Cameroon flag in new Kizz Daniel clip sparks controversy
Nigerian artist Kizz Daniel recently released the video of his hit song “Buga”. In the caravan-style video, where multiple flags were displayed including Cameroon’s flag, which was held by Nigerian Comedian Sabinus.
The gesture has however become a trending topic on Cameroon’s social media space with many expressing their joy over the featured flag. While some Cameroonians are happy to be a part of the hit song through the flag, others think it is primitive and no news.
Where Journalist, Ebot Taku wrote: “Cameroon flag! You guys are still to understand Nigeria and marketing. They know you love their songs. And you will forever do…” he said.
And a similar reaction was expressed by YouTuber, Mister Jaay Njoya who said it was a lesson Cameroonian entertainers should take. “Can’t hate someone doing it better than you imagine. Draw closer and receive sense. It’s okay to say u don’t know and wanna learn. No shame in that game,” he stated.
While, Cameroonian blogger Ndicho Boris holds that, “Sabinus is highly followed by Cameroonians. He wasn’t used on the Buga video just for fun, it was very strategic,” Ndicho Boris said.
To him, “the TikTok vibe of Buga demography shows that Anglophone Cameroonians especially ladies chant the song but this same set of people are unable to chant and glorify a project of a Cameroonian artist.”
The trend comes at a time when Cameroonian comedian, CY Old Pancho is leading a campaign to enforce the agenda of more local content being promoted and less foreign content in his 80/20 campaign.
On the other hand, some Cameroonians have taken this as an opportunity to rube the trend in the entertainer’s face.
Note that, the Buga song is Africa’s most popular song at the moment with even popular stars jumping on its trending challenge.
It’s a happy theme spiced by Kizz Daniel and Tekno’s amazing vocals and now, an amazing video, making it irresistible.
