Motherland Empire CEO Martin Enow calls on Cameroonians to boycott foreign artists concerts in Cameroon

The CEO of Motherland Empire, Martin Enow took to Facebook to call on Cameroonians to boycott concerts of foreign artist in Cameroon. Martin wrote: 
"NEVER SAY NEVER but in this case I can say NEVER. I have NEVER attended the concert of a foreign artist in Cameroon without the participation of home based artists headlining as well and I will NEVER do so. We have got so many artists & supers stars who can do great things as well and even greater than the foreign artists they bring to us time & again who take away tones of our millions @ the detriment of our home based acts who get paid peanuts. Next time they bring foreign artists without the proper participation of home based acts I think no one should attend such concerts. #CameroonIsNotADumpingGround Let’s#OpenOurEyes"

  2. Last I checked Stanley Enow just did a concert with Wizkid for millions is it before or after then you decided to think about other Cameroon artist? Hypocrites you guys are part of the initial problem.

  3. When your brother learn to rap and stop talking about being king every day, we will attend his concerts. We prefer foreigners and other Cameroonian artists because they change and give every body what they need...

  5. Lol these Anonymous people have no brains. He is right. Cameroon has many artists that can headline shows and make a lot of money. Magasco, Stanley, Jovi, Locko, Mr Leo etc etc. Most camer artists can't boost of a house, talkless of a car. Yet cameroonians spend tons of their money on people like P-square who own private jets. #smh.

  6. You must be made for saying something like this. So if great Cameroonian artists like Richard Bona, Manu Dibango and West Madiko happen to organize concerts in America whites shouldn't attend cuz they have their own great artist? Or if I hear that Jayz or Joe Cole is coming to Cameroon for a show I shouldn't attend cuz we have our own artist here? You Don surely drink piss. They are stars and they are super stars. You don't expect Super stars to be sharing the stage with some mediocre Cameroon Artist because the show is on their country.

  7. All u talking contrary to martin enow's statement are soo dumb and full of shit. he didn't say motherland artists but all artists in Cameroon, I don't care if Stanley raps or not but I know he's a big name in Cameroon pop music so don't hate on a brother. You who thinks Cameroonian artists are mediocre i know u are more dumb, Nigerian music is what it is because they did exactly what martin is trying to say, dig some info on eedris and 50 cent back in the day in Nigeria and the impact it had on the industry later on.

  8. First of all, I respect all your opinionated comments on this issue. I may have to differ from some of your viewpoints because most of you are being emotional and not rational in your judgements of what Martin meant. The guy simply wants the best for Cameroonian artist and now I don't see what's so difficult to get in that. He was smart enough not to call names because he spoke about Cameroonian artists as a whole. Most of you didn't probably read between the lines...the main phrase you probably missed out or didn't comprehend is "I have NEVER attended the concert of a foreign artist in Cameroon WITHOUT THE PARTICIPATION OF HOME BASED ARTISTS HEADLINING AS WELL...". It simply means Cameroonian artists must perform in these concerts alongside these foreign artist to unravel their talents. There is empirical evidence that this method has worked in many countries and particularly Nigeria. We just need to change our mentality, we're way too biased. We are throwing punches at Martin Enow but I know some you will ask why a ticket to a concert of Mr Leo is 5000frs whereas you won't bother paying that same amount to attend Flavour's concert and not even get a seat or a drink. I boycotted Flavour's concert in Buea for the same reason. Magasco organised a concert in Douala last year and even made it literally gratis by giving away a copy of his CD to each person who bought a ticket. The interesting part? the ticket was just 1000frs. Some sponsors are to blame for some of problems. They believe that only well known artists can give their brands the exposure and they really need thereby drawing in more customers. Well, if we brand and replenish Our Cameroonian artists are priceless so let's pay them higher than foreign artists. Some of the blame goes to the sponsors who prefer to use foreign artists to get more exposure and thereby making more money through advertising their brands. They can brand and replenish Cameroonian artists to have a higher value and public perception. These guys don't even get rewarded for their talents but i love their pessimism and endurance. It's sad that you can run into some of these well known artists trekking in the streets, in taxi cabs and even at local chilling spots and maybe that's why they get paid so little because some of them settle for less than they're worth. I don't want to call any names or blame them for anything but you definitely know some of them. I know some people will get back at me with comments but if you must insult my honest opinion, at least don't do so cowardly posting your comment anonymously because it won't be worth my time reading it. I don talk ma own... I join Martin Enow in the fight. We've had enough of these foreign products coming in. It's high time we closed our borders and listen to aesthetic and pure Cameroonian talents.

  10. Honestly he has a point. I mean Cameroonians promote foreign music alot. I dont blame dem though. Even our companies MTN and the rest will prefer Nigeroan musicians to promote their product. Meanwhile our talented artist are being sidelined.
    On the other hand Martin same appliees to your Junior brother. He keeps paying to do collabos with foreign artist. As well as he is always well recieved out of the Country. So to me its a difficult situation all together.
