Despite earlier enthusiasm for the selection event among artists, some lapses such as poor sensitization and lack of zeal on the part of some artists accounts for the lack of contestants in some disciplines. As a result, most disciplines registered less than the required number to be selected for the upcoming festival.

Regional Delegate of Arts and Culture, Dr. François Edimo, said the competition followed the roles and prescriptions as laid down by the Ministry of Arts and Culture. “In musical heritage, for instance, before we issue a mark we saw to it that the instruments in use are those used by the people for that very purpose and that it is accompanied by a song and dancing as it is done by the people. As concerns the choir it must observe originality, rhythm and the singing must be harmonious as it is done by a group of choristers.”
