BlackLion is a Germany-based Cameroonian singer and actor. He spent most of his childhood in Cameroon and did his elementary & secondary school education in a boarding institution. As a teenager BlackLion manifested his love for music very young, playing the guitar and drums. At nine, he was making mix-tapes for his friends at school. Exposure in the mid eighties to western music of black origin enabled the budding DJ that he was to broaden his musical spectrum. He later traveled overseas to pursue further education where he focused on improving his music & studied Media designing. Traveling experiences in both Africa & the West have given him the opportunity to work with people from various countries & cultures. The cumulative effect of all these encounters has been that his music is diverse and original.
