Modeling Or Pointless Nudity? #237ModelingEvolution

Always thought we had a couple of more years but well, I guess the android generation cannot wait to take it off. So since we are here, we might as well address the elephant in the room!

Focus: 237 Fashion Industry

Looking at how far we have come in terms of entertainment in general,I can’t help but give a round of applause to all those who worked tirelessly to get the industry to this point. However we just ain’t there yet and might not get there in long time if we don’t fix all that’s holding us back. As always, this is my opinion! (This week the focus is on the Fashion Industry. Movie and Music industry will follow consequently!)

KMER CANON LORDS!!!

Today we celebrate the amazing photographers behind the bold and beautiful pictures that flood the Cameroonian scene and social media. Personally, I am so glad that the stereotype often attached to photographers and photography as being  “just a pass time”, “a mean job” and even “a mediocre and cheap way to make small money” has become a thing of the past in Cameroon.

Photography like music and film in the country has experienced a rebirth and has been redefined over time. I applaud photography as an art in the way the pictures tell a story. As a science, in the way every ray of light has a role to play in perfecting the final picture and as a practical skill with regards to the talent of the man behind the camera.The common adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” is indeed true and so far Cameroonian Photographers have perfected the art of communicating feelings, emotions, culture, mood and what have you in their amazing photos. I picked my six favorite photographers in Cameroon for this article; hope you agree with me on this selection.

She is Chantal Eddie. A female photographer who prides herself in  elegant and quality pictures that portray true beauty and celebrates womanhood. She is a canon Queen;A well deserving one at that.

 

Meet Penjo Baba! All hail the “Baba” of wedding photography and video coverage. Ever since he introduced his work, weddings have a new touch of class and grandeur. Elegant,different and beautiful, Penjo Photography captures the most important day in your life and freezes time and emotion forever.

 

Meet Kelly Blaise Achu! Based in the South West region where the entertainment industry is booming, he sure is the “it”guy.He has a different and interesting angle to artistic photography and he also captures the epic moments in his wedding photos.

 

Meet William Nsai! He has creative shots and one of the most fascinating under water shots too. He has worked with several models and artist and besides photography he directs videos too. Young, energetic and a killer mind for fine photography, William Nsai is indeed a Cameroonian Treasure. Continue reading

She is the face of Numero Uno boutique and was also the winner of Miss Cameroon Regional 2014 for the North West region although she later pulled out of the competition for professional reasons. I know for sure though that this is one competition the mega model will hold out till the end and definitely win!. OK, just in case you are not as obsessed with these kind of stuff , here is recap of what the competition is about and the events that led to this moment.

Cameroon as a West African country is part of the race to find ‘the’ Miss West Africa 2016. Selection and screening of aspirants was done months ago and the short listed girls had a week filled with activities and elimination at the Semme Beach Hotel Limbe Cameroon. These activities involved intellectual  tests, knowledge of our culture, cooking skills, and pageant guidelines.  Online campaigns were made and the public got a chance to vote to keep their favorite Miss in the running. Saturday 24th was the set date for the final during which Miss Fodje Jency received the crown from the now former Miss West Africa Cameroon,the beautiful Miss Nsang Dilong. Miss Fodje Jency is now charged with the responsibility to represent Cameroon in the Grand Finale scheduled to take place in Senegal. She will be needing all the support you guys can give her to make her dream and that of this country come true! You Go Girl!! God and Us got Ur back! And just a word to those of you who feel like your dreams seem far fetched because you are where you are right now, let Jency and all other Cameroonian youths who are making their dreams, their reality right here in this country be all the inspiration you need! #YouAreAmazing #TeamMaFoj (Only pemexans will get that last hashtag doh! lol) #GoGetThem
