Socio-political crisis: the artists' solution for a way out of the crisis
Cameroonians receptive to this incessant desire for peace? It is still very difficult to answer this question. But if we look at the recent events in the northwest and southwest, it is clear that the decibels of reconciliation do not produce the effect hoped for by these singers of the peace.
But the collective "Stand for peace" does not claim to be able to settle definitively the problems that cross Cameroon, according to the artists who make up this movement, it "is not to passively suffer the events, but to try to bring as a Cameroonian, his stone to the construction of a dynamic of reconciliation " According to our colleagues in Repères en Kiosque this Wednesday, May 22, 2019, the collective "Stand for peace" is an initiative of music producer Georges Williams Betoka.
According to the latter it is a "response by artists to the problems facing Cameroon, including the Anglophone crisis and hate speech that are of worrying proportions in social networks." He asserts.
Recently, the movement received the unconditional support of international artist Sally Nyolo. UNICEF's ambassador on child marriage admits she no longer recognizes the country where she was born "Cameroon until the beginning of my career was a country that shone by the force of its artists, by its culture that was seen internationally.
