Great effort, particularly in a country where we systematically destory our heroes and national icon at the slightest mistake or if we don't share the same political ideology.

Okigbo died while fighting for the secessionist state of Biafra but he is a Nigerian National icon some 40 years later because Nigerians can look beyond his political beliefs to focus on his literary works. let's hope that 40 years from today we will be talking about "BB" and his contribution to Cameroonian literature in the same manner.

Once again congratulations for keeping the flame alive. Looking forward to purchasing my own copy once it becomes available.

Good initiative from Ashutantang and Dibussi to remember the great Obasinjom Warrior, Bate Besong. I hope the Cameroonian public gets to savour it. Waiting to get my copy.

PS: The debates on this forum show an increasing internet-presence of Cameroonians; good news to Cameroonian bloggers, the new "rebel" leaders!

Sofi you'll read more of such comments in future!

BRITISH SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS NEVER DESTROY THEIR HEROES. THE ENMY(FRENCH CAMEROUN) IS THE CULPRIT WHO DESTROY OUR HEROES AND SOW DISCORD AMONGST BRETHREN TO DIVIDE AND RULE

It would be interesting to know why Dibussi and Joyce chose "Their Champaigne Party Will End!" as the title of this masterpiece. You do not seeem to realize what you have done Joyce and Dibussi in bringing to the lamplight once again some of the 'disturbing' phrases of the great literary icon Bate. Thanks so much! These poems remind me of 'simple talkative' whose every word spat out fire and limestone. His death was a great loss to this small marginalized part of the world.
