Cameroonian artists are set to meet in Yaounde tomorrow, September 9, for a general assembly aimed at electing an executive body.
The Yaounde meeting is a platform set up by Narcisse Mouelle Kombi, Minister of Arts and Culture to govern author’s rights in the country.
It is believed that the new executives will help end the internal squabbles in the management of author’s rights which has been rocking the industry for years now.
Earlier in July 2017, CMC and SOCAM, the two copyrights corporations managing rights of musical artists in Cameroon merged after an agreement signed in Yaoundé on June 10, 2017.
The merger was a follow-up to an instruction by the President of the Republic, Paul Biya contained in a correspondence of the Secretary General of the services of the Prime Minister, Magloire Seraphin Fouda.
