    Uncle Bah,

    Did you also know that the music industry, in as much as it is neither science, engineer nor technician as you listed above but social art, is a sector grouped under entertainment, that does not only create jobs but contribute to the economy of any nation that invest in it, e.g. the USA, UK, S/Korea, SA, Naija etc.

    Your music industry is poorly managed and as a result of that it is dwindling drastically.

    If only you know when makossa was at it peak in the 60s, 70s, 80s and early 90s. Pls do a research how the genre contribute to Cameroon economy during the hay days bro.

    We all know that science and technology is the future of every nation on earth, music is not a barrier and limitation. Music is food to the soul and a channel in which messages is spread sometimes.

  4. Brown [email protected] agree it’s one of the five top industries of the UK.
    Central/west African countries should fight united against their artists creations being copied by other forigen artists and they should invest in indegienious music phone/computer programs and apps, for all nationals, to further artistic creativity and bringing to market …just like the Nigerian film industry,we don’t need to be flattered by outside interests ,when we naturally have what’s best..within us and have a decent market within the continent.
