Born December 31st in the beautiful town of Limbe, Cameroon of West Africa, singer, and songwriter Ulanda popularly known as “Mama Makossa” grew up in a loving, musically nurturing household with her parents, siblings, and extended family. Growing up in a polygamous home was a vital part of shaping her mindset
In August 2011, Ulanda left the beautiful country of Cameroon to relocate to the U.S. Leaving her home and all she knew was an emotional trial for Ulanda but living by her mother’s advice and her upbeat spirit allowed her to see the hidden opportunities in moving to America. She later moved back home and connected with her roots. Her sultry voice evokes emotions within you.
Her music can be summed up in one word, “Contemporary“. With the ability to use her voice as an instrument and experimenting with vocal harmonies learned through studying the art of Makossa, Soul, Pop, R&B, and Afrobeats, her free-spirited lyrics, influenced by Toni Braxton, Charlotte Dipanda, Brandy, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Richard Bona, Lokua Kanza, Bebe manga, and Mariah Carey to name a few, bridges the gap between many genres as a beacon to the masses, attracting a universal fan base.
She is present on the various social media outlets
