Only 8 days left from the total 18 days counts down for Locko’s debut album, The Bridge.
In a means to keep the anticipated fans in high spirit, Locko released a one minutes video on Instagram with the names of featured artists in his upcoming album.
Mostly made up of already big names in the industry and few yet to break names, the list features 10 artists with one international name.
We don’t yet know the number of records in the album but from the long list of features in the album, the number of records is probably of good number.
As a matter of fact, we are expecting fresh and new hits and not yet released tracks in the album as in the case of other album in the country.
The album features:
Within the his label, Big Dreams Entertainment, he features Krys-M, a sensational vocalist signed last year on the label. I know many will ask where is KO-C or why not KO-C but KO-C is also included. Locko and Krys-M has never had any collaboration. This is their first record since they started working together last year. Krys-M is a young and very talented artist and meeting with someone like Locko,the world will discover how big her talent is.
To seal the existing friendship with R.E.G.N, he brings in Nabila, one of Cameroon ‘s upcoming queen in the industry. Nabila has two songs (Cą Ira and Prend Ma Main) doing great in the country. The lone artist under the French based record label, R.E.G.N has won the hearts of many fans especially in the French part of the country . Locko and Nabila has never feature on any record. This is their first meeting.
On the international market, he knocks the door of multiple award wining Ivorian zouk goddess, Teeyah. Teeyah is a big name in the African music sphere. She has had mega hits that touched every living soul during her reign in the continent as the best french singer. If Locko had to think of her then the super star is a huge fan of the amazingwoman. This is also their first collabo.
When Locko’s hit song “Je Serai La” was released last year, the label organized a competition for best covers . The competition was a hard one and only the bravest had to win. Surprisingly, a teenage student at the College Les Sapins -Yaounde, called Roche Dombou won it. What can role model do to his fans rather dining with them. Locko to show his love and appreciation to the kid, has added her to the list of the ten artists to feature in his album. This is big of Locko and his love for young talents.
Last year, KO-C, one of Cameroon’s “fastest” rapper made way into the den of the Big Dreamers in the industry, Big Dreams Entertainment. To introduce him to the French market and to the world, Locko was called to add his powers and pull his fans toward the new label kid and a song was recorded and shot. That was the beginning of KO-C and his official intrusion in the French market. Since then his name has been among the list of rappers in Cameroon. Definitely not the first time they are meeting but probably the second time they are having a song together.
Cameroon witnessed a good number of break through artists last year and among them was the duo, One237 (Blurr and Max). As a means to add to their hard work, Locko has added them to his ten man list of artists on his album. This is probably the first time Locko is working with the talented boys.
Not for anyone to see it as a pay back because Magasco had Locko on his 14 tracks album “Golden Boy” released last year, but because they two started grinding in the same city, Yaoundé and have also come a long way. Locko calls Bamenda boy, Magasco to come add energy on the building of the bridge they all started the construction works together by doing covers for each other’s song back in the days. These two artists are probably having their second track since they became friends.
Mr.Leo’s name rings bell whenever it is call. Their first record meeting Locko and Mr.Leo was on Supporter, a song that led Locko to the Afrima Award last year in Nigeria wining him best collabo. Away from records, they both have shared same stage many times in the country and on international arenas. Another collabo coming from the two, you all know what it means.
