“Cameroon is a dream killing country” – Salatiel laments

Salatiel

Salatiel is airing his frustrations on the way music producers are treated in Cameroon and says, they are not given the respect they perhaps truly deserve.

The famous singer and music composer took to his Facebook wall on March 20, reminding everyone that producers are the ‘real people that make the hits’ but are usually ignored or forgotten to be awarded for their hard work.

“I wish Cameroon and Cameroonians come to this state of mind and award the real people that make the hits I mean producers, composers and authors of the songs they are awarding. It is not fair what is done to producers and song writers who are the real geniuses in this country is a dream killing country…. #foodforthought” the singer wrote.

Salatiel’s social media post is coming just a few weeks after Cameroon’s biggest and most anticipated entertainment award show – Canal D’Or Awards 2017 – practically “forgot” to include the ‘Best Producer Award’ category during the entire show.

The show has since been slammed for their absurd negligence and continuous flops even after its 11th edition this year. Not only did they award just two Anglophone artist despite their 25 categories full of francophone nominees but they also, once again, ‘forgot’ to discuss the number one trending topic in the country on their platform – the Anglophone Problem!

But was Salatiel’s grievances or sad post about Canal D’Or 2017?

    What Salatiel said is 100% true. Producers and song writers are the real geniuses. Those are the people who have knowledge about the Music theory and deserve to be awarded. The lyrics of most songs nowadays doesn’t make sense. What makes us interested in the contemporary music (especially the afropop music) is just their catchy instrumentals. If you listen to the music titled Akwaaba by Mr Eazi . You will perfectly understand what i,m talking about.

    I wish Cameroon and Cameroonians can come to this state of mind and award the real people that make the hits… i mean producers, composers and authors of the songs they are awarding.
