After having represented Cameroon at various festivals and competitions in Africa (The Spoken Word Project – Angola, Poetry Africa Festival – South Africa, Experimental Scenes – Senegal, Ndjam ignites in Slam – Chad) and in Europe (Spring of Poets -France), Lydol is gaining momentum.
Indeed she has come a long way since the first texts she wrote in her diary. Writing has become a way for her to feel good. By declaiming her texts on stage, she shares her experience with the public but above all she has the feeling of helping others. It addresses everyday themes such as sharing, love and brotherhood.
