BAMILEKE HEGEMONY : Give them Credit- Nde Angelbert

  I have read a few articles running down the Bamilekes, recently. Some Anglophones and some friends seem to be enlisted as new recruits for the social stigma of these people.

Anonymous: #IStandWithAmbe

  Why I stand with Ambe I stand with Ambe because Art doesn’t need to explain itself. My understanding of art is, as far as it doesn’t physically and maliciously hurt someone or a group it should be expressed. Art is a method of expressing oneself; the reasons vary from tragedy to joy, hatred to love, good vs bad etc. I might paint, write, or construct something base on tragedy but someone looking at my paintings or reading my work might find a totally different connection to it.
