Apart from being a fine artist he also sings with the “Melting Age Band, MAB” in the company of the late Spee. He likes traditional African music.
His interest in painting started when he was a boy experimenting with ink from different pen colors, mixed and applied them on torn cardboards, which were sometimes hung on the walls of his mother’s sitting room. His mother invited Spee, a very famous artist to show him what the child was doing with the materials he could find in his milieu, thereafter the artist took him to his workshop, under his guidance so to better improve on his skills.

It’s rather an interesting story how all these marvelous paintings happened to come all the way to Las Vegas from Cameroon. The long version of events is detailed in my Africa Travel Journal. The short version of events follows.
I was visiting my long-time friend Rob, who in 2007 was working at the U.S. Embassy in Cameroon. I stayed for a month. We went on a road trip around Cameroon, which included a stop in the city of Bamenda, located in one of Cameroon’s two English-speaking provinces. Leaving the hotel in the morning, we noticed some remarkable paintings adorning the lobby area. These were unframed, just on simple wooden stretchers, but they sure caught our attention.
