SkiNs is a Photography Installation art project that aims to address the issue of “different” in today's society.
Segregation, and its various degrees of separation, seeing ourselves as ‘different’ or better than the other/next – all fosters the growth of the narrow gap that once bound us together – we quickly forget we are no different from those whom we judge.

"We are all Brothers under the Skin, and I, for one would be willing to skin humanity to prove it." Like Ayn Rand, I want to skin humanity in order to bridge the gap that so often divides us; White, Black, Asian, Hispanic, Old, Young, Woman, Man etc. Create a realm within which we can see past our differences.

Catch the exhibition at this venue, day and time:
East Gallery
214 Brick Lane
London, E1 6SA
Tuesday 1st June 2010
From 6 – 10 p.m.

This project is brought to you by:

Today, May 20th is a national day in Cameroon and this will be marked too around the Cameroonian communities in the world. What makes this day super special is that we are also celebrating our 50th Independence from our colonial masters - France and England.

During this festive period a lot of people keep asking what the celebration is all about. According to them the country is still in deep economic crises, there are no jobs for the many qualified students out there, the system is still extremely corrupt from the government downwards and many only see the solution to be a change in government.

Okay yes, this may be the current situation that Cameroon finds itself in after many years of bad governance. Like most African countries, we are no exception but the key issue is that we are known to be a nation of "blamers" and "complainers". If we exerted the same amount of energy we put in ripping things apart into putting things together, we could actually move one step up in changing the face of our nation forever. If we also decided to join hands together, Francophone / Anglophone, Bayangi / Banso, Mbororo / Bamileke, Muslim / Christian - and put aside our differences then Cameroon will be able to slowly move forward.

The simple message DC is trying to share is that we all have to fight the current system no matter how small our actions may be, as they say every little helps. It is afterall our nation and though many of us live abroad or many are seeking to leave to go abroad, our final resting place is Cameroon. That is where we belong, it is our home.

Nevertheless, Dulce Camer is very optimistic that there will be significant changes in our beloved nation in the coming years. With the current trend seen around most African countries being the influx of their younger generation back into the country from abroad, change is bound to occur. Brain drain now means brain gain with a mentality that sees solutions and opportunities in problems rather than a setback or an obstacle. A mentality that is also very creative and innovative that aims to bring back Western experiences to fuse them with traditional resources. A mentality which is driven by self belief, assertion and a go getting spirit. A mentality that understands the principle of networking and making use of their contacts (the man know man concept is worldwide). A mentality that is not afraid of failure because they know if they don't try they will never know their capabilities. A mentality that follows their passion and puts their talents to greater use.

We are this young generation and let us stand up and do all we can do to make our nations - Africa a better place for us and our children. We sure have the power and know how to achieve this. If in doubt, adopt the Obama message "YES WE CAN"!

Dulce Camer would like to take this opportunity to salute these young Cameroonians around the world doing so much to keep the Cameroonian machine rolling, Alex Quest, Soraya Sone, Isabel Bezeng, Ngum Ngafor, Cynthia Anduhtabe, Shiri Achu Morcho, Anrette Ngafor, Kibonen Nfi, Kelen Ndzelen, Sophy Aiida, Liz Oton, Dennis Angafor, Valery Chifor, Mr Daddy Black, Sylvia Mbuta, Frances Ekiko, Brice Bertin Nketcha, Arlette Ngo Badjeck, George Eko, Paola Ndengue, Menoosha Susungi, Olivia Mukam, Denzyl, Wax, Steveslil, Mambe Nanje, Sama Ndango, Stephanie Mouapie, Maryanne Mokoko, Amabel Niba, Dinene Divine, Charlotte Mbatsogo, Rodrigue Tchatcho, Martial Tapolo, David Nso, Suzan Agbor, Ashu Tabetando, Debra Bilikha, Kilian Ateh...add your name to the list if you are doing something great for Cameroon!

So what are we celebrating? We are celebrating you and me and the bright future that lies ahead for Cameroon.
Let the celebrations begin!!

Over 20 years ago in Italy, Cameroon made history by being the first ever African team to reach the quarter finals of the World Cup. The highlight of this event was Roger Milla who, apparently the oldest player in that year's World Cup changed the face of goal celebration for ever by dancing each time he scored a goal. That simple dance snowballed into an incontrollable madness where fans and players alike just let go.
Roger Milla initiated a sense of freedom in celebration and he definitely showed a way to live!
Check out his collaboration with Coca Cola below.
Allez les Lions! Allez les Lions!

DC can't wait for the World Cup! We hope more history will be made.

