“Coller La Petite” by a young Cameroonian musician, Franko has been banned in the Mifi Division, West Region in a move many believed was aimed at attracting political attention on the prefect of Mifi. However, the divisional administrator said the music has a negative and gross influence on the Cameroonian youths. The decision contained in an order signed by the Senior Divisional Officer, Tangwa Joseph Fover, prohibits the promotion and circulation of this musical track and the video in the Mifi Division. This order indicates that sanctions will be mitted on anybody promoting this popular “Coller Coller” clip in public places like bars, clubs, and market places amongst others or using it in any form or as advertising jingle in the Division.
According to the prefectural order, the Divisional Officers for Bafoussam I, II and III, the Commissioner of the Bafoussam Central Police Station and the Commander of the Bafoussam Gendarmerie Territorial Group will all ensure the effective ban of this indecent clip believed to have an appealing taste to Cameroonian youth. The song that was promoted through social networking sites like WhatsApp, Viber, and Facebook amongst others, has occupied part of discussions in every public youth gatherings. Some easily get angry if the disc jockey of a snack bar or night club do not have the clip, but it is ironical that even in some suburb areas where electricity seldom make hours without blackouts, the song has already gotten an influence as the Disc Jockeys and bar owners use it to attract the attention of the youths.
Some keen observers say the song is common as the chorus of the Cameroon National Anthem on the lips of most youths and even adults. Even before it was played on the popular African Musical Channel, Trace Africa, it was and is very possible to listen to this clip in almost all parts of our towns, taxis and most especially the coming of androids telephones has made things easier for people to listen to the clip or watch the video even as they walk. Worth noting is the fact that kids can sing and dance the pervasive dance moves even better than what has been portrayed in the video. In just a very short while that the song came was released, it can be classified as the most popular song in the country as of now. From September 13th to October 22nd the Video on YouTube and many other social sites has registered over million likes and downloads.
