The evening show of closing events of the fortieth anniversary of the Yaounde Conference Centre was held this Friday, November 4, 2022, in an atmosphere of jubilation.

Total euphoria. The inaugural hall of the Conference Centre vibrates to the rhythm of applause, cries of approval, and dance steps that match the musical rhythms of the land. This is on the occasion of the evening show closing events of the celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the Conference Centre this Friday, November 04, 2022.

The top management of the Conference Centre, composed of the PCA, Aminatou Ahidjo, the GM Christophe Mien Zok and the deputy GM Louise Musonge, received a host of personalities. Including members of the government, led by the Minister of Communication, Rene Emmanuel Sadi, representative of the President of the Republic, H.E Paul Biya, members of the diplomatic corps and other distinguished guests.

Highlights of this evening’s show, the performance of the group “the Baka”, whose stage performance imposes a burst of encouragement in banknotes. The show teleports to the Littoral, in Makossa thanks to Manuélo. His orchestra and he kept the public entertained for almost half an hour. But, the end is done by the cult title of 2020, “Azombo”, which Ewondo translated means “Patience”.

An event of this magnitude without KeGUEGUE international would not be one. The artist comedian through his sketch tells the story of the Conference Centre, which he described as a place of “great decisions”. As an illustration, the artist cites the tripartite of the 90s and the Major National Dialogue of 2019.

KeGueGue joined the artist Zuella. The storyteller equipped with his “Mvet”, traditional guitar, pays tribute to President Paul Biya through the title “Thank you to the Renewal”.

There are also thanks. Notably to the event’s partners, such as Afriland First Bank, a major partner. Or towards the former DGA, Eko Ngomba Catherine, who receives a special award for her loyal services. The ceremony ends with the cutting of the cake and fireworks outside the building.
