It has recently been discovered that Nigerian superstar actor, Ramsey Nouah, posted absolutely nothing about the recently held Cameroon International Film Festival (CAMIFF), an event that he is an ambassador for and fully took part in.
The Cameroon International Film Festival is an annual film festival that brings together movie makers and lovers from Cameroon, other African countries, and beyond, with the aim of celebrating movies made in Cameroon, rewarding hard work, sharing and learning more about movie-making. The festival CEO, Agbor Gilbert Ebot has made it a tradition over the years to bring in guests, especially from Nigeria to be part of the event. This year, it was Nigerian actor, Ramsey Nouah.
However, it would appear most Cameroonian movie lovers are not happy with the way Ramsey acted during and after the festival. To them, he attached very little significance to the festival, which is in fact one of the biggest film festivals in the country.
First, he got several Cameroonians angry when he dressed casually (jeans and slippers) to the festival. To some of these Cameroonians, he was being disrespectful to the festival and their culture as a whole.
And to make things worst, Ramsey Nouah shared nothing about CAMIFF on all his social media pages. Ramsey also said nothing about the award he got at CAMIFF. This has got movie lovers in Cameroon wondering why an ambassador for CAMIFF will not talk about the event. To them, this only means he doesn’t give the event the importance it deserves.
However, Ramsey may have been made an ambassador for CAMIFF and even given an award, but he was not the only actor from Nigeria. Another Nigerian actor, Eyinna Nwigwe was at CAMIFF 2021 as well and unlike Ramsey, he took to Instagram shortly after the event to share several photos as well as his amazing experience at CAMIFF.
“#Camiff2021 was such a value-packed platform, long days & even longer nights all for the collective progress & global positioning of #AfricanCinema by pulling our strengths together as a continent.
Amazing to see how ‘The Same’ yet beautifully ‘Diverse’ we are.
So busy I was, I couldn’t keep up with sharing all the great images from the different social events.
This post is from the cultural night.
The night I was officially given a Cameroonian name #MOLALYONGA which means ‘The Man Of The People’
A name I accepted with my full chest!”
