Alenne’s ambitions

alean.jpgI was fond of criticising other actors until I was reminded that I needed to prove that I could do better. That was when a bell rang in my head.” Alenne Menget, hope-rising Cameroonian actor used this anecdote to explain why he has continuously sharpened his skills in home video. The talented oral artist (also a singer and comedian) will be remembered more for his role as the worldly pastor in Sacrament, a 2005 Cameroon-Nigeria co-production that hit the movie market. “It was the first movie I was featuring in, but that did not deter my performance,” says the young actor who is also a talented journalist.

Perhaps, Alenne’s contact with Nollywood stars; Nkem Owoh (Ukwa), John Okafor (Mr Ibu) Sam Loko,  and Emmanuel Franz has been quite inspirational. Individually, these renowned actors have had to commend his skill in the art. Such skills include eloquence, script mastery, and the ability to mimic.

The 1.76m-tall actor from the North West Province, at one time fondly called Pa Dan, plans to produce a comedy show that will condemn contemporary societal ills. That will however not stop him from composing sound tracks for movies and reviewing plays written by his retired father who is also an actor.
