“Around the age of 12, I fell from a tree. That earned me fifteen years in the hospital because of my poorly treated foot. My elder brother kept me company while playing the guitar … My song that lasted the longest was Liberte where I sang “Dieu nous a sauvés/ll s’est sacrifié pour nous/Aujourd’hui on souffre moins”. The texts corresponded at a time when African countries became independent, the song was perceived as rebellious … Today, succession is not really encouraging, the old die. Love, sadness, joy are my usual themes. I write the words first and I seek the voice that goes with it. “admitted on the 29 May 1998 Anne Marie Nzié to our colleagues in the French newspaper Liberation.
