Kris Badd

Kris Badd is a multi talented artist who was famed in the 1990s in Cameroon for his great performances of Michael Jackson’s songs. Discovered at a young age on popular TV show “Delire”, the then “Michael Jackson impersonator” as people still refer to him, was far from imagining that he would start a movement in his country, that would have thousands of young people follow…
With hits like “Zeben (part 1)”, “Za’ane” or the ever so popular “NO SIDA” (funded by the World Bank and huge phenomenon that took Cameroon by storm), the creator of “Hip Hop Makossa” gave a new meaning to the words “singing” and “dancing”.He flirted with cinema too…Got two acting roles first in 2002 in “Par Ignorance”, a short-film directed by Herve Harding Guiffo which depicted the sad reality of the ravages caused by the HIV/AIDS pandemic and won First prize at the international movie festival “Yaounde Tout Court” in 2003, then in the sci-fi political thriller “Les Saignantes” (The Bloodettes) directed by Jean-Pierre Bekolo. The movie premiered at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival and won the Silver Stallion and Best Actress Award at the FESPACO in 2007.
Kris Badd has contributed meaningfully to the advancement of arts through music, and has used his songs to tackle social issues such as AIDS, poverty and infidelity. He helped put youth music on the map, and surely opened doors for the thousands of young artists that have followed in his footsteps… From Koppo to X-Maleya, all have showed their support, and only had good things to say about the musician during his recent visit to Cameroon.
Kris Badd has managed to create a terrific profile for himself and still stay grounded, despite his success. Now based in France, where he teaches young people about singing and dancing among other things, that is when he is not sharing the stage with superstars like Soprano, Kery James or even Manu Dibango, this incredible man with an incredible talent is coming back to the music scene…
Five years after releasing his latest single and 10 long years after “NO SIDA”, Kris Badd is back with a brand new single titled “Zeben (part 2)”, and an upcoming album to be released by late 2013.
