Blick Bassy, the Cameroonian singer-songwriter, just released a new video for his song ‘Woñi’ off his latest album 1958, paying tribute to those who fought for Cameroon’s independence, such as anti-colonialist leader Ruben Um Nyobè. ‘Woñi’ is a testament to the search for a nation’s identity and is sung in the Bassa language, native to parts of West Africa.

Bassy’s album, 1958, marks the year that Um Nyobè was murdered by the French army after leading the Union des Populations du Cameroun (UPC) in its quest for national freedom.
