YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH JOAN NGOMBA…PART TWO.

                                               PART TWO.  YW Thanks Joan for granting YW this interview. Please introduce yourself to the readers. Who’s Joan Ngomba? JN The pleasure is all mine Yenih. My name is Joan Ngomba. I’m a Media Personality in Cameroon. I’m founder of www.dcodedtv.com and producer/host of an upcoming urban entertainment TV show called DCODED TV Show. Both platforms are created to promote and celebrate entertainment and entertainers in/from Cameroon. YW You said media was never in your plans. You studied History and Archaeology at the University of Buea. What were your career plans? JN I wanted to be a historian. I love history and how I use it to tell stories or solve today’s problems. But when I left UB, my dreams changed. I was hit with a tragedy that changed my life plans. I just found myself loving and aspiring to be into media. YW You moved to Nigeria after a very sad event that happened to your family and it was there that you realised you wanted to work in radio. Tell us how that came about? JN I lost my 17-yr-old sister to a fatal car accident in 2007. An incident which left me suicidal and completely confused. I lost the zeal to be alive. So I resigned from my job as a Personal Assistant to Mr. Ewane Ngaaje, DG of JENS Productions Ltd (An Architecture Company in Limbe) and told myself there’s no reason to work when there was no reason to be alive. However, I had some friends...

 PART ONE. I believe our subconscious minds take us where our conscious minds resist to go. She always loved writing so all she wanted to be was a Historian. She was determined to be just that so much so that she ended up studying History and Archaeology at the University of Buea. So what would actually change the course of a determined ‘Historian’ in the making? Here’s the story about the media journey of Joan Ngomba, a TV presenter, Producer, Writer,Blogger and a Fashionista. Just after university, Joan had found a job as a secretary for JENS production when a major tragedy stroke. Joan lost her last sister in a ghastly car accident, she was only 17. Having to deal with such devastating loss, Joan found herself completely lost, not knowing how to pull through with life. She had few friends in Nigeria who encouraged her to come over for a change. With the support from her friends and determination to pull through, Joan set off for Nigeria in 2007. When she got to Lagos, her friends again encouraged her to apply for a post graduate course which she agreed to. She applied waited for the entrance results. Still feeling down, Joan moved to Calabar to be with her cousin. It was while there that she had an ‘Aha!’ moment. There was this particular show on Rhythm FM that caught her attention . It was presented by Wild Child and when it came on, she was gripped instantly. He was so good and there and then Joan realised she wanted a career in radio, just like Wild Child’s.Despite having...

THE TASA GIRLS ARE BACK.

“A good friend knows all your best stories and a best friend has lived them with you.”   We always crave for great friendships filled with laughter, fun, adventures, good and bad. One of the best ways to strengthen a friendship is through adventure. Our busy schedules and different circumstances in life is making it even harder to spend time with friends. How many of us get the opportunity these days to travel, explore and create memories with our friends? The girls of TASA are making us realise that it’s still possible and seamlessly so. I instantly fell in love with the girls of Here & Now-The Adventures of TASA when I tuned in for season 1. With their colourful personalities, Taje, Amiola, Seyitan and Ajifa(TASA) gave me all the right reasons to go on an exploration trip of Africa with my besties. From rolling up their sleeves and hiking up Mount Fako, Cameroon to enjoying silent disco experience in Kenya and then finishing things off with a wedding in the beautiful Vanzibar, the reality show left me craving for more. I’m so happy they’re back for Season 2 and you can catch everything on REDTV’s YoutTube channel. The girls are back with a BANG!!!

COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

Meet the incredible Sinchang Cho. She’s the very talented MUA and beautician of Tooshai Faces. I’m a fan of Sinchang’s work. We had long hours of conversations over the phone in prep for this interview and each conversation left me feeling so empowered and proud. Proud of the woman she has become, the wife, the mother and most importantly the creative Makeup Artist and Beautician the nation and the rest of the world will soon get to know.Though she resisted several times, makeup always found a way to be front and centre in her life. With colleagues always complimenting her makeup, friends asking her to do their makeup and even working as the makeup artist on set of a Cameroonian movie and a music video as well gave Sinchang the boost to finally embrace her calling. Below is the interview we did with Tooshai Faces. Read, get to know her and spread the word.    YW: How and when did you get your start in makeup? TSF: I can’t exactly tell how I started, I happened to always have my makeup right or at least better than most other girls makeup. So I just remember as far back as when I was in Lower sixth in 1998, I started doing my brows, then others wanted me to do their brows, it wasn’t exactly what it is today but it looked good at the time. Then later on in University, I used to help my mom out at her hair Salon, she was a teacher but she owned a Hair salon and when we all got back from school, we’ll...
