Except for that one stubborn YouTube video that is seen on the first page and position on Google, Clinton Njie is clean. At the time of writing this post, I googled “Clinton Njie” and just one stubborn video about the scandal was found on the first page. I thought ‘may be he made use of an online reputation management service’.
Then I searched for “Njie Clinton”, I got some more YouTube videos and few headlines from some blogs. I thought ‘maybe the reputation management agency is not doing much’. Maybe they are still working behind the scene.
The entertainment industry in Cameroon is stained with scandals once in a while. How the scandals are managed online in particular leaves much to be desired. The celebrities actually ‘hit the iron while it’s still hot’. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way for everything.
The tendency is that most of them say or do too much having no clue of the situation they are putting themselves into. Let me not even talk of their PRs – who are at times more celebrity than them. They need someone to manage their own reputation [giggling].
As an artiste with a great following, it is very certain that the road will not be smooth. Scandals, rumors, negative press and so on will make the road bumpy. If you have it in mind that it has to happen, then you should keep your backpack of missiles to use when it happens.
