Who was Samy Lenwr?

The youngest of three brothers born to a Cameroonian mother and an Egyptian father, Leonard FEFOA AKA Samy Labrute was born in Yaoundé on October 13, 1989.

After successfully completing his secondary education in a local institution, he pursued his studies at the University of Yaoundé II (SOA), where he was majoring in law.

His kindergarten teachers had done the right thing by bringing him to perform songs because he has always been passionate about music. This practise continued each year’s end during the distribution of report cards till he entered college.

Despite being a part of the community choir, he then made the decision to start writing and came up with the alias Samy Labrute, a dynamic mafia movie character. Samy fits the bill and is capable of more for his teammates. He enjoys the music of musicians like Petit Pays, Youssour ‘ndour Isma’il Lo, Ménélik, Mc Sollar, and La fouine, to mention a few.

After undergoing all of these transformations, Samy Labrute teams up with his friends to form the SAMY gang, which includes Samy from the mic, Jok6 Prolifik, and Jaycika. The trio makes frequent appearances on programmes like MTN Trace Mobile throughout the 2010 University Games and Challenge season. However, this one fails to progress, so Samy decides to pursue a solo career.

He performs solo and is in high demand on even bigger stages. No situation escapes her, even red carpets and fairs.

Samy Labrute is an album that is currently being worked on, and one of the important titles is “Bobotonik,” which is very successful and popular in radio and online.

He took a break in 2013 to concentrate on his education and his other interests, photography and video creation. “Well, I can tell you that your message did not fall on deaf ears and I will answer you with a Single video that will be released this August 01, 2018,” he said in response to multiple calls from his followers and those who have long urged him to return to music. As he has improved his technique and grown more mature for everyone’s enjoyment, this is the start of a brand-new voyage full of music.

Samy Lenwr’s songs are a colorful blend of several musical genres that are inspired by his experiences, his surroundings, and the people in his life. They talk about YOU, ME, US, and even more about Africa, he says. Samy’s musical taste veers between hip-hop, afro-pop, reggae, and afro-beat. It developed with singles in the lack of a producer and technical assistance. However, this helped him get some notoriety and the title of acknowledged artist.
