1- Hello Gasha.It is a pleasure talking to you again

The pleasure is mine, always great to be here talking to this great blog..

2- You were away from the country for a while.Could we ask why?

After my official singles and my departure from my former label, I went through a very difficult moment. At that point in time I needed to leave Cameroon to take a break from all that was going on around me. I went to the States so that while clearing my head I could learn new things, meet major players in the music world, meet people with different cultures and nourish my inspiration.It took the time it did but I got back rejuvenated.. more inspired and ready than ever.
3-From time to time some people try to compare you to Daphne.What do you have to say abut that?
It’s only normal that people should, based on the fact that I was with the label she is in now. And we are two female Cameroonian urban artisst. Personally I don’t believe in comparison cause that drifts you off your Lane and focus. I rather liken myself to people who inspire me like Lana Del Rey, Tracy Chapman and Susan Vega. But am sure lots of media outlets profit from stories like that to get traffic, which I don’t mind cause on a personal level between us that comparison dose not exist.
4-Would you ever collaborate with Daphne if the opportunity presents itself?
Why not ? Sure will.
5-We reported a story that had to do with you collecting money from an event organizer(RATU) and not attending her event to perform.How true is that?
Its totally false.
First of all RATU is a fraud who came to Cameroon and felt like she was more superior and smarter than us so she could walk over us.Her Scam of RATU festival didn’t only hurt me, but lots of other Cameroonians who dedicated their time to work with her.
Am sure that your blog will definitely investigate and come up with the real story of this con artist.
1. RATU ERMA YUSUF NEVER PAID MY TICKET TO CAMEROON AS SHE CLAIMED NOR DID I RECEIVE ANY MONEY FROM HER TO PERFORM AT HER EVENT.
2. SHE USED MY BRAND TO PROMOTE HER SCAM OF AN EVENT WITHOUT MY PERMISSION WHILE WE WERE STILL CARRYING OUT NEGOTIATIONS. THE MINUTE THAT WAS DONE SHE STOPPED REPLYING MESSAGES FROM MY TEAM.
3. TO PROTECT MY BRAND AND IMAGE I DIDN’T WANT TO SIT IN THE STATES AND DISAPPOINT ALL MY FANS WHO WERE ANXIOUSLY WAITING FOR ME TO PERFORM.
AT THIS POINT I WAS ONLY IN CONTACT WITH CHANTAL AND ZAC OF XL STUDIOS WHO AT THE TIME WORKED WITH HER.THEY WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE FROM THE RATU TEAM WHO WERE RESPONSIVE. THEY BOTH PERSONALLY PAID MY FLIGHT TICKET AS THEY FELT SHE WAS JUST OUT OF CASH AND STRESSED.
ON MY ARRIVAL IN CAMEROON, I WENT TO THE HOTEL WHERE I WAS TO BE LODGED. SHE SHOWED UP AND COMPLETELY IGNORED ME AND MY TEAM. ONCE MORE CHANTAL AND ZAC TOOK ON THE CHARGES FOR MY ACCOMMODATION AND UPKEEP IN CAMEROON.
AFTER THE DEMAND FOR ME AT THE EVENT BY FANS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND AT THE EVENT, THE PRESSURE WAS ON HER.SHE CALLED ME AND SAID I HAD TO PERFORM ON THE LAST DAY. I ASKED FOR AN ADVANCE BEFORE I COULD PERFORM (WHICH IS ONLY NORMAL). ALL HELL BROKE LOSE. SHE SENT ME A VOICE NOTE THREATENING ME.. TELLING ME SHE WAS SEEING SOME TOP GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND SHE WAS GOING TO GO TO THEIR OFFICES, STRIP NAKED, CRY AND PUT UP A SHOW FOR THEM AND I WILL BE ARRESTED.
SHE SWORE TO DO ANYTHING TO BRING ME DOWN. I LAUGHED OVER THAT.I DIDN’T CONTACT HER AND REPORTED THE INCIDENT TO MY LAWYER WHO IS AWARE OF THIS.
IN CAMEROON , WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AS AN INDUSTRY CAUSE THERE IS A TENDENCY FOR FOREIGN INVESTORS TO COME IN HERE WITH LITTLE CASH AND LOTS OF BIG TALK AND PUT US AGAINST EACH OTHER..
WE SHOULD NEVER LET THIS HAPPEN. RATU WAS A SCAM REASON WHY WE HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT IT AGAIN.. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SECOND EDITION? OR THIRD ? THERE WAS NO FOLLOW UP GUESS WHY? IT WAS A SCAM.
6-We also wrote one time that you are dating Rapper and media personality,Nabil Fongod.Do you have anything to say about that?
NOPE
7-You have been releasing new music since you came back.Should we be expecting an album from you?
Yes, I dropped ‘Ma Kong Wa’ in the states before I came.
Then  I dropped Still Dey Ft Nabil produced by Dijay Karl. After that I dropped Back to Reality. Then I collaborated with Akwandor for two more hit tracks, my last release Murder and my next single ‘Killin It’ recorded at Hit54Studios. You will get it soon on your Blog!! We are going to drop an LP by the end of the year before the Album. Anticipate the LP called Polished Shaft,a collection of songs for my Lovers..
8- Are there any upcoming collabos?
Yes they are in the pipeline. But I’ll save that kongosa for your blog later
9- How will you rate the urban music industry from when you started and now
Progressive..
10- Is there any other thing you would like to talk about that we might have missed?
I just wanna say, I hope we can focus on my music and art now. There has been lots of focus on controversy.  At this point in my career I have a lot to offer musically and I like it to be out there. I know,I’ll always have my fair share of that, am a controversial person but I will like people to get to discover my new music from The Polished Shaft collection.
11-If you are given the opportunity to change something in the music industry.What would it be?
It will be the platform event organisers, promoters and the media set up to Show case talents. As Artists are getting bigger and better the platforms to Showcase their works need to be presented in a way that will give value to the artists and their works.
12-Thanks for talking to us Gasha

Thank you for bringing the kongosa to my door, It’s always a pleasure ..
