kangquitusKang Quintus is a household name, at least since the start of this year. He has unarguably been one of the most prolific Cameroonian actors living in the diaspora. When he won the Cameroon Entertainment Awards, CEA best actor prize in July, little did the artist know it was the start of a now smooth ride in the area of talent recognition. Then, soon after he grabbed another award at the Cameroon Diaspora Awards, Kang picked up the same prize at the just-past Cam Movies Merit Awards. The Belgium-based actor is happy star, there is every reason to believe so. Perhaps, the joy he expressed at the Hotel Residence Carlos on Saturday November 17, 2012 is true testimony that Kang is on an upward ride towards success. TIPTOPSTARS cornered him, trophy-in-hand, to tell us what his secret was. He spoke to Carista Asonganyi in Buea. Exceprts

CA: Did you expect this victory?

CA: To whom do you dedicate this prize?

CA: What would you tell your fans?

KQ: I love all of them, they should expect more from me. This is just the beginning of better things to come.

CA: And to the organizer…
