Assala Nelekouo Florence Sonia, known professionally as M Dricha is a young, ambitious and talented Cameroonian artist, who recently released a hit single dubbed “le gout de ca”.
Born into a Christian family, M Dricha originates from the West region of Cameroon.
She was raised in the coastal city of Douala where she started singing in groups made up of mostly her friends who were also excited and passionate about music.
She unfortunately separated from them when she left for the capital city, Yaoundé.
M Dricha was inspired by musicians such as Diams, Lady Ponce, and Lady B.
Apart from being a Rap and Bikutsi artist, M Dricha also got interested in film acting as she joined one of Cameroon’s most renowned movie industries known as “Bisness Production” but her passion for music superseded that of cinematography.
As such she chose to be a musician. “music to me is like opium” she said.
Once she entered Yaounde, she without hesitation, started recording in some of the local studios in the city.
In 2017, she vehemently decided to fully indulge herself into music and has so far released a hit song entitled “le goût de ca”.
It is a Bikutsi track that according to M Dricha, serves as an animation but is pregnant in meaning as it depicts the reality of contemporary Cameroonian society.
Presently, the star is working on her second single “ca me fait quoi” which is so much anticipated by her fans, as they await the release of this rich package.
