The Best Cameroon Songs of All time (OLD TIMERS)

Bonjour à tous mes frères et soeurs Camerounais et Bon fête de 20 Mai. J'espere que vous amuse bien. For those who are not Cameroonians. Today is Cameroon's 53th Independence Day (National Day). So I decided to put together some of my favorite old school Cameroonian songs. Trust me it wasn't easy to narrow it down to 20 coz I had over 100 great songs on my list. I have always loved Cameroon music, from makossa to nzenge to mapoka to slows duala songs. The most beautiful thing about Cameroon Music is, even though you don't understand a word of what is being sang, you still feel, enjoy and dance to the songs. This is dedicated to all my beautifully made Cameroonians. I love you all and I couldn't have asked to be born in any other Country. Hmmm to miss out on all this great music? #HellNOOO!. Hope you enjoy what I have put together. Cameroon has was that the most talented and culturally diversed Musicians and I know our generation is getting there. Have fun dance, sing along and remember the great childhood you had. #ONE LOve
