Erstwhile actress, humanitarian talks about foundation

Journalist Ernest Kanjo first interviewed Nina Marie in 2008. The then Editor-in-Chief of Among Youths and actress/model at the time, had met in a face-to-face talk in the magazine’s newsroom in Yaounde. That was probably the last professional encounter both people had until February of 2020 when they met again, this time on a different platform – Apex 1 Radio.

During the 60-minutes conversation on ON BOARD WITH ERNEST KANJO, now based in Vancouver, Canada, explained that after her short career in acting, she had driven her wheel across other fields, including translation and social works.

Thanks to her education in Social Works, coupled with her practice in the field, the actress in SAMBA, TV series currently airing on Africa Magic Showcase, got inspired to join the league of Africans who provide smiles to vulnerable populations. To that effect, Nina Marie, in August 2019, created the Nina Marie Child & Youth Foundation to cater for the needs of the underprivileged.

The humanitarian was in the United States for a Winter visit. Her first stop was Columbus, Ohio and second, Maryland.

The art of telling stories through motion pictures is unarguably the most interesting, yet effective way of conveying a message. STRAY is a movie with a serious story. Guests to its premiere in Buea last Saturday, affirm the producers and the actors who interpret the story, packaged it suitably enough. The rest of this assertion would be confirmed after watching the Palmer Ngale Mbua film. Five days after the official outing, we come back to the event through which STRAY was presented to the public for the first time. Apex 1 Radio picked up high moments of the Buea Mountain Hotel red carpet event and in a 30-minute package, we bring them to you.

As true as it could be, that communication in contemporary times is more of visual, radio, pioneer in the electronic media landscape, has stood its grounds, why not the test of times. The strength of radio was and is still such that the power behind the voice, generates implacable images on the mind. In the process, we visualize the stories with absolute ease. This feeling is the handiwork of people whose faces, for long and until revealed by contemporary concepts (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, etc), had always been a mystery – call them radio hosts/presenters/broadcasters. Until you feel what they do, it’s hard to understand the aroma that comes with passion for radio. But more to that, the contribution radio and its hosts make to the development of the community (proximity radio in this case) and to society at large, is unquantifiable. As these professionals reflect on how to keep this age-old form of broadcasting waxing on, let us wish them a happy World Radio Day. Happy World Radio Day therefore!
NB: Join us on Apex 1 Radio – this Saturday at 7:30am EST (1:30pm in Buea) for a special radio show dubbed RADIO & RADIO PEOPPLE (Radio for radio people and by radio people!)
