Cameroon’s ‘Special Forces’ Storm Naira Marley Show, Cancel Event


Naira Marley's Valentine concert which  was scheduled to hold In Cameroon was canceled after the country's special forces disrupted the event.


It was gathered that the show was cancelled due to opposition by Cameroon's indigenous artists.


The organisers of the event had earlier announced a change of venue for the event as they claim they had some issues with the original proposed venue. 


A music journalist Joey Akan however alleged that some musicians indigenous to Cameroon made a case against Naira Marley to ensure the concert was cancelled after venues had been changed up to three times.


He wrote:

“Yesterday, a Naira Marley concert scheduled to hold in Cameroon didn’t happen. Special Forces Soldiers flooded the venue and chased everyone away, despite Marley being in the country ready to hit the stage,” Akan wrote in a Twitter thread.

“Why? Hate and beef from Cameroonian artists. For months, there has been a growing anti-Nigerian movement, with many disgruntled entertainers calling for a ban on Nigerian music.
