‘Montess didn’t deserve AFRIMA win’ – Cameroonian artists react

afrima 2017

Montess’ huge All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA)  win comes under fire from her fellow Cameroonian music colleagues.

Montess beat Reniss, Ewube and Mimie to grab the  2017 AFRIMA Award for “Best Female Artist in Central Africa” for the song “Love Witta Gun Man” and some Cameroonian artists as well as fans are now claiming the singer didn’t deserve the win!

Some Cameroonian music superstars are low key pissed that  Reniss and/or Ewube were passed over for the gong despite dropping some huge singles between 2016/2017. We are not sure if Montess was also shocked when her name was called above her fellow colleagues but its in deed a fact that she is the winner!

The “DJ Play My Song” hit maker said she was “so happy and proud” of her big win on Sunday night in Lagos but not everyone is sharing her joy.

Alpha Better Records boss, Salatiel was the first to kick against Montess‘ victory on his Facebook wall, November 12. Followed by music video director, Adah Akenji and so many others. Take a took.


Salatiel casts doubt over Montess’ AFRIMA 2017 victory


Did Dianee of Rythmz forget to appreciate Montess’ AFRIMA 2017 win?


Video director Adah Akenji thinks Montess didn’t deserve a win?

So, if Montess‘ song,  “Love Witta Gun Man” was released in October 2016 and the AFRIMA 2017 award show focused on songs released under the year in review 2016/17, why then are fans so PUMPED?

Check out “Love Witta Gun Man” video below and tell us what you think about Montess’ AFRIMA victory below.

    Which one is “deserve to win”. Montess got nominated, that alone means she has a chance to take the trophy. Chai! Cameroonians, na really true se Jesus wasnt recognized in his hometown. Disgrace for swine!

    Montess obosso! You are finally trending !
    All these so-called entertainers bringing you down are only doing u a favour…. They are making you even more popular. Now, pipo weh no know you before, know you now.
    Its a shame to see singers that young musicians look upto post such nonsense on Facebook about someone’s moment. Kanye did it to Taylor Swift, look what has happened to his music career. Wuna continue oh. Well done sirs!

    If she didnt derserve to win, she wouldnt be nominted. Period.
    If your favourite artists didnt win, it means she didnt scout for enough votes. Take defeat and shut your mouths.Haters are real!

    I am beyond shocked! Salatiel, i didn’t know you were this jealous and greedy! A leader isnt supposed to act this way and then speak of togetherness and growth. Its really a shameful thing to see you come at a young singer like this just because she won an award she was nominated for. If you had something to say, why not say to the organizers? Why do all you can to ruin another artists’ big moment like this? I have lost respect for you bruh!

    AFRIMA is not about Popularity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    She asked her fans to vote for her and they did. It wasnt about who had the most popular song. To see Salatiel come out like this, instead of support her and then slam the organizers, makes him a COMPLETE IDIOT! I really thought he had brains in his head but its obvious he is full of jealousy and envy. SHAME on you and the rest who think Montess didnt deserve this.

    Locko wins and francophones support him 100%. Even if he won against bigger names in African music. But Montess wins, her own music friends slam her on social media. Tell me how Anglophones want to grow? Why not wish her well and even work with her to give her that “deserving” win next time?

    Salatiel went live yesterday claiming he had a problem with the organizers and not Montess but his post doesnt sound like that. He clearly threw Montess under the bus just because he wished someone else, who is more popular should have won. This is a bad sign. Why not support the poor girl? Why insult her victory like this in public? If Askia won in a category with Nicki or Cardy B, would he come and say she doesnt deserve it? This is rude and stupid

    I am totally disappointed in Salatiel and Adah. What are leaders for? Why does Montess look up to you guys as mentors or big brothers?

    Honestly, Monetss didnt deserve to win but i am happy for her. Now i know her and have been watching her video on Youtube since Monday. She is a good singer.

    Another tzy Panchak moment revisited! Funny enough, both rising acts who have been bashed by the same people are really really talented. So what has deserve got to with Montess win if she got nominated? Who cares? She is a cameroonian and we need to support and encourage her.
