Africa needs to stimulate the entrepreneurial mindsets of young people, encourage innovative business start-ups, and foster a culture that is friendlier to entrepreneurship and to the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Entrepreneurship refers to an individual's ability to turn ideas into action and is therefore a key competence for all, helping young people to be more creative and self-confident in whatever they undertake." Especially in Cameroon more initiatives are needed to support the „generation now" in their plans in order they can be successful on an international level.
Salome NK: „It seems that i have to accept to not only see myself as an artistic entrepreneur, but also as managerial entrepreneur. Musicians are no longer just "musicians" - we are now entrepreneurs, marketing gurus and branding experts, all rolled up into one. My day has 18hours of work, most of my time i use for marketing purposes, being in touch with my fans on social media, organizing the studio, writing and rehearsing new songs and in between trying to do as much sports as possible for my inner balance. So it's much more than people can see from outside - but i do not complain, i have a goal and i go for it a 100%. My fans are very important for me. With their likes, comments and encouragements they give me a real push. If some already see me as the new icon of cameroons gospel music - i hope just to be a good example and inspiration for others.
