O Cameroon, Cradle of Our Forefathers
The Chant de Ralliement (English: Rallying Song) is the national anthem of Cameroon. It was formally adopted in 1957, but since 1948, unofficially used before the country's independence.
The melody composed by René Djam Afame, who also co-wrote with Samuel Minkio Bamba and Moïse Nyatte Nko'o the words to do so. The text was changed in 1978.
