The Cameroon movie industry is gradually climbing the ladder of success as professionalism is setting in. We have been amazed by the quality of movies and videos we produce lately in the industry. Cameroonian producers, directors, writers etc are taking this body to the next level by embracing professionalism and among those who are taking this great step is Agbor Obed who is the C.E.O ZUMHOO Studio Works. He has been selected to take part in the “One Fine Day Film” workshop in Nairobi, Kenya, slated for September 16th to September 29th 2013.
Before being selected for this program he has worked as a video editor and broadcaster for STV Douala and on many TV Shows, short and feature films which include “The Meet Hansel Show”, “Hom Breeze”, “Bara Extravaganza”, “Family Tussle”, “The Zumhoo’s How To Guide”, and his breakthrough short comedy film, “Cold Feet (Slack Man)”. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BJ4KaK14fA).
He applied as a director on the Workshop and was asked to send an original short comedy film of not more than 1 minute. This he wrote and directed under the multimedia production house, ZUMHOO Studio Works.
The One Fine Day Film workshops are a joint project by DW Akademie, ONE FINE DAY FILMS and GINGER INK. The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Film und Medienstiftung NRW, the Goethe-Institut Kenya and ARRI Film & TV Services.

A sigh of releas
e. That is what Adah”s fans will heave when they get this. Adah“s highly – anticipated “Nyango” album will be released online on 27 November this year. This is according to the artist on a social network site. Since the release of his highly – popular hit single “Nyango”, fans have been expecting a full – fledged album which has not been forthcoming although the star has been busy releasing other tracks, featuring and producing. This announcement is an indication that the wait is finally over for fans.

Makossa veteran Ben Decca is set to mark his 30 year – romance with music. This will be done through a concert on October 06, 2012 in Nanterre, France. As the eldest of the Decca clan, the three others being Grace, Dora and Isaac, Ben has been a consistent and true advocate of good Makossa. He proved this again recently
when he released a track titled ” Makossa phoenix” in which sound-wise and lyrically he showed his devotion to the authentic Makossa that has been so lacking in recent years on the Cameroonian music scene. Despite all the accolades and plaudits the artist has garnered over the years, it is regrettable that this 30th anniversary celebration will be held abroad, and not in Cameroon the homeland of the Makossa he so proudly and strongly advocates. That said, more grease to his vocal cords as he will need it to explore his rich repertoire come October 6.
Fans will soon get their usual fix of Valsero's activist rap. The rapper's new album is set for official release on September 30, 2012. This info was recently made known by the artist via facebook. His new musical offering is titled “L'appel du peupleng>” and will be officially launched during the Sunday primetime show Jambo T.V. on Canal 2. This will be followed on October 6 by a concert in Yaounde to present the album. If General Valsero (as he now likes to be called) is still true to himself, it wouldn't take a magician to know that this latest album is riddled with political and activist – themed songs. Just the album title seems to be a direct reply to a political publication of the same name. Those who follow the news will know what I am talking about. Whatever the case, we wish him nothing but hits, billboard hits if you see what I mean.
