Amidst promoting her latest record in Cameroon, the singer repeated statements she made a year earlier to Voice of America, which immediately sparked major controversy in the country.
Charlotte Dipanda He spoke again about the political rotation in Cameroon. It was on May 14, 2021 in Douala, during a press conference held as part of the presentation of his new album titled CD In stores since last February. The successful singer answered a question related to the reception that her opinion received in the political life of Cameroon.
In these comments made on May 22, 2020 in the program “You + we” The Cameroonian music star announced on the Voice of America (VOA): “I only knew the current president. What is it good for me to have another suggestion, to tell myself that it is another era that has inevitably ended and that we need to see what this country can offer this different young man because he is a young man who is also open to the outside, who sees what is happening outside , He who has a duty, however, hopes for it also for his country. I think the time has come to offer us something else. It is time for Cameroon to develop. Because as long as there is no rotation, no real development is possible. I think the current situation has come to an end. What he can offer to Cameroon and that, in all humility, he will benefit from making room for a new rule. Without malice. “.
His remarks sparked much controversy within the audience, with proponents of the style rebuking him, often in a blunt way, for his stance. A year later, the citizen of Yaoundé has not changed her mind. “There was nothing to be ashamed of as a citizen, not as a singer. As a citizen I think that no one can take away our right to talk about our society since we live in it. This is to say how much the problems of this country worry me because they concern you. I may be wrong to say something. I have it. I have it. Truth. But you cannot take the right to say what I believe. It was not implanted by science, and I did not oppose anything to anyone. I thought it was like everything. “, Sets out Dipanda as if to reassure those who had sent arrows to him at the time.
Charlotte Dybanda confirms that she was not launching a personal attack. She believes that the majority of her citizens have understood her well. “I’ve been doing this business for 20 years, and I had an idea to figure out how things were going elsewhere, to take what might be better elsewhere and put it back into my business and simply what I was saying was not personal at all. After the debate went everywhere. But a lot of people get it that others don’t understand. You don’t always have to want things to go one way. This difference is what makes discussion fun. “.
She reiterated the necessity of handing over the current leaders of the country. She says she is convinced it must go without saying. “I was born in this country with the same performance, and I aspire to the best. He is a human being even if the best is not necessarily the one who will solve all our problems, but it is the human instinct that wants us to take a step forward, and say to ourselves:” It was time with this, And now it’s time with Charlotte, and tomorrow he’s going to be with someone else. For me, there is actually no debate. “Charlotte Debanda concludes.
