Cameroon’s frontline afrosoul singer, Wams mrklassic says that his country’s music is one of Africa’s richest, most original and diverse but least valued.
According to Wams, there is a lot of good music being made in Cameroon by super talented independent artists who lack proper exposure, funding for their projects and transparent reward schemes.
According to him, the music industry in Cameroon is underdeveloped, undexplored and therefore a fertile ground for potential investors in the entertainment business. He made this declarations at a Press briefing for his album launch recently in Douala, during which he signed with Spice Vas for exclusive distribution and monetization of his music on digital and Telco platforms across Africa.
This deal with Spice, is a litmus test and a challenge to other fellow artists in Cameroon to follow suit to expose their music to a wider audience and broaden their income streams.
