Charlotte Dipanda

BIOGRAPHY

Charlotte Dipanda is a Cameroonian Afropop singer who was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon, on July 18th, 1985. In the line of African divas, she is recognized as one of the most deserving representations of singing.

In addition to her native Bakaka, the singer/songwriter’s take on acoustic sounds incorporates melodic Afro-pop, vocal jazz, and a creative combination of traditional music with words in Douala or French.

The young Cameroonian began her career as a studio and stage chorister. As a young adolescent, her existence as a musician served as a distraction from school. She immediately started performing at open-mike evenings in a Yaoundé club.

Discovered by Lokua Kanza, Dipanda made her debut on guitarist Jeannot Hens’ album “Ndando,” which was released in 2002. She subsequently moved to France, where she performed as a backup vocalist. She has performed as a backing vocalist for Manu Dibango, Axelle Red, Rokia Traoré, and Congolese musician Papa Wemba.

She took her career a dramatic turn by committing herself to her solo journey after several years as a background vocalist. Her debut solo album, “Mispa,” was published in 2009, and it was an acoustic piece recorded in Paris with Guy Nsangue.

In 2011, she released her second album, “Dube L’am,” which was co-produced by Jacob Desvarieux, a zouk legend, and bassist Richard Bona. In 2015, however, she published her third album. She debuted as a judge on The Voice Afrique Francophone, a television singing competition, in 2016.
