  1. It must be the fault of wicked African dictators kikkiki. There is onion scacity in India right now. The fool can not think about Exporting from Cameroon, Nigeria or Niger to make money.

    • Ears to the ground, Indians returned from Hollywood in California and converted Bombay into Bollywood. Nigeria and Ghana did the same by coming up with Nollywood and Ghollywood respectively. Each of these nations turned local poverty and other setbacks into money-making machines.

      Should Cameroon not follow suit? What could be more entertaining than projecting Peter Nsanda’s Ekumu onto the world scene or Francis Nyamnjoh’s “Married But Available”? Where is Cameroon creativity to transpose Leopold Oyono’s Meka and the people of Ngoulemendouga into today’s Paul Biya, his clansmen and the rest of Cameroon as a modern day cast of The House Boy? What could be more ideal than showing how one man’s trash is another’s treasure?
