I heard her music sometime in Buea and loved it especially the album "Na weti be man". Her music is different from all the others because she neither, takes church hymns to turn them into an album nor does she plagiarize old songs. She is very original and creative. She blends the culture with the Bible messages to stir an awakening in the lives and souls of people that would automatically push them to God. I am thankful to God and to her producer who has given her the chance to excel. In addition, her music is danceable. Gospel music should not only end with marching songs. The economic stress in Cameroon warrants an uplifting of the spirit and Mandi’s music does just that. Mandi is in the same class with late Prince Nico Mbarga and the Rocafill Jazz band of musicians whose music fulfils the original purpose of music which was for pleasure, teaching and information. Sister Mandi, it is well with you!

I know we have may strides to make and I believe that our artists must strive for quality in every aspect of production. If we want to be noticed and our message to he heard, we will have to keep developing the quality of our product. Kudos to Mary Mandi for her contribution to Cameroon Gospel Music.

"When I got born again in 1975, I joined the church choir. It was from there that God singled me out. The Holy Spirit inspired me to transform people by singing the words of God."

Codswallop!!!

Danny Boy

The Post,
I thought you were going to be back as from the seventh. I could equally be making this remark with regards to the President's end of year messeage which you posted. True, but we should and must be careful to separate the wheat from the bran. Posting the President's speech is of National Interest, but posting this singing "born again" when you are supposed to be having a break?
"God scratch matches indeed." I suppose you need not ask me how I feel.

I wll be going on a bender next month, I hope you send the Bug to cover it!!!

Ma Mary

Check your dates, my friend. This is a 2006 story, that just happened to be searchable and accessible to our gospel-singing friend. Also true is the fact that Paul Biya's speech is of "national interest" to la Republique francais du Cameroun.

simplice

Many thanks Ma Mary, this diversion is principally by Anita who wanted to crown some vested publicity. Danny Boy,also carelessly sings lampoons at the Post without scrutiny.
Mrs Anita, please look for an appropriate medium for your publicity.

Ma Mary

Simplice I think the young lady should have a little bit of free publicity. A lot more poisonous things are said here. What harm would it do? I think I am actually going to buy her CD, and I encourage you to do the same.

I took the time to read Anita's bio. You see, her ancestors came from Bafia in la Republique's central province, but she grew up in the Southern Cameroons an attended Saker in Victoria. By all rights she is a Southern Cameroonian, unless she chooses otherwise. What people often do not understand is that citizenship has nothing to do with family, race, religion or national origin. I would not be surprised if Mrs Anita Etta is an American citizen, but that does not mean that her roots disappear. But, at this time, people should think carefully and choose wisely, because a lot of changes are going to happen as the Southern Cameroons liberation train moves into overdrive and maturity. Ahidjo created a distinction called the 11th Province as a way to entrap certain Southern Cameroonians and quite a few took the bait because of opportunistic impulses. Our advice is not to split the difference, not to fight the legitimate Southern Cameroons drive to freedom.

Moreover, whatever her choice, music is music.

Happy New Year.

simplice

Ma Mary Many thanks for the wise words.

Anita

Ma Mary thanks for taking a positive outlook on my comments. As a cameroonian living abroad, it was great stumbling on a forum where there happened to be some commentary on gospel music. As an artist it is customary for me to sign off with my contact details and it provides transparency and a context as to why I shared my excitement with the work of Mary Mandi. I know that some people will always be quick to misjudge but that's alright. To Mr simplice, my comment to you is; "God bless you, no harm intended,the stage is all yours" Much respect to this forum.

Anita

Danny Boy

Ma Mary and Simplice,
Happy New Year. My reaction to this posting was borne out of frustration! Having to wait until the seventh, only to see this pop up before the seventh!!
I may not write that often, but the fact is I try to visit the forum every or every second day!
Simplice, I like your expression, "Danny Boy,also carelessly sings lampoons at the Post without scrutiny." Sings lampoons? Great stuff, my man! This is definitely one for the notebook.
My only weord of advice to you Simplice, stop sitting on the fence. You have got a lot to contribute.
A fantastic New Year to all forum mates.

Franklin Abia`

If I have to start talking about Sister Mary Mandi's songs especially the first album, then this page will not be enough. When I was very small and at the age of about 13years old, I had the first album on a cassette when cds were not available in Cameroon. I enjoyed that album so very well. the album "Na weti be man" is the best. Please, I need to get that album, Please Sis. Mary Mandi or the producer, if anybody has it, please contact me through 94789221, I live in Buea.
