Having a baby is one of the most important events for a family. According to Cedars Sinai, mothers to be can take comfort in the knowledge that they will receive the highest level of care. Every mother and baby is special to them and the new mothers give birth in beautifully decorated private labour-delivery-recovery rooms.

These rooms furnished in soft colours, recessed lighting and coordinated bedding and drapery provide the mother to be with a sense of home. The special touches, including full-sized tubs for relaxation during labour and comfortable birthing beds also add to the mother’s comfort and all these come at a price of between USD 2,800 to USD 4,000 a night. Yes you read that right!!

Nathalie Koah had her baby around the 12th of October and left the hospital around the 17th of October (according to her posts), for a 5 five night’s stay at this facility brings her maternity room bill only to a cost of between USD 14,000 to USD 20,000.

MMPR FOCUS: 6 FACTS ABOUT MYRA MAIMOH THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW NOW…

Always smiley and cheerful Myra Maimoh grew up within a big, Christian family in Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon with her mother being her greatest musical influence.

Influenced by her mother’s discs of Skeeter Davies, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, African blues and throughout the spectrum from country music, traditional African music to jazz and pop, Myra started singing and dancing, while still in preschool at the age of 3. She wrote her first set of songs and stories at the age of 13 and since then Myra’s music journey has grown from strength to strength.

On Saturday August 13th Myra is scheduled to release her follow up album entitled UNIQ and she just cannot wait for you to take a listen. So while we wait the for the release date to come, here are 6 facts you definitely should know about her!

Myra1(3)

  1. Myra is known to be kind of goofy. She grew up in a house with a whole lot of laughter even during trying times when there was really no reasons to laugh or goof about. In her family, they don’t seem to take themselves too seriously although devoted to hard work. When it’s time to be serious, they do that really well and the rest of the time they are full of goofiness which as Myra states “I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.”Oh well, a goofy artist is not bad at all is it?!!
  2. Always very smiley but you will be shocked to find out that Myra is known to be shy & reserved! Oh yes! However, when she is performing on stage all timidity and shyness fly out of the window! As a result, people who don’t know her very well usually either think she’s arrogant or too shy when they meet me for the first time. But after watching her on stage or knowing her more, they almost always ask this question – why did I ever think you were a quiet girl? Her response: beats me! [Haa haaa!!]
  3. Myra has 2 Masters degrees and she is an advocate for education especially for the girl child. Here is her story: at a point in her life, she wasn’t even sure she was ever going to be able to get even a Bachelors degree. Her family was going through some really turbulent times and they couldn’t quite afford a lot. The farther the dream was for her to go as far as she could with her education, the more resolved she was to get the best education. God opened door after door and before she knew it, she had not only a Bachelors degree from a great business school in Germany but also a Masters degree in International Management and another in International Business from another good university in the USA. “I know there are a lot of young girls back at home in Cameroon who probably won’t complete their studies and thus miss their chances to showcase their talent just because there is no one to help. Reason why I am a big advocate for educating the poor and hopeless because that was me at some point in my life.
  4. Myra loves food believe it or not – she loves trying out recipes, cooking and hosting. Her house is almost always full. She loves cooking all sorts of foods and usually has cooking competitions with her spouse. If it’s healthy, she will try it!
  5. Myra is an outdoor lover. If she could spend the whole day outside, that would make her ultimate day. She does like to wind down at home but the most fulfilling days for her is full days out with family and it mustn’t be full of adventurous things, she is happy with just walking for as long as she can.
  6. In case you only see her super glam side,  remember that Myra is a major tomboy! Till she was about 15, she played football with neighbourhood kids, wrestled, climbed trees, went hunting. Her mum had to do an intervention before she started acting like a  “Cameroonian girl” should! “I don’t even know what that means but found out it meant a lot to my mum.  I like photography and beauty shots only because it’s art but in reality, you will rarely see any makeup on my face. I think it’s overrated.” states Myra.

Myra is scheduled to be performing at the FestAfrica free event in Silver Springs, MD on her album launch date next Saturday. If you are in the area, turn up, keep it turnt and have fun!

MMPR FOCUS: WOMAN THE MOVIE PREMIERE REVIEW…

Last month we witnessed something magical within the Cameroonian community. The coming together and the oneness in support of one of our own is to be commended.

The world premiere of Woman was held triumphantly early last month at the Odeon Cinema in Greenwich, London scratching its name in history as the first ever-Cameroonian film to be released in a UK cinema.

Woman is a lighthearted and easy-going storyline, which takes on the deep societal issue of adultery and betrayal in the marital home.

The film also celebrates love and friendship, the finding of self (by Dr Manga and wife Dr. Angoh Lobe), career success, humour and light comedy as well as brilliantly promotes tourism of the South West Region through its magnificent captures, its concise and precise scenic shots.

It is a film, which also uses known film techniques to narrate and bring to light the emotions of the characters. Their state of mind, their thoughts, so as to draw the viewers closer to the characters in order to incite in the viewers emotions of compassion, betrayal, loyalty and personal attachment.

An example of such technique is in the last scene of the film where Dr Manga is seen taking a reflective walk alone in the big park. The focus of the camera in the scene starts from being fuzzy and blurred to going very clear and focused. This alerts the viewers of the wandering, disturbed and lonely state of mind of the character as well as subtly informs them that probably a clear decision has been made by the Dr, which they will probably find out in the next sequence of the film.

Woman is directed by the renowned film and documentary maker Florence Nkeng, edited by the creative Mbeng Ngassa and produced by The Goretti Experience.

The film was mainly shot in Buea and Limbe with some scenes too in Kribi. The main characters are:

Dr. Manga Lobe –  Joe-Richard Pook

Mrs Angoh Lobe –  Goretti

Leke Asong – Epule Jeffrey

Mbolle – Ruth Nkweti

March 4th remains a night that I will never forget for as long as I live. The support I got from the UK Cameroonian community will stay with me for ever. Seeing your dream come true in bright lights and colour is truly validation to me that this is the path I was destined for.” Stated Goretti.
