Stanley Enow; Ben Decca and Others take Awards at the First Edition Of The Cameroon Academy Awards- Sonnah Awards!

The First edition of The Sonnah Awards went down on Sunday the 29th of December at the Hilton Hotel; Yaounde. The hall was jam packed with the movers and shakers of the Cameroonian Entertainment Industry. Among the winners were:

  • Stanley Enow who went home with Two Sonnah Awards for Best Male urban Artist and Most Influential Artist of the year. His acceptance speech was very humbling as he dedicated his awards to the Artists that came before him; his family and to God Almighty. He literally was the Man of the night.
  • Peter Esoka who went home with a Lifetime Achievement Award in Radio and Tv presenting. He expressed his gratitude to the team for recognising his 46 years of active service to the Media industry in Cameroon and he shared his Mantra for Success: THINK; T-Think H-Help I-Inspire N-Necessary and K-Kind. He surely is wisdom personified.
  • Ben Decca went home with a Lifetime Achievement Award in The Music Industry. He was very thankful to the team for giving him The first Award he has received in his Country. He insisted that it felt good to be honoured by your own and he mentioned that he is grateful to have the opportunity to receive the award just at the End of his earthly Journey. I wondered why he mentioned that he was near death….

                       Many Others went home with awards including Achille Brice for Best editor in a movie; Debra Debs for Best female Urban Artist; Museba for Best video in Bom Bom Bom and many others.
                      The Sonnah Awards is a bold effort that has been massively appreciated. Many people; artists inclusive did not take it seriously but this First edition served as a Wake Up call. It was not perfect but there is hope for improvement. I am sure everybody in the Cameroon Entertainment Industry is raising their game to win the award next year!
