Cameroon has had yet another great loss in the Entertainment industry. Just a couple of days after the passing of Cameroonian stylist and designer Patou Manga, Cameroonian music artist Achalle has passed away. The winner of Stars 2 Demain music competition in 20016/2007 reportedly passed away this morning after battling with Liver Cancer.
A facebook user named Vallycool Cool who apparently was a close friend to Achalle (Starboy Achaley), announced the death of the music artist with the following post;
Starboy Achaley is no more, he died this morning at 5:30a.m at the limbe General Hospital. He has suffered with liver cancer, the disease which ‘claimed the singer/songwriter’s life’. He was the 1st winner of Star de demain 2006/07. He passed away at the aged 30 after living with the liver disease for more than 3 years.
However, his death came as a shock to most Cameroonian including his mother-like aunty Colette Bovelette who said it was a “complete surprise”.
Months before his death, Achaley released his last album Ebolo which has been hitting the air waves, on trace Tv and all other tv channels in Cameroon. Achaley a graduate from the university Buea, released his first album feeling insecure which was a hit song in Cameroon. I am proud to say I was part of the making of this song, and part of his music career. He will forever be the best vocalist Cameroon has ever had.

It is a very sad period for Cameroonians and Music lovers around. We at THJ extend our heartfelt condolences to his Family and may his soul Rest In Peace.
Adeiu Achale …. Your Music will live on !
