DSC02882Yet another kudos for young Cameroonian film makers and musicians! Some 20 of them have been recognised and rewarded by Yaounde-based Production Company, ACE Productions Incorporated and the Ministry of Culture. The laureates of ACE Awards 2008 grabbed their trophies recently in Yaounde during an all-stars night. They came from all the four corners of Cameroon. Speaking at the event, ACE CEO, Henry Claude Ndengue, himself a talented actor congratulated the laureates for a job well done." The jury was attracted to the works that won prices without any sentiments," he said. And added: "So, those who worn prices were deserving laurels." Ndengue however urged the lucky actors and musicians not to lie on their laurels but work harder and win more prizes. He announced that ACE Awards has been retained as a second film festival to be organised under the auspices of the Minister of Culture, after Ecrans Noirs. Perhaps the greatest attraction of the awards night was the glamour that characterised the event. Prominent actors and musicians could be spotted in very gorgeous attires. While Muma Pascal (Bob) smiled behind spectacles and a cream jacket, Kumba-based Maru Gatscaya puffed in some well-cut three-piece yellow suit. Eddy Goffie, smiling all along clad himself in some dark military-like jacket, crowded by golden buttons. Mamfe-based Tanyisong Candylaurice flew in some golden blue party gown. Hip-Hop rising star, King Aluan, accompanied by his personal designer, displayed in brown King A brand shirt. His wrist carried a golden watch specially designed for the artiste. From Bamenda, renowned producer/director, Musing Derick smiled in some golden black shirt and a neatly fixed tie. The master of ceremony, Kome Epule spoke fluently and captivatingly from French "debader". Then the talented singers took turns in performing-King Aluan, Dog Star and General Kingala. The trophies were handed out, accompanied by thunderous applause each time a winner was pronounced. A sumptuous gala with which to digest the event followed thereafter. ACE Awards 2009 come up in July 2010.
