Most often we talk so much about the world not paying attention to our content . We often think the world is ignoring us or not wanting to give us a spot in the entertainment market . The Big Question is , what are we really exporting to the world ??

Manu Dibango was never snubbed , Richard Bona was never snubbed , Prince Nico was never snubbed  .  Why is the world snubbing is just now ??? 

On a Post made by Jovi on his Facebook page , he mentioned that we lack information on a lot of things and our first Goal should be Best or highest Quality . 

What is the Quality of our music ?  How is our production like ? Do we have the best producers ? Best  recording studios and equipments ?  How are our songs like ?  You might have a great song but if the production is poor , it might not get to a certain level .  Production wise can CAMEROON stand Nigeria ? It’s a no . Can they stand Ghana ? It is almost a No .   In 2017 , Jovi’s 16 wives album was reviewed by one of the world’s renowned music magazine and it was among the best  30 albums released world wide .  This is Quality . This is a magazine that knows almost everything about music and if they place your Album  on the 30th position world wide then your music is good .  This is what we should export . Best Quality or highest Quality .  If we do the normal things . We will get lost in the crowed and we won’t go anywhere. 

What is the Quality of our Music Videos ?  We can compare only with Ivory Coast , Gabon , Congo and other CEMAC countries . That’s why at times for MTV Base to accept a video from CAMEROON , there must be a bit of French in it . In that way they compare it to French countries  whether they can broadcast.  If it is purely English , they will compare it to Nigeria , South Africa and Ghana and it will be below level and they might not pick it .  Our music videos are still poor ,some have poor coloring , no story line and shot on poor Cameras .  Is this the Quality we want to export ? How then do we stand out ????

If truly we want to go Global , highest or best quality should be our first goal then we work on getting the right information on how to get it out there .  If we have the best or highest Quality then employ the services of experts on marketing and distributing our content , we are definitely getting a spot in the Global Market . 

Richard Bona once said “ There is a level that you get that people can’t resist you .sometimes you need to raise the bar so high that others won’t be able to touch it . “ 

Let’s work on the best or highest Quality . That should be our first Goal truly .
