Top 10 Cameroonian Urban Artists to Watch

Okayafrica presents the Top 10 Cameroonian Urban Artists to Watch


From Manu Dibango to Richard Bona and Andy Allo, Cameroon has its fair share of international music stars.

With the increasing exposure of technology, and the current success of "afrobeats" among other things, the landscape is changing.
