Ndedi Eyango a Cameroon ace US-base artist, has categorically declared that he will never perform in any SDF event even if he is paid millions. Eyango made the vow recently in an exclusive interview he granted The Guardian Post in Houston, Texas.
“I can never perform at an SDF ceremony, no matter how many millions they would want to offer me. I don’t share or believe in the SDF doctrine or philosophy. On the contrary, I can perform at any CPDM ceremony free of charge and even later surrender any money offered me at the concert for the running of CPDM party affairs,” Eyango, who is Honorary Adviser of the CPDM-USA Section, said without mincing words.
When asked about his relationship with Cameroon’s presidential couple and if he is the guardian of Brenda Biya, President Biya’s daughter, in the US, Eyango answered: “I am sorry to disappoint you and your readers because I have no answer for that question. There are some things that I do not like to talk about publicly because I have the right to my private life.”However, Eyango described Cameroon’s First Lady, Chantal Biya, as a woman coming from a humble background.
According to Ndedi Eyango , Chantal Biya’s humbleness reflects in all her actions, especially in the domain of charity. He claims Chantal Biya is a good example for people to see that one does not have to be the child of a minister to be where she is.
BaretaNews thinks that musicians should stay off politics especially when they need all Cameroonians to support them. Showing support to one politically party openly is a bad business strategy which could anger a sector of their fans. It is normal for musicians to have political affiliations but I think they should leave that during voting. However, this will not be true in western democracies, people do not really care whom you support but go for your music. BaretaNews is not sure if same will be true in the Cameroons especially the manner in which the statement was said.
God is still saying something
