Chutio Kouamo Arnaud is CEO of Camraise Academy. He rejoices over the success of the event despite the numerous challenges recorded.

“First of all I want to thank God for strength. Towards the preparations for CAMACA, we had a lot of disappointments that even as a team at one point wanted to stop. Talking about difficulties in finance, we do not have any sponsor. What we have here is from an individual pucket. The resources are not there to actually do a grand award but I think the motivations were more than these difficulties”.

He adds that “Our wish is those who have received an award should not go and sleep on it. It should act as a motivation because their fans will be expecting a lot from them. They should work hard and prove that the juries and popular votes didn’t go out for nothing”.

Amongst the many who bagged home an award is Anyam Yvette, celebrated as best art promoter In Bamenda.
