Last night, I had the esteemed pleasure of watching a living Legend; a man who needs no introduction in the Music Industry.

A man whose music was sampled by icons like Michael Jackson and whose music continues to be sampled today.

Last night, I had the pleasure of watching Cameroonian saxophonist Manu Dibango in concert. Can I just say, AWESOME!!!

The concert was in honour of the legend’s 80th birthday and was hosted at The Barbican Center in London last night. I was so proud to see a huge turnout by Cameroonians- both young and old, who came to support their own.

Grand Manu had us on our feet for 2 hours; dancing to Soul Makossa and remembering how rich our Cameroonian heritage is while acknowledging his contribution to Jazz music. He’s brilliant!

He made us proud!
