Few days ago, a freestyle video by an 11 year old girl by the name OTANG published by Emmanuel Mfon on his facebook account went viral as she stepped on one of Dr. Dre’s beats. Her bars and lyrics were full of confidence as she raps, sings and kept proclaiming she is the next game changer.
As little and innocent as she is, OTANG caught the attention of many Cameroonians, 237Showbees, her newly won fans and lovers of music. Apparently, everyone wants to work with her as I write. Her lyrics is a combination of her dad and herself. Almost everyone who has been watching or has watched her freestyle on Emmanuel’s Profile which is currently at 20K views on facebook, on YouTube and the official www.237showbiz.com Facebook page kept a bright smile while watching.
Full of energy, she spits bars not every 11 year old is proud of. According to some of her fans, she’s coming for the Camer Female Rap Throne like the football team of the Republic of France did at the just ended world cup. I’ll advice some of you to shake your sleeping female rappers to wake up because right now the clock is ticking and the time says it’s Otang O’clock.
However, in a bid to know more about this young talented Bayangi star in the making, many fans of hers, supporters and followers of @ChainRapBlogAfrica And @237Showbiz requested to know more about her.
