It’s the greatest feeling I could ever imagine. I feel this is a dream for Cameroon because this film is representing Cameroon. I just want to say big congratulations to the entire cast and crew. This is for Cameroon! Cameroon is coming up very strongly and you should watch out for movies from here. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
