MA GRACE EWANG: AN OUTSTANDING INDIVIDUAL AND A UNIQUE BREED

Introduction

Good people are rare. They are not born, but they are made. Just imagine for a second, a world without good people. It would be bleak. A place without light and hope, without kindness. Without people like Ma Grace Ewang who goes out of her way, every chance she gets to make society a better place for others.

Through the years she has found many ways to be of service to others and become a great inspiration to many. Today we spotlight her as an outstanding individual and a unique breed

Background

Mrs. Ngo Grace Ewang is the Senior Youth and action counselor of EYASU, a woman who simply lives to see a smile on the face of everyone she comes across. She is equally an anthropologist and archeologist.

Ma Grace was born on February 1st, 1970 in Konye, to parents who hail from Bombangi Bataga village in the Ndian Division of the South West Region of Cameroon.

The learned Grace Ewang

Ma Grace did her primary education in Koutaba and completed secondary school in Mbanga and Douala. She then proceeded to study economics at the University of Yaounde 2 in Soa.  She did most of her studies in French, reasons why she’s very flexible in speaking both languages.

 However, with her increased determination to impact the lives of people, she chose the field of arts and culture where she felt her passion and mission to the world would be more realizable. Hence she proceeded to back a master’s degree in Anthropology and Archeology from the University of Yaounde 1.

Professional Career

Madam Grace Ewang has done a lot of research over the years in project management and execution, based on cultural policies, which is a major key to her success. This enables her to empower youths in various domains like events planning, council project management, and music management.

Why choose the ministry of Arts and Culture?

Growing up Ma Grace had the zeal to go after the difficult ventures everyone else would try to avoid. In a country where the most intelligent students either want to become medical doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc., the young ma Grace saw the desire to preserve our cultural heritage which is the very foundation of our identity as Africans.

Hence she ventured into taking further studies in archeology, a field that was sparsely represented in the country.

Growing up in a family of 9 that comprised of enthusiasts in music, poetry, designing, and writing, ma Grace Ewang saw the challenges her siblings faced in trying to realize their dreams. She, therefore, saw the need to be a lawyer/adviser for the future generation to help them realize their passion.

Experience in grace

Madam  Grace Ewang has a career in arts and culture that spans over 20 years. She has served as the Regional Delegate of Arts and Culture for the South West since 2014. She is also the founder of EYASO Association and has supervised and executed over 100 projects in Events Planning and Council Project Management. She has also orientated over 1000 youths in the domain of arts and culture.

As a woman of caliber, She has been the brain behind numerous events like the National Festival of Arts and Culture in Maroua in 2000. Also, she has assisted in the setting up of museums in the South West and North West Regions like the Lefafa Museum, and the Bamugoh Palace Museum.

Her reach extends far beyond borders as she has worked in collaboration with dignitaries from countries like the USA, France, and the UK, exporting our rich culture across boundaries.

Challenges faced

One of her greatest challenges has come in her role as a mediator/ middleman in convincing some parents that their kids can pursue a career in arts and culture side by side with their education. It is rather unfortunate that most parents see arts and entertainment as an avenue that would derail their children from focusing on academics.

Adopting the white man’s lifestyle like dressing, food, and choice of music, is very typical of our youths and Ma grace has tried to make them see the “ambiance” in the cultural preservation of African traditions but without recognizable success.

 Since the advents of the Anglophone Crisis Ma Grace Ewang has faced a problem of mobility as certain areas of the region and people cannot be accessed easily.

MA GRACE EWANG: AN OUTSTANDING INDIVIDUAL AND A UNIQUE BREED

Way Forward

The adage ‘if you don’t practice you will forget’ has been Mrs. Ewang’s watch ward as she continues to touch the lives of the younger generation trying to make them realize the wealth of preserving our cultural and traditional heritage.  Of course, as a government official, Ma Grace could never predict the future and has recently been transferred out of the South West. She has accomplished much but still feels there is a lot to be done.

