vocals. What Irma now needs is to achieve the mark of originality and signature of the soul that will take her out of mainstream soul-r‘n’b.

Five powerful African women

Forbes has just released the official list of the world's 100 most powerful women of 2013. I am not sure which criteria Forbes experts used. Based on the list, they have probably included criteria such financial or diplomatic influence. However, I was disappointed to notice the insignificant representation of African women on the list. This may be partly explained by the background of those in charge of the selection.
