First ever Cameroon Academy Awards (SONNAH Award)

Cameroon made history on the 29th of December 2013 at the Hilton hotel, by hosting its first ever Cameroon Academy Awards, prestigiously called, the SONNAH awards . Attended by many Cameroonian celebrities and having English Cameroon fully represented, the ceremony celebrated Cameroon’s talents and cultural diversity in about 23 categories, including other special awards such as lifetime achievement awards.

Exceeding all expectations, this was an award event to reckon with, from the red carpet moments to the awards show itself, not to forget this was live on Cameroon’s national television CRTV .

So who went home with arms full of awards and the most smile on the face? The new artist Stanley Enow with his new hit single “hein pere” was well acknowledged by the Cameroon entertainment industry; sweeping the board with two awards: one for best urban artist and the other for artist with the most impact. Also scoring the most awards was the movie Ninah’s dowry: best actress, best director, and best film categories all came from it.
Cameroon did not forget Africa as a whole, as the best African actor award went to the Ghanaian  most popular and achieved father of three: Van Vicker.

A big thumbs-up to Akim Macauley; CEO of the SONNAH awards for this amazing initiative and to the SONNAH team in general. From now on, Cameroon talents have a platform and benchmark on which to compete and set their targets for. It is now not only a vision, but a mission to set higher goals for the Cameroon Entertainment Industry; both in the diaspora and domestically. More pictures and winners list  after the cut….
