IT’S JUST POETIC is a musical stage play written by Akumbu L Jones.
A widower’s struggle to bring up his two very strong willed daughters amidst a political climate of citizens searching for their identity.
Standing up to their father is also a reflection of the civilians seeking to be heard, it is their right to love and be loved,it is upon them to standup against appearances.
And show the courage it’s takes to live with their reality!

This is a play we hope to revamp theatre play production in our region.

La Liberte Arts Group was instrumental in bringing poetry to the limelight according to the then Arterial network’s president Mr Chembifon Muna( the largest arts platform in Africa) and today we hear of spoken word poetry in every event around town,it is the same energy and vision we have for theatre revamping.

It stars the most notable name in theatre and film in the North west region, this no other than the multi award winning Mr Vugar Samson aka Grandpa., aka knack your kanda,The one take actor and multiple award winning, Ngwa Bernard, introducing the medical student Kathy Bessem (4 year) who is absolutely a gifted one though in the medical field, the comic actor Shurker Blaq and many more.
We hope to use the play to start the decolonization process of the arts.

This will be on 19 of December at HILLPARK HOTEL.

What are the objectives? 🔴

1)Arts promotion
Theatre was dying and we think it needs to be rekindled, especially in the Northwest and Cameroon as a whole.

2)Acting on stage has strong benefits for actors even if they transition to screen actors.

3) Helping us to reevaluate our entertainment ecosystem. There is so much disjoint in the entertainment ecosystem.

4) Introduce new faces to the acting sector. Try to familiarize actors with other greats. Take for instance Marlon Brando( variously called) best actor of the last century, was also a great stage actor. Denzel Washington is also a great stage actor, even in Nigeria, Olu Jacobs is also a great stage actor. This is in effect to say actors can diversify their platforms.

5) Finally, the main theme is appearance versus reality, many people stick to what they see and not what they know for a fact.

6) It’s also nuanced in our political struggle as with the two main characters( two sisters) who stood up against their father. ( a widower). His conservative ideas clash with that of the strong-willed progressive daughters’.

•It starts Vugar Samson Vibimi aka Grandpa
•Introducing Benny Clancy – Wolf ( absolutely gifted rapper and singer).
•@Cathrine Bessem(5-year medical student) a joy to watch on stage. who has ever acted before just like Benny Clancy and then Shucker blaq

There is a lady( of late). Mambo, was a pioneer cultural entrepreneur in Bamenda, her drive and belief in Bamenda have been transmitted to us. She was the earliest person to commission me to write the play way back in 2014. But, the play is as relevant as 2021.

Finally, as a fellow of theatre young people of ASSITEJ( the lone from central Africa). ASSITEJ is a global platform that selects promising talents and gives them scholarship and residency programs to develop and grow. I was given mine in South Africa.
Mr. Vugar Samson the main actor in this play is the Vice President of ASSITEJ( even though it is just named). But, teaming with him. I, a fellow and He is a Vice President, we can change the paradigm.

This will be on 19 of December at HILLPARK HOTEL.

They will be an after party, a surprise star..
tickets are out now, keep the date and be blessed as you wait to watch something phenomenal!
