Cameroonian Artist Ambe, one of those threatened by activist Tapang Ivo, has reiterated he will always stand for the people.
Ambe shared his story online
“I’m from a very poor family, from Bafut, Bamenda. I grew up in abstract poverty and independently struggled to be where i am today, I know what it means for a people to suffer” he wrote, adding that he stands with the people because he sees himself in them.
“I’m ready to go to the streets whenever.The suffering is too much”
Last week, the #EndAnglophoneCrisis hashtag took more trends after the October 24 Kumba Masscre which saw atleast 8 children shot and killed at close range by unknown gunmen
Untill the moment of this writing, both government and separatists fighters had played pontus pilate over the killings, no one has accepted responsibility for the Saturday shooting
On social media, Cameroonians ran wild with their urgent demands for peace, calling out both the government and separatist fighters.
It called an attention from Continental and International figures like the Pope, African actors, footballers and artists
During a live video on Rebel TV, activist Tapang Ivo warned that some 5 artists had to be arrested if they didn’t stop an association to Cameroon
“Any Ambazonia artist belonging to Cameroun, be very weary because in the days ahead you’d be arrested” Tapang said in a live which followed with a list of artists under his radar including Stanley Enow, Magasco, Ambe, Mr Leo and Tzy Panchak
After Ambe, Artist Magaco responded in a subtle post when he reiterated that he was ready to hit the streets
“I am ready to hit the streets, any day, any time, I am with the people, fhe sufferings are too much”, Magasco wrote
But citizens aren’t happy with Tapang’s list and have expressed for disapproval
On social media, several people shared the video expressing anger over the threats
