Peter adds that Paul has slandered his wife and children on social media. His family has even received threatening messages, he says.

He further alleges that Jude had threatened to kill him and shoot his wife. This happened in the presence of Paul and the first lady of Cross River State Mrs Imoke, he alleges.

Douala: SDO bans Maahlox from performing in Bonamousadi http://cameroon-concord.com/entertainment/douala-sdo-bans-maahlox-from-performing-in-bonamousadi http://cameroon-concord.com/entertainment/douala-sdo-bans-maahlox-from-performing-in-bonamousadi Douala: SDO bans Maahlox from performing in Bonamousadi

The SDO for Douala 5, Tchakui Nounde Jean Marie, has signed a release banning the controversial Cameroonian musician, Maahlox le vibeur from holding a musical jamboree which comes up on July 6th 2017 in the snack bar MERMO at Bonamousadi, one of Douala's beautiful quarters.

The SDO stands on grounds that Maahlox's musical shows  are often rife with tensions due to controversial declarations which usually put many people at loggerheads.{loadposition myposition}

Mr Tchakui has urged the Douala 12 commissioner of public security to take all necessary measures to see that the decision is fully  respected without any compromise.

The artist who has been at the center of many scandals these days is yet to react to the decision.

The author of popular songs, 'ça sort comme ça sort and tueur pour tueur' is said to be coming out of a hospital bed  after an aggression in a night club  two weeks ago. Before his aggression, le vibeur as he is porpularly called, was summoned to answer questions at the secretary of state for defense ( SED)  following his outrageous and opprobrious declarations made concerning the demise of the late bishop of Bafia, Jean Marie Benoit Balla when he went missing.

Most Cameroons who do not adhere to his musical genre have concluded nemesis is fastly catching up with Maahlox.{loadposition myposition2}

Yaounde: Malhox hospitalised after being attacked http://cameroon-concord.com/entertainment/yaounde-malhox-hospitalised-after-being-attacked http://cameroon-concord.com/entertainment/yaounde-malhox-hospitalised-after-being-attacked Yaounde: Malhox hospitalised after being attacked

Cameroonian rapper Mahlox, who is popularly known for his song "ça sort comme ça sort", was reportedly agressed yestersay June 17.

He had gone to perform at the OG night club, but unfortunately for him, he was severely brutalised by unknown individuals.{loadposition myposition}

Earlier today, the artist posted a message on his facebook page saying,"I'm presently at the hospital, perhaps gravely wounded. I was agressed at the OG night club".

This has provoked all sorts of reactions by fans and other observers, who think that's just a tip if the iceberg, considering his foul utterances during the period bishop Benoit went missing.

At the time sympathizers were cracking their heads on how they were going to find their missing Bafia Shepherd, he went on to provoke their sad spirits. Since the bishop was said to have jumped into the water at that time, Mahlox posted on social media, asking what the man of God was doing under the water, had he become fish? The public judged this to be unwise for a man in his right senses.

Under much pressure, put by protests on social networks against him, "tuer pour tuer" author pulled himself back and said, he would apologize and even write a song dedicated to His lordship Benoit Balla, provided the suicide allegations are proven wrong.{loadposition myposition2}

"Her manager and I are well but Daphne is under intensive medical care,"Romaric Tene narrates.
The man added that the singer has been X-rayed already and  is currently at the Yaoundé Central Hospital.
The mystery of a car crashing into another car already parked at a  night club comes to add to a host of other puzzles in Cameroon in recent weeks.  The dust has not yet settled on the mysterious death of Bishop Jean Marie Benoit Balla who was found dead at the banks of the Sanaga River. He had disappeared three days earlier, leaving his car on the bridge with a note, "I'm in the water".
Another female singer of the Macase Band, died a few days ago in yet another accident. Merveille Tsang'mbe died on June 2 in Yaounde. {loadposition myposition2}

Douala: Artists boycotts a conference for musicians http://cameroon-concord.com/entertainment/douala-artists-boycotts-a-conference-for-musicians http://cameroon-concord.com/entertainment/douala-artists-boycotts-a-conference-for-musicians Douala: Artists boycotts a conference for musicians

Some artist decided to boycott a conference for musicians which held in Douala yesterday. According to reports this conference was organized by one of them Marko Mbella who heads a new platform put in place by arts and culture minister to look into problems raised by artist. The meeting which had its venue changed saw a drop in attendance. The organizers explain it was due to change of venue that the turnout was small. The meeting aimed at bringing long lasting solutions to their crises and talk on author’s rights.

Sources say during the meeting which saw the absence of some big names like Ben Ndeca, papion and others, artist proposed that CMC and SOCAM be dissolve and a new association created.  They also discussed on obtaining electoral cards, internal rules and regulation of their association.{loadposition myposition}

According to Marko Mbella the minister’s call for the meeting is to work on a new collective effort to manage author’s rights in music, propose internal rules and regulations, electoral codes and to manage technical and financial resources to organize the general assembly while proposing ways to dissolve the two former associations and grate a new one by merging the two associations. The association will have a new management team with a new constitution to govern it.

The legality of CMC was questioned and others proposed a complete dissolution of both CMC and SOCAM to create a new association for artist in Cameroon. Boycott in Douala has been seen by observers as a long way to show how divided Cameroonian artists are and many say this is the main cause of their problems.{loadposition myposition2}

The reaction of a popular Cameroonian musician to the death of Bishop Jean Marie Balla  is making headlines across the country, especially on social media. Maahlox lashed out at a fan who used his timeline to mourn the bishop.
Maahlox began by insulting the lady who had posted her distress on his timeline. He further wondered if the bishop had more problems than everyone else  to "commit suicide".
"He claimed to be a Man of God yet he was the first to jump into the lake[...]", he said. "Was he more troubled than those who go without food?", he questioned.
This outing on Facebook attracted diverse reactions from Cameroonians. Some people reminded the music star that he was losing a fan by insulting the lady. Maahlox had ordered the young woman to go and cry at the Sanaga River and not on his timeline. "If you are his girlfriend go and wail somewhere else," he said bitterly.{loadposition myposition}
On Friday it was rumoured that Maahlox had been called up for interrogation. It is yet to be confirmed.
Some people are wondering what would become of Maahlox if it turned out that the bishop did not actually commit suicide as he  claimed.
But Maahlox stands his ground, arguing that fame does not make him more human than everyone else.
The bishop was fished out of the river on Friday after he went missing on Tuesday night. He reportedly left his home at 11 p.m local on Tuesday. His car was later found with a note which read " i'm in water" at the Sanaga bridge, some kilometers away from his home.
In spite of the recovery of his corpse, the circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear. Investigation is underway.
