Music could be said to be the epicenter of art. It is present in every other form of art and used in for everything, everywhere by everybody. Therefore, music is everyone’s culture. That perhaps, explain why its industry has the tendency of staying afloat under every circumstance, even when others face difficult times. When he created this recognition concept, Valery Atia (entertainment promoter and blogger) aimed at consolidating the frontline posture of music and at the same time, pay tribute to the people who make the art and its industry tick. Over the years, URBAN JAMZ AWARDS has grown into a monumental platform that does not attracts interest but mobilizes people to celebrate music and its actors.

Every year, an unaccountable number of movies are released and made to circulate within the African and global film markets. While many of these movies go through their market lifespan with little or no attention, a handful come a long with an amazing conspicuousness, leaving an indelible impact in the history books of seventh art industry. Reasons vary – story topic, storyline, cast, directing, impeccability of quality and above all, marketing campaign that accompanies the project. SAVING MBANGO as a film project is all of these, put in one, resulting in what has been described by pundits as a sumptuous package. The relevance of topic (cancer), the meticulousness in the way it is cinematographically presented plus the energy discharged in its promotion, make SAVING MBANGO (produced by Stephanie Tum and directed by Nkanya Nkwai) an excellent example of a successful project. This Saturday, at the movie’s maiden premiere, Apex 1 Radio beams the event into your homes live from the Canal Olympia Douala venue. Join the radio streaming as from 12:30 eastern time, 6:30pm in Mondoni at www.apex1radio.com – TUNEin (search Apex 1 Radio) – Facebook Live – Apex 1 Radio YouTube channel. Take the appointment!
