The guitarist-singer laments funeral arrangements by politicians instead of artists.

Everyone is happy with the organization of the funeral of Anne-Marie Nzié. The removal of the corpse of the Cameroonian music icon attracted many people on July 21, 2016 in the morgue of the Central Hospital of Yaounde. La Nouvelle Expression (LNE) cites among other some ministers present “Narcisse Kombi MOUELLE of Culture, André Mama Fouda of Health, Grégoire Owona of Labour and Social Security, Jacques Fame Ndongo of Higher Education, Mounouna Foutsou of Youth, or even Jean Paul Tsila, the SDO of the Mfoundi division “.

The newspaper also said that the party of Paul Biya, the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM) has even hastened to dispatch a delegation to the said funeral. There were also artists, but they are lodged in bad place. Well, that’s at least the opinion of Ngoye Jeca.

The guitarist-singer denounces the sidelining of artists in organizing the farewell to one that inspired more than one generation. Approached by LNE to his statement, he said: “Unfortunately, there is political recovery, they will not let us, the artists, organize her funeral. It’s the politicians who are at work, “laments the author of “Allez les Lions.

A situation that does not prevent Ngoye Jeca to pay his last respects to the deceased. “What I take from it is that it’s a mother who always had a smile. She never had her tongue in her pocket, she was true in everything she said. She always said people should give her everything they could in her lifetime, and not come decorate her body when she’s dead. I hold this franchise from her, “he said.

For his part, Ekambi Brillianthopes that Cameroon will still be a lady like her. But she is irreplaceable. She loved our craft, music, and had given everything for this. I think she is an example for artists, that is to say that we must love what we do to the end. More than half a century, is a lot. I am grieving. We will never forget her.

Eko Roosvelt on his side remembers the last moments spent with Anne-Marie Nzié. “We met for the last time in my concert. The latest on the occasion of the celebration of my 50 years of career past November. I invited her to sing and she sang with great difficulty. But she was there, present. Thai image, I will always keep. “
