Talent is not acquire through formal education but can be developed through education. I know only God gave me all what I posses today.

I had dreams of being an orator, journalist, basketball player. I played basketball all through High school and college, practiced communication with radio houses and did alot of DJ’ing.

The whole team is very special. We work with the fear of the Lord which is the beginning of wisdom. We are passionate in what we do and  when you come to G3 Studios for whatever reason, you feel the spirit of love, team spirit  and family plus acceptance which is what other production studios lacks.
How will you define your success in the entertainment industry?
I have made progress with 2 Awards to my credit but I can’t really talk of success now because we are still at a foundation stage in Cameroon. I believe in the next few months I will be able to clearly count my success naming them 1 by 1.
What inspires you to keep going and how do you keep yourself motivated?
Hey, The Vision I have and the Talents our country posses is enough for me not to slumber. I believe in developing and enterprising talents. My greatest motivation comes when I find people who believe in my course, especially from my Team (G3 Studios staff). I work with a group of young men who hate mediocrity with a passion. We are good critics and believe in excellence. Together we believe the entertainment industry in Cameroon will stand its grounds.
What do you think your “biggest break” or “greatest opportunity” has been so far in your career and that of the G3 Studios?
My  greatest break and that of the Studio is yet to come
What genre of music do you as a producer to you prefer to work on? 
As a producer and engineer you are a lover of music no matter the genre, but I get most comfortable working on live Cameroonian traditional music.
Who are some of the artist you had the opportunity to produce in your studio .how can you access their success.[Tell us about  your works] 
We have worked with Guy Michel – runner up Africa Star 2010, Albert le Grand (Diamantaire), Tony Nobody – Canal 2 , Manekang , ADAH –(Cameroon’s  2face) He is super talented, Daddy Black – that voice like wycleff, he is a house hold name in Cameroon today. Tony Washington – the Koffi Olomide of cameroon, Kati Preston, TAO and many gospel groups and choirs like Togetherness, CYF Bastos etc
Guy Michel who was a candidate for Africa star is a Product of G3 Studios. How can you access your work with him and his genre of Music? 
Guy Michel is a super Talented artist, we began working together a long time before he went for Africa Star 2010 Edition which he finished 2nd place making Cameroon proud. He is bringing  another revolution in Cameroon music, Acoustic RnB, makossa- techtonic  fusion, with his ability to sing in English, French, Douala and pidgin, he is one of what Cameroon has been waiting for. Thumbs up to him.
What do you think about the Cameroonian Music and the Entertainment industry in General?
In the past, Cameroon has always been noted for its Makossa and its Bikutsi music  But our present generation  is ever evolving and its taking it to another level thereby creating a fusion.  If you check the last 3 years, all music awards in central Africa has been all around  Cameroon, 1st Nescafe 2008, 2nd Nescafe2010, 1st Africa Star 2008, 2nd Africa Star 2010, Bright phase Kora nominee 2008....we are going places. 
The Entertainment industry has been headed for so long by some people who have refuse to let young and inspired people head  the train, if they insist again we(young talented)  are gonna take the bus.
How do you select the artist you work with and how do you proceed with the Artists after recording?
Our artists are selected through criteria’s best known by the staff which is not yet public. After recording our Artist, the label has strategic plans which have been well spelled out which goes beyond national boundaries. These plans are kept safe in the interest of the artist and the label.
Can you tell us about how you market your artist and the distribution of their products? 
Our marketing and distribution techniques are clearly stated out and are available to those we are working with.

Could you tell us about the best moments of your life in The Entertainment Industry 
This is so simple because every morning I wake up is my best moment
Any advice to Aspiring Artists? 
Being an artist is like being a leader or a teacher and whether you like it or not people look up to you. So my advice is that, the talents you have in whatever artistic domain you belong are abilities freely given to you by God to help you carry out your responsibilities on earth; so use them wisely by doing the right things at the right time for the right reasons without your conscience telling you otherwise.
Do you have any one special you would like to thank for making your dreams come true? 
I thank God for choosing me to do what am doing. Big thanks to my parents and siblings. Very Big thanks to Rev SONG Yusimbom(Daddy), if not for  you...The great G3 Studios Team, who is like unto you guyz? thanks for making G3 our thing.
If you were to describe G3 Music studio in four words what would you say?
