It is this wealth of experience that he has put in this album. He says he sings about love, about political awareness and honours political heroes like Oum Nyobe, Thomas Sankara and the likes. He sings in his native language, bassa and also in French and the English language.
His music he said is a mixture of traditional African music and western beats. The album cost 2500 frs and can be found only in some selected sales points in Douala as he says he is afraid of having his songs pirate. His songs are regularly played in some FM station in the Douala metropolis such as Ell FM.
