Pancho Cy of Cameroon says... As a businessman, he needs to make profit a because he lamented about the lost loss some months back when he organized a show and invited some Cameroon artists to perform.

Marketing-wise Naira Marley is the reigning star.
Diamond platinum was one of the best in Africa as in 2021 the diamond maker from East Africa had a collaboration with Davido, somebody connected Davido with him.
Cy's intention of bringing 'Naira' is for them to collaborate with him. Nigerian sounds are the best and it's very obvious that Cameron copies it.
The top best music management is found in Nigeria, which was Cameroon were lacking and they're trying to force Cameronite to listen to the music, up to gospel music, Nigerian Gospel artists have taken over. Some other issues that Cameron has are Structural issues, policies which are recorded to be 60/40.
Nigerian afrobeat has a rigid policy in industry, laws that regulate Nigeria music are protected by the government. Another example, of South Africa's policies, is that they play their music the most on all music platforms.
Another thing is the quality of the music. Nigeria afrobeat releases music back to back while Cameroon top musicians release one music in a whole year.
