Rene Etta is not new in the film industry. He is one of the finest cinematographers on the continent and has worked as Director of Photography in some of Africa’s most successful film projects. Etta shot to the limelight years ago through brilliant TV commercials he and crews he worked with, made. Before THE FISHERMAN’S DAIRY and THERAPY, two of his recent works, streaming on NETFLIX, the award-winning cinematographer had accompanied scores of film projects through which some of Cameroon’s bests actors were elevated. Under the banner of GOHFA STUDIOS and with brain boxes such as Anurin Nwenembom, Itambi Delphine, Achille Brice, etc, Rene contributed enormously to building an Indie film culture that inspired many young people in the seventh art. Yet, the Buea-based dexterous camera operator prefers to let only his works tell his story. Dust was yet to settle on his recent NETFLIX achievements and prizes won from THE FISHERMAN’S DAIRY when another international assignment came calling on the filmmaker of great repute. Last week, therefore, it was announced Etta had been picked as the Director of Photography, D.O.P for STATE OF MALAMBA, an anticipated pan-African film production that will cast actors drawn from across the continent, including prominent ones such as Ramsey Nouah, John Dumelo, Van Vicker, Nadia Buari and Kenya’s Sarah Hassan. Helmed by Zimbabwean Marc T. Mandisoul,  STATE OF MALAMBA will be filmed in Johannesburg, South Africa.

ETTAAhead of the continental assignment, Rene Etta who is also the producer of CHARIOT OF THE GODS (Best Cameroonian Film - CAMIFF 2021), speaks to Apex 1 Radio. What these recent accomplishments mean to his career, how he got picked for MALAMBA and more, will constitute our conversation with the indefatigable filmmaker. Etta will be one of our special guests on AFRICAN FIESTA this Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 9:30am EST (2:30pm gmt+1).

Choripan Argentine Grill, Fork in Nigeria introducing new aroma
It is generally considered to be a basic human need for physical survival, but food goes beyond that. It is an important cultural asset to every people across the world. The interesting thin about food is that it comes in varieties – and so, you travel across the world, you come across different types of food with different tastes - different colors – different species and you name it.

For one thing, food distinguishes a people from others. Even when two countries of two peoples may eat the same thing, there is always something that comes in to differentiate – either the way the food is prepared or the way it is eaten. A good example is rice. Rice may be a staple food, but they way it is prepared in Argentina would be different from the way rice is prepared in Nigeria. The way rice is made in Nigeria, is different from the way it is made in Ghana.

A people are so attached to its food to the extent where even thousands of miles away from home, they would always make sure they get hold of their food.

Argentines and Nigerians in the United States are living up to that and savoring their food, thanks to restaurants run by their people. Two of such restaurants are the Chopiran Argentine Grill and the Fork in Nigeria, respectively.

The common thing about Fork in Nigeria & Choripan Argentine Grill is that both outfits are restaurants. They differ in that while the former is a food truck, the latter is harbored in a building. Both restaurants serve food but while the one is African, the other is Argentine. The one thing both restaurants help us learn is cultural diversity which is one of America’s biggest assets.

THIS WEEK VIA THE AFRICAN LENS

ONE: From 2012 when it was completed and started being submitted to film festivals, till around 2015 when news about it faded out, NINA’S DOWRY harvested over 32 awards internationally. It was the single Cameroonian movie at the time that flexed muscles with foreign productions and easily rose above them. NINA’S DOWRY swept awards across several categories until the public lost count of the prizes at some point. Amongst the awards the movie, produced by Victor Viyouh won, were a good number of them, going to the lead actress Mbufung Seikeh. Seikeh, then a film scholar, had neither starred nor featured in many movies as such, but NINA’S DOWRY alone propelled her to the summit at festivals. The actress who is more tilted towards film education does not hit the screens so often and might not have been so conspicuous in the news, but Seikeh has a story, though not sufficiently told, but rich in content. We went fishing for her after years of silence and this Saturday, the lead actress in NINA’S DOWRY returns to public space. Mbufung Seikeh will be one of our special guests on African Fiesta this Saturday.
TWO: Adele Clarice is back with the voice, melody and message. She presents her latest single, JEALOUS and explains how she worked on this project to produce such a great result.
THREE: Stanlion Clothing’s founder and CEO is back on radio, this time to unravel the mystery of the relationship between fashion and the red carpet. Depending on his long years of fashion designing experience, Stanley Akisah accesses behaviors we observe on African red carpets and helps us in charting the way forward in this very sensitive aspect of entertainment.
FOUR: Gospel music artist, Tehilla Beltha fulfils her 2021 Spring music release by bringing forth FOR MY MATTER. She presents the new track plus explains what it entailed to complete the project.
FIVE: The African film industry becomes one movie richer when RECOMPENSE finally sees the light of day, thanks to Florence Onuma. The Nigerian movie producer and actress tells us about this new movie, awaiting with much anxiety and excitement, including how she was able to work this out during the pandemic.
These Africans and perhaps more will be our guests on the 177th edition of AFRICAN FIESTA this Saturday at 9;30am EST (2:30pm gmt+1)

Claudia Fonguh and performing arts have a longstanding relationship which continues to solidify by the day. Her zeal to explore further into the seventh art flew her to the world's second biggest film industry, Nollywood where she has performing for a couple of years now. As the Cameroonian actress tells us about her Nollywood exploits this week on AFRICAN FIESTA, we also find out how Yvonne Rosevell became part of the Capees Comedy World crew.The Buea-based actress/comedian will be speaking at a time dust is yet to settle on the 5th anniversary celebration of F&F Fashion House. Its founder and CEO, Njikta Linda who doubles as entrepreneur says she still has more in store for lovers of fashion, just like Aminata Vandy who is poised on having Africans from English-speaking countries master and speak the French language. Her Learning French With Vandi YouTube project will be the topic of our conversation on the show. On her part, Karine Atem provides lessons from the Word through her track, THE SECRET PLACE. The gospel music artist tells us more about her latest single. These five young African women contributing to the growth of the continent in their respective ways, are our guest on the 176th edition of AFRICAN FIESTA this Saturday.
