OK people..it is events like this, organized by associations of this calibre that make me very proud of my ROOTS. I think I have the right to say that I am "Nso to the Bone"...
I can answer the question "What/Where is your compound?"....lololol..(Sorry, inside joke)...My compounds are:Maternal - "Mbonyar, Ntsenkar, Mbikiyy", Paternal - " Kah, Ngairin, Ntseng"..I know my lamnso spelling is terrible...but i applaud my effort..lol! My grandfather settled in "Ndzengvev"......OK "gvev" means "chicken"...so go figure...The youth section of NGVEVDA (Development Association) is "Won Ngvev",translation "chicks".......

On a more serious note, this is the EVENT you want to attend!!It will be a display of Culture and leadership in community & sustainable development.

"....In 2008-2009, through our partnership with Kumbo Development and Orientation Centre (KUDOC), we provided school supplies to 1,622 elementary school children in six schools in three
subdivisions of Bui Division, namely: Jakiri, Nkum and Kumbo.
Nine schools have been identified in Nkum, Oku, Mbiame, Kumbo and Jakiri subdivisions to receive school supplies. Cost is about$3 per kid. Goal-3378 elementary school children"

BFU-USA needs your support to achieve this very noble initiative and much more!!

"Oh Africa...wey oh wey oh ahh ahh Oh Africa"....I love "Oh Africa", Pepsi's World Cup Theme Song by Akon & Keri Hilson.

The World Cup has finally come to AFRICA...I am soo proud to be African. I have watched documentaries over the last few weeks which show the preparedness,excitement & pride with which South Africa and the rest of Africa welcome the world to our darling continent!!This our opportunity to show the world our RICH & DIVERSE culture!
There was a interesting segment today, June 10th 2010 on the "History of the World Cup" of the 6 African Countries of this year's edition on the "Good Morning Africa" Show (on Africa Magic)

South Africa
Ivory Coast

I learnt one very interesting fact: My darling country, Cameroon was the first African country to participate in the FIFA World Cup in 1982!

Check out the FIFA Website http://www.fifa.com/

To all those in SA, this an opportunity of a lifetime....have loads of fun and support our teams!!!Some of us will just have to watch the events unfold on TV!

Which African Team do you think can win this year's World Cup??? I am not even going to take a guess.
