Afrinolly Short Film Competition Team Authors Emotional Tribute In Honour Of Komla Dumor. Check It Out Here!



Since BBC’s Komla Dumor passed on few days ago, many people have been left sad and depressed. The broadcaster, Komla was a judge in the ongoing Afrinolly Short Film Competition before his demise.

The Afrinolly Short Film Competition team has written a short tribute to Komla. The announcement of the list of winners for the competition has also been postponed in honour of Komla Dumor to Thursday, 23rd January. See the tribute below

A powerful storyteller with a very unique voice, BBC’s Komla Dumor represented the best of African broadcasters. We join the world in mourning one of Africa’s illustrious sons, a true gentleman, a man of foresight and a consummate professional who is passionate about anything that will further the progress of our continent; Africa, especially her youths.

Komla accepted to be a judge on the Afrinolly Short Film Competition without even getting to meet any member of the Afrinolly Team in person just because he was excited about what it means to African Filmmakers; that is the kind of person he is. As a judge, Komla was instrumental in selecting the finalists, in his words “Guys, I have finished reviewing the films and I must say all of them deserve commendation for the effort. Bringing it down to ten was difficult”.

We are awed by your simplicity, challenged by your vision to accurately tell African stories. We will miss your friendship, encouragement and support. Though we would have loved to have you around for years to come and especially for the closing ceremony of the Afrinolly Short Film Competition but God knows best. We will always carry you in our hearts.

Our condolences go to his family, friends, colleagues at the BBC and the people of Ghana who have lost a husband, father, brother, friend, mentor and son. Our prayers go to all who would miss this great son of Africa.

Adieu Komla! Rest In Peace

    You really make it seem so easy together
    with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually
    something which I believe I would by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I am having a look ahead on your
    subsequent post, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!

    If you’re really concerned about your car or truck then enclosed vehicle
    transport may be the suitable option. Is the complete cost as it is, or will there be additional charges.
    Also, request information from to friends and relatives for almost any advice on auto shipping services they
    will often have used in the past.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue
    that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt
    for something relating to this.

    Hi! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from
    my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might
    be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thank you!
