Wand People, cameroonian singer Daphne is back with her first “E.P.” named Reflection. A sweet journey through love and it’s tribulations accompanied by a magnificient voice made in Cameroon.
Daphne was introduced over 3 months ago to the music world as “The Next Big Thing” out of Cameroon. Her first single “Rastafari” lived up to all expectations and is still in rotation on TV and Radio stations around the world.
Having established herself as an “uncompromising vocalist”, Daphne is back with three new songs off her forthcoming album. The songs show Daphne’s versatility as her vocals ride effortlessly on a Pop/Dancehall beat on “Reflection”, a soulful Afro-pop beat on “Broken” and a Makossa-Zouk infused beat on “Ndolo”.
Daphne says about the first song “Reflection” :
Reflection is about love redeemed…it’s about forgiveness and allowing love to come back to you. The song tells the story of a lover who is around when things are good and goes away when “things dem bad…” .
The best part of the song is when Daphne asks her runaway lover to “come right away, bring all your pain along let’s burn it down …”
The theme of love continues on “Broken”, a song about a girl who’s been hurt and left broken-hearted.
“This song is a chapter in everyone’s love book,” says Daphne. “Especially for girls…(she laughs)…you want to love again but you are so scared…’cause you are broken”.
Her third single seems to be a solution for the first two. After being jilted on “Reflection” and left “Broken”, Daphne turns to the “food of the soul…the reason why we laugh, the reason why we cry, the reason why we smile, the reason why we live” – Ndolo (Love). She personifies love as God. “God is so beautiful, and will always be the pillar of my being,” says Daphne. “I turn to God for everything” she continues.
My message with the three songs is simple. “When you feel let down and broken into pieces, you need to reflect…reflection will lead you to the truth, will lead you to love… to God (Ndolo)”.
Daphne continues to work on her debut album to be released in 2015. These songs will continue to showcase her as a force to reckon with in the Cameroon and African music industry. The maestro AnyKindBeats produced all three songs with Shan and Oga doing additional production on “Ndolo”.