Through her EYASU Association, ma Grace will continue to help youths in project writing and management.

Spotlight---Who-is-this-singing-Pope---Blackstyle-Media

Moving down the streets of Bonaberi, Douala on one sunny afternoon in the heart of the rainy season I came across this pool of crowd. Being a curious Cameroonian I went closer to find out the ‘raison d’etre’ of this gathering.

I was startled at the sight of seeing what pulled this mass of people. In the middle of this circus was this short guy who literally stood taller than everyone around him. 

With his mic in hand, this dude displayed some amazing dance steps with so much energy that left me with no option than request to know more amazing artist.

Spotlight---Who-is-this-singing-Pope---Blackstyle-Media-

Pope Switzeal born Mbela Fayies is an Afro rapper of bakweri descent, raised in the streets of Buea and presently resides in Bonaberi, Douala which remains his artistic base.

Pope Fayies is unique for using a physical impediment to his advantage. On numerous occasions in his song will you hear him make mention his height and how comfortable and blessed he feels about his physique.

He is the definition of ‘confidence’ from a personal standpoint and a reference that would give hope to the hopeless in society.

Pope Swizteal has been around the 237-musical scenario since 2010 but it was until 2018 that he engaged in professional music. He previously served as a dancer, MC, and event organizer.

the artist eventually released a couple of singles in the years that followed. some of these tracks include;

Momo Me Remix  Ft July Jey, Lady Q, Don Ray and Njie Money

Bad Pass You Ft Sparx Da Virus,

Bebe ou,  

No Breakup Ft King Ray,

E Must To Show Ft El Chris,

Mboloye Ft Best Boy, and Kikoh.

The artist’s hard work eventually paid off in early 2022 with his imminent signing by BGC Melody,  an international music Record Lebel based in the United States.

Pope Sweatzeal this July released the visuals of his highly acclaimed single ‘On Est La’ featuring the legendary Big G Baba, which is part of his soon-to-be-released album.

Asu Chalz is an award-winning afro-pop/dance hall sensation who hails from the northwest and is based in Douala, the economic capital city of Cameroon. 

The artist whose real name is  Asukwa Charles was in Bafmeng around the mid-’90s just around the era when Afropop was undergoing a revolution and gaining quick ground on the world stage.

Maybe that natural factor contributed to molding this artistic powerhouse.

Asu Chalz demonstrated his call as a future musician at a very tender age of 5 as he was fond of dancing and impersonating some of the popular artists of the time the likes of Puff Daddy, MC Hammer, and Micheal Jackson.

Having not been born into a music-loving family the latter years would see Asu Chalz’s drive for music slow down as he pursued formal education and eventually backed a degree in electrical engineering as well as acquired other skills in Editing and graphic designing.

The artist on one of his early music exploits came across producer Marc Eff who reshaped his vision and music orientation for the better.

Asu Chalz officially made his arrival in the Cameroon music industry in 2017 with the release of his smash single ‘Punanni’which was produced by Marc Eff and Directed by Mr. Tim for Mr. Tim’s Film Networks. 

The highly acclaimed Punanni paved a way for later musical projects like ‘Beng Beng ‘  as well as ‘Beng Beng’ remix featuring Kikoh and Makon.

The artist is presently working on a 12-track ep dubbed ‘Transit’ which is expected to be released later this year. 

Asu Chalz is hugely admired for his energy on stage and stylish dressing and haircut.

Spotlight---Asu-Chalz---Blackstyle-Media

Asu Chalz has received gratification for his musical exploits winning the prestigious Beri Arts Awards under the category of Most Promising Artist in 2019.

He became a brand ambassador for  Natural juice production  firm “PEPS” in 2021

The music journey has however not been a bed of roses for our artist. He faces the common problem of finance just as almost every other independent upcoming artist in Cameroon and Africa in general.

He is thereby open to bookings, and collaboration with other artists, record labels, and music stakeholders, that will help take his art to the next level.
