sama tanya calee video

Sama Tanya instantly became Cameroon’s sweetheart after landing a model gig on Daphne’s popular “Calée” music video in March 2017. Nearly eight months later, the sexy dark skin model and digital marketing expert is dishing on his life as a now famous video vixen.

In an exclusive interview with Dcoded TV, Sama Asongtia Tanya describes his experience as mind blowing but admits that his newly found fame was expected given Daphne‘s status.

“Most people now refer to me as ‘Mr. Calée’ and its fair. I don’t blame them or get hurt by that. In fact, I feel honored instead. However, I am also a digital marketer, founder of, a model and fashion lover,” Sama explains.

To buttress his point, the very charming and friendly hunk acquired a degree in Marketing from the University of Dschang as well as a Higher National Diploma in Marketing from the University Institute of the Gulf of Guinea.  However, he says he loves the attention showbiz is giving him and plans to make the most out of it.

1. How is life after Calée Video?

I would say I have a lot of fans and admirers now than later. Some people even think I am not from Cameroon. Brands also want me to associate with them. Movie directors have also approached me to act in their films. Over all, I think Calée video has given me a wide exposure.”

2. Did you think being a vixen would give you so much popularity?

Yes! I knew I could be exposed to a huge fan base after that video because Daphne is one of Cameroon’s leading artists with a large fan base. So, it only normal. But I am also humbled by the love I received.

3. When did you fall in love with modeling and fashion?

My love for fashion and modeling dates back to when I was just a kid. I used to always admire men who dressed well and men who embodied so much class. My friends used to call me ‘stylist’ when I went to the University. As I grew up, fell in love with fitness, people will tell me I’ll make a good model because of my dark skin tone, sculpted cheek bones and good physique. I believed it but never ventured into it until recently.

4. What’s the best part of being a model?

I get to wear free stuff (lol). On a serious note, I get the chance to work with some of the best fashion designers for men’s wear in the country. I have worked with designers like Men’s Wear Management, Louis Fame, Amah Bertrand, and Visco Ngenge. I’ve been able to work with good photographers like Studio 89. However, what threw me into the limelight is my appearance in Daphne’s music video.

5. Which designers would you also love to work with?

I have always dreamed and loved to work with brands like PUMA, Calvin Klein, Mai Atafo, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and others like Guinness, CIROC and Veuve Cliquot. It might take time but I know with God, everything is possible.

    I just wonder why designers are not making use of this fellow. All these female musicians should be scrambling for him as well. I mean, Terrence Howard has been used by Mary J Blidge and Ashanti. Michael Early too has been used by Beyonce etc. Make use of this man please. He’s good for business. TV or music buisness
