OTANG a.k.a Da Voice popularly knows as the Game Change, is a Cameroonian born 12 years old female kid rapper and talk show presenter who achieved a critical mass acclamation after her first public rap freestyle "Otang: The Next Game Changer" went viral on social media.

Since then the budding internet sensation has been invited to some of the most prominent radio and TV shows in the country. She has become an international goodwill ambassador for the charity organization, The Voice of Hope  and CCW Award winner 2018, in the category of best female rap artist.


She dropped the video of her first single titled "Rush Us", on September 8th,2018 together with her EP made up of 6 songs titled "Victims". Otang's music career is just 8 months old and her journey is already a beautiful story in a country experiencing constant political unrest, especially in the two English speaking regions where she hails. That's also the reason why she is gradually getting the attention of some credible platforms, both locally and internationally. The rap genre is predominantly explored by male artists, because it requires so much courage and confidence. That's why critics say her style and lyrics are phenomenal and unprecedented at her age earning her the name "Otang: The Game Changer".Otang represents the hope and aspirations of a better African society. She is an embodiment of the emancipation of the girl child especially in this part of the world, where women are marginalized and relegated to the background. 

 

Otang A.K.A "The Voice", is exploring her musical passion as a tool to inspire teenagers and young girls to brace the odds and use their God-given talent to positively impact the world. She has been doing this through her weekly talk show on her YouTube channel called "Otang: The Voice Show". Otang is surrounded by the love and mentorship of her father, Galaxy J One who is also a recording artist and a pioneer in the Cameroonian urban music industry. According to Galaxy J One, Otang has the potential to become a global brand taking into consideration what she's achieved in just a few months with the support of her team. While Otang is currently being booked for many events around the country, she still finds time to do her school work and also work on her second EP, alongside new videos to be released in the weeks ahead. We keep our lights focused on this rising superstar so that we can constantly update you on her next Game Changing move.
