THE HUGE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE NIGERIAN AND CAMEROONIAN CELEB POWER

Something we have always found rather amusing and quite sad at the same time is the response that Cameroonian 'celebs' get from the Cameroonian crowd on social media especially.

Whilst it seems the Nigerian online community are very receptive of their stars (albeit they do voice their opinions when they need to) with many likes and comments and retweets on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, the Cameroon stars on the otherhand are even lucky if they get just a fraction of such response. What a big shame isn't it?

Take for example the below image with a simple caption posted by Davido on his Facebook Page...in just over 30 minutes see how many likes and comments the dude received...


Oh yes there is the excuse that there are millions more Nigerians than Cameroonians...but we have less stars than Nigeria so why not all join forces and back what we have than create camps and gangs? Ah the other excuse is that Cameroon has no celeb culture...but who creates or should create that culture? Are we saying there is not even 1 or 2 or a handful that can be deemed celebs? Are we saying that Cameroon is that backward? Are we saying there are no talents in Cameroon worth 'bigging' up always? Did Nigeria not create theirs themselves?

If you want to see the majority of Cameroonians react on social media, just start a negative thread that brings down a personality who is currently trending and watch how they jump at it with retweets, comments and replies. But post something positive and the majority would not bat an eyelid. The je m'en fous attitude has got to go.

Wake up Cameroon. Wake up Cameroonians...

Well said .Cameroonian stars also should humble themselves and appreciate their crowd as the niaja's r doing.

Of course there is a problem with camer fans BUT ALSO with celebes themselves ! For example how many of them have an Instagram account ? The fact with naija celebs is that we WANT to know what is going on in their life ! But Camer celebs mainly interact with their fans when it's just for promoting their music so... We have to blame both parts.

PS : Excuse my english.
