Georges Dickson

Georges Dickson (on older records "Dikson"), is a well known makossa singer in Cameroon, popular in the late 1980s, early 1990s. His fame does not really reach far beyond the Cameroonian border, which is a pity, because his makossa is fresh and up-tempo.

His album « Ville Morte » was a hugh success at a time when opposition forces managed to shut down economic life in cities like Douala during so-called ghost town actions (opération ville morte). This was done as a means of protest against the government's reluctance to give way for political reforms and free elections in the early 1990s.
