More than a week ago, Iyunade blog got a Facebook Live with one of Cameroon’s finest rappers, Wan Shey. The rapper, who raps in English, French, Pidgin English and Lamnso (language of the Nso people – a trible in Bui Division of the North West Region of Cameroon) is also an executive of Sabiboy Records, a song writer, freelance translator and entrepreneur.
Wan Shey was born on November 8, 1988 in Tatum, Kumbo, the North West Region of Cameroon. He officially launched his music career with his first single “Wuna Morning” that was produced by Iron Bitz and visuals by TGIM Pictures.
Some months ago, he came out as the winner of the KamerFEST Fan Pick Contest. The KamerFEST Music Festival took place from September 28-30 2018 in Atlanta USA. The music contest which started on June 11, 2018 and ended on June 16, 2018 saw Wan Shey emerge winner after his video received the most Facebook ‘Likes’.
Wan Shey, on a Facebook Live with Iyunade Blog claims he has not received the prize for winning the KamerFEST music contest. He also says the organizers are still to contact him after he won the contest which he said he didn’t make it for the event because he had problems obtaining a visa. However, he said even though things did not workout, he was expecting the organizers to at least get in touch with him.
The 2018 KamerFEST Music contest winner, Wan Shey said he feels disrespected by the organizers.“What I can say is I feel disrespected,” he said. He says he needed some form of compensation for winning the competition. To him, it wasn’t an easy task to gather fans to vote him. He said he took close to a month to garner votes from fans, whom he considers as family, only for the organizers of the competition to stay mute afterwards.
However, Wan Shey says he is still expecting the organizers of the KamerFest Music Festival to get to him with some sort of a consolatory prize. Says he owes his fans an explanation.
“I owe my fans an explanation, concrete ones for that matter,” Wan said. He thinks they may still get back to him at some point. He was not really hard on them as many may have been thinking.
What may have gone wrong with the organizers of KamerFEST Music Festival? Fans of Wan Shey and the general public should be expecting an answer from the organizers. Don’t hesitate to drop your comments below.
