On Friday he officially got signed to Universal Music Africa, joining Tenor as the second Cameroonian signed to the major record label and this landmark event in his career took place at Canal Olympia Bessengue, Douala.

Well the record label signing was not the only thing that brought out the artistes, his fans and various well-wishers. of the ”Booboo” crooner. He equally sealed an endorsement deal with the cognac brand Hennessy, giving him the status of a brand ambassador for the liquor brand in Africa.
