“Ego & Prido” reveal the hidden face of Labels in Cameroon (SEE HERE).
Ego & Prido give an insight into labels in Cameroon. They narrated nasty expriences. Read:
“…This is only the fruit of our experience in the musical environment. An environment made up of people who do anything to sign artists. Artists like us, young and aware of their talent. But what people don’t know is that behind the smiles, laughs, dance, we live sadly. Sadly because when a major person contacts us to control all our royalties, it’s a problem. When guys in music contact us to make us believe that we can pop, that’s a problem.
Music is an art that must be respected. It’s not normal to sign an artist, giving nothing and making nothing available. But when he claims, the owners ask questions.
When we were signed, we lived naively, putting everything in the hands of the owners, we were focused on the music. A monumental mistake that put us in a bad psychological state.
Music will remain our passion. We could no longer evolve in an environment where someone dictates because he injects into your music.
Finally, we made up our minds, stopped crying, talking, stopped meaningless contracts. We created our label to control everything, to do as we want and as we think.
Today, we have nothing but an EP, a trophy from MTN Zik Awards, streams close to 500k and thousands of views on the Social media. We know that thanks to your support, we will go far!
We conclude: labels are good, but labels without a vision are unserious. Mortgaging the careers is serious. To label executives, let the artists speak, to artists, do your job and demand what’s in your contracts. To independent artists, Go! Life is ahead, music is life! Zanga!
