Nda Chi's Upcoming Album, “Mengwi”, Puts Spotlight on Women


Nda Chi (@ndachi237), a griot from Cameroon will officially release his album, “Mengwi” on November 18th, 2022, exclusively distributed by VerseOne Distribution. Mengwi means 'Woman' in Neghapelong, and is Nda Chi’s mother language. His upcoming 8-track album celebrates the women in his society, while also bringing light to the oppression, inequality, and violence they must face in their lives. Through this project, he aims to sensitize the world to the harsh realities of the misogynous, patriarchal society in which women live, and also calling women to unite in solidarity. “Mengwi” is an external look at the woman and a call to her introspection.
