Ebigwe Johnson Agbenjang

Johnson Ebigwe Production, #defyhatenow associate, Cameroon

Born in June 1992, Ebigwe hails from the Manyu Division of Cameroon’s South-West Region. He is presently a student of CAPS (Center for African Peace and Security) in Nkolmesseng, Yaoundé. Having been introduced to the #defyhatenow initiative in Cameroon at the Youth Peacebuilding Forum hosted by UNESCO in 2019, Ebigwe has become one of the initiative’s leading Peacebuilding Ambassadors and first community implementers of the ‚#defyhatenow Social Media Hate Speech Mitigation Field Guide‘. His particular needs and context require him to reach out to local, primarily offline communities of youths, women and marginalised groups to combat hate speech and incitement to violence which is spread online but often with direct impact offline.

His dedicated peace activism manifests itself through his professional training as a community skills and capacity builder, in script-writing and film production, and his passion in gospel stand-up comedy which he has been practicing since 2017.

The FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum is a series of events on current and overarching challenges and trends in peacebuilding. With the Peacebuilding Forum, we want to provide future-oriented impulses for the development of peacebuilding and strengthen the visibility and importance of the policy field in its entirety.
