Rising afropop star Duprie releases ‘Le Ndem’


With the colossal and deserving rise of Afro Music over the last few years, it’s clear Damen Priestley Dume known professionally as Duprie is not one to rest on his laurels as he continues to push the boundaries of where his soundscape can go.

The Cameroonian-born has made another strong stride into the music industry as he kicked off the second half of 2021 with the release of his much-anticipated Track Le Ndem. Duprie who already has two singles to his name is showing no signs of slowing down.


Due to a blend of traditional influences, contemporary culture, and pervasive Afropop that has been channeled by the United States-based Afro-pop/ RnB Singer and Songwriter into his unique sound with lyrics in English, French, Pidgin, and ethnic languages earned him a place in the frontline of artistes who will further the Afropop cause with an appeal to both French-speaking and Anglophone audiences while gathering a catalogue of hits.

The smooth Afropop track titled ‘Le Ndem’, which is centered around breakup and recovery is delivered entirely in French which comes as a complete switch-up to his previous single ‘Playboy’ released just a month ago featuring Ahkan and produced by Paris Beatz.

Formed by the prolific Cameroonian producer Phill Bill, Duprie’s strong vocals and melodious tunes came to play as it flowed with the song’s slow-paced throbbing beats, pulsating, hip-grinding sound that sets the track apart.

Speaking on the new release making rounds, he explained the inspiration behind the song. “I chose that title because it is an accurate depiction of what the song is about. Ndem; a contextual slang commonly used in Cameroon means mistake in the context of the song. This little is appropriate as the song is about heartbreak, recovery, and avoiding the same mistake”.

Speaking on when to expect an EP, Duprie says that he would quench that craving before the year runs out, “I am currently working on my next project which includes the release of two singles between September and October followed by an EP in November. That is the plan, at least for the rest of the year. I have some projects for 2022 but no concrete plans have been made yet because we would like to focus on our short-term goals first”, he says.

The artist has so far garnered over 10,000 across all platforms.

With two more singles set to drop in August followed by an EP in December, Duprie has been busy, and judging from his delivery so far, there is a good reason to anticipate more from the Cameroonian singer.
