At ABEBOH, we believe that our Music reflects and shapes us as people. How we behave, how we reflect, and how we act is affected by the music we listen to. A sense of communal Identity is found and shared in Music. Therefore our music is our heritage and our culture. Through our music, we identify with our people. We believe that music is food for the soul. As an artist, a producer, a DJ, a music lover, Nges Brian discovered that there was a need to bring to existence a place on the Internet to maintain, support, and grow Africa music with the goal to solve the major problems faced by the African Music Industry such as; Music Distribution, copyright, music Streaming, and Piracy. Muzikol is an online music Market and social Network built with the vision to meet all the needs of the Africa music industry. Muzikol connects Musicians with music lovers to deepen their relationship and grow the market for the African Music Industry. Muzikol is a virtual music community built to meet the demands of the music industry and solve the problems faced by music lovers and all players in the music industry. We do this by building the first digital music market embedded into a social network.

MUMA was developed to give our industry hope, and reclaim African awards for well deserved African artists.

Members of the committee have proven excellence in their different areas of acting in the entertainment industry over the past years. Members of these committees have proven to have a deep and diverse understanding of Cameroon and the African Music Industry. Members of these Committees are selected by the Muzikol Music Awards team from critically analyzing the music Industry, sampling selected Music Stakeholders, and getting their nominations into the panel. Members of the committees shall be announced to the public atleast three months after the award ceremony has taken place.
