His take on Music Entrepreneurship in Cameroon
The entrepreneurial ecosystem in Cameroon is changing. Due to high rate of underemployment and unemployment experienced by youths, and the quest for sustainable wellbeing to cater for themselves and their loved ones, they are embarking on entrepreneurial initiatives. This is evident particularly in the music industry in Cameroon, as Africa seeks to take over the global music industry.
It is imperative to assert that policy makers and related stakeholders should support the music industry in Cameroon by providing and developing frameworks (offline and online) to boost youths creativity and entrepreneurship through awards, patent rights and investment schemes, this will enable them drive through their entrepreneurial journey.