With only under a month to go before the 2010 World Cup premiers in the African continent, a lot of preparation has been going on behind the scenes to mark this eventful occasion and music is taking centre stage.
We reported a few weeks ago that Shakira was chosen to sing the official song which incorporated exerpts from the Zangalewa song by the Zangalewa group from Cameroon.

Here is the official video

For some of you who were wondering if the group's consent was sought before this track was made, check out their press conference by clicking here to find out. Also check out other videos containing this track. How popular is this great song of the 80's??

Soul Seduction, a new club venture in Douala by Love Jones Entertainment aims to seduce its stylish clientele by providing soul, jazz music in a chic and luscious upscale setting.

A concept borne in London, DC speaks to Jean-Yves Mbome, the leader of the team.

DC: What inspired you to venture into events management in Cameroon?
J-YM: Events management is a venture that I started pursuing about a couple of years ago in London. The main purpose of my events is to provide quality, stylish and exclusive parties for young professionals as well as others. After investigating the lifestyle of young Cameroonian workers in Cameroon, I noticed that besides clubbing and eating out there wasn't much else to do. Also, I saw that most of the companies needed some live communication to expose their products and image. So I found out that it could be a great opportunity for me to establish my trade mark here in Cameroon.

DC: How easy or difficult was it to convince the owner of your venue to lease it to you?
J-YM: It was very easy to deal with the owner of the Marrakech restaurant, which is a year old Moroccan restaurant located in the heart of the Douala residential area. They had previously organised private parties and they were willing to give a go to this new and original type of concept. We had some meetings and we came to a fair agreement and the deal was done.

DC: How did you get people to turn up? What promotional strategies did you undertake?
J-YM: I am not supposed to reveal my strategies but it has worked very well so far. People turn up to an event for many reasons and I just made sure that every single person understood the concept and got familiar with it before the event and this was seen in the way we designed the flyers, the message we were giving out as well as the music policy. All that added to the image I had of the event.

DC: What makes your event unique?
J-YM: My event is tailormade to the product launches or the profile of the clients targeted. We will always try to bring something different at each and every edition. The focus is on the attention to detail and creating the wow factor to make it a sensational and well organised event.

DC: What should we be expecting from your events?
J-YM: The style and quality of the music will be carefully selected, the interior design will be fabulous, the atmosphere will be very nice and friendly, the customer service of our friendly team will be second to none and most of all the crowd will be beautiful.

DC: When is the next one?
J-YM: We are still working on it, probably sometime in June.

DC: What was your overall opinion of this first event?
J-YM: I am very proud of the hard work that my team and I put on the first edition of “Soul Seduction». The feedback from our clients was more than what we expected. Everyone had a fantastic time.

Some pictures from the event below!

Please join in and help us find Maforsceneh Ndifonka (usually called 'Sceneh'). She is fair in complexion, about 1.6m tall and of average build. She has a small inverted V-gap on her two front teeth.

She was wearing a green polo jersey, black pants, and blue high-heeled sandals when she left. She probably has no money on her.

She is 26 years old. She has a mental condition that she controls with medication, but with no access to her medication she will relapse. So she is very vulnerable.

She normally lives in Germiston with her uncle, who is also the relative of our own very soul brotha NDE "WAX" NDIFONKA. She traveled to Pretoria last Friday to visit an aunt in Sunnyside. She left the aunt that afternoon saying she was going to Sandton and, since then, she has not been seen. She is not familiar with the area and has no friends in South Africa.

Please anyone with information about Sceneh - or anyone willing to help with the investigation or with prayers - contact NDE "WAX" NDIFONKA at (+27) 082 667 2776; or the cousin Genesis at (+27) 082 642 2844; or Belle at (+27) 0846644115. You can also contact the Sunnyuside Police Station: (+27) 012 422 3600. The case number is 58/05/2010.

Help, help, help!!

There is a new womenswear brand in town and it is Deenola. A brand created by two friends Deena Dee from the Comores Island and Olafemi Bella from Cameroon.

The concept of their brand is about going back to the roots whilst embracing the present through the fusion of interesting African fabrics and contemporary silhouettes.

Deenola's philosophy is about creating a line that would be effortlessly elegant but at the same time very comfortable to wear.

Their first collection is called "Versatile" because of the different moods in all the pieces of the collection and the designs which were made to cater for all women of all sizes.

Fresh from debuting at the Dublin African Fashion Weekend last month in Dublin, they also gave Londoners a taste of their fashion style by showcasing at the Ethnik Fashion Show which took place on Friday at the African Centre in Convent Garden.

Check out some pics below.

The Deenola brand speaks comfort, style and versatility.
