Salatiel defends Anglophone artists who sing in French

CEO and founder of Alpha Better Records, Salatiel took to social media to defend Anglophone Musicians who sing in French. The following is what he wrote:

I hate long talks but on this issue I think I will be a little longer than usual.
This is to all those uninformed and ungrateful over sabi online critics complaining about anglophones singing in French... wekeh!
We live in a country that is 80:20% francophone to anglophone population and 250 dialeths. For any business person that analysis tells it all.We are Cameroonian artists, not anglophone artists.
The reason we break grounds and put English phrases on the mouth of every Cameroonian from the bottom to the top even to the presidency; phrases like "E go better", "Don petite soeur dey for rendez-vous any thing you want am na fap kolo", ".... if u carry belle my sister is beg no troway", "I don waka no be small......" just to name a few and countless from Jovi LeMonstre is because we do songs understood 100% by francophones and anglophones, & to me that is genius and the reason why some people pass some one dem.Maybe you did not know "I am Salatiel" Father from Kribi (Batanga) and mother from Mamfé (bayangi) but today I am considered 100% anglophone because I want it that way. I am Cameroonian.

This comes after some fans critized an Alpha Better Records artist, Mr Leo for singing in French in his latest single "Kemayo".
