Another advantage that the duo has going for them is their relatively young age. Both in their twenties, they have both been enjoying the limelight over a year now (Magasco for one has been on top of his game for almost four years).
However, questions that roam our minds are:-

  1. Are They, Friends?
  2. Who pockets more in terms of income?
  3. Who has a better record deal?
  4. Who has more hits?
  5. Who is more international?
  6. Who’s Gonna Win An International Award (MTV, AFRIMMA etc)?
  7. Who has got what it takes to stay Untop the list until the end of Year?
  8. Who is more influential and inspiring?
  9. Are They competitors in the music Industry?
  10. Are They Friends?

They started out with their own musical ambitions and started getting bigger and now they have become real superstars in Cameroon. They both originate from the North West region. Magasco Signed Under Empire Records based in Douala while Mr. Leo signed under Alphabetter Records based in Buea.

These two have both have tour overseas i.e. In Europe and North America (Mr. Leo performed in Canda, whereas Magasco has performed in the USA)

These Two are definitely big machines with incredible talents that have shaped the way the world looks at Cameroon Afropop. Their outputs are always successful, distinctively creative in their own ways. The heavy weights of Cameroon entertainment, these guys create goose bumps with their musical prowess.

One word for them “SUPERSTARS
