Young Cameroonian showcase talent in Chinese singing competitions
On Sunday, fifteen young Cameroonians competed in a Chinese singing competition at a university to demonstrate their talent and Chinese language skills.
Krysten Ella won the "Voice of Cameroon" competition after dazzling 200 audience members at the University of Yaounde II with a fantastic rendition of a Chinese song.
"I am thrilled and excited because I did not expect to receive the prize. I'll show it to my parents so they can be proud of me. "This award will open many opportunities for me," Ella told Xinhua.
The gathering is "unique" since it is the first time young Cameroonians have gathered in such a fashion following the COVID-19 outbreak, according to Xue Xiaobin, director of the university's Confucius Institute, which arranged the competition.
Noting that the event's goal is to "improve Chinese language abilities among students," National Pedagogic Inspector of Chinese Language from Cameroon's Ministry of Secondary Education Didier Nama stated that young Cameroonians had shown an increasing interest in learning Chinese in recent years.
He said the event has further increased the mutual understanding and friendship between Camerounians and China.
