Cameroonian music Star, Mr Leo pays a working visit to Nigeria.
He has been called a ‘Music god’ and ‘The voice of Gold”. His music is hitting across Africa like a tornado.
And now, Cameroon’s biggest music star, Mr Leo has arrived in Nigeria for his first ever media tour in the country.
Signed to his producer Salatiel’s AlphaBetter Records, the multi-award winning singer released his first ever single ‘E go better’ only in 2015 – a debut that has scored over a million views on YouTube. Since then, he has released 14 hits, back to back, taking over the Central and West African market with songs like ‘Jamais Jamais’ “Partout” and ‘On Va gerer’, and gathering altogether over 100 000 000 YouTube views. He sings and English, pidgin English and French. He also writes for other artists, and his credential includes one of Africa biggest songs of 2017, ‘CALEE’ by Daphne.
Barely two years in the game, Mr Leo is already a Guinness-Orijin Ambassador as well mobile telephone company, iTel Ambassador. He has also won 13 awards in total.
He performed his hit collaboration ‘Supporter’ with Locko at the last AFRIMA Awards in Lagos, Nigeria. He was impressed by the energy of the Nigeria industry, and has decided to return.
Mr Leo said: “Cameroon and Nigeria not only have cultural, geographical and historic ties – but our music industries are also intertwined. The biggest African song “Sweet Mother” was by Prince Nico Mbarga, a Cameroonian–Nigerian, and what made the song so big was the influence of the two musical cultures.
“There have been recent collaborations between Cameroon and Nigeria, but the Cameroonian industry has also grown very big; today its stands on its own feet and it’s time to expand that collaboration into more shows and exchange programmes.
“After all I’ve achieved back home and across Francophone Africa, I felt a need to come into Nigeria and expand the possibilities. Cameroon supports Nigerian music massively and we believe it’s time to start reciprocating that love and support, so that African music can grow bigger and richer for everyone.”
In December 2017, Mr Leo released his debut album LOVE ORIGINAL, which is available on iTunes.
His last single, ‘Je suis desolee’ was shot in Paris by popular music director, SHELIS.
