Welcome Jason it’s a pleasure to have you here today.
Jason: The pleasure is all mine. I must say you guys do great work so I’m honored to be here.
237xclusive : To begin with, the name Jason Saïdu Diakite doesn’t sound Cameroonian and we guess many have been wondering if you are truly a Cameroonian. So tell us what origins are you?
Jason: The surname Jason is just my artist name . Well Saïdu is Muslim because I am
Muslim and Diakite is Senegalese. I am originally from Senegal because my father is a
Senegalese. My mum on the other hand, is a Cameroonian and I was born and have lived all my life in Cameroon. So by virtue of birth and culture, I am a Cameroonian and I am very happy to be one.
237xclusive : As as fashion designer what are those skills you have acquired that have enabled or are enabling you to succeed? Jason: Creativity Creativity Creativity! The main skill is creativity. You need to be creative in your work because that is how you make a difference and to be creative you need to be calm. Once you’re calm and focused you can always get inspired to do good work.
237xclusive : What is your designing technique? That is, Do your create fashion trends or do you design according to what is trending at the moment?
Jason: It’s a combination of both because what is trending inspires me to design beautiful clothes. But also, you need to be genuine and original because that’s what makes the difference. That is why my motto is “Details make difference”.
237xclusive : Also we would like to know what made you choose fashion and designing over pursuing a career in Accounting which is what you studied while schooling in the Catholic University of Yaounde.
Jason: Hahaha…wow! Well before being an Accountant I am a fashion Designer . I chose
fashion designing long before I took a course in accounting. I only did accounting to be able to manage my career in fashion and designing properly because to every craft there is business. If you miss the business part of it you will not hit the billion.
237xclusive : Wow nice quote I’ll make sure to keep that in mind. How do you keep your customers coming? How do you handle customers services?
Jason: There actually is no definite method. You just have to always be up to date, original, creative and interesting. Interesting means your product should always call for attention. Also in the game of business the customer is king so treat them with all the respect they deserve because you will learn from them and without them you’re nothing.
237xclusive : You are 2nd Dauphin Mr World Cameroon and also 3rd Dauphin Man of The World Dubai. I must say that’s quite impressive. To whom or to what do you owe all these successes?

Today we have a very special person on our hot seat. Am very happy to be doing this today and before we start, Amah Bertrand, I must say am very proud of who you’ve become and all that you’ve set up for yourself. I saw this start from scratch and it has been an amazing journey so far. Now let’s get down to business.
Amah Fashion house is a fashion brand owned by the incredible Afro designer Amah Bertrand. At Amah Fashion house exclusively African outfits are made for both male and female. In the recent years, he has had the opportunity to dress high proﬁle Cameroonians for several events especially weddings and anniversaries. We had the privilege to have him on our platform for a brief interview and below was the outcome; so grab a glass of juice and enjoy the ride.
237xclusive: Welcome on board Mr Amah Bertrand. It’s a pleasure to have you here.
Amah B : Thanks alot .. I’m all red from your intro…the pleasure is all mine.
237xclusive: To begin with, What does Amah Fashion house stand for and why did u choose that name?
Amah B: Amah Fashion house is a big brand. The name “Fashion House” is like a tree with many branches or a house with many rooms. I choose that name because my brand is intended to have several branches. Already, you know about clothing line but subsequently we will be coming up with a modeling agency, Luxury boutiques and an event planning agency to cover events from clothing to refreshments.
237xclusive : That’s a great deal! So tell us…what are your goals, and what actually motivates you to keep working?
Amah B : Actually, it’s all about the passion. That’s what it’s always been about. Back in Nigeria when I was studying fashion and designing, I always loved to look good so I designed for myself, my friends and some high proﬁled people in their entertainment industry. They all appreciated my work and encouraged me. All of these have kept me going.
237xclusive : When did you discover your passion for designing ?
Amah B : I’ve always loved style. It all started when I was very young and it’s important for youths to know that you can actually make a living from your talent. The employment situation is not the best yet if you have the courage to make a living from what you love, from your handy work and being unique by having your own signature that all your clients can relate to, then you will succeed.
237xclusive : So what are the diﬃculties you’ve faced or are still facing , and how do you handle them?
Amah B :Like I tell everybody, before setting up a fashion business you have to make sure it’s a passion because it is very demanding. One of my major diﬃculties was to get the best team to work with because only the best team can produce the best results. Also, the product may not satisfy the client for example, it may either be too tight or to loose for their comfort and they get really mad and say bitter things to you which may make you question your work but with the grace of God all is well.
237xclusive : Where do you see the Cameroonian fashion and design industry 5 years from now?
Amah B : If I may say, Cameroon ﬁrst of all has made a large progress in the past three years. Cameroonians have discovered the value of their culture and the ability to live from their talent . In the next 5 years it will be better. By the way, the fashion industry is a Billion dollar industry so any one can invest in it as long as your passionate about it.
237xclusive : In your opinion, what is the best medium Cameroonians can use to promote their culture?
Amah B : The #1 medium the western world uses is the social media. I think the social media is the best way to promote anything you want to promote. The shut down of Internet connection in the NW and SW is the worst thing that could ever happen to the entertainment industry as a whole. The Bamenda Fashion week has been postponed because of that and many other thing have been brought to a halt because they wouldn’t have been effective if we don’t have Internet for people all over the world to participate live.
237xclusive : What advice can you give to young designers who intend on setting up a brand for themselves?
Amah B : The key words are…hard work, consistency and prayers. You have to work very hard to give your best each time you have the chance to, you have to remain consistent by learning everyday and staying at the top. Never be too comfortable; always try to evolve. Finally, prayer is the key because only God can bless your work and protect you because we are in a dangerous world.
237xclusive : Mr Amah Bertrand we are so grateful for your time. We pray and wish you all the best in your work.
Amah B: Thanks alot too…It’s a wonderful blog you have; may God bless you too.
