The Doula style of makossa has dominated Cameroon since the 1960s. With Manu Dibango it reached international fame. In The early 70s makossa became electrified with singles cut for nighclubs, in the 80s it became pop makossa produced in Paris. At the top were singers like Moni Bile, Moundy Claude "Petit Pays", Bebe Mange, Ben Decca, Prince Eyango, Douleur and Misse Ngoh. Sam Fan Thomas whose "African Typic Collection" made him the biggest name abroad.
