Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, accompanied by artists Joe Samy and Jude Ally were “caught up in the lime light of Telekreol live Open Mic television show “ Nou le la !”. Rated as the number one show on Telekreol, “ Nou le la! gained credibility by not only attracting a large audience, but also allowing people to phone in during its live broadcasts.
Johanne the host of the show asked her first question about Seychelles’ participation in Festival “ Liberte Metisse” – to which Minister Alain St.Ange answered ‘’Seychelles shares a common history of post slavery era with La Reunion”. “The diversity of our nation is the same diversity enjoyed by La Reunion Island” said Minister St.Ange.
Meanwhile, Joe Samy commented that “Seychelles and La Reunion are sister islands with common cultural and tourism assets”. Jude Ally’s first appearance in a live show was impressive. He took to the studio one of his paintings “Republic”, and when he was questioned by Johanne on the theme of his painting, Jude humbly said that it “the abstract painting reveals the state of destruction of a society’’. Amazed by the colourful emotions coming out of Jude description of his painting, Johanne shared with the audience her impression. It was then time for Joe Samy to stage his performance. With his guitar in his hand Joe Samy sung his “ Eau des Iles ‘’ song. Described by the presenter as “ invitation to Vanilla Islands’’ , Eau des Iles wowed the public. “ Nou le la!’’ also takes the audience to Seychelles, through airing of clips edited following 28th edition of Festival Kreol.
