Since the last election campaign that led Cameroonians to the polls on October 7th, several actions will be undertaken in the Diaspora by a group of people determined to make the international atmosphere unlivable to any public person who has openly supported the campaign of the incumbent candidate. CPDM, His Excellency Paul Biya.
Between the people targeted, there would be traditional leaders and a long list of musicians, now tagged sardine musicians.These are the ones who had participated in a mega concert held at the Yaoundé Sports Palace in the last week of the campaign; concert dedicated to supporting the CPDM candidate’s campaign.
Thus, in recent days, we have read on social networks messages like:
“Any diaspora show promoter who still programs SARDINARDS artists will be boycotted until its bankruptcy.”
“The diaspora must no longer finance the economy of INGRATS and SARDINARDS”.
This is not the first time we hear such decisions from an African diaspora community stand up against their musicians, you would have heard about Congolese fighters (DRC) boycotting for several years local musicians who have supported piblically the scheme in place.
Below, the list of Cameroonian musicians who would be targeted by these actions.
