“Locokomotive” is a term used exclusively in the Cameroon music world when addressing Locko’s fans. The lockomotive movement really gained grounds after the released of, “Bounce Video” shot in South Africa and the conspicuous absence of Locko in the video. As usual, whatever a great man does; haters, critics, fans, well-wishers alike will be left to analyse and comment.
Here at meetcameroonians(MC), we will like to think a little bit out of the box and bring a new insight to this matter and open Cameroonians’ mind to subliminal messages embedded in the video. Locko’s absence in the Video is creating more waves than his presence would have. Was it carefully calculated by S.E and Locko as a strategy to get the Lockomotive movement on a spring board?
S.E is one of Cameroon’s best hip hop star, he’s no bitch, he’s no faggot, but real as the sun and will continue to lead and shine his musical light. He doesn’t fake it and we all know he does not share works of those he got beef with on his Facebook wall anymore. The picture below proves the king is super tight with Locko:
Now back to the topic; Decoding the Video, the subliminal messages. Two types of viewers, one wishing Locko was in the Video, whereas the other set of viewers actually saw Locko in the video both in his magical voice and his current position in the “main stream” industry; being demonstrated by the vertical chain in the Video with a padlock(Locko) keyed to it. If locko has been identified as the padlock, “who” or “what” then is the vertical chain? The vertical chain represents the stages to the top of stardom. At this point, Locko has been accepted, tested and keyed to the first stage, and just half of the next stage has been shown to him, and it’s so enticing.
The question that pops up is,”Who has the key to the padlock and power to unlock Locko to the next stage?” Definitely not S.E, but who? I will leave the curious mind to ponder and remember am talking about the main stream industry. They like Locko, they want to make him a super star because he got the talent, but can he make it all the way to the top? Watch the video again from a different point of view, not as a hater, critic, but a fan of the Cameroon music industry:
