Fans slam Magasco for Unity Palace Christmas party performance amidst Anglophone strike. Magasco reacts!

Earlier today, we reported that on Tuesday December 20, 2016 Magasco aka Bamenda Boy performed at Unity Palace's annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony organised by Cameroon's first lady, Chantal Biya.

Some of Magasco's fans reacted to the news by calling the Wule Bang Bang singer a traitor. and also called for his music to be boycotted. This reaction from fans is fueled by the current struggle going on between the Cameroon government and Cameroon's English speaking region where Magasco is from. 
Magasco reacted to the backlash from his fans by posting the following message on his Facebook page...
To my falor brethren I heard some tension cause of my appearance at Presidencial end of year party.note that in this business we sign some contracts 8months before time.i have been supportive on our peaceful struggle am sorry if I disappoint any one it's not of my making.Bamenda flows in my blood and am still part of our voice for US TO BE TREATED FAIRLY.thank u #Peace I keep praying for my country

  3. Wow....so when a contract is signed 8months before there is no turning back eh...?? Which means there are no clauses which even protect you or your interest....what if you were just sick and lying on a hospital bed,what if you lost a close family member,what if..... what if ?? Will you go on because in that business shit happens ??? Livam so bro,Na ur chop u go finam...and am OK with that but all this gibberish about contracts signed before when don't hold water.

    1. É hold water tight enough. Anglophone striking can never appear as a clause in a contract to spare the artist if he doesn't show up. USE YOUR HEAD!!!

  5. this guy is not honest. he is simply looking for a reason to justify himself. note that he did not say he signed the contract 8 months ahead. he said in the biz they sometimes sign the contract 8 months ahead. he shd say directly that it applies to this case. he loves money more than the blood of his fellow people

  9. At least his reaction was respectful and somewhat understandable. Unlike Mr Leo who told me "Mr career will end because there's war?"

  10. Weh people, so e no go work again, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion or views. By d way have any of u resigned from your jobs because of the strike, don't civil servants whose salaries come from the same government still go out there to work. Even the government teachers on strike were the first to line up for their salaries, but wuna no want make artist fend for himself or his family...

    1. Weeeeh i need to know you for give u 1 cola for this talk. Same thing on my mind. Hypocrites!! After parents have suffered to raise school fees for the academic year, their kids are home, ive not heard of any teacher rejecting their salary or proprietors refunding the fees. I see them living good life abroad running their mouths. Unity my foot.
