B-1 AND Alexis E are two talented Cameroonian artists in the
diaspora who are always known to be in the news. This is either because of
frequent releases or crowd pulling public performances or better still because
of their creativity in terms of initiating projects. The Maryland-based Cameroonian singers who hail from the Bakossi tribe in the southwest region of
the country have always had one herculean mission-taking Bakossi to the world
stage. That has been eminent in their music and both artists have overtly said
so at every given occasion. It is probably in a bid to turn this dream into a
reality that B-1 and Alexis E have proceeded to initiate what they hope Is
going to be the biggest success story as far as promoting Bakossi is concerned.
The said project, B*BOYZ (Bakossi Boyz),
just made public, is that result which the singers had hoped for since they
decided to bring Bakossi to the limelight as far as music is concerned. Soon
after B BOYZ was announced, Crystal Beauty caught up with the young singers to
find out what exactly this project was all about and began by asking them when
the group was created.

into effect. So we finally decided to let the ball roll last month (August
