Vanity Fair Vs Vain Fraud

Vanity_Fair_pic_IIICameroon is one movie richer. Vanity Fair is at the entrance into the country’s film industry. The 120-minutes movie is shot on locations in the sea-side resort of Limbe and is expected to hit the headlines this week in Cameroon, Africa and the rest of the world.

Directed by Neba Lawrence, Vanity Fair is written by Ngassa Nina, a young newcomer female producer, based in Buea. Talking to TIPTOPSTARS early this week in Yaounde, the producer of the glamour movie explained that Vanity Fair is produced at a time female cultism, scamming and religious insincerity have held society hostage. ‘’These are the themes I’m exploring in the film,’’ she told us. ‘’I’m not only decrying these vices, but have cinematographically crafted it in such a way that the message, urging youths to steer clear from these will sink deep and change attitudes, if not instantly, gradually,’’ she went ahead. Like her movie, the producer is therefore bent movie is therefore bent on combating fraud, call it “scamming”.

Nina also told TIPTOPSTARS she is concerned and bothered about the fast lane which girls have opted to ply even without thinking twice and measuring the consequences of their acts. ‘’The won’t even fear the wrath of God when they go involving themselves in such unholy acts that produce nothing but sad ends for them,’’ she regretted.

Places and thier Fond Names

Situated a few kilometers from Douala is Limbe, Cameroon’s leading tourist destination. Limbe is also known for its petroleum plant, the National Refinery (SONARA). Proud of the presence of this huge petroleum outfit, inhabitants of the sea-side resort have referred to Limbe as OPEC City (OPEC stands for Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries). Some called it Petrol City.

 

Kumba
Kumba-Ktown

In Kumba, headquarters of Meme Division in the South West region of Cameroon, the situation is not different. The town for which its inhabitants can let anything go has had its own affection. It has for decades been called K-Town. In fact, boys from Kumba are known to be so infatuated about the town that at times they simply just say: “I’m going to K this weekend.”

 

bamenda_003
Bamenda - Abakwa

On their part, admirers of the North West regional headquarters, Bamenda think their town is the just darling place. They would therefore call it Abakwa. And when it is time to demonstrate that love, you would hear them say Abakwa boys. A famous football team PWD Bamenda was always referred to as rthe Abakwa Boys, Boys.
