According to a list published by 237showbiz.com on December 24, the Alpha Better Records boss tops the list of the most viewed song on YouTube by a Cameroonian artist from Cameroon this year with his hit track, ‘Anita’. The video has over 6.8 million views so far.
Salatiel is only two of the Cameroonians who made the list this year. At the sixth place is Makossa legend, Ben Decca with the lyrical video of his famous song, ‘Souffrance D’amour’ accumulating over 5.6 million views and the video having close to 600,000 views.
Both singers were presented with the live achievement awards at the 2019 Canal D’Or Awards back in March for their massive contribution to music in Cameroon. Salatiel, of course, being the youngest artist to collect the award.
There’s no denying that the ‘Fap Kolo’ singer and music producer is responsible for the rise of music superstars like Mr Leo and Blaise B as well as producers like Big Joe but his ability to lead one of the most successful record labels in the country, as a young man, defines his leadership status and influence to urban music, especially in the English minority regions of the country.
Unfortunately, not many Cameroonian artists made the list as it features other French and French African stars like Dajou, Kerosen, Singuilla and others.
