Cameroonian female vocalist – Belole Ray expresses her love for Africa in her new single “Love This Place (Africa)“.
“Love This Place (Africa)” describes the African continent with its diverse and mellifluous music melodies as a place of peace, love, hope and happiness – the pride of the African!
Belole Ray maiden recorded song, “Love This Place (Africa)” was produced by Emil Ngombah of M1 Studio, Molyko-Buea. It features one of Cameroon’s finest guitarist, Marcien Oyono, with a backup voice from “The Voice Afrique Francophone” finalist, Merveille Onguenet.
Although inspired by singers like Alpha Blondy, Lucky Dube and Brenda Fassie, she has, over time, developed a style of her own which is a fusion of Afro-beats with soul and jazz. With her unique voice that leaves every listener spellbound, Ray flies in the same musical orbit as Nigerian singers, Asa and Nneka.
On a general note she is being moved by songs about the many misfortunes which have befallen mankind, such as Apartheid in South Africa, the civil war in Nigeria and DRC, famine in Ethiopia, the Lake Nyos gas disaster in Cameroon, the earthquake in Haiti, etc. This, owing to her incredible love for children, the oppressed and the underprivileged.
