Africa’s “Next Big Thing”. Meet Cameroon’s Budding Gospel Artist Prosper Menko-Exclusive Interview on ARREYB

No rare brand of gospel artists ever rose to the top of Cameroon Music with a large fan base internationally like he did. He is arguably Cameroon’s most celebrated gospel artist, the one who steals the show on every scene. 

Fans commend and cherish his ability to stir up a presence not just by singing, but ministering. 
Often he gets “lost” in his ministrations and I feel like joining him in the heavens where he is cut up- that’s if at all I can explain what goes on. 

I would always chuckle in some spiritual excitement. Yessssss! He took me there- I know when am there.   

Prosper Menko is nominee for All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) 2017 in the ‘’Best Male Artist in Inspirational Music’’ category. 

Menko rides in the music world with his daring vocal notorious for creating good music to the ears.

He is also a graphics designer by profession and Chief Executive Officer of Highland House, Cameroon, an establishment that is flaunt with booming talents! 

In an exclusive interview with ARREYB, the music icon shares his life experience and amazing life style from scratch to greatness. Read on..

How did you get into Music?

My gospel music career stirred up in secondary school; primarily in Form One and Upper Sixth, when I began singing in my dormitory with an inimitable voice, often applauded by my mates which groomed me towards my professional career today. 

Passionionate about making gospel music the core in Cameroon, my talent grew exponentially in 2008 with multiple skills for music.

How long have you been into music?

I’ve been into gospel music for roughly a decade (10 Years).

What are your achievements so far?

Together with my team, we have embraced multiple attainments significantly in our concerts, events and other ministrations across Cameroon and beyond. Here some achievement highlights;

  • Youth Conference @Christ Embassy Buea ft. Eben and TB1 (Lagos, Nigeria).
  • Mount Cameroon Music Festival – Buea Cameroon (2017)
  • The Activist Concert (Min Tru South & Mr. Noble from Lagos Nigeria) 2017 @ Christ Embassy Douala, Cameroon.
  • Loveworld Festival of Music & Arts (LFMA) 2013, 2015 & 2017 in Nasrec Expo Centre (Gauteng) Johannesburg, South Africa with Rev Dr Chris Oyakhilome and Christ Embassy gospel artists worldwide. 

What has been your most difficult moment of your music career?

I haven’t encountered notable difficulties in my gospel music career per-say but regardless of challenges that might want to pop, I always overcome them through the word of God and my music.

Which song was your most difficult track so far and why?

Well, let’s say ‘’Winner’’ project with audio produced by Salatiel and video shot by Dr Nkeng Stephens which is nominated for the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) 2017. 

For the audio, I exerted extreme patience with Salatiel following his busy schedules. But the production was aimed for the best and it’s a blazing release making waves nationally and internationally. The video shoot was exciting and I amassed several personalities to participate in the project.

So what has been your inspiration?

I’m eternally inspired greatly by the word of God which is the foundation and source of my music content. 

Inspiration comes as well from my universal icon and Man of God; President of Believers’ Loveworld (AKA) Christ Embassy- Rev Dr Chris Oyakhilome (DSC, DD) who gives the opportunity and platform to minister God’s word to people and nations of the world.

How do you cope handling designing with your music?

It’s all about time and schedule maximization and that’s primordial for me as a graphics designer and gospel music artist and minister.

Many aspiring artists look up to you as an International artist; what advice do you have for them?

The key to sustaining a successful gospel music career is being incessant with the word of God.  Stay focused to your dream and passion; it’s not about the fame because fame comes based on your instruction and followership of the word of God. Give your gospel music aspirations some time and you’ll break limits.

If you should choose, which artist will you like to do collaboration with?

Several, but I currently have an audio track with renowned Nigerian gospel artist and rapper Protek Illesheva titled ‘’Belle Weh’’ and anticipations are aroused for the upcoming video shot in Johannesburg South Africa.

Married, Single, Searching or Engaged?

Hahahahaha, I’m single and not searching.
