Hello People..New Month, New post..
Meet the Lady behind ModeMaison PR
Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Cynthia Tabe, a proud “moh Manyu”! I grew up in Yaoundé but have spent the last 20 years living in the cosmopolitan capital city London. I run ModeMaison PR an agency based in Bonamoussadi, Douala.
What is MMPR?
ModeMaison PR is a buzz loving, fresh and forward new style communications, marketing, branding and rental/styling agency based in the hip upcoming quarters of Bonamoussadi in Douala serving primarily the entertainment and lifestyle industries. We provide public/press relations and marketing strategies to our clients, we also assist with branding ideas and tips as well as offer styling and rental services for video/photo shoots. In addition, we are capable of planning and managing small scale events on behalf of our clients.
A big congratulations on turning 1. Tell us the MMPR story
Thank you very much and thanks for the support you have shown us throughout the year. ModeMaison PR was inspired from my realisation that promoting/encouraging/building up people is what I love to do best and opening an agency became the natural step. I also have an entrepreneurial spirit which also inspires me to keep the hustle.
I got involved in PR not because I thought of why people needed it (the business side) but because I have a natural in born passon to drive/push people ahead so to enable them reach their full potential. This natural instinct then got me into PR (the industry side) and this later progressed to me deciding to make it professional (the business side) by opening up a PR agency which can serve many more brands. The benefits of PR are many and through our work we are starting to shift perceptions.
What have you been busy with lately?
We have been busy working on our clients especially VIRI, Stanley Enow and Ciana whom we are relaunching into the music scene. We are currently in talks to add more clients to our list which will be made public once everything is confirmed. We have also recently started working with Daddyblack who is such an amazing talent. We are very much open to long term and short term collabos and urge anyone interested to drop us a line or call us.
What are some of challenges you have faced so far and how have you overcome them?
The challenges are not many nonetheless can be detrimental. We need many more people to give up their time and start blogging so to increase Cameroon’s online presence and the quick flow of information. We need to start to trend online and to achieve this, we need many more people to talk/write about things. We are overcoming this challenge by making use of the platforms that are available while keeping our eyes out for more that spring up.

First Soiree IV
A few words about the Camer Music industry and entertainment as a whole to conclude.
The music industry is moving in the right direction. I am very impressed by some of the things I hear however what continues to bother me is how lacklustre people are with their image. Not many know what they are doing or even why they are doing it. But all said, I am happy to see brands who continue to shake up the industry by emerging with bold statements of their own forcing others to take note and therefore pushing the industry to move in the right direction.
