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 – TUNEin (search Apex 1 Radio) – Facebook Live – Apex 1 Radio YouTube channel. Take the appointment!

Basic biological science teaches us about the various cycles in human life. These stages come along with certain physical as well as psychological changes. Unless a human being has a biological defect, these physical and psychological changes occur.

Needless to recount the story of other provisions, aside the most important activity of breathing in and breathing out – they are aplenty – the food, the education, the employment, the positions, the talents, the skills, the money, the favors and our list is endless. Aren’t these things the purest expression of some love that comes with no condition? You answer is as good as mine.
