One of the best Communicators in cameroon Tony Nobody made a harsh but true remark. He said “
There is no industry in Cameroon”.
The Mboa presenter on Canal 2, called on camer artists to stop copying sounds from other countries like Nigeria, Ghana etc. He told them to create a sound and identity of their own. He also appreciated the coming of a seminar like the 237 music business and told organisers to come up with such. Its through this seminar that, actors in the music industry will reflect on what to do to see our industry grow. Musicians were also schooled on authors right which is neglected by many artist in Cameroon.
Stanley Enow came in at the end and spiced things up with a wonderful performance of his recent single “Casanova“. He answered to questions from the audience. The KingKong promised to do a remix of “Sidomina” ft Awu. Stanley adviced artists to travel a lot.
He said younger artistes should move to other areas like, Limbe, Kribi and breezy areas to have cool minds and refresh their heads to bring out good songs.
The seminar was an opportunity for people to voice out their personal and proffesional problems.
The problems encountered were, late start, the hall had no Air Conditioner with the hit in Douala. To remedy the hit situation, bottles of mineral water and juice was provided for everyone.
The seminar ended with pic session. Only possitive vibe was reported at the end. The Entertainment industry need such seminars. This will enable our industry to grow from good to better.
