Star Boy Stanley Enow Brings Home MTV Africa Music Awards : Best New Act 2014

For Best New Art, Cameroon’s Star Boy Stanley Enow, who gained fame with his hit track Hein Pere was nominated, voted and has won the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) in the category of Best New Act. This Award, marks a milestone in his career and the musical industry of Cameroon. Enow is setting the tone for many other Cameroon artists to follow as he also celebrated becoming the first ever Cameroon based artist to get a verified Twitter account, thus sealing his “celebrity” status. 
“Hey world, at this point in time I’m still dreaming, please lemme wake up” summarises Enow’s feelings following his astonishing triumph in Durban. The Samsung Ambassador’s initial nomination on the Best New Act category made headlines as it was seemingly a herculean task for him to bring the MAMA home. With two other tough contenders, Nigeria’s Burna Boy and Phyno, this was understandable. However, through resilience, determination and a rigorous daily voting campaign strategy with support from fans and other artists from afar and wide, Enow has proven that l’impossible n’est pas Camerounais! 
Setting new records and breaking old ones is becoming more of a habit for our Star Boy as this week his Tumbuboss (Deluxe) video will air on the internationally acclaimed MTV music platform. What will Star Boy be achieving next? Fingers crossed because there is definitely going to be a lot more!
