Why don't Cameroonians wear deodorant?

As shared by a KB reader...
I have traveled to quite a number of countries, and none comes close to Cameroon in the smelly sector! No Joke! Everyone knows this, and I just can’t understand why Cameroonians don't use deodorant!
As soon as I walked in at Douala Airport this morning, I knew I had arrived. Whiffs from everywhere. Pungent odors assaulting the nostrils, smells competing with other smells. 
With the type of smells you get in Cameroon, you can almost paint a picture of the person. These smells are as tall and bold as they are pungent. If you have never experienced it, don’t bother imagining it because you can never paint a near accurate picture.
You know you can tell how many Cameroonians are in a room with your eyes closed. OMG! You can detect odor 1, odor 2, odor 3….
Think of Syria and Sarin gas! That kind of need-a-gas-mask smell. WMD chemical weapons grade…prepared in a laboratory. You’ve won the war Cameroon, now kindly turn off the chemical weapons. Geesh!
I can just imagine the armpits are unshaven and the odors have been cooked over several days. It’s not just about deodorant and the tropical country. There must be a hygiene aspect to it, I don’t think we can really blame this one on the poor government. Shave every week and wash several times daily.

I for one, don’t use antiperspirants, because I am scared of them blocking my pores and leading to cancer and all other stuff. I only use deodorants, but it takes a while for smells to ever build even with the mildest attention to the armpit.
And if you do not have deodorant or do not like to use it, be conscious of your armpit for heavens-sake. Visit the bathroom couple of times a day and swab it with soap. That does the trick.
I love Cameroon, but damn, many of you stink!

  12. If this is your way to fame on social media them you failed...and btw you are rude and insane and more disgusting than your terrible article. Take it offline Asap. The only one thing that has definitely been smelling everywhere you go is that rotten 'toomboo-teeth' mouth of yours. You are a sad person so keep it to yourself.
