Bio
Anita has emerged as one of the most prominent and widely
recognized voices in the Cameroon Gospel music scene today. She is known and
respected for her uncompromising style of ministry through her songs, her
writings, her live messages and her prayer and counseling ministry. With a
voice that has been described as “anointed”, “dulcet
tones”, Anita continues to work tirelessly to elevate the standard of
Cameroon Gospel Music by mentoring new gospel artists and fostering
collaboration and love among music ministers. She is a recording artist who
does more Kingdom work off the stage and behind the camera’s in response to the
needs of the church in a world where so many are in dire need of true ministry
from the Holy Ghost. 

Born in Cameroon,
Anita went to Saker
Baptist College,
an all girls’ boarding school where a Christian education was of the utmost
importance. Her first vocal influence was her mom. During her years at Saker,
music and daily devotions were an integral part of boarding school life. At
home, her parents were strong pastoral influences who laid the foundation for a
personal relationship with Christ. Anita’s musical foundation was elevated to
new heights in Walsall, England when she sang alto with
Re:mission, one of England’s
best gospel choirs. With Re:Mission, she took part in the BBC’s “Songs of
Praise”. Re:Mission
boasts 4 albums with a number of nominations and awards for Best British Gospel
Music. With Re:mission, she has shared the stage with gospel greats such as The
Winans, Donny McClurkin, Graham Kendrick and Fred Hammond.

Anita is a wife and mother of two. In 2006, she was part of the
South Hills, CA Church Choir that recorded the album ‘Madly”. Through the
music she writes, she ministers to the broken hearted and brings healing from
the pain of suffering. As a prayer warrior she engages in intercessory prayer
and counseling thereby bringing deliverance to many wounded and bound souls.
She believes that her anointing is in transforming lives through ministry to
the whole person- spirit, body and soul- hence achieving the harmony that God
intended for his children. 

Her first album entitled “I Gotta Testify”
was released in 2008 after which she released a number of singles. Her second
album entitled “My Deliverance has come” was released in June 2014. Her
third album “Purify Me” was released barely a year later in July 2015.  Anita won the 2011 Artist of the year with
Nexdim Empire and currently has 3 nominations for Best Gospel Artist in USA /Canada with the
British Africa Gospel Music Awards and 1 nomination for the Cameroon
Entertainment Awards.

She is a poetic songwriter who testifies about the faithfulness of
God in taking his children through the wilderness into a glorious promise.
Anita has a somewhat laid back and yet anointed vocal style that will soothe
you into a place of hope!

In
addition to her music ministry, Anita holds an MBA in Human Resources and has a
successful career in corporate America.
Founder of Atina Music Foundation Inc., a charitable organization that spreads
the gospel of Jesus Christ through various musical events, mentoring, music
scholarships and donations to aspiring gospel artists. Her philanthropic
activities have also included working with orphans in Africa,
an incubator donation project for hospitals in her home country

Review
Barely
a year since the release of her 2nd Album, Cameroonian Gospel
Recording sensation Anita has released her 3rd album entitled
“Purify Me”. Anita has emerged as one of the most celebrated voices in the Cameroon gospel
music scene with her ability to give her fans pure anointing wrapped in amazing
vocals. She has been true to her cultural background yet remaining relevant and
current in her use of today’s most vibrant styles of African praise and
worship.
This is a 12 track Album that showcases Anita’s vocal prowess
in a fresh and powerful way that raises the bar yet again. She successfully
delivers an anointing that reveals spiritual growth and time well spent in the
throne room since her last Album in 2014.
The Album opens up with a captivating track “My God is Good”
which has been very well received by fans since the release of the single. This
song combines Afropop, Makossa and Ndombolo music genres very prevalent in
modern African music.

This album has enough for all her fans; if you enjoyed songs
such as “Sawa Medley” and “Village Medley” from her 2014 album, you will adore
“Loba Mosoma’  and “My God is good” in
this album. If you prefer the contemporary Christian style of music which was
prevalent in her debut album from 2007, then there will be plenty for you in
this album with titles such as “I Cry” and “As Jesus Walks By”. In a true
“Hillsong style, Anita serves you “Jesus Messiah”, a song that will
effortlessly take you into an atmosphere of worship.

 The artist reveals her
musical heritage from her days with the top British Gospel group Remission with
the song “Caribbean Medley”. This is an album that you can equally use in your
private worship time or at all your social events; you can praise dance or you
can listen prayerfully and be lead by Anita’s dulcet tones into the presence of
the King!


Anita’s Inspiration
My first inspiration is the Lord Jesus; as a gospel singer I
believe that I was called into ministry by the Lord and for me it is all about
how I can allow the Holy Spirit to use me to impact a life for Jesus. I therefore
do a lot of one on one ministry outside of my singing.

I am also inspired by the needs of people around me to
respond in a number of ways:
–       write
song lyrics that speak to everyday issues that people face
–       I am a
prayer warrior, an intercessor, a front line soldier in the army of the Lord. I
get many calls for prayer by people facing all kinds of problems such as
marital issues, difficult children, family issues, gossip, financial issues and
so on
–       I provide
Christian counseling and teaching to those who reach out to me with their
problems. I use the word of God to help them handle their problems and build
their character. Although I pray for people I believe that prayer alone causes
them to be dependent on the minister so counseling and teaching from the work
equips them to handle things better as they mature spiritually.

Some singers who inspire me are Cece Winans, Bebe Winans,
Hillsong Australia

Some ministers who inspire me are my spiritual father Pastor Charles
Eseme Enaw, Pastor Dr Stella Immanuel of FirePower Ministries, Pastor Francis
Mwale
