Daphne Njie Work hard and play hard

The Africa Report - - COUNTRY FOCUS -

The 27-year-old singer’s lat­est hit ‘Calée’, a song about fall­ing in love, has recorded more than 2.5m hits on Youtube since it was first re­leased in March. It be­came the num­ber one video on music chan­nel Trace Ur­ban in June. Daphne (the name she per­forms un­der) says she was driven to write the song be­cause women of­ten find it dif­fi­cult to ex­press their feel­ings to men. Daphné launched a first mini al­bum called Re­flec­tion in 2015 and is part of a big­ger wave of An­glo­phone Cameroo­nian artists hit­ting the big time on the pop music scene. Born in Cameroon’s South West Prov­ince, Daphne is a stu­dent of psy­chol­ogy at the Univer­sity of Buea. She told lo­cal me­dia that her strat­egy is “work hard and play hard”.
