Cameroonian Artistes Gang-Up Against P-square, MTN

Going by the reports reaching from a source in
Cameroon, some Cameroonian artistes
have concluded plan to stage a protest at a
concert P-Square would be performing at
later this month.

According to an e-mail sent to us,
members of Syndicat Camerounais De
Musicien (SYCAMU), a body of the
country's artistes, are protesting against
the huge amount of performance fees
paid foreign artistes who perform in
Cameroon while they (local artistes) get
peanuts as performance fees.

Their grievances is mainly against MTN,
which organises most of the big concerts
in Cameroon.

According to the e-mail, the artistes' body,
through its president, Romeo Dika want a
change in the way its members are treated
by show organisers.

They claim that MTN pays about 200 or
300 million CFA to foreign artistes while
about 30 to 50 million CFA is paid to local
Cameroonian artistes.

They have now concluded plans and
strategies to stage a protest on May 18th
when P-Square would be performing at a
concert in the country.
