Why Locko didn’t feature in Stanley Enow’s “Bounce” video

On May 29, 2016 Motherland Empire released the visuals of ‘Bounce’, a new single by Multi-Award winning Cameroonian artiste, Stanley Enow. The track features South African rapper AKA and the super talented Locko. 

Fan's couldn't help but notice Locko's absence from the video even though he could be heard singing all the chorus. "Why is Locko now in the video?", his fans kept asking. Well the following is why Locko didn't featured the "Bounce" video...
"According to our latest exchanges (with Motherland) they wanted us to contribute financially to this video with the pretext of visibility, something unacceptable knowing that we have no right to the song or album,” said Big Dreams Entertainment, the house which publishes and produces LOCKO. 
“We tried to find a compromise taking account of the opportunity it would give Locko and have proposed to pay our transportation costs to and fro. Following this proposal, we have not had any response."
I think Motherland Empire should be paying Locko here...He literally made the song!

  1. Well, The audio of this song (Bounce) was made over a year ago when most people didn't know Locko. So it was an honour for Locko to be featured with Stanley coz at the time he wasn't really known and it helped to promote him. However, as far as the video goes, to be honest, if i was in Locko's place, I would have paid to be in the video not because of anything but the fact that it will get me world recognition.A song/ video with AKA is not biscuit and i am sure Motherland paid A LOT for that. Our artists need to understand that this is SHOWBIZ, the Buisness part is just as important. You have to invest financially to get results. Anyway, I love Locko and Stanley. And the song is awesome. *Now let's move on*.

    1. Bullshit. What did AKA sing in the song. Locko is 10 thousand times better than Stanley Enow deal with it. His videos Ndutu and Margo ozzz class. He has no right to pay to feature in a video of a song he has no rights to. Stanley Enow should accept that he was broken and could not fly locko for a video shot period! Lastly the chorus made by Locko is the only thing that made the song beautiful. Cos Stanley got wacky lyrics as usual. You pay someone to feature in your song. If according to you Stanley Enow clappers putting Locko in the video would do him a favour my dear take several seats.

    3. So they were ready to contribute. Then what happened Mosina. Seems Stanley Enow no be just want Locko in the video cos he thought he will be doing him a favour. Am tempted to agree in a way with Anonymous 10:33 up there. Well on to next.

  10. Camerooniians an analysis. to be happy that AKA had a glimpse of locko's talents, you are instead throwing water on his faya. You say "who is AKA?" just remove AKAs verse and leave stanleys verses togeda with the chorus and see what because of the song. AKA killed it. he meticulously flowed to the beat.His on another level. I appreciate your love for locko and i respect his mouth watering singles but to be frank that is a step forward. you have no idea of the size of AKAs fan base and conections. its extra large. Now rest assured rappers like casper nyovest dj dimples ice prince burna boy wizkid etc have come across the song and will be asking who has tha voice. i love to meet him. lets stop trying to put negativity ahead. it portrays us in a bad way. we are d very ones killing our stars.the other way round, imagine locko was a well established music mogul. if the song was lockos and stanley enow was not yet known and did a collabo will locko not have asked stanley to pay. its not just talents fans and music. the artist need to survive grow. they need profits.

  15. hello to all Kamer Music Fans.Here is my opinion on the above matter if at all information read above is true and valid. I will simply say for my part that STANLEY DID NOT WANT LOCKO ON THE VIDEO. PERIOD. If Big Dreams Entertainment, LOCKO's production house did indeed propose to pay for their artist,and was rejected, then it calls to our attention that the the presence of the LOCKOMOTIVE on the video was a nuisance. Again, if STANLEY DID ASK FOR Big Dreams Entertainment TO PAY HIM SOME MONEY, THEN HE IS GREEDY AND ONLY DOLLAR MIND CENTERED. Why do I say so. Though it is Showbiz you can still decide to be kind to those who are down while you are up. One day you might need them to BOUNCE again. I think that is even what the song is all about. BOUNCE INDEED.Again, Stanley should not forget that HE DID NOT PAY A DIME TO FEATURE WITH SARKODIE Africa's own BEST RAPPER. IF YOU DOUBT ME LISTEN TO THE SONG WELL AND INQUIRE. Was Sarkodie MAD. No he was not. He knew One day through Stanley, He might BOUNCE back if things get worse for him and good for the latter. That is also SHOWBIZ STRATEGY. And finally, if Stanley really wanted LOCKO on the video, amidst all the financial constraints, LOCKO's Team could still affort to shoot his part in Cameroon and send to the MIAN VIDEO DIRECTOR OF THE VIDEO WHO THROW THE MAGIC OF VIDEO EDITING WOULD HAVE MADE A BETTER VIDEO. My regards to all the Camer artist we are proud of you. it does not matter which side of the MOUNGO YOU COME FROM.ALL WE WANT IS GOOD MUSIC. Thanks
