press release

Cape Town, 21 May, 2012 — Cameroon will come alive on the southern tip of Africa this Friday 25th May, as the Land of Promist Project presents its Cameroon Africa Day Celebration event, at the Protea Hotel Victoria Junction, Green Point Cape Town.

The event which aims to raise funds, entertain and educate is an initiative that was started and funded by organiser Solomon Atah Gaye, an up and coming Cameroonian film director and producer.

Says Atah, "this event is a celebration of everything Cameroonian, with live performances, cultural dances and guest speakers. We really want to encourage the Cameroonian community and more especially the South African community to come out in numbers and witness what our country has to offer.

Some of us have lived in South Africa for more than ten years and while we are here, we appreciate the opportunity to showcase our culture and also to bring Africa's people together for a fun filled evening of song, interaction and dance."

The event will boast 12 guest artists from Cameroon, DRC, Nigeria and South Africa. Three comedians, two poets, art exhibitions, cultural dancing, opera singers Pisto Msongelwa and Sandile Kamle (from Ucarmen eKhayelitsha), guest speaker Professor Charles Wisonge (from the faculty of Health Sciences at UCT) and guest dance artist George Arrey (semi-finalist 2010 South Africa's Got Talent) will be some of the spectacular highlights of the evening.

The event starts at 17h00 sharp and is free to the public. For more information: Facebook Cameroon Land Of Promise or Twitter @SolomonAtah.
