Before, Cameroonian rappers where too blinded to see that the Pidgin English they had could shake the world when they rap on stages and concerts they attained. Most of the artists became aliens to the western style of raping which was like a whole course to the local dude to go through. You could only see minute traces of rappers raping in Pidgin and if at all there were any, most of them came from B’da, the nursing mother of Cameroon entertainers.
