Akwaya Boy A.K.A OKUNOL is a 2018 Taydays Award winning upcoming Cameroonian artiste who hails from Akwaya in the Southwest Region of Cameroon. The Buea based rapper was born in the village of Kembong in the year 1996.
The artiste who found his voice around hip hop tells us that Pidgin, English and French are the languages he is best in when he jumps on any instrumentals.

These are his words. “www.237showbiz.com blog is one of the best in Cameroon as they send out quality information about the 237music industry and also promote the new and upcoming talents and its the best medium of music download as far as Cameroon music blogs are concern.
