1) What city are you currently in and what do you love most about this city?
I am currently based in Douala, Cameroon. I really do love my city. Douala is Cameroon’s economic capital. My city is so friendly to everyone especially to foreigners. There is a very rich local cuisine that makes life beautiful and chilled.
2) Your favourite hangout spot in your home town is?
I love hanging out in cool, calm and discreet spots. As a public figure I have very little private life. So when I chose to hang out I prefer discreet sports. One of my favourite spots is Lynks at Bonapriso in Douala. I go out very few times.
3) A song that perfectly describes your country right now?
So many songs could describe my country right now. One of the songs that could best describe my country right now is my planetary hit single, HEIN PERE. My country is in need of unconditional unity due to our great diversity. HEIN PERE was sung in various languages: ENGLISH, FRENCH and our most popular lingo, PIDGIN ENGLISH, that enabled my message to reach the general public simultaneously.
4) What is on your music playlist currently?
Actually, I listen to a variety of music ranging from Hip Hop to RNB, House, Gospel etc. I have songs like Drake’s God’s Plan, Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow, Major Lazer & DJ Maphorisa’s Particular featuring Nasty C, Jidenna, Ice Prince and Patoranking, my two songs Caramel featuring Davido and Adore You featuring Mr Eazi, yeah!
5) What are you reading?
Generally, I read magazines in search of information in various domains: entertainment, business and politics.
6) What would you say is the biggest artistic impact Africa has had on the world?
African music is rapidly expanding and gaining grounds worldwide and real quick. That makes me proud and happy because opportunities therefore get to multiply for us in the music business and in other forms of business related to African music.
The current Afro Beat movement from Africa to the world is doing wonders. African music is being played all over Africa and in most parts in Europe, Asia and America. African acts like Richard Bona, Charlotte Dipanda, Davido, Fally Ipupa, Mr Eazi, Wizkid etc have done a great job in that regards.
Today the world is gradually but definitely turning towards African music. Africa is the future.
Listening to my music Caramel featuring DAVIDO being played during half time at NBA Games, Dallas Mavericks, is a sign of victory for Africa. Slowly but surely Africa is making major moves.
Africa will be the future very soon in all domains: entertainment, business, politics, trade and industry etc.
7) What is that one African dish you wish the entire world knew about?
I wish the entire world knew about Fufu and Eru. That’s our traditional meal that’s best cooked by my mum.
8) What does your name mean?
My real names are EBAI ENOW STANLEY. EBAI means POWER and ENOW means CHIEF. That means I am a POWERFUL CHIEF. So I can say I am a powerful chief.
9) If you had one super power what would it be and why?
I would like to be invisible when I want to. Life as a super star is not easy. It becomes very hard to have a private life completely out of public eyes.
10) If you weren’t a famous musician what would you be?
If I was not famous I will probably be a journalist or I would have been a creative in a communication agency. Anyways – it’s all God’s making.
