AFRIMA 2018: Blanche Bailly, Daphne battle for Best Female Central Africa crown

Blanche Bailly versus Daphne: Who’s the better singer for Africa?

Just so we are not confused, these two are friends but Daphne and Blanche Bailly‘s friendship will be tested at the 2018 Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) in Lagos when both go head to head for the ‘Best Female Central Africa’ crown. Who will win and should one do, will the other send her a public congratulatory message?

The battle is on and two of Cameroon’s top female music acts will be at each other’s throat for the crown as the best female music act in the central African region. Daphne and Blanche Bailly, alongside Charlotte Dipanda are all repping Cameroon in this category and fans are ready to cheer just one to the throne.

There’s no denying the fact that Daphne has had an incredible year in 2018. With back-to-back hit singles, a rebranded image and more international shows, the Steven’s Music queen seems likely to win but who says Bailly is incapable of giving her a serious run for her money?

Daphne was also eligible for the crown last year but was defeated by Montess,  a win which many including Salatiel, considered non-deserving. Well, Bailly could be this year’s Montess as well.  The pop singer has, almost single handedly raised her music career to the top.

Bailly did not only released a hit song, Bon Bon’, this year but the video hit a million views with little or no promotion. She also clinched a one month European tour which also saw her go under the knife for a new pair of boobs. That alone got her all the attention she needed. She clearly stands a huge threat to Daphne‘s hopeful win this year.

Both singers are remarkably talented and have registered huge wins this year as far as putting out big songs are concerned. Both are also very beautiful and determined to take the music scene by storm. But in this case – AFRIMA – there can only be one winner! Who will it be?

#Dcoders, who would you love to win the AFRIMA 2018 Best female Central Africa award: Daphne or Blanche Bailly?

    Blanche to the freaking Bailly!
    She totally deserves it. She runs things all by herself, no record label.

    If Montess could win last year, then Shura stands a chance. It all depends on how many vote each gets. So, I’m not underestimating anyone.

    Who are the others on that list? We are all focused on these two or our Cameroonian artists. What if all of them lose?

    Charlotte Dipanda should not be mixed in this group. She is not their level
