With the advent of and the growing power of social media, publicity seems to have overshadowed talent. There are people with extreme talent but are overshadowed by over-hyped people with less to no talent. There are many people with rising fame in Cameroon’s entertainment industry but have accomplished nothing or are absolutely talentless. Kinnaka’s Blog takes a look at the over-hyped Cameroonian celebrities.
- Nathalie Koah
Were it not for Samuel Eto’o’s appetite in beautiful women, the world might never know Nathalie Koah. The pair allegedly dated ‘undercover’ for 7 good years. However, the relationship became public knowledge following a bad break up which involved Nathalie’s nude photos, leaked online. The media coverage of the scandal is what gave Nathalie Koah the celebrity status she is enjoying now.
2. Coco Emilia
Coco Emilia aka Biscuit de Mer is one of the most followed female Cameroonian celebrities on Instagram. She may have been recently named as face of Bold Makeup, dabbled in fashion a little bit, but you know what really made her famous? Dating footballers and diplomats. Yup, that’s it. Some say she’s like an exquisite piece of furniture that you can sleep with. Well, now that she’s a ‘business woman’, she can stand on her own, but, man, that origin story, am I right?
3. T. Pana Wynchester
T. Pana Wynchester is one of those people who seems to be arguably famous in English-speaking Cameroon, but you’re never quite sure why. However, he has appeared in a couple music videos but besides that, his resume is slim. One thing that fans of T. Pana Wynchester can count on, is his ability dress up good. The Buea-based star just recently launched his own brand of t-shirts and hats called #TeamStayFreshAndClean (#TSFAC). We wish him the best!
