Winning the Challenge Camerounais football tournament remains a major challenge for every football lover in Cameroonian circles in Germany and Central Europe in general.

The deadline for registration is 15.03.2023.

CC Disco Night
Our Guest star
CC Closing Night
The Challenge Disco Night is one of the great moments of the Challenge Camerounais. To make this great moment immortal, we will repeat it this year with the same DJs. After last year’s electrifying show, the award-winning duo DJ Louda (Paris) and DJ Pit Cool (Frankfurt) will be back on the decks on Saturday 27 May 2023 to present another arsenal of beautiful tunes that only they know.
How can you open up to the world and at the same time remain yourself through music? The answer to this question would be worth an Oscar. But Phillbill, whose real name is Diyani Bill Munyenge, has already answered it. If there is one Cameroonian artist who has best succeeded in embracing urban music while remaining rooted in classic Cameroonian rhythms like makossa and assiko, it is Phillbill.
This is why, true to its credo of celebrating Cameroonian culture in all its grandeur on an international scale, Challenge Camerounais is rolling out the red carpet for Phillbill, a bandleader, beatmaker, songwriter, singer, choreographer and producer at this edition.
Phillbill will be the headliner of the Challenge Closing Night on Sunday, 28 May 2023 in the hall of the Georg-Gaßmann Stadium in Marburg. Make a note of the date!
On Sunday 28 May 2023, from 10pm, discover an exclusive live show by Phil Bill and the best sounds from Africa and the world by DJ Louda (Paris) and DJ Air Force (Belgium) on a large dance floor and in the exclusive VIP area. Elegantly decorated, with a sound system worthy of an opera house and a unique atmosphere, the organisers have chosen the hall of the Georg-Gaßmann Stadium in Marburg as the setting for this prestigious evening.
Between taboos, discrimination and customs, albinos too often remain on the fringes of society, relegated to that level by prejudices relayed by others. This feature film, quite singular in the way it conveys its message, brings a different perspective on albinos in particular, and on all discriminated people in general. The main character, Vanessa, an albino living in precarious conditions with her parents, is illustrated by a strong personality, an iron will to pursue her dreams to the detriment of her social condition and the injustices she has suffered. His motto: Resilience.
Yaoundé, Cameroon, November 1996. Dieudonné Afana is a successful Cameroonian comedian known for his sketches as the whimsical and truculent Jean Miché Kankan. Despite his international fame, health problems linked to alcoholism, tensions within his troupe and financial difficulties will seriously jeopardise his future career. His only hope was to organise a show in the town of Nkongsamba. Will he be able to overcome his demons and find success again?
