He has only one regret; that he never paid attention to maths. His prowess in storytelling, on the other hand, is unmistakable. Florian Ngimbis is unapologetic, vociferous, and hilarious. This is by far the funniest, and most entertaining conversation we have in this season.
This episode is in French. You see, Cameroon is a bilingual country, and so are we at Bakwa. The joie de vivre was palpable in the laugh-filled banter.
Florian is one of the pioneers when it comes to the Cameroonian blogosphere. He paints a picture of the ‘accident’ that got him writing online, how travelling to France affected his views on book publishing, the changing landscape of Cameroon’s digital activism ecosystem, and what he thinks is necessary for the online impact to be felt offline. He pulls no punches when talking about his failed attempts at traditional digital advertising with local businesses, and his take on most Cameroonian bloggers.
We had a lot of fun recording this episode.
Florian continues to write strongly-worded social commentary on his widely read blog: www.kamerkongossa.cm. You can find him on twitter as well.
