#RETRO237 or when a hashtag becomes a trending topic

If you made your way around Cameroonian twitter last night, or #twitter237 as we affectionately call it, you would have witnessed a full on party. Cameroonians all over the world shared, via the hashtag, old hits that have marked the country’s musical scene. It was a night full of fun and reminiscence that brought the whole community together. Youtube links were passed around like hot cakes, people shared stories and we saw a genuine outpouring of love for Cameroonian music.
