Impressive! Tell us about the Fashion side of your profession. What inspires you inspires you?
Life lol, Well actually grew up next to an uncle called Spee Arts who in my opinion was the greatest arts painter Cameroon ever had. He used to dress totally different from everyone, as a kid his style had a huge impact on me and I literally started creating my own lane in the fashion world. Fela Kuti also plays a part in my fashion inspiration. Oh! The movie Godfather as well.
After having achieved so much, what are your future plans?
My biggest dream is to have at least 30 companies and employ at least 189 youths before I am 35yrs old. This will be my way of supporting Africa and taking kids off the streets.
Do do you plan to do something apart from what you are already doing?
Sure looking forward to venturing into real estate in Cameroon. I also intend to impact the entertainment sector by starting a music record label. A Lil bit of acting would be an icing on the cake.
