Stéphane Akam

Bio

I am Stéphane Akam, author, composer, performer and actor. I come from a country considered to be the cultural crossroads of Africa: Cameroon!! My music is the natural expression of my emotions in all their purity. A journey in which a mixture of sounds from here and elsewhere is perceptible. A universe in which I let my soul flourish freely to reach out to hearts available for listening. With shamelessness I let my fragility and my extreme sensitivity be expressed with an open heart. Of the dark state in which we live after the loss of a loved one, the hard blows of life in search of true love, I sing the hope of better tomorrows in rhythmic performances but also melancholy.

A lover of languages, I express my singing in Ghomala, Duala, Bulu, English or French.

He then made appearances on stage, from small musical competitions in the Bonaberi district to the university orchestra, followed by the phie scenes. biggest cabarets in Douala. Always carried away by the wind of music, in 2014 he began to producing on the stages of national festivals before deciding in 2015 to truly pursue a career in artistic field and produce his first album. Endowed with a suave voice, his wide range allows him to reach the highest notes while maintaining extreme sweetness. Overflowing energy and a depth that words cannot describe. He is also a fine interpreter of the greatest classics of world music. For the recording of his first album “Gae Yen”, he took into account the mobility difficulties of African artists and thus offers adaptable music both in acoustic format and in orchestral playing. A first attempt that transforms in a masterstroke, since “Che Woue”, the flagship track of the album, led him to be selected for the “AFRIMA (AIl Africa Music Awards)” in Ghana where he was nominated for “Best African song” and “Best male artist” as well as “Canal2’or.” This song is also requested by a luminary of Cameroonian music “Salatiel” to be covered as a duet. Stéphane Akam was recently a jury for the MutZigStar preselections and...
