He was born in Cote D’Ivoire but was sent out to France, when he was five years old. He returned three years later because he was feeling homesick. His parents didn’t want him to live in the rapid poverty in his home country and immediately sent him back to France.
He began his career in the semi-professional team Levallois.
Ever since he moved to France, he’s been honouring his African roots: he used to eat African food, while in Europe, listen to African music and dance to the Ivorian coupe-decale.
He goes to both Christian Church and Muslim Mosque.
